My husband is distantly related to George and James Leaver.
They are great,great,grand uncles of his. They were the younger sons of Yhost Lever (German immigrant) who settled in Randolph Co, Ind and Bangor, Van Buren, Michigan.
Both brothers served in Company A of the 84th Indiana Reg during the Civil War. They both received homestead patents. I am seeking any oral history traditions, and newspaper articles re these brothers. Especially, any photographs or tombstone markings. Would greatly appreciate any help from
local residents of Marilla. Sincerely, Barbara Leever
