The Story of Iowa, The Progress of an American State; Vol. III: Family and Personal History, Page 61:
"Charles E. Leonard was the first publisher and editor of the "Herald" with his offices in the Masonic Hall on First Street. He later found himself something of a celebrity, although not directly through his publishing work. His wife, Cythia Van Names Leonard, who was well known in club circles and who helped to open the first Soldiers' Home in Iowa, took her daughter, Nellie, to New York after the family moved to Chicago. It was this daughter who was destined to become the famous Lillian Russell."
