Cyrus B. Leach was born December 15, 1827, in Vermont. In 1850, he was living in Lisbon, a farm laborer for B. K. Eastman. For some time before, during and until at least 1870, he lived in Bradford. He was a miller by trade. In 1880, he was living in Franconia, New Hampshire. He died December 12, 1881, and is buried in Bath New Hampshire. His widow, Laura (Jackson Jenks) Leach, applied for a widow's pension on January 17, 1882. Cyrus died of complications from his war-contracted illnesses (malaria, dengue fever, amoebic dysentery). He also lost hearing in one ear due to an insect sting while on duty in Thibideaux, Louisiana.
Cyrus' son Frederick, his mother and two sisters, moved to LaCrosse, Wisconsion, in 1886.
