On This Day: Missionaries return to Lancaster

The Reverend Charles Leaman, a missionary of the Presbyterian Church, has returned home from China On This Day in 1882 after eight years. While in China, he met a fellow missionary from New Jersey, married her and they have two children. Leaman is the son of Henry Leaman, of Leaman Place. He is also brother to William Leaman, esq., of Lancaster City
