I have come across the George Leaf line in my Mentzer/Schoner research. A George Leaf married a Mary (Anna Maria)Schoner in the 1770s. They had one son, George. The first George Leaf was executed by order of a court martial in Philadelphia around 1778.

Mary Schoner Leaf then married Englebert Mintzer of Northern Liberties in 1781. Her son, George Leaf was raised by him. In the late 1780s the family moved to Montgomery County, Pottstown.

I believe the son George died in 1823 in Pottstown. Either he or his son, also a George, was an Episcopal minister.

I found this information at the Montgomery Cty Historical Society in their bulletin of 1962, Vol 13.
