I'm searching for information on my great-grandfather, Percy Warren Leland. He grew up primarily in Gilmer, TX, but lived at least part of his life in Gladewater. He was born in 1885 and died on March 7, 1934 as a result of an explosion at a plant in Gladewater. His father was John D. Leland, mother Laura Jane Sims Leland, brother Clarence, sisters Minnie (McClelland), Mrs. H.P. McGaughey and Mrs. Sidney Barnwell. I assume he was buried in or around Gladewater - any information would be appreciated.
