M, #299, b. 18 January 1898
Father*Arthur Edward Smith b. 2 Sep 1872, d. bt 1903 - 1909
Mother*Elizabeth Mary Carmoody b. 24 May 1876, d. 1 Oct 1920
Research Note:
I believe he is the illegitimate son of Edith Beatrice Smith, (sister of Arthur Edward Smith). Leonard does not show up on the 1901 census in the household of his parents, nor in the 1911 census household of Fred Hale with his mother, as does his alleged full brother Arthur. He does show up on the 1911 census with Edith his "Aunt". The delayed birth registration states his father's occupation as a butcher. In all documents viewed to date, Arthur Edward Smith Sr. was either listed as a teamster or driver. Leonard was never mentioned by his alleged half siblings, as were Art and Joan. I have included him on the off chance that he is a sibling.
