This is reply to the story that the candy bar (Leaping Lena) made by the Bonita Candy Co. in Fond du Lac was named for Lena Sampson. I am Lena's youngest granddaughter and I was told by my grandmother that the candy bar was NOT named for her. This was just a saying among co-workers and friends and over the years it seems to have taken wings as being a fact. Grandma worked for the Bonita Candy Co. and it is easy to see why this rumor started. I was also told that Sitting Bull was my Grandfather and as a kid I believed it and told it to my schoolmates. See how things get started. This was my Aunt Irene and Mom joking.
