The History of the Connors Family

From Colonel John Leader to General Patrick Cleburne

In his letter to William Leader, Colonel John Leader mentions that General Patrick Cleburne, Confederate States of America, was his great uncle. Recently, a relative who is also interested in the Leaders but who wishes to remain anonymous has provided information showing how Colonel Leader and General Cleburne are related.

Their common ancestors are General Cleburne's great grandparents and Colonel Leader's great great great grandparents. That makes them second cousins, twice removed. But, General Cleburne was almost 50 years older than Colonel Leader so it would not be unusual for Colonel Leader to refer to General Cleburne as a "great uncle." A new web site devoted to the Radleys of Cork provides additional information.

This page is dedicated to my father who would have loved to have seen it.
