Adolphus Doll Leopard was born 1860 in South Carolina. I located his death certificate thorugh the South Carolina death index and he died 24 Oct 1927 of prenicious malaria. His son John was the reporting party. His father was Elijah Leopard.
I was able to locate Adolphus in the 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, and 1920 census records. In the 1870 census his mother, Nor, is the head of household. He has siblings Isabel 15, James 12, David 11, then Doll 10, Angeline 7, and Martha 3. They are living in Edgefield, South Carolina.
1880 Doll is now a boarder working in the cotton mill in Greg, Aiken, South Carolina.
1900 he is married to Nora living in Georgia. They have children Orla, Edar, Bessie, John. There is a William born 1883 that is already gone from the household.
1910 Doll and Nora are living in Langley, Aiken, SC with Edward, Bessie, John Henry, and Annie.
1920 Doll and Nora living alone in Langley, Aiken, SC.
Doll's wife was Nora Watson. She was born in 1864 in South Carolina. She died on the same day as Doll..24 Oct 1927. Her parents were SF Walton and Sarah Howell of Edgefield SC.
Looking for Doll's father Elijah...I located his family in the 1860 in Edgefield. It has Elijah age 26 and Martha age 27 Lepard. It listed Doll's 3 older siblings Isabel, James and David.
I then found Elijah's family in the 1850 census in Edgefield. He is the son of WD Lippard and Nancy. I believe his father was William Leopard located in Edgefield as head of household in the 1840 census.
A little more research uncovered that Elijah was in the 7th regiment Co. F of the South Carolina Infantry during the Civil War. He disappears before the 1870 census with his last child being born in 1867.
Thank you very much. your letter tells me that William Leopard was a member of Doll's family and born in 1883, I think that is my grandfather.. I have a cosin who is 79 and she tells me of Doll Leopard and my grandfather knowing each other. These boads do work. Do you have anymore informatiom on the Leopard, Lepard or Lippard family.
