Subject: [LEEPER-L] LEEPER/LEIPER famlies in Washington Co., PA
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 22:16:33 EST
Dear LEEPER Cousins,
I subscribe to the PAWASH list (Washington Co., PA.). That's where my RAGAN
& LEEPER families were at one time. Today there were a few LEEPER famillies
mentioned. Thought I'd pass them on to this group.

LEIPER is a variant of the LEEPER surname. And there were LEEPERS living in
Washington County for several years. They later moved into Ohio and some
went on to Illinois.
I would love to discuss anything concerning the LEEPER family with others.
