I am searching for any information relating to Lazar PHELPS b. 2/15/1842 in Romania (so stated in 1872 US naturalization papers [Lousiana], 1873 passport application [NYC] and 1880 US census [Philadelphia]). I have yet to find any PHELPS in Romania and am considering that the name may have been PHLEPS, or some other spelling. Is this a common name? Has anyone encountered PHLEPS in Wallachia as opposed to those I can find in LDS records from Transylvannia?
