Biography of Dr. John W. S. Leslie

DR. JOHN W. S. LESLIE.

In July, 1862, he joined his father’s company as a private, with which he served until after the fall of Little Rock, when he was made major of a battalion in McRea’s brigade, in which capacity he served until the war closed, operating principally north of the Arkansas River and participating in many skirmishes.

Biography of Hon. Samuel Leslie

HON. SAMUEL LESLIE. Among the representative and venerable citizens of Searcy County, Arkansas, and one who is a splendid type of the enterprise, industry and self-reliance of the early Arkansas pioneer, it is a pleasure to introduce to the readers of this volume the subject of this sketch. Considerably more than half a century ago he braved the dangers, trials and privations of pioneer life in order to establish a home and competency for his growing family, and where now are waving fields of grain then stood the mighty monarch of the forest. He was born in Barren County, Kentucky, October 25, 1809. Samuel Leslie is a son of John and Jane (McElwee) Leslie, the latter having been born in South Carolina. It is thought that Mr. Leslie was born while his parents were en route from Pennsylvania to the South, and he and his wife were married in York District, S. C., from which place they removed in 1807 to Kentucky, and when their son Samuel was about two years of age to Tennessee. Here the mother died when he was about eight years of age, but the father survived until 1840, his death occurring in Carroll County. Mr. Leslie was a farmer and mechanic, having served three years at wagon making and seven years as a weaver, and through unflagging efforts lie became possessed of a competency....

Leslie, Glenn E. – Obituary

Glenn E. Leslie died last Friday, September 19, 1919, at Joseph, after an illness of only a few days. He had not been in rugged health for some years, and at the last, a weakness of the heart proved fatal. At the first of the week Mr. Leslie went fishing for yanks at the head of the lake.

His mother, Mrs. Anna Leslie, and his sisters, Mrs. Agnes Claycomb of La Grande and Mrs. Claire Mullen of Joseph, and his brother, J. Ross Leslie now living at La Grande, were with him when his spirit departed. Glenn Ellsworth Leslie was born at Corn, Iowa, Aug. 3, 1884.

Biography of Rev. David Leslie

REV. DAVID LESLIE. – David Leslie was a contribution of the spirit and the life of the new England of half a century ago to the development and civilization of the Pacific coast. Though so much of his life was spent in the newer and ruder conditions attendant on a pioneer work in this distant west, he never forgot the carefulness and precision induced by his early training, nor widely departed from the habits and modes of thought characteristic of his Yankee origin. He was a native of New Hampshire, where he was born in 1797, and was reared among the White Mountains, partaking so much of the spirit of his native hills that he ever seemed as indurated and solid as their own granite bases. In 1822, when he was twenty-five years of age, he was admitted as a preacher in the New England conference, in which he continued until 1836, when he was appointed a missionary to Oregon. He was the first missionary to bring a wife and family to this coast; and to him and his wife belong the distinction of having set up the first christian home west of the Rocky Mountains. his wife was of a family eminent in New England life, being of the Pierce family, and sister of B.K. Pierce, D.D., long one of the most eminent preachers and authors of Massachusetts....
