Leech (Leach) Family of Jamaica Miscellaneous Papers
Description: This is an extremely small collection consisting only of sixteen documents, these being dated from 1812 to 1854 and consisting of bills, receipts and letters. More specifically, the documents seem to pertain to Mr. Obadiah Leach. Almost half, however, reflect on others bearing such last names as Kissam and Duryea. There was probably intermarriage with these families, and this is how these documents happen to be located with the Leach family papers. A document, which is probably a stray item, is a letter addressed to "John A. King of Jamaica from Congressman James Monroe. It concerns political matters and is dated Oct 8, 1840.
