Leonard Eddleman/Edelman/Edleman was born or near Hagerstown Maryland after the Rev. War , went to Greene county,Tn married Charity Bowman. Moved to Harrison county, Ky with children. He went to Rush county, Indiana in 1830 census, living by son Alexander. He applied for his Rev. War Pension there. His wife died in Rush county, Indiana and he went back to Harrison county, Ky by 1840. He is found living with his other son Aaron Eddleman 1840 census. I think he died after that.
