was born in 1912 in Crawford County, Indiana, youngest child and only son of George Quimby and Sarah Ella (Pierson) Shaw. He married Dorothy L Moore about 1936 and was the father of George Ray, Betty Frances and Bonnie Fern. In 1940 Leonard was working as a farm hand, probably for Howard Davis of Adams, Indiana.
Leonard was drafted in April 1944 and first assigned to C Company, 116th Infantry 28 Oct 1944 and killed in action on 5 Dec 1944. I'm at a loss to understand why he was drafted as farmers and farm labor was exempted. I suppose his employment must have changed but he is noted at being farm labor. Leonard and Dorothy had 6 grandchildren and at least 6 great-grandchildren. Dorothy never remarried and died in 1990, They now rest side by side in Mechanicsburg Cemetery in Mechanicsburg, Indiana.
