Leah was the daughter who stayed at home (91c, 01c), and who looked after Charles after Sarah died in 1897 and nursed him through his final illness.  John Llewelyn has two letters from the doctor, Justin M. C. McCarthy, to Leah.  On Jan 11th, 1912 (the day after Charles's funeral) he wrote, "It will always be a pleasant recollection to me that he had so devoted and skilful a daughter who so successfully smoothed the rough & trying road which he had to travel the last few years." On May 15th, 1912 he wrote, "I shall always remember with thankfulness the nurse who was so devoted to her father & who did so much to soothe the last weary way which he had to pass through."

John Llewelyn writes (December 2004):  "Amongst the papers that have recently come into my possession is a postcard addressed to Auntie Leah and her husband Fred at Cappleside (which is at Rathmell), sent just before Christmas during the early part of WW1.  There is a photograph of Charley Jeggo (Dan's eldest son) in army uniform on the other side.  Cappleside House remains in the ownership of the same family today, and had extensive gardens which employed six gardeners."

Having no children of their own, Leah and Fred Hales adopted Stanley Jack Jeggo (b 1917), a great-nephew of Leah (and a grandson of Dan) who became known as Jack Hales.  John Llewelyn continues (December 2004):  "I now have photographic evidence of Jack Hales's attendance at St. John's Infants School, Higher Broughton, Salford."

Amongst correspondence to Jack Hales's wife Mildred (deceased) is a letter from Leah dated 10 August 1942 stating that "Cousin Fan died on the 28th July".  This can only refer to Fanny Rose, daughter of Leah's Aunt Maria, and who is referred to in the will of Fanny Jeggo, and who was a (posthumous) beneficiary of Golden Jeggo's will.  There is also a letter dated 26th August 1941 from Fanny Rose who was living at 57 Lansdowne Road, Bournemouth.
