My family has a roadblock involving the parents and spouse of Ellenor Leonard, aka Ellen and Nelly. She went to great lengths to hide the names of her spouses. We know the name of the second, James Boyles. Still she kept her name and the name of a child born from the second marriage as Leonard. I think William Leonard, who married Elizabeth Clark in 1802 in Nelson County, could be her parents. Today I found a marriage record in the Hardin County Clerk's office where her son, John T. Leonard married Angela Gasaway in 1855. The minister wrote a certificate that stated that John T was born in the house of William Leonard in Nelson County in 1833. Does anyone have info on William and Elizabeth Leonard, Ellenor's birth in 1802, her first marriage, possibly to a man named Hessee, and the birth of three of her children, Elizabeth, Franklin Bonaparte, and John T. all under the Leonard surname.
