Descendants of William Leeper

Notes on the records: In each list of children below, every child is assigned a lower case Roman numeral (i, ii, etc.) to indicate birth order. Each also receives a unique Arabic numeral (1, 2, etc.) which precedes the birth-order number. If a child has no known descendants or the the next generation is not included, the full birth, marriage, and death information for the child appears under the listing for the parents. If a child has descendants listed later in the chapter, then just the name is shown and a plus sign (+) is placed in front of the Arabic number. The full information on the child appears in his or her own listing under their Arabic numeral.
