Hi Susan -

Thanks for your message. I didn't realize that we should place only the most recent married name on the record name. Thanks for correcting me.

P.S. RE: Memorial #71410866 - Joseph Pearl Leach
I meant to say thank you for the information about Emma. All things considered, I understand now why Emma's children with James came to regard Minnie as their mother. The original marriage records for two of the three children in fact lists Minnie, not Emma, as mother.

RE: Memorial #71410866 - Joseph Pearl Leach
No wonder I couldn't find a death certificate for Emma, but I do wonder why James said he was widowed. Well, since his mother was living with him in 1920, and he likely was out at work, perhaps his mother just chose to regard Emma as dead.

RE: Memorial #71410866 - Joseph Pearl Leach
Thank you Susan. Since writing to you, I did find the 1920 census, which of course says that Joseph's father was then widowed. Also, however, I found his father's first marriage record and WWI draft registration. The draft registration gives his father's birth date while the marriage of course is more pertinent to Joseph's half siblings:

Probate Court Register of Marriages for Jackson Co., OH, vol. O (1908-1913), p. 307, #8724: James Pearl Leach, blacksmithing, age 22, m. 28 Jan 1917 in Methodist Episcopal Church to Emma Pearl Swyers, age 19; neither previously married; both b. in Jackson Co. & living in Jackson, Jackson Co.; groom's parents: Elmer [sic] Leach and Katie McDaniel; bride's parents: James Swyers and Maggie Ewing. (Yes, the original marriage register gives Pearl as a middle name for both James and Emma.)

World War I Draft Registration:
James Pearl Leach, age 29, living in Springfield, OH; b. 21 Mar 1888 in Jackson Co., OH; locomotive fireman for Big Four RR Co. 23, Springfield; married with 3 children; tall, slender, with grey eyes and dark hair; signed "James Pearl Leach" 5 Jun 1917 in Springfield, OH

Memorial #71410866 - Joseph Pearl Leach
This must be Joseph Pearl Leach, son of James Pearl Leach, b. 05 Sep 1923 in Columbus, OH and d. 31 May 1985 in Torrance, CA after just 8 months as city manager of Rolling Hill. In addition to certain census, I have 3 records:

Probate Court Register of Marriages for Franklin Co, OH, vol 163 (1948-1949), p 580, #60160:
Joseph P. Leach, mayor, age 25 on 5 Sep 1948, m. 31 Jul 1949 in Columbus, OH to Wilda Jean Swain, student, age 22 on 25 Mar 1949; neither previously married; groom b. in Hamilton [sic] Co, OH and living in Sharonville; bride b. and living in Columbus, OH; groom's parents: James P. Leach and Naomi Baumgardner; bride's parents: Robert M. Swain and Kathryn Perdue

Rootsweb's California Death Index:
Joseph Pearl Leach b. 5 Sep 1923 in OH; d 31 May 1985 in Los Angeles Co., CA; mother's maiden name Baumgartner

6 Jun 1985 Los Angeles Times:
The Rolling Hills City Council will discuss selection of a city manager after the death last week of Joseph P. Leach, 61, city manager for eight months. Joseph d. of vascular disease 31 May 1985 in Torrance, CA.

One thing to note is that Naomi "Minnie" Baumgardner was Joseph's stepmother. I haven't yet discovered the name of his father's first wife, who was Joseph's biological mother.
