Don Leisey

  Dwight Finger, has forwarded me the following updates to our website:

Changed the wife of Jacob Leisey to "Sarah"
Added 2 children to the above, Jacob and Henry
Added husband, Samuel Shuler to daughter Catherine

Added children to Samuel Shuler and Catherine Leisy
Daughter Susan Jane Shuler married Percival Kindt, and they had children, but these are not entered.

Added children to Edwin Leisey

Added Onesinius Lafayette Leisey, who was born in Nebraska and moved to Wyoming, Montana and Sacramento. He changed his name to Joseph around 1920. He died in Placer County, California and is buried in Old Auburn Cemetery.

Added children of Albert Franklin Leisey, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma. There is a Richard Vernon Leisy and a Vernon Leisy. At first it appeared these might be the same person, but they are listed separately on the 1920 census. I have not found wives and children of Albert's kids.

John G. Leisey has 6 children, these are not entered.

There are some more minor details that have been updated, but I did not note them.

  Don, I was thrilled to read the accounts of your father, Sergeant Alvin Lewis Leisey, Sr. My Grandfather, Robert Clocker Oberry SN 1777209, Served as a Corporal in the 310th F.A. Battery "F", Entering Service 28 Sept 1917 to his Discharge 6 Jun 1919.

I was hoping you may have additional photos or information on their Unit.

I never met my grandfather, so reading your story was special to me.

Feel free to contact me if you have any thing to share.

Warmest Regards,
John C O'Berry

Don and Pat Leisey

  Dear Family:
We hope you had a Merry Christmas!
2013 was a memorable year for the California Leiseys in many respects. We enjoyed traveling and participating in many activities with family and friends.
The highlight of this year's travel was our 14 day, seven country tour of Eastern Europe in the spring. After spending four days in Prague, Czech Republic, we traveled by bus through Slovakia to Budapest, Hungary ending in Bucharest, Romania. If you haven't explored this part of the world, we highly recommend it because it is so different than we had imagined, and continues to be in transition.
We returned home to host Don's nephew and niece, Larry and Linda Leisey from Don's hometown of Honey Brook, PA. We enjoyed showing them some of our favorite places in San Francisco, Marin County and the Napa wine country. Later in the summer, we hosted our friends that Don worked with when he was a school principal in Japan with the Department of Defense Dependent Schools from 1964-67. We visited Napa wine country, Carmel and Monterrey and numerous points of interest in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In September, we flew to Hawaii for the University of Southern California vs. University of Hawaii football game in Honolulu. We stayed in Waikiki for four days enjoying the USC pre-game activities and parties. After the game we flew to Maui where we rented a condo on the beach with friends and celebrated Pat's 75th Birthday with an outstanding dinner at Mama's Seafood Restaurant. If you ever go to Maui, make sure you have a lunch or dinner at Mama's Seafood Restaurant which is on the beach and exemplifies eveyrthing you have imagined about Hawaii. We have decided that Hawaii will be an annual trip for us because it is pure relaxation and outstanding beauty.
Don attended several USC football games in the fall. Even though there were three coaching changes, he is convinced that USC will be successful in the future under its new coach, Steve Sarkisian.
Each year Don takes a grandchild to a game at the Los Angeles Coliseum. This year he took Macallan (9 years old), his mother, Kristen and grandmother, Pat to the Utah State game. On Friday, we enjoyed touring the campus and attending the Pep Rally. On Saturday, prior to the game, we had a wonderful picnic on the USC Campus where we were entertained by the USC Marching Band and Cheerleaders.
In November, we drove to Los Angeles to attend the USC vs. UCLA football game, but the outcome was not to our liking. The following morning we drove to Las Vegas to visit Kendra and Jaelyn. Jaelyn will be 5 years old in Februrary and is very precocious, bright, talented and active. It is always fun being with Kendra and Jaelyn.
Kristen's and Steve's boys (Nicklaus-13, Zackary -10, and Macallan-9) are involved in school and sports (soccer, basketball, baseball, and mountain biking). Kristen's tutorial business continues to thrive and Steve continues to grow his products business.
Pat is still very active with her charity work as a board member with Hospice and Marin Charitable and as President of the North Bay TWA Clipped Wings. Don continues to serve as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Foundation Board of West Chester University of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Board of Councilors for the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California. During his trips to Pennsylvania, he enjoys visiting relatives, getting together with his high school friends, "The Boys from the Brook," and having lunch with his college friends.
We think of you often and hopefully we will see many of you in 2014. We are planning to be on the East Coast in late April for Don's 55th Reunion from West Chester. We would enjoy seeing you if you are ever in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Best wishes for a Healthy, Prosperous and Happy New Year!

  I am trying to trace my family tree and am stumped at Hans Jerick Lyssey from Germany. He arrived in Philadelphia, PA in 1753 on the ship Peggy. His last name has many variations in spelling. He was born around 1720. He had 2 children: Catherine and Joseph who are reported to have arrive at Phila, PA in 1770. The listed mother's name doesn't correspond childrens ages. I would appreciate any help you can give. I will visit my uncle, Arthur Leisy, next month and would like to have some info for him...he is 97. His lineage seems to be: Albert Leisy and Minnie Dollar; John Henry Leisy and Sabrianna Annora Brown; Henry Leisy and Catherine Miller; Joseph Leisy and Sophia Schneider; Hans Jerick Lyssey (John Gorg Leisig?) and Susanna Biel. Please help if you can. I would love to know more about the Leisy Clan. Thank you. Kay Walker
