I don't have positive proof of the first name of Leah's third husband, but I think it is Ephraim Leeth, Sr. The only two Leeths in the area where Leah lived who were her age were George Leeth d. 1768 (his will names wife Miriam) and his brother Ephraim d. 1784/5.

Ephraim appears on Shenandoah Co., VA, tax rolls 1782-1784. Then Leah "suddenly" shows up on the 1785 tax roll. Is that because she is recently widowed? It's only a theory, but it seems the best fit for the pieces of the puzzle. Maybe more research will prove or disprove the theory.
