Barbary b.abt 1775 Ky. daughter of Jacob COPE (Kope) and 2nd wife Mary Eve. Jacob and Mary had the following children: Dolly, Barbary, Margaret, Elizabeth, Daniel and Samuel. He also had children from his first marriage but don't know them or wife. Uriah and Barbary had the following children: Mary Ann, Elizabeth, Jacob, Nancy, Uriah and Leonard.

Ky) had several children: Mary Ann, Elizabeth, Jacob, Nancy, Uriah, Hannah, Samuel and Leonard (not in that order). I am a decendent of Leonard. If you are interested please email me at carseyr@sisna.com. Thanks

Greetings! I and several other descendants would love to hear from you. I descend from Uriah Lefter, father of Jacob, father of Benjamin, father of my grandmother. I have Benjamin's photo and bio, and several papers on Uriah, including a description of him physically, as well as the terrible wounds inflicted by a British soldier. While in his fifties, he went on to marry a young woman of German extraction from Bucks County Pennsylvania -- and had 12 children, as you probably know. His family came to Virginia from La Rochelle, France, in 1685, according to some brief notes written by Benjamin. We have written to Willie Carsey, but he never responds.

I am researching Uriah and Jacob Lefter for a friend who doesn't have access to the internet. She is related thru Jacob's daughter Hanna that married John L. Vaughn and settled in Knoxville, IA. Would love to correspond and find out what information you would have on the Lefters that I can give her. Please feel free to email me off the list!
Thanks,
