I'm descended Thomas, Daniel, Japhet, Robert, Jonathan, Daniel, James, Amy, then several generations of Conovers.
I was recently in Atlantic Co, and was delighted to find Jimmie Leeds Road just north of Absecon. The books say it's named for an area landowner, a "lesser known relative" of the Jeremiah Leeds (Thomas, Daniel, Japhet, John) line which was instrumental in early Atlantic City.
Does anyone know which James Leeds was Jimmie Leeds, of the road?
Second question: My James Leeds lived 1794 to 1872, had 3 wives & lots of kids. He's buried at Absecon Presbyterian with wife #3 and 2 babies, one (Feb 24, 1839-Sep 8, 1839) by wife #2, Dorcas Adams, and one (July 15, 1842- Oct 21 1843) by wife #3, Martha Connelly. Both babies named Daniel Owen. Was there a third Daniel Owen Leeds who lived? One chart I have shows a birth year of 1844.
I'm especially interested because my g-g-grandfather, James L. Conover, named his first son Daniel Owen, and he would have been a contemporary of the 1844 Daniel Owen Leeds (who would have been his uncle). James Conover's family moved to Ohio in 1849 or 1850, and the Leeds family stayed in Absecon.
Third question: Does anyone know where the Leeds people in this line, but prior to James Leeds (and including his first 2 wives) were buried?
