[Notes by David E. Kermott from May 5, 1997 to May x, 1997. I have consulted with my father, Rev., William J. Kermott to obtain true dates and certain facts that I did not already know. The Leigh family already has quite a good documented lineage recorded so I will focus on the Kermott branch. The Pease and Allen side of my family will be documented elsewhere.]
