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.
