There's a woman in Lakeville who has documented all the gravestones and their inscriptions in the town of Lakeville. I thought that Pa Leonard, considering all his work as Lakeville Cemetery Commissioner, would appreciate this labor of love. I helped him one summer organize his files, and Mom did a lot of work with him, too.

Here's an article and a short slide show where the author talks about her work. In them she talks about the gravestone of a child of Elkanah Leonard, a long-departed cousin and grandson of original settler James Leonard. Both were involved in the Taunton ironworks.

If you click on the image of the book it will take you to her website.
