I am confused as to whether Leonard and Lewis are actually the same person. Leonard/Lewis was born in Potter County, Pennsylvania in either 1846 or 1848, the son of Robinson Nelson and Clarissa Reed. He (as Leonard) migrated to Rock County circa 1860, where he lived with his sister and her husband in Avon Twp. He enlisted in the 17th Wisconsin in 1864, was wounded in Georgia and mustered out at Camp Randall in 1865. In 1869, he married Mary Finch. Thereafter,(as Louis) he is found in Janesville married to the former Mary Finch and father of their several children. He (as Leonard) filed for invalid status and a pension and continues to be documented as Leonard in in his pension file until he dies in Long Beach, California in 1923 of a bladder tumor.
If any one has any information about this, I would be very glad to hear it.
