Notes
a. Note:   ish immigrant Malcolm was born 5-1-1830 in Moore County NC. Sandy as he was called was married to Mary McLeod daughter of William and Elizabeth on 12-12-1854 at her parents home about nine miles northeast of Troy by Justice of the Peace William Coggins. It was near here he and Mary built their home on Little River in Montgomery County and reared their Children. His descendants of these children still hold a family reunion on the first Sunday in May of each year at the Little River Community Building. Sandy was a strict moralist. On October 27 1857 he was commissioned by Governor Thomas Bragg as a Captain in the Third District 60 th Regiment 11 th brigade and 4 th Division of the North Carolina Militia. During the Civil War he served as Captain in the Montgomery County Home Guard whose muster ground was an open field on the Leach Farm. In April 1859 he joined the Suggs Creek Primitive Baptist Church and was elected deacon the next year. In July 1872 he was elected clerk of the church and in August was chosen clerk of Abbott's Creek Association. He held and filled all these offices with credit until his death. He was also a Justice of the Peace and served as a Montgomery County Commissioner. Sandy was a carpenter and mill-wright who practiced his trade for more than half a century. Once he and a young apprentice millwright were building a mill. In Sandy's absence the young millwright not having a hacksaw with him sawed a one and one half inch shaft in two with Sandy's hand saw. When Sandy returned and looked at his ruined hand saw the young man said "I guess you will curse me out". "No" he replied "I haven't cursed in forty years and it's too late now." An expert bridge builder his advise was still being sought when he was past eight. When the Norfolk-Southern was building the railroad across Little River between Star and Troy the construction foreman came to Sandy for advise. He examined their plans for the trestle and said "I court not your favors nor fear your frowns but the plans for this trestle as it is now will never hold up the locomotives and train cars." He became the consultant to the engineers on the project and the trestle was built with a lattice construction and pegged with white oak to his exact specifications. As the sun was going down on March 14 1915 Sandy Leach quietly passed away. He was buried in the McLeod family cemetery near Shady Grove Church in the Little River Township of Montgomery County NC.
