I haven't got Helen's email address with me (I'm in Morocco) but I'll write to her and pass on your message. All our combined research is with her in UK and at my home in Australia.

My direct Leeman ancestry was something like John -Pooler - Pooler....George - Robert - George - William John (1867-1934) William James Townsley (1895-1949) me (1945 -). I think Robert was a Navan owner, if not George. My family lost Creeverow when my great grandfather George died of cold following a drinking bout. Rosebrook is another Leeman farm next to the Navan (the present family spells their name Leemon). Helen is connected to them. I used to write to James Leeman, owner of the Navan in the late 1960's, but he died in 1972.
I found Helen (my sixth cousin once removed)by writing to all the Leeman families around Armagh. I got their names from the telephone directory. Other families with Navan Leeman ancestors are the Barrs and Archbolds.
