Are you aware that our ancestor Phillip KLEPPER did NOT die in Tennessee?

You will find the census record for George KLEPPER on page 347. I do not know who all others in his census record might be. One is most likely his son Samuel. George did NOT die in the War of 1812. He was too old to have served. Lucille found 1812 military records for other KLEPPERs, but not for George. He was most likely a year or so younger than Phillip. The K after his name in the old notes that Lucille used was for KLEPPER -- just as Joseph did not have Bach as a middle name; he was a bach. = bachelor = ledig (Ger.).
