  1. John Leeper{ d 1815 Nicholas County Kentucky} thought to be son of James Leeper and Margaret Leeper of Naked Creek Virginia:

    Only Proof, wife named Susannah, some association with Henderson family: no proof likely to be forthcoming for various reasons.Maybe more work could be done on the money owed to John Leaper mentioned in his estate esp monies owed by Hugh and Frances Leaper (thought to be sons of Gawen Leeper, son of James and Margeret}
