Hi distant cuz, I don't know you but I sure knew your granddad. He was my dads brother.My father was Dale. He was the youngest. I probably know less than you because I just got a computer so I'm only starting. But hope either you have some lost info or have access to someone that does. When I was a little girl {many years ago) either aunt Jean's or aunt Vera's husband said they had looked up our Leaver roots. I could never find the paper years later after dad died. What I remember He said the first Leavers that came over on a boat were really LeOver. There was a Mispelling to LeAver.Later it was just spelled Leaver. He also had some info on some that had married into the family,Something like Vandemeer or Vandiver or close to that. I had never heard of Wales before. I, like you cannot find past the revolution. I'm so glad I found you on the web, it's a jungle out there. Which one of Wayne's children do you belong to? He and my dad died within months of each other and I was In Germany, and mostly I haven't seen any of them in years. By the was I was also told that Minnetta's mother ran away with a circus and she raised her siblings. I have pictures I'll be glad to share but later I still don't have a scanner and printer.

Peace and Love Sandy
I'm in Erin Tennessee now
