I just noticed this message and wondered if my Joshua Leach from Calvert County, Maryland, who married Priscilla Wilkinson and moved to Butler County, Ohio is the same Joshua Leach (son of Ambrose Leach) that you are speaking of in your messages? I think it is, but I don't have any of my paperwork with me right now. I don't know all of Joshua Leach's children, but I have visited the cemetery where he and his wife are supposed to be buried. I couldn't find any stones there for them. If we are talking about the same Joshua Leach, I would like to know so that I can fill in any gaps that I can. Thanks in advance.

be perhsp a clue.
My ancestor was either abandoned or orpahned, and he insisted his mother was
from IRELAND. Could his mother's name be Ireland, and not her country of
Now you have an Alicia IRELAND, I think this is not a coincidence, your
Alicia is probably related to Margaret Ireland, who married I believe is was
Remember, this is not my research, I am recalling another researcher who
contacted me, and I am very sure I have those notes here, and this may help
