Reminiscences of the Earlier Days in Kosciusko County

By James H. Carpenter

            

When I first saw Dr. Leedy in the spring of 1849, I thought I had never seen a man of finer physique; but more than twenty-five years' hard work in his chosen profession broke him down and he fell a victim to hard work and exposure. I do not think that there has been the same amount of mortality amongst any other class of men. All of those who were in practice here in 1846, with the exception of Dr. Willard, are dead. They were hard-working men, who did their full part in laying the foundation of the prosperity we are now enjoying, and their memory should be revered.

 

John Keith Leedy died of pneumonia
