I just found out that IRA's father, unknown first name, last name LEACH, may have been a very good woodworker on fancy hotels in the area back in the early 1900's. He may have travelled to Hot Springs area to do some work for hotels. During the pregnancy, IRA's father left and never returned. It is thought that his parents were married, but according to some family, the place where the records were kept in Hot Springs may have burned down???
Hopefully this helps better!
