Trying to help a Leeper descendant find her ancestors. Found William H. Leeper on 1910 Cenuse in Oklahoma, Woods, Patterson, enumeration district 276, line 59.It says he was 34 and that he was divorced.He was born in Indiana, father in Ohio, and mother in Indiana.Occupation listed was a farmer.He is living near the Maltbie family.
January 29, 1913 he married Rosa Catherine Maltbie in Alva, Wood, Oklahoma.Their marriage licence shows that he was 38 on the day of their wedding and they were residing in Freedom, OK.
Their only son was Paul William Leeper who was born on February 9, 1918, in Las Vegas, Clark, Nevada.Paul's birth certificate says that his father, W. H. Leeper was 45 on the date of Paul's birth and that W. H. was born in Indiana.
These three sources indicate varing birth years for William H. Leeper...1876, 1873, 1875.
William abandoned Rose and Paul in Colorado shortly after Paul's birth.He did not know anything about his father or his family.
My friend would really like to find some relatives.Can anyone help?
