I'm a Belgian with a different spelling of "sleep" or "sleepers", of coarse when ancestors were migrating, they spoke their own language (dutch) so my name is pronounced "sleepers". We do have some ancestors that moved to the states.These would have to be desendents of Jean (John) Sliepers born in Belgium in 1771,which had a son Sliepers Jean-Baptiste, born 28 August 1815, some of his family left by boat for the states. If this would fit in, my dad has more records,
it his work for more then 50 years. We know
that during the war 2 American soldiers were
looking for our family in the town of
Ottenburg Brabant Belgium. Of coarse they
missed each other.
Greetings. Marie Claire Sliepers
