Gresham circa 1860; Why did James name his son John Gresham if he is not the other Leland mentioned on pg 19.777 He died circa 1900.778
I have taken liberties with J.A.C.'s manuscript, in marrying James to an unknown Gresham, otherwise why name his son John Gresham. According to J.A.C., on page 19-
"The farm of 100 acres owned by Mrs. Amadee and her sister Mrs. Davis and their Aunt, is part of a Glebe farm of 1000 acres that was set apart for the use of the minister, presumably Jno. Leland. This farm was sold by the Diocese in 1788 to a Mr. Gresham and remained in the Gresham family until confiscated at the close of the Civil War, perhaps by connivance of carpet baggers and local people. Shortly before the Civil War, two Gresham girls married two Lelands, Charles W. and John Peachy. After the confiscation the widows bought back 100 acres including the house, built before the Revolution and still standing. The above, which is from Mrs. Amadee, relayed by Mrs. Madge Leland Cochran, does not coincide with other information that Charles W. Leland married Willie Ann Harcum. He may have been married twice, or there is some misunderstanding" before 1863 VA.779

In a letter to John Augustin Charles Leland ll she wrote in 1940:

My dear Mr. Leland:

Mrs. Milton Standley of Carrolton, Missouri forwarded your letter to me. I married her brother many years ago and have a son Leland.

I am a granddaughter of John Dudley Leland. He came to this state from Virginia fully one hundred years ago - for my father Dr. John Dudley - was the youngest child of thirteen and was born in this state Mar. 4th, 1844 I think. My grandfather was a member of the House of Representitives in Virginia before coming to Mo.

I am not sure I can give the names of the children. John, oldest (My father was Wm. Fredrick but was quite small when his oldest brother passed on and his name was changed to John Dudley). Chas. who I understand went to California and after a time ceased to write home - and later word came he had told some man he was going to cross a creek. This was very high at the time and he was never heard of again so Grandmother Leland gave him up for dead. Virginia died without issue. Marcella, Cornelia, Eugenia, Maria and Lucy Carey - for whom I was named. Grandfather came to Fayette, Missouri, where he died. One night he was going over a case in court and . . . . .

My father was a dentist and we moved to Carrolton when I was a little girl. On one of my visits in Cal. I saw a young lady named Juliet Leland - and she looked exactly like a cousin of mine named Juliet. This was at the "Glendale Sanitarium" where she was giving a concert. I am wondering if you are a descendant of Uncle Chas, who as I said before went to Calif.?

Grandmother Leland was Sarah Gaskins of Virginia. She was always very proud of being a cousin of Geo. Washington. Her ancestor and Mary Ball Washington's mother were half sisters - this brought down to Sarah Gaskins, wife of Judge John Leland, in the Ball Family.

My father had three children - Joseph Page; Cora Harrison - both these names are from the Page side - and my own, Lucy Cary - a family name on the Leland side.

I cannot go any farther back than Grandfather, but there is a tradition in the family that the oldest son was always called John Dudley and until my Grandfather was either a minister or a bishop in the Episcopal Church - the family were all Episcopalians.

I should be glad to answer any questions I am able and if you have any information about the earlier ancestors would appreciate any facts about them.

Since writing the above I have talked with my sister and she says she thought the Uncle who went to California and never returned was Henry, and that later the family received a notice of his death. This was years later than his supposed drowning.

There are so few of this branch of the family - my brother Page the only one bearing the family name, is the only one left and he has no children.

I hope this information will be of some service to you.

Cora and I are housemothers in the Mo. State School for the Blind in St. Louis, Mo.

Sincerely yours (Mrs) Lucy Leland Rea  3815 Magnolia Ave., St. Louis,, Missouri.883

Children of Lucy Carey5 Leland and (--?--) Rea were:
