    Thanks for the comments everyone. I do not intend for my comments to refer to that the Leinbach family owned my ancestors. My ancestors were of Dr. Beverly Jones&#039; and Isreal Lash&#039;s plantation. I just added my comments on this page as information.

Thanks for the comments. Janet M. Cason
