| Looking for further information on family of PATRICK HENRY McLEOD born AUG-1814 in Derry Co, Ireland and who emigrated to Washington DC in 1834. He graduated from Columbia Academy in Washington DC and was the son of JAMES McLEOD and MARY HIGGINS. His older brother MATTHEW McLEOD conducted a classical high school in Washington DC and his cousin JOHN McLEOD was principal of Columbia Academy. Patrick married 27-MAY-1839 in Montgomery Co, Maryland to Margaret Chiswell Jones. Patrick left wife and children to prospect for gold in California in 1848. After gold rush he retuned to Maryland and moved family to Monroe county, Missouri where they raised 7 children to adulthood. Patrick established two schools, was Justice of Peace for 30 years and was elected to state legislature in 1875. I am very interested in tracking down Patrick's diary of his 1848-49 trip to California, part of the diary was published in 1930 in the Paris Mercury newspaper, the publicity resulted in a book company purchasing the dairy.
