On the 1900 census he gives his birth date as May of 1870.1,4 Leonard was baptized on 5 June 1870 at St. Joseph Church, Freeport, Stephenson, Illinois.1 Could I Have read the date wrong in the church record??? Or were the pages not dated??? Leonard more likely was born in 1869 as his father died in 1869.|
