John Leake was born at High Bridge Row, Stafford-
shire, England, on April 16, 1859. When 10 years of age
he went to work in the coal mines. When he was 12
years of age, his parents came to America, landing in
New York on the 4th of July, 1871. The family settled at
Vale Summit, Allegany county, then Pompey Smash, where
Mr. Leake commenced to mine coal for the Consolidation
Coal Company, for which company he is still working,
having been employed by them for 27 years. Mr. Leake
has been engaged in keeping a drug store at Barton. He
has a family of seven sons and two daughters. He was
a member of the House of Delegates in the session of
1896, and was a member of the committee on organiza-
tion, on printing, on public hygiene and on engrossed
bills, and was chairman of the committee on railroads
and canals. He was renominated for the House of Dele-
gates, receiving the vote of 17 of the 25 districts in the
County Convention and the unprecedented number of 253
votes in his home district out of a total of 314, and a
majority in the county of over 1,300.

Matthew Rowe was born in England about 30 years
ago. He is a practical miner and follows his occupation
in the mines of the Consolidation Coal Company. He is
an intelligent, upright citizen, enjoying the esteem and
confidence of the community in which he lives.
