Lepley ~ Blume Lineage
This site is best viewed at a 1280 x 800 screen resolution.

The Lepley and Blume families are related to our great-grandmother, Irene Belle Mankamyer. Irene was born to Josiah Christian Mankamyer and Ida Belle Bittner. Ida's parents were Nathaniel Bittner and Lydia Lepley.

After Ida Mankamyer died in 1898, her daughter Irene went to live with her Aunt, Alice Lepley-Blume. Alice was the sister of Ida's mother, Lydia.

Members of our Lepley families married into the Blume families; becoming neighbors, friends, and relatives with our Mankamyer ~ Bittner families. We have also started to work on our photo history of the Mankamyer ~ Bittner families.

We’re still researching these families, but we do have all our Mankamyer ~ Bittner and our Lepley ~ Blume family research papers.
