My family came from Welchtown/Altnapaste, Co. Donegal. I believe there were quite a few Leeper families in the area and I would be interested in making connections between them if possible. My own ancestry is as follows: William Leeper b.abt 1720 | Robert Leeper 1750-1820 | Francis Leeper b. 1790 | Robert Leeper 1834-1874 m. Matilda Holmes | William John Leeper 1867-1956 m. Elizabeth Witter (Brothers: Francis m. Anna Wilson; Sam m. E. Thompson. Sisters: Rebecca m. Sam Gormley; Elizabeth m. John Thompson) | Richard Kevin Leeper 1894-1987 m. Elizabet Mary Fenton 1892-1975 | Richard John _Desmond_ Leeper 1917-2003 m. Josephine Burrows (brother : T. W. Brian Leeper) | Finian James Leeper + 3 brother + 3 sisters Please contact me if you have any connection. Finian Leeper (

Definately related to you.....all be it, at a distance & through marriage! Samuel Gormley who married your Rebecca J. Leeper is related to my family although all their children seem to have disappeared!

Zero posts against his name means he is long gone from GR

You are adding to a lot of threads, without checking to see if there is any recent activity on them............
