life. His father was Matthew LEEPER located across the county line
in Jefferson at Muddy Creek. I am looking for Matthew Leeper's wife
and the names of their parents. Do you have a copy of the 1870 and

There is a chance that Matthew LEEPER's wife was a Native

Matthew's wife and both their parents are the only unknown
Any leads will be greatly appreciated.
