Leo was my father's fourth cousin and we corresponded a little bit many years ago. Here is a summary of Leo's ancestry...
Here is an article from the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record that I authored with detailed biographical information on the earliest Streeter ancestors that Leo and I have in common...
I encourage Leo's immediate and extended family members to contact me to exchange more information as I prepare to publish a classic hardbound genealogy on all descendants of Richard-B and Elizabeth (------) Streeter of Dunnings Farm, East Grinstead, Sussex, England.

I am a caregiver for Home Instead Senior Care and had the privilege to meet Leo and spend some time with him. What a wonderful and interesting man he was! He always beat me in a rousing game of Scrabble. It was always a pleasure entering his room and seeing his smile. I will miss spending time with him. He always had funny stories and loved to laugh. God bless you, Leo, and comfort all who love you. May you rest in peace with your beloved Gloria.
