This gets more interesting as it goes... his sister Mrs. Sheldon DeHart is ADDIE MAE PEACH, daughter of AMANDA C. LEACH 1880/1967 wife of WILLIE EDMOND PEACH 1877 / 1929 they married in 1910 in OHIO CO. KY. AMANDA is the daughter of DILLIS DYER LEACH 1851 and MARGARET A. DeHEART 1853.
In 1900 Amanda is single in fathers home, In 1910 She is married to Willie Peach but showing children of 0/0
So either between 1900 and 1910 she married a LEACH and devorced him... or ???? As for Arthur showing Dillis as father, I cannot find another one besides her father. Hope someone can come up with one.

I'll add a little more to this. According to the obit info Arthur had half brothers, Otis and Junior. Junior may have been a nickname. Amanda (Mandy) Leach and Willis Peach had a son named Otis and one of their sons was Willis(possibly a Jr.).

Either the obit is wrong with the mother's name and the 1910 census was incorrect. Or Amanda could have been his mother and possibly married a Leach before marrying Willis Peach or maybe she wasn't married when Arthur and Joy were born and Dillis and Margaret adopted them.

Another question...??? Where was brother Ira in the 1910 census? He would have been about 4yrs old.

I posted the original query under a old name.

In going through some letters I received from Marie Bell DeHart in 1999 I found some interesting information. She is the granddaughter of Willis Peach and Amanda Caroline Leach.

She states that Willis Peach had three children by his first wife, Christia A. Allen. Herman, Maymee, Lenard. She list three children Amanda brought into the marriage.
Joy Leach b11-12-1902, d 4-30-1980.
Arthur Leach b 3-29-1904, d 5-25-1961.
Ira Leach b 10-17-1905, d 4-30-1975.

Joy Leach married Beula Rains Nov 27 1923, their daughter Margarett Roberta Leach just died Dec 12 2006. Beula Rains was the daughter of Jesse Lee Rains and Rosenle Baize.

Dillia D. Leach had two sons not listed on the census:
James Henry Leach born and died 1882
Arthur Leach b 1887 d 1899

I don't know if Amanda C. Leach was married before Willis Peach, I cannot find any other marriage listed for her. She was about 30 years old when they married.
