      There are two Abraham Leonard's in the Tax list of 1799-1804 (Abraham of Sharon/Ovid and of Whitehall). There is a John Leonard in Ovid a few years before Abraham and there when Abraham moves to Ovid - I believe this John was born 1764 in Somerset Co.,NJ and had a large family that lived in Ovid,NY. This is very possibly a brother of Abraham.
      Also the Solomon Leonard in Hector in the early 1800's, his second son he named Abraham(b.1792)...possibly a brother??

      Probate Record:

      Transcriber Helena Howard researched and transcribed many cemeteries in the 1950’s in what is now Schuyler County (Hector originally part of Tompkins County) and she wrote the following about Eddy Cemetery:

      "The land where this cemetery is located was once owned by Abraham Leonard. In 1816 he sold 15 acres to his son-in-law William L. Smith. When William died in 1820 he asked (in his will) to be buried on the rise to the east of his house. Recently the cemetery was visited by a relative of William Smith, but his stone was no longer visible. Abraham Leonard's stone was found broken."
