Below is my grandfather Allen Clayton Leonard and my grandmother Margaret E. (Reniger) Leonard.  They were married September 13, 1897 in Hillsdale, MI.    This photo was taken about 1920.  He was a Conductor for the Tacoma BeltLine Railway which was the Tacoma trolly and cable car line until busses took over in 1938.  Before and after that he was an exceptional barber.  From 1923 to 1925 he tried chicken farming, but found out the hard way that it was for the birds.  My grandmother dedicated her life to raising their children.
