Hi there,

Wonder if anyone can help. I live in the UK and I'm trying to find out about my relatives. My Grandfather, James Leach, lived in Askov up until the mid-eighties when sadly, he passed away. I be really thrilled if anyone knew of any of the remaining Leach family in or around Askov.

Many thanks!!

Hi there: I knew Jim Leach, Sr. and Jr. Jackie Leach, daughter, was my friend and they moved into the house in Askov that my great-grandfather built. Jim was married to Betty and their kids were Jim, Bob, Vicki, Jackie, and Brian (I think). They should all be 50 and older by now (2011). Jim Jr. has apparently passed away which was why I was googling his name and found this post.

Jim worked for the federal prison (FCI) in Sandstone, MN for a long time. It is minimum security, so sometimes the inmates came over on Sunday and played volleyball with us gals which I'm sure they don't let you do anymore and might not have been the smartest thing in the world.

Contact me if you'd like more info and I can try to help you.

Hi Kristi, I was also wondering the status of Jim Leach, I grow up and was pretty close to Peggy Leach's son. I knew Jackie and was up in Alaska for a while when she was up there. What is the status of Jim? Please respond to [email protected], thanks.

I am trying to find anyone that is related to Kenneth Andrew Jensen. His wife's name was Irene Iva. I believe they had one son also named Kenneth Andrew Jensen. I believe the father (Senior) died in Askov in 1988. Irene Iva had been married previously to Charles Edward Williams and had 6 children. These children may not have lived with their mother at the time. I would appreciate any info anyone can give me. My email is: [email protected]
Thanks.
