On This Day: September 3


1726: One of my maternal 5th great-grandfathers, Caleb Leonard, son of Benjamin and Hannah (Phillips) Leonard, was born in Dighton, (now) Bristol County, Massachusetts. He died 18 March 1814 in Beallsville, Washington County, Pennsylvania. [Source: Joiner, Rev. Darrell and Sallyann (carver@ime.net), Cary Family History.]

Both Caleb Leonard, and his son, Caleb Leonard, Jr., are buried in the Old Section at Beallsville Cemetery; however, the senior Leonard’s tombstone is no longer standing. On July 28, 2008, Debbie Day posted a map and information regarding the location of Caleb Leonard’s grave, as well as a photo of the younger Leonard’s tombstone, on her Beallsville Cemetery and Washington County PA Genealogy Research Blog.
