Have been working on the Hinkey line for a couple of years and have a mystery with Martha Hinkey. She ties in with the Herman & Margaretha Hinkeys of Ottawa, Illinois who immigrated from Prussia in 1853. There are references Martha's daughters Mary Elizabeth and Anna calling the sons of Herman and Margaretha "Uncle". A census shows Martha and husband Ephraimbeing born or coming from New York. Would like anyone with a Lepper/Hinkey connection to contact me. Maybe you can help to clear up this mystery. My e-mail addresses are:
