  • One or two genealogies have Leonard's middle name as Larkin.  Most have only initial L or no middle initial or name.  The initial L appears in the census.  I was finally able to confirm the middle name when in Janaury 2011 I found Leonard's World War I Draft Registration.  This has his full name as Leonard Larkin Broscoe.I

    The Fain Genealogy provides some further information about Leonard and his family.

    --  Fain Family Genealogy,

    The child Aurille (Aurilla?) does not appear with the others in the 1910 census.  Assuming this Fain report of this child is accurate, it appears she is a twin of Leonard D.  It seemed likely from this that she died before the 1910 census.  But Aurilla appears in the 1920 census as Aurilla, while her brother Leonard is missing from that census.

    I noticed only upon later review that the middle initial of Lenard in 1910 does not clearly match other D's on the page, but being more blocky like an A.  But is blurred by overwriting.  It is not clearly like other Ds on the page either.  Further, I had missed earlier that Lenard (D/A?) in 1901 is reported as a Daughter, not a Son and as Female.  Could this child be a daughter named Lenard (Leonard?) Aurilla?  It appears the child in 1910 is a daughter named Lenard A.

    We find Minnie's widowed mother living with her and the family.  In addition, there are two hired men working on the farm who are reported as part of this household.

    In 1918 Leonard registered for the WWI Draft.  This registration record gives us his full name and reports he and Minnie lived in Marlow.
