    Notes 
    • 1820 Census - Marietta, Ohio - Abram Leonard (no children listed)
    • this may not be Abraham, however he was in Ohio about this time -- see 1822 land sale
    • 1822 Land (Seller) – Hector, NY – Lot 57, 81.5acres, $1500 - Abraham Leonard & Olive his wife, of Hector to Abraham Leonard Jr, of Warren, Ohio
    • 1828 Land (Seller) – Hector, NY – Lot 57, 2.75acres, $47 - Abraham Leonard Jr and Margaret his wife, of Hector to Richard Hale, of Hector
    • 1830 Census – Hector, NY - Abram Leonard Jr. – 1(Male<5); 2(Male5-9); 1(Male10-14); 1(Male40-49); 1(Female<5); 2(Females10-14); 1(Female15-19); 1(Female20-29). -Next door to John and Abram Sr. (near Eddy family) - I believe the ‘Male40-49’ may be an error (Abram Sr not likely have a son this old).
    • 1833 Probate Record - Named in Abraham (1770) Will of 1833 as Abraham Jr. - 1833 Land (Seller) – Hector, NY – Lot 57, 7.5acres - Abraham Leonard and Margaret his wife to Silas H. Havens, of Hector Note: No longer uses the ‘Jr’ on his name
    • 1840 census- Hector, NY - Apparently living in different location than in 1830 Hector, now next to Cummings, Kelly, Wiggins, VanDuser, Coddington, Pixley. - Abram Leonard, 1(Male<5); 1(Male5-9); 2(Male10-14); 2(Male15-19); 1(Male40-49); 2(Females<5); 1(Female5-9); 1(Female10-14); 1(Female40-49)
    • 1844 Land (Seller) – Hector, NY – Lot 48 - Abraham Leonard and Margaret his wife to John H. Coddington, of Hector
    • 1844 Land (Seller) – Hector, NY – Lot 57, 81.5acres - Abraham Leonard and Margaret his wife to John H. Coddington, of Hector
    • 1850 Census – Catherine, Chemung Co., NY – shows son, Abraham Jr.; daughter. Harriett (b.1834) and wife Margaret (as well as other children). - Census was taken Sept 12th – Harriet died in August1850. However, the census is taken for the count of persons “whose usual place of abode on the first day of June, 1850, was in this family” - therefore Harriet named in the household in September was the Harriet that died in August. Also, explains why she was listed last in the household (children usually in order by age).
    • 1850 Cemetery marker - Harriet d/o "Abraham and Elmira" 1834-1850(Aug) - Montour Falls Cemetery, Schuyler Co., NY Not 100% certain on this - eventhough Harriet is shown the census of 1850, possibly Margaret went by Elmira as well and error another place.
    • 1855 Census -Rushford, Allegany Co., NY – 3 years in town - Abram (60 Schoharie Co.); Margaret (wife 60 NJ); Elisabeth(child 36 Ohio); Eliza (child 27 Tompkins); Harvey (child 23 Tompkins); Adaline(child 19 Tompkins); Madison (child 16 Tompkins)
    • 1860-1870 Census- Woodford Co., Illinois (wife Margaret and children)
    • 1879 Cemetery Marker – Gilbert Cemetery, Saline Co., Nebraska
    • 1879 Probate Record names son Abraham - Names Children: Abraham G., Betsey, Mary, Catherine, John, Solomon, James M, and Harry.
