Editor's Note:  Who knew Falconer was the place to pick up girls? Bertha Cady lived in Jamestown Ward 5 in 1900.  She was 17 years old and lived with her widowed father and grandmother so she was 16 when she dated Leon.  They don't marry though.  I find Leon married a younger woman named Hattie and they had at least one daughter.
