Bert H Leisure & Family

Yesterday I posted a newspaper article from September 1917 reporting on the first Leisure Family Reunion. The article mentions a few of the people involved so I decided to see what information I had/have on those folks in my genealogy file.
The first person is Bert H. Leisure of Windfall, [Tipton County]. He was elected to chair the first meeting and as vice-president for the coming year.
Bert was the son of Nathan J. and Sarah Jane (Moore) Leisure and I found him in my file, but not too much more, at least that was supported. So I went to work. Though there is still plenty to be done, here is the family of Bert H and Carrie (McCaskey) Leisure as I have them so far.
