I am seeking information on Joseph Leasure (born May 1852 in Ohio), wife Clemma Ellen Thompson (10 May 1859 in Cadiz, Harrison County, Ohio/20 April 1951 in Wheeling Township, Belmont County, Ohio), and family.

Joseph was a son of John or Thomas Laizure and Martha A. White who were married 01 September 1847 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio and Clemma was a daughter of James Thompson (21 January 1826 in Newton, Stewart, Wigtownshire, Scotland/Chicago, Cook County, Illinois) and Louisa Jane Bailey (01 August 1831 in St. Clairsville, Belmont County, Ohio/14 May 1910 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois).

The descendants of these particular Laisures [also spelled Leasure and Laizure, etc.], my 2nd great-grandfather, Elmer Ellsworth Laisure (18 June 1881 in Fairpoint, Wheeling Township, Belmont County, Ohio/18 December 1939 Shepherdstown, Wheeling Township, Belmont County, Ohio), among them, seem to have concentrated around Fairpoint, Ohio and Wheeling Township in Belmont County.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at Thanks in advance.
