MALINDA MURRAYb. abt. 1820 TN ( said to be dau. of UNKNOWN MURRAY and BARBARA JULIAN MURRAY, who are my GGG Grandparents ):
MALINDA MURRAY b. 1820 TNmd. ( 1 ) Husband named GUIAN/ GREEN LEEPER on 28 April, 1839 in GREENE CO. MO.GUIAN LEEPER was born 1815 TN.They had 4 children and I don't know the history of GUIAN / GREEN LEEPER other than some Court Records on him GREENE CO. MO. Children listed for GUIAN/ GREEN LEEPER and wife MALINDA MURRAY are :
1.JAMES M. LEEPER b. 1843 MO. 2.JOHN W. LEEPER b. 1846 MO. 3.JEROME GREEN LEEPER b. 1848 MO.( G. J. or J. G. ) 4.MALINDA ANN LEEPER b. 03 Sept. 1850 MO.d. 24 June 1922.
MALINDA MURRAY LEEPERb. 1820 TN then married ( 2 ) husband named JOSIAH MASON on Dec. 05, 1853 in Greene Co. MO and Josiah Mason is son of JESSE MASON and MARY SUGG per my data on this family.Josiah Mason must have died after he and Malinda Murray Leeper Mason had their 3 children listed below :
Children of MALINDA MURRAY LEEPER MASON and JOSIAH MASON are :
5. JESSE F. MASON b. 1854 MO 6. A. E. MASON b. 1858 MO 7.VIRGINIA L. MASON b. 1864 MO ; md. E. F. DODD, 14 Nov. 1881, in GREENE CO. MO.
Malinda Mason is then listed on the 1870 BOONE CO. AR Census as follows with her children by Mason as well as her son by GUIAN LEEPER listed as G. J. LEEPER who might also be on other Boone Co. AR Court records as J. G. LEEPER or J. D. LEEPER :
1870 Boone Co. AR Census HARRISON TWP enumearted on 3'rd day of June, 1870 by H. W. Fick, Asst. Marshall :
HH 04-94MASON, MALINDAage 50 FW b. TN ", Jessie F.age 16 MW b. MO ", Elonzo C.age 12 MW b. MO ", Virginiaage6 FW b. MO LEEPER, G. J.age 22 MW b. MO
As her daughter by Josiah Mason, named Virginia L. Mason married E. F. Dodd in 1881 in Greene Co. MO perhaps this family then moved back to Greene Co. MO where they had lived before Boone Co. AR.But as Malinda Murray Leeper Mason would be the sister of my own GG Grandfather RENNE MURRAY of GREENE Co. MO who had daughter also named MALINDA E. MURRAY who md. THOMAS H. RICHESIN and they moved to BOONE CO. AR by 1864, it appears this family may have known that MALINDA MURRAY LEEPER MASON was also living in Boone Co. AR.We have no records or files on MALINDA MURRAY LEEPER MASON however, and any information on MALINDA MURRAY LEEPER MASON and her 7 children who are both LEEPERS and MASONS would be appreciated.
