Thanks for the response re the Robert Brewer memorial. The day I sent the note to you I also entered a photo request. So, if anyone ends up fulfilling the request perhaps the inscription on the stone will answer yea or nay as to whether this is my cousin Robert M. Brewer.

Leepers (2) in Tipton-Pixley
I BELIEVE the Harold A. Leeper you list (no headstone) is Aubrey Harold Leeper, born 9 Jan 1904 in OK, to Isaac Lee Leeper and his wife Rosella Ward. About 1935-1939 he married Nettie, since they are listed as married in the 1940 Census for Tulare Co., CA.

Aubrey Harold Leeper died 27 Mar 1975 in Modsesto, CA. He had operated the Leeper Cheveron Gas Station, had been a policeman in Tulare Co., CA, and he had been a Democrat (public records). After Nettie died he married then divorced twice.

I am a Fisher Family researcher, and the Leepers married into the Fisher Family.
