Great! my husband Leo Gordon Black is the one related to the Lease family- Tobias is a brother to his Lydia Ellen Lease. I have in my records from a late family member their parents were Jeremiah Heriod b 1802 Md m ca 1824 to Mahala Belford(there's quite the controversy on how to spell her last name) I've seen Bedford-Belfry-etc. He d 1862 Holt Co M. she b 1804 d 1864 Mo.
I have one of Tobias'kids as Newton Tobias Lease who was the father of a slew of kids of which we knew several from visits to Great Falls and in California where we once lived.
From the Great Falls Mt. Highlands Cemetery the Lease Plot has the following in it:
N.T. Lease d 7 Aug 1865 Was a Mason
Nettie C. Lease b 31 Oct 1872 d 30 June 1965
Was Eastern Star
Esther Marie Lease,daughter b 21 July 1893 d
27 /Sep 1905
Catherine M Lease b 21 June 1867 d 13 Mar 1947(either a sister or sister-in-law of N T
Isabelle M Lease b15 Sep 1894 d 22 May 1984
Tom Lease d Oct 1990 in Calif. and ashes scattered over Gr Falls Mt Highland cemetery.
Do you have the list of the other children of Newton T. He had a slew of them as well.
My husband's mother came to Great Falls Mt as a young girl from Holt Co Mo to be a governess to these children.She was a cousin to these children. Lydia Ellen Lease and Daniel Wilson were her grandparents. Please answer
