Margaret Clore (b. Bet. 1720 - 1730, d. Aft. 1785)
Margaret Clore (daughter of Johanns Michael Klaar and Anna Barbara) was born Bet. 1720 - 1730 in Orange County, Virginia , and died Aft. 1785. Notes for Margaret Clore: The following information is from the Clore-Glore Genealogy manuscript by Delma Rae Carpenter, Sr. (1881-1967). A copy of this is available at the Madison Co., VA Library. This manuscript is a typescript and update of another, handwritten, Clore-Glore Genealogy manuscript by Dr. Arthur Leslie Keith. The original of Keith's manuscript is at the Newberry Library, Chicago., IL. Please note that some of this information has been updated by other researchers in the meantime and I'll try to add notes with the current information. Page 21-22: Margaret Clore (daugther of Michael Clore) is to be distinguished from her sister Agnes Margaret Clore who married Michael Oneal. On one occasion the latter signes her name as Margaret Oneal, in the deed of April 9, 1763. Margaret married Paul Lederer (Leatherer and later Leathers) before June 20, 1751 on which date Michael Clore and John Clore sold to Peter Leatherall (undoubtedly a perversion for Leatherer) 100 acres. Paul Lederer was in the Hebron community as early as July 13, 1737 on which date he witnessed deed of Nicholas Yeager to Adam Yeager. It would seem that he was of marriageable age at this time or soon after. Paul Lether (with Johannes Klor and Dorothea Klor) was sponsor at the christening of Ludwig Krickler, born October 1, 1764, son of Christopher Krickler (Crigler). On June 5, 1779 Paul Leatherer, Michael Leatherer, and Samuel Leather signed a petition paying for the petition of the county (Culpeper). In 1782 Paul Leatherer was taxed for 161 acres. At same time John Leatherer was taxed for 250 acres. Paul Leatherer made will November 5, 1780, probated November 21, 1785, Culpeper Co., Va. The will was witnessed by John Hume, John Yowell, and James Crain. Testator mentions wife Margaret (last mention found of Margaret), and children Michael Leatherer, Nicholas Leatherer, Samuel Leatherer, John Leatherer, Paul Leatherer, Joshua Leatherer, Susannah Leatherer, Mary Yowell, and Margaret Leatherer. Sons John and Joshua are names as exectors. No other Leatherer (Lederer, Leathers) has been found comtemporary with Paul Leatherer. It seems certain therefore that all the later Leatherers of Culpeper Co., Va., were his descendants, therefore descendants of Michael Clore, but the connections have not yet been made.
