William H. Leaper(Ackley)
My great grandfather, William H. Leaper(Ackley) was raised by George W. and Margaret (Berryhill) Leaper in Pennsylvania; where they lived and died.George W.and Margaret married in Lewistown, PA. in 1864 and eventually settled in Holidaysburg, Blair County, PA.It was apparently family knowledge that William H. Leaper was adopted and his birth name was Ackley/Aickley.William's birthdate was 17 June 1868/69. On an 1870 census in PA. George W. and Margaret Leaper are the only ones listed, so William had to have been adopted or "taken to raise" after 1870. I could go on about this, but I will post this much and see if I have any luck."ANY, ANY" information is greatly appreciated.My email is kipsperry@yahoo....no I am not the Kip Sperry who is theprofessor/genealogist.It is a coincidence.
