I am a bit late in responding, but have a little info on Lizzie and John C Leiper of Rutherford co tn. He was a lawyer, and served two years as mayor. He built a home for Lizzie that still stands, on Main Street. He was son of James Lieper and Sarah Taylor.
I am interested in Lizzie... she was the ward of my ggg grandfather, Lewis Garner. The identity of Lewis' first wife and my ggg grandmother is a mystery, and I wonder if perhaps Lizzie's wardship contains the answer. There is no other family connection between the Ruckers and the Garners that would explain why he became Lizzie's guardian.
LIzzie's aunt was Katherine Rucker, who I can find absolutely nothing about, so I wonder if she was possibly Lewis Garner's wife and took her probably orphaned niece Lizzie under her wing.
btw, Lizzie married at age 14 and had TEN children, not just 5. If you would like to know more, please email me directly or post here. thanks ever so.
