I realized that the 1870 census is now available at ancestry.com, so I took a look in both 1870 Frankford and in Red Rocks (where the Burdicks were living and which also contained Browndale in 1880 where Leonard and Hattie were living). No luck. I rechecked the 1880 census and it was stated there that Leonard was born in NY with his parents in NY and MA, both with question marks. Perhaps Hattie answered the census taker and didn't know (Leonard is listed as a laborer that year). I think at one point I did check the 1870 Minnesota census index also to no avail. I wonder if he is anywhere to be found in the 1875 census???
I should also probably get the marriage record. That may yield more clues. I will put it at the top of my orders from the LDS library. It is necessary to complete Hattie's story anyhow.
His whereabouts are very mysterious. When the Minnesota death index went online, I checked to see if I could find a death record. No Leonard Anibal in any possible configuration. Either he had moved out of state, or died before 1908, or no one bothered to record his death.
