Melissa, just in case I have trouble with your email, I thought it be best to post here too. I am a stickler for documentation! I have a copy of George Washington Leach's Will where his children are all listed. We (a few other family researchers)were totally surprised about Lydia's maiden name. The family reported it as WATT, but we could never find out anything more about her until I came upon someone's reference to a Will of Philip's mentioning her as Lydia Leach and his daughter. Someone else then sent me by email the transcription of it. We still had a hard time believing it, but then I did a bit of Census research and found that all of her "siblings" lived around Lydia and George Leach! I have her birth information, which I posted before, but I have no idea how it was confirmed other than it appears on her tombstone. A deceased elderly relative had done much research before he passed away in the late 1970's by having interviewed relatives over the years--his mother would have been a grandchild to them. He only had his notes, no actual documentation, but much of it has proven to be true as we have been able to document it. Anyway, I would much like to hear from you again. I am very interested in finding out more about the WOLLET family.

By the way, under children, William is actually Lydia and George's grandson, not child. We too made that mistake early on, but he is actually their daughter Mary's son by her first marriage to an unknown Grear. William's full name is William Otto Grear and he is a Civil War Vet.

I descend from Lydia and George's son John H. Leach and he married Elizabeth McClure.
