In "History and Genealogy of the Leiter Families" Andrew James Leiter is mentioned but not Susan Fowler. It claims the Andrew was born 14 Sep 1818 in Washington Co., Md. He is shown as the son of Andrew who "probably" married Susan. (should verify this !!!). Children of this Andrew are Addrew, Eleanor (b1820), Mary (b 1822), David (b1825), and Henry(b1828).
Andrew (who married Susan) is listed as one of 7 children of Andrew who was b1770-d1818, both in Leitersburg. He married Barbara Keiffer, b in Pa. She was the daughter of Martin and Elizabeth Kieffer. Andrew was a Lutheran and a blacksmith. He laid out the town of Leitersburg in 1815 and sold lots. This venture failed.
His father is listed as Jacob Leiter (1749-1814). He was b in Lancaster Co, Pa. He Married Juliana Fogle (b1752) Dau of Frederick Fogle. Jacob had 10 children of which Andrew was the second (1st son).
Jacobs father is listed as Jacob. His will was proved 22feb1764. His wife was named Elizabeth, his second wife. She died before 1776.
This is just a summary of the information in the book. The problem is that Andrew James father probably needs to be verified before it becomes a sure thing. Any way I hope this helps in giving you leads to your family history. Good luck: Jerry.
