    Notes 
    • The relationship between Leonard and John C. is a theory at this point (11/27/07).
    • In 1870, Leonard is enumerated w/ new wife Caroline and 12 year old boy, Green. Not sure of Green's relationship to Leonard. At 12, Green is too young to be Anna's son? Leonard & Caroline were married in 1869 so he's not her son? (4/12/10)

  • Notes 
    • Note: The placement of Leonard as the son of William Frye is currently a theory and I have no definitive proof. I am still working on trying to figure out if this is the right placement. Also, census evidence and ages of Nathaniel & Leonard may suggest the two are brothers, but this too I have not yet documented with proof (January 16, 2010).
