Dale and Moira, I believe some of my family were actually part of the original Lepper family in the British Isles during the Palatine Emigration of 1709. I would be really interested in knowing how far back you have been able to trace your family. My ancestor, Philip Herman Lepper had approximately 12 or 14 children. He left London for America with only five of them (apparently the youngest). I am guessing that some of his older children may of chosen to stay behind and settled in Ireland and Scotland as this is where the British government placed many of the Palatines as well.
Hope to hear from you!Mark Lepper email@example.com
