Ann LEEPER is the daughter of John LEEPER and unknown wife. It is believed that he was married twice, but I have not seen a name for any wife. It is reported that he first settled in Chester Co. PA then York Co. PA and finally Cumberland Co. PA where he died in 1782. His will lists Ann and her siblings:
