Yes, I think an adoptiion would, unless the biological father was also Wyandot.
Hold off on paying the $40. I have a subscription to the census and am presently checking the Wyandotte Co., Kansas 1860 census (line by line!!). I'll let you know if I find anything.

Isaac Jr's will is not online. I do have it though: it does list Eli Leslie as a son, so that generation is taken care of, I think. Now to prove that Elias was son of eli Leslie.
