Just read a copy of History of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania by John N. Boucher, New York, Lewis Pub. Co., 1906 vol. 3 p. 379.
the topic is Abraham Leasure:
"Abraham Leasure, the great-grandfather of Mrs. Leonard Byers, was the founder of the family in America, also in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. He came from Wales, and upon locating in Westmoreland county took up a large amount of land in the northeastern portion of Mount Pleasant township, comprising about four hundred acres, and conducted agricultural pursuits-thereon. His death occured at an advanced age. His son, Daniel Leasure, spent his entire life in Westmoreland county, and died upwards of seventy years. He owned about 300acres of the homestead, was a prosperous farmer, and an active member of the Presbyterian church, serving many years in the capacity of elder. His wife, Margaret Leasure, bore him the following children:"
I'll outline the following -
Mary m. James Martin
Elizabeth m. William Chambers
the text continues:
"William, son of Daniel and Margaret Leasure, also spent his entire life in Westmoreland county...He married Martha Trauger, who bore him one child, Daniel, who became one of the prominent physicians of the county. After the death of his first wife he married Margaret Heck, daughter of Philip and Margaret Heck,"
and these are their children:
Matilda (twin) m. Andrew Robinson
Lucinda (twin) m. David McCauley
Elizabeth m. John Keepers
Margaret m. Leonard Byers
William of North Dakota
Sarah m. David Markle
Jesse of Unity Twp., Westmoreland county, PA
"William Leasure, the father of these children, died in 1891, aged ninty-one years."
the text goes on to talk about the Byers family
Now - Was Margaret the wife of Daniel or William d. 1891?
Did Daniel son of William d. 1891 marry a Margaret?
My records do not show Martha Trauger as the mother of Daniel Leasure physcian - his mother was Rachael Cannon?
Did William, son of Daniel and Margaret, marry three times?
Also - Which Abraham Leasure was from WALES???!!!
Which one was from Switzerland? and which one was from France????
