  • Notes 
    • In 1870 the Lepps family was living in the area of the Dublin Post Office, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH. Irena (or "Arena" as the census named her), was a 7 year old girl born in Ohio, living with her father James Lepps, a 44 year old farm laborer, and mother Celia, 44, and siblings: "Hariett," 16; Armina, 12; Sarah, 14; John, 10; May [Mary], 5; and Isabella [Belle], 3. All the children were born in Ohio. The older girls -- Emily, Hariett, Armina and Sarah were all "attending school." Son John, only 10 years old, was doing "farm labor." The younger girls, "Arena," May and Isabella, had no assigned occupation. 1870 U.S. Census, Dublin PO, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 593, Roll 1200, stamped p. 675).

      The 1880 census lists Irena Lepps as an 18 year old "servant" in the home of George and Mary Richards. Irene was born in Ohio of parents also born in Ohio (although the 1870 census reports that her father was born in Virginia). The Richards house was about 7 houses down from the Lepps family home. 1880 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 9, Roll 1015, stamped pp. 173A and 174D).

      According to Barbara Snouffer Erbele Woods, Irena died giving birth.
