Thanks Jared, lots here for me to look into. I personally believe John Leonard married twice and it becomes confusing as both were named Eliza and both the same age... However, if you break it down I think there were two of them...... I am the great granddaughter of Stephen and Norman VanTassell was my mothers brother. He passed away a couple of years ago. I assume there are no records at all with regards to the Alm's House to find out why Eliza was there and if there were any other family members that may have been a contact for her. I know times were rough back then and I feel bad if she was there for mental issues but I would really like to know.
Thanks for you help.
