Leedy's In History



The number in parenthesis refers to the designation in The Leedy Family History by Gordon M. Connelly (1985).   



Public Officials


Office seekers generally are tricky people, and politicians are a brood of venomous serpents, in the main, and by psychology, their contact with a fair and equitable man marks him as undesirable in holding office, because he will not be a thief and robber to provide rake-offs for his chums.  The Leedy Chronicle, page 1309 (September 1915)
