Leatherwood Family Genealogy Forum
In "History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography, Vol III" by Thomas McAdory Owen and Marie Bankhead Owen; published in 1921 by the S.J. Clarke Publishing Company, Chicago, was a biography about Bryan Brockway Cooper b., 3-13-1859 near Gaston, Sumter Co, and it said he married Ella Leatherwood, daughter of John Washington and Jane (Burton) Leatherwood of Tuscaloosa; granddaughter of Miles Leatherwood who lived and died in Tuscaloosa County, and of Ephraim Burton who lived and died in Greene County; great-granddaughter of Jesse Leatherwood of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
I have read on this forum that Miles was the son of John B. Leatherwood and Priscilla Calvert. However, I have noted that Miles was not mentioned in John B. Leatherwood's will. This biography of Mr. Cooper indicates Miles' father was Jesse, not John. Does anyone know for sure?
