Death date is a little confusing. There is a Leonard Jerry McLain who died in Branch County, Michigan on Feb. 22, 1965, but there is a Leonard McLain who died in Branch County, Michigan on April 23, 1947. The second one would fit better with John Shankwiler's date of 1949, but I do not know for sure which one it is.
