    1. [BAXTER]LECKRONE - BAXTER Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as that of T. W. LECKRONE of Delaware, OH. The photograph was taken at the T. A. Beach Studio in Delaware, OH and likely related to Ohio Wesleyan as others belonging to Professors at that school were recovered as well from this same source. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1860's or 1870's with the young man likely in his 20's at the time. Thanks to researchers I have the following information regarding this man and his family: Thomas West LECKRONE was b. 1851 in Ohio to parents John & Eliza LECKRONE. The family was living in Jefferson OH by 1860 with four children and remained there in 1870 as well. Thomas married Florence in Walnut, OH and by 1900 he was a doctor. The couple had a daughter Helen LECKRONE b. 1896. Thomas died 12 Feb 1908. His daughter Helen married Dr. Leland BAXTER on 3 Nov 1913. By 1930 Helen and her husband were living in Newark, OH with a son, E. Leland BAXTER (b. 1920 in OH). Helen died 30 Mar 1961 in Newark, OH and is buried in the Cedar Hills Cemetery in Newark along with her parents. Helen's husband and her son both died in April 1936 within weeks of each other and they too are buried in the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Newark. I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
