I have the 1971 edition of the Leiter genealogy book. Andrew born 9-14-1818 has no wife or children listed in the book. Andrew is the son of Andrew m Susan.....This Andrew is also the son of Andrew b. 1770 m Barbara Keiffer. Andrew (1770) is the son of Jacob (1749) m Juliana Fogle. Jacob (1749) is the son of Jacob(1706) and 2nd wife Elizabeth. Andrew (1770) is thought to have started Leiter's Tavern which is where Leitersburg is. He and his brother Peter inherited 362 acres of land there. Andrew had the southern half but did not do well in his financial affairs and had to sell off everything due to litigation by the banks in Hagestown and Greencastle. He died in 1818 practically insolvent. I have more information if anyone is interested.
