    There aren’t that many Leatherwood families in Coquille, Oregon (where his father is from), and his father appears to have an older brother also named John E. Leatherwood.

    The man’s wife’s name was Sara.

    A mutt, definitely. If so, the non-European admixture has to be on his father’s side.
