Several city directories have been found which show his widow, Hannah M. White.

Jennie W., 8
Freddie L., 7
Beoni? M., female, 5

Is this "Our" Leonard?

To the best of my knowledge, the five children listed below are all her biological children.  They also seemed to have had a father named Leonard White.  However, I'm not yet sure this particular Leonard White was previously the huband of Hannah M. Loehr.

NOTE: In 1910 & 1915, a Merrill White, said to have been a girl, born about 1908, lived in the household of Nellie White (who was clearly the mother of Homer E. Wood's wife, Jenjnie M. White). Who was this? Was this actually Merrill Wood, who clearly lived with his father, Homer E. Wood, and Homer's wife, Jennie, later on. This "daughter," which in 1910 was supposed to have been listed as a daughter or granddaughter of the head of household, was listed after son, Lawrence, 24. Whas Lawrence the father of a girl named Merrill?  However, Jennie's husband, Homer Wood, seems to have had a son born about the same time in New York named Merrill Wood. There is a lot of confusion about him.

In the NY State Birth Index, there was a child, sex not named, Merrill F. White, who was born 7 Jul 1907 in Utica, NY. The parents are not named, either.
