Taken from the book Genealogical and Family History of Eastern Ohio by Ewing Summers:

    A popular public official and a man of substance and prominence in Columbiana county, Ohio, Sheriff Charles Pratt Leonard was born in Wellsville, Ohio in 1855, and is now an esteemed citizen of Lisbon.  The parents of Sheriff Leonard were Thomas Pratt and Annie (Stockman) Leonard, and his ancestry on both sides reaches to Revolutionary heroes.  Great-grandfather Samuel Leonard owned the farm on which the battle of Brandywine was fought, and he took part as a patriot soldier.  His son Thomas, the grandfather of our subject, was born at Phoenixville, Chester County, Pennsylvania, and there also occurred the birth of Thomas Pratt Leonard.  The latter came to Salem, Ohio, in 1829, and opened the first hotel at the forks of the Georgetown road, and in 1842 opened a hotel at Wellsville.  Our subject's grandmother belonged to an old Quaker family of Chester County named Massie, and the family all became members of that society.  Thomas P. Leonard died on February 10, 1880, in Wellsville, at the age of seventy years.
    The mother of Sheriff Leonard was a daughter of Jacob Stockman, who came of a Pennsylvania German family and who settled in Elk Run Township, Columbiana County, Ohio, about 1836.  A brother of Mrs. Leonard, Frank Stockman, is the agent for the Pennsylvania Railroad at Ravenna.
    Until 1876 Charles Pratt Leonard resided in Wellsville, but the years intervening between that date and 1897 were spent in California, Oregon and Colorado.  For thirty-two years Mr. Leonard has been a contractor and builder.  For five years he was connected with the Fuller Construction Company of Chicago, Illinois; for four years was with the Hammer Construction Company of Omaha; and was engaged individually in the same business in Spokane, Washington.
    Mr. Leonard's ability was recognized upon his return to Wellsville by and appointment as inspector of public works, and this office claimed his close and careful attention until, eighteen months after acceptance, he was honored by his Democratic friends by an election to the office of sheriff of Columbiana county, in 1901.  The vote was a flattering one and a testimonial to his personal popularity, his majority over his opponent being 4258 votes.
    The marriage of Sheriff Leonard was to Miss Sarah McIntosh, who is a daughter of Hugh McIntosh, of Jefferson County, Ohio.  The family name on the maternal side was Caldwell, and both families came of Scotch ancestry.  Mr. Leonard is connected with fraternal organization in Wellsville.  His reputation as a man of strict adherence to duty is well deserved and Columbiana County is fortunate in her selection to so important an office as sheriff.
