John cash-claimed a quarter in 30, 5N 46W in 1891.
That land was foreclosed in 1907 by James N. Brown, plaintiff, vs. John Leech, L.W. Tulleys, Trusttee, J.V. McDowell, and Clarence K. Hesse, trustee. for $ 400.

In 1880 Harlan County, Nebraska, James Leech is 51, Lowesey 46, John H. 21, Mary 14, and Nathan 11.

John Leech is in 1885 Harlan County, Nebraska, 25, with parents James 58 and Lowrey 52, both born in Kentucky, brother Nathan 17, both born in Iowa.

looking for a marriage record for CLARENCE C. ROWLEY. I believe that his wife LILLY ANN is another daughter of JAMES T. LEECH and LOUISA REYNOLDS. CLARENCE C. ROWLEY and his father WALTER E. ROWLEY bought land in Section 19 of Lincoln Township, Franklin County in 1878; they can be found in that township in both the 1880 and 1885 censuses. Section 19 is on the Harlan County line. Many thanks. Steve Leech [scleech@comcast.net]
