Email from Sandy Schmoyer at Schmoyer.aol.com on 1/2/2002 at 20:15:08 EST

Rita, I hate to disappoint the Family Tree Maker, but the Leh Family that you are talking about is far from the unknown Leh family. I take this family all the way back to Heinrich Lee, born 1575 in Glattfelden, Switzerland. Adelina Leh, daughter of Samuel Leh, is my first cousing 3 generations removed. Samuel Leh's brother was Joseph Leh, who was my great, great grandfather. How are you related to Adelina Leh? (I believe that Samuel and Joseph's brother, Joh Henry Leh is part of the H. Leh & Company which was a department store in Allentown, ... I tried to talk to on of the store's descendants and he proceeded to tell me that of course we were not related. ... Oh well, at least I can trace my family back to 1575, and probably his family too. I have the descendandy of Heirich Lee forward 13 more generations. Hope to hear from you soon. Sandy Schmoyer.
