Clara Jane Smith born in Indiana in 1872 to John Paul Smith and Mary Elizabeth Walton. She married Marion Leonard app. 1890; she was living in Cass County, Missouri in the 1900 Census.
Clara had 2 daughters Stella Maye Leonard born app. 1892 and Minnie Louellen Leonard born 1903. She had five sons by Marion. Amos Francis Leonard born 1900 - John Leonard - (Steven) Leonard - (Alva Leonard & Elva Leonard)>twins born app. 1908. She remarried to a man name Bennett had a sixth son named Howard Bennett born app. 1915. Clara was blind and supposedly a Cherokee Indian.
The family traveled quite a bit over the southwestern part of Missouri and into the tri-state areas of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. Upon one of the travels Clara consented to two of the children traveling with another family; they picked an area where they were to meet. Upon arriving there, the other family and her two children, were never seen or heard of again. The two children were supposed to have been the twins; but the Missouri archives has Elva listed as Elvie H. Leonard and died from burns received from an accidental scalding. This fits a story that my grandmother Minnie Louellen Leonard told of her father. She had very little respect for him, because she said her baby brother was crawling and spilled the pot of soup over; and Her father then proceeded to sit down and eat the remaining of the soup in the pot.
Clara's mother Mary Elizabeth (Walton) Smith was a widow by 1900 and lived in Dayton (Cass County) Missouri. She had a brother William Elwood Smith and his wife that resided in Dayton.
Her sister Julia A. (Smith) Huff and husband Luther lived in Missouri. Her sister Lucinda married a man name Cauthon and moved eventually to California where she died at. We have yet to find any information on Clara's sister Minnie Smith. Clara Jane died in Joplin (Jasper County) Missouri in 1925 and is buried under the name of Clara Jane Leonard.
The two children that was allowed to ride with the other family must have been Alva (one of the twins) and Stephen Leonard (The youngest Leonard boy). Amos moved to Tulsa where he died. Minnie married a man named George Patton and eventually moved to Tulsa. They had 17 children together. John was listed at home with Clara and his brother Howard Bennett - in the 1920 census from Ottawa County Oklahoma where they were living with George and Minnie (Leonard) Patton. Stella was already 18 years old by 1910 when Elvie was scalded to death.
If anyone has ever heard this story and may know what ever happen to the two children that traveled with the other family I would appreciate greatly in knowing. Thank You!
