J Clark says "The pics of Thomas Leader and Bridgett Allen came to be by way of Blaine Bunnage, who descends from Thomas and Bridgett by way of their daughter Jemima, also known as Jennie, and therefore possibly misidentified on some trees as Jane. Jemima was a very beautiful lady." in email Photo Credits 18 Oct 2013.
