Since I first posted this message last fall, I have found out quite a lot of information regarding the Lepley
Family. Joseph was killed when a locomotive struck his horse and buggy at the Shawtown crossing between Burr Oak
and Bronson. I am looking to find out more about Joseph's
wife, the former Alice Patchin who married a James Chapman
after Joseph's death. I have been spending quite a bit of
time at the Burr Oak, Colon, and Sturgis libraries myself.
I have yet to find a burial record for Joseph or Alice.
Those two are the only family members that have me "stumped" at this time. I appreciate your help.
