  • Notes 
    • In 1870 the Lepps family was living in the area of the Dublin Post Office, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH. Belle (or "Isabella" as the census named her), was a 3 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; "Arena" [Irene], 7; and May [Mary], 5. 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. «i»1870 U.S. Census, «/i»Dublin PO, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 593, Roll 1200, stamped p. 675).

      Ten years later the size of the family was reduced a bit. Belle (named "Elizabeth" in this census) lived with her father James, 55, a laborer, her mother Celia, 42, and her siblings: Sarah, 24; John, 21; and Mary, 15. Emily, Hariett and Armina had moved on, perhaps were married. Irene was working as a "servant" in the household of George Richards, about 7 houses away. «i»1880 U.S. Census, «/i»Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 9, Roll 1015, stamped p. 174D)
