      THIS SHOULD BE RESEARCHED FURTHER One other LeRoy Carpenter in the state was only 32. Our LeRoy F. Carpenter would be at least 41 or 42 by this time. The census taker could have written his age wrong. It might be the other LeRoy Carpenter.

      A son, James, was reported from another source, but we do not know who the mother of James is.

      LeRoy F. lived in Chrisman, IL for years. He was in a rest home in Marshall, IL at the time of his death. He has three step-daughters he reared, Myra, Thelma and Gertie Bryant, besides his own two sons and two daughters. Gertie Bryant Saults, his step-daughter, confirmed that Minnie Flowers was his first wife. She said they had a small infant that died. (This should be verified, as we found a daughter on the census and have a picture of a girl who evidently grew up.) There were no children by second wife, and his third wife was Rhoda and she had a daughter Sarah, she thought that was the daughter's name. She said Rhoda and Sarah were both dead now (1980). At one time the name Maude was given so her name could have been Sarah Maude, or Maude Sarah. Nellie Mae Blakeney (Bryant) was LeRoy Fremont Carpenter's fourth wife.
