I have been researching in Morris County NJ also.
These families of Ward - Grove - Leonard and others have been found in the Southern Counties of Ohio. Your John G. Leonard is John Grove Leonard I am pretty sure. This John Grove Leonard was in Scioto County Ohio 1820 Census. Hope
this sheds light on your research.

I am researching Robert Willis, born about 1843-45 in New Jersey reportedly and died 1898 Seattle, WA. In my research, I came across John M. Willis, born 1804 NJ, who seems to be related to the Willis families of Hanover Twp., Morris Co., NJ. John M. Willis had a son Robert, born 1845, who is not my proven ancestor, but I just keep on researching. In the 1880 census of Boone Co., MO, John M. Willis is living with his daughter, Emma N. WILLIS Cromwell, and in the household is S. Leonard, male, born 1856 New Jersey, a cousin.
