I am looking for my Leap ancestors. I know that John Wesley Leap ( believe it was spelled LEIB or LEEP in Germany) was born on July 8, 1733 in Manneheim, Rhine River, Germany. I do not know who his father was or mother was. He married Margaret Emily Crow of German decent in 1768, but am unsure if this took place in Germany or in Virginia which is were he first came when he arrived to the USA. We estimate he left Germany between 1765-1775. His first wife died in 1799 and he then married a Sarah Barbara DeLeon. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it. Thanks.

By chance, do you know where Margaret Emily Crow Leap is buried? I am also a descendant of J. W. Leap's son, Gabriel's side. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I am researching Gabriel's descendants, specifically Caroline the daughter of Robert, b. abt 1827 in VA (now WV) Wetzel County. I am unable to find any documentation before her marriage to William Robinson in 1844. I would also like to find a marriage certificate for her parents Robert Leap and Nancy Mc Cloud. Thanks.
