I actually knew "uncle Willie". When I was young I would go with my father and see him in the park in Baraboo Wisconsin, next to the war cannon. I was only 5, but I remember him as a rather tall, white haired and distinguished looking man. He was very elderly and would spend the summer days on a park bench enjoying the day. I am the great grandson of Robert. My grandfather was Thomas Evan, who was abandoned by his father and lived with Evan, and Willie at times in North Freedom. My father was Willis Earl Leece. I have two sons, one of whom is Dr. Thomas Christian Leece.
