My line goes son Thomas Jones from Thomas Wells Jones married to Frances Klepper(1801)her parents were Augustus Phillip Klepper(1771) and Temperance Gilliam(1771)and his parents were Jacob Klepper(1741) and Barbara(???) I found something that said that Johann Valentin Klepper was his father and he came over on the German Ship Chance in 1766. But when we pulled up the manifest of CHANCE the Joh. Valentin listed has a spelling of KLOPPER. along with a Johann Wilhelm Klopper. Maybe that second Johann Wilhelm is the brother of Jacob and Johann Valentin is the father? After we spelled it with an O we then found a whole bunch of stuff with that spelling. Will try to work on this line some more soon. If you find anything out, I would love to hear from you. You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if that works better than genforum. Thanks!
