Re: Olpha Q. Leonard 1874-1950

In Reply to: Olpha Q. Leonard 1874-1950 by Nancy Davis of 798

If Olpha and Elsie had children we can't find them. Frank died the year he was born according to the family legend.
Looks like Elsie and Olpha died the same year and they were aged Olpha 75 Elsie 60.Elsie commited suicide. Oct 1850
There is a Elsie Leonard b 1899 d 1950 buried in the Leonard plot at the Batavia Union Cemetery, Where Olpha is buried that may be his wife. We have the name Goldia and there is a Goldie surname. The only problem is the birth date. She could be Olpha's wife.Sometimes we are just too close to a problem to see the problem? Thanks for your interest.

Hi Phyllis, Olpha LIVED in Kentucky for a while. Here is what I found in some of my old notes.

In 1900 he is 24 and living in Batavia with his mother and sisters.

In 1910 he is in the town of Owenton KY.,he is 35 years old and married to a women named Goldia O Leonard. They have been married for two years which means they were married in 1908. She is 23 years old. so born in 1887.in Ohio. They are renting and his occupation is listed as printer for news offices. His name is Quinlan in the census.

In 1912 he attended Amelia Dials funeral in Ohio.(His sister) The obit didn't mention his wife but said he came from Owenton KY.

1918 WW1 draft card name spelled Alpha Quin on the index.Plesant Hill, Miami Co. Ohio Born July 31, 1874 ,and Goldia is listed as his wife.occupation, printer with Riese Printing Co. Says he is suffering from a Hernia. He is med height, med build with blue eyes and dark brown hair. Signature is Olpha Quinn Leonard.

In the 1920 census they are still in Pleasant Hill. He is 45 and still listed as a printer, renting, no children.
In the 1930 census he is in Batavia living with Eva and Pearl his sisters. He is divorced and listed as the Deputy Auditor for the County and is 54 years old.

I wonder what their connection was in Kentucky?
Elsies parents were James L. Pettit and Lulu Mefford.
I just don't get it. But I love this stuff!! Nancy

This is what we found. I can't figure it out yet, but still trying. Don't know if Elsie was his wife.Maybe she was Goldie ?
