Hi, I hope I can help you with this...
I was looking and found there is an Elija Albert Leathe born in Woburn, MA 13 AUG 1807 to his parents, Elija J and Margaret. I cannot find his death. I am looking at an obituary, but not sure if it's his father or another relative (there are 3 Elija Leathe's born in Woburn in early years, including the one in 1807), for Elijah Leathe dated 29 DEC 1835 Concord, MA. He was a farmer, a Revolutionary War soldier at "The Battle of Bunker Hill" who fell dead in his home at age 80 in 1835. The obit also states that over 50 years prior, he was one of the first to carry shoes in a saddle bag to Faneuil Market when there was no shoe stores and peddle them from a bench. I don't know if you already had this info., or if it pertains to the family you're researching, but wanted to add it just in case.
I'd know what Elija is who on what I'm viewing if I had more details. I hope this does help though, and I'll keep looking!
