Samuel and Nancy (Perrine) Leeper were
married August 5, 1822, Maysville, Mason, KY

Nancy Perrine Leeper was born 4 Dec 1801, Maysville, Mason, KY and died 30 May 1885, Colfax, Harrison, MO

He was the son of Charles Leeper and Margaret Miller

Of his children, Nancy J. born 1835, Illinois and Huston, born 1833 in Ohio, it would seem that this Leeper family moved from Ohio to Illinois between those two dates. Moreover, this family should show up in Ohio on the 1830 census, and in 1840 on the Illinois census--what counties? Also, Charles, their son was born in 1822, in Kentucky and William was born in Ohio, 1828. This family then moved from to Kentucky to Ohio between those dates and perhaps show up on the 1820 census for Kentucky.
