Thomas Leasure - Mercer Co., PA
Posted by: Dean Montgomery (ID *****8846) Date: October 01, 2005 at 11:37:34
  of 841

Looking for any information on Thomas Leasure / Leisure. Thomas married Isabella Montgomery daughter of William Montgomery (1751-1825) and Nancy Nichols (1754-1822). Isabella Montgomery was born about 1799 in Chartiers’ Creek Allegheny Co., PA or Wolf Creek, Mercer Co., PA. She married Thomas about 1818 in Wolf Creek Twp., Mercer Co., PA.

Thomas Leasure, recorded as 26-45 years old, is found in the 1820 census of Wolf Creek Twp., Mercer Co., PA with a female 16-26 years old and one male less than five years old. I have not been able to locate them in the 1830, 1840 or 1850 censuses anywhere. In the 1820 census Leasure is spelt with an “a”.

In the Montgomery family bible Isabella is recorded as marrying Thomas Leasure/Leisure; either the date is not given or it is illegible. I do not have nor have I seen the original bible. In William Montgomery’s (Isabella’s father) will written 16 Dec 1825 and proved 03 Jan 1826 Isabella is referred to Isabella Leisure. In William’s will Leisure is spelt with an “i".

William Montgomery’s (1751-1825) grandson William B. Montgomery (1823-1890) of Wolf Creek Twp., Mercer Co., PA married about 1840 Elizabeth A. Leisure (1825-1876); both lived and died in Wolf Creek Twp., and they are buried in Amity Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Irwin Twp., Venango Co., PA. Who Elizabeth’s parents were is unknown, but my guess is she might be the daughter of Thomas and Isabella.

I have nothing further on Thomas or Elizabeth Leasure/Leisure.

Any help would be appreciated.
