I found this headstone in the Mt Joy Cemetery atop a hill in Lancaster County. The headstone isn’t nearly as interesting as the Joshua Leader’s story!
Joshua was the youngest step-brother of my 4th great-grandfather, Samuel Leader. He was a Pharmacist in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, when he was killed trying to stop a run away horse in town. Joshua was only 43 years old at the time and trying to do a good deed. Buried with him are his wife and daughter.
I don’t think this is the original headstone.
