Lana, the James Loper of Spencer, Indiana, in not the same James as the one in Greenup, Kentucky. They died at different times. Here is some information that I have for the Spencer, Indiana Lopers that might help. 1850 Census Huff, Spencer, Indiana 11401141Wm L.

This is a possible marriage for William William F Loper to Francis Owen, 6 Nov 1849, Clermont, Ohio.
