    Biography


    • BIOGRAPHY by Albert Cadwallader Worrell: Lewis Worrell's aunt, Mary Maris Worrall, married a man named Joseph B. Leedom, who was associated with Lewis' grandfather in the milling business. It seems probable that the "J" in J. Leedom's name stood for Joseph. The 1860 Census shows a J.L. Worrell, aged 20, living with his father Lewis in Tredyffrin Township, and gives his profession as "miller".

      The 1870 Census shows J. Leedom and his wife and daughters in Tredyffrin and again gives his profession as "miller". Since by 1870 his father had moved to Philadelphia, it seems probable that Leedom had taken over his father's mill. In 1882, Leedom was living at 1424 Bouvier Street in Philadelphia.

      J. Leedom Worrell died in Philadelphia on December 26, 1916. He was a Quaker all his life and his obituary appeared in the Friends Intelligencer on December 30, 1916.
