Among these children is
John Looper (1775-1810) m. Susannah Barker (?-1835), d/o Burrell Barker and Millie Gunn
Lindsay Calvin Luper and his wife, Sarah Martha, were confirmed in the Shiloh Lutheran Church, October 13, 1878, Lewisville, NC
In an earlier incarnation of this page, we named Lindsay's first wife as Mary Ann Paulina Hauser, daughter of Martin Hauser and Susannah Chitty. We now know that Mary Ann Paulina Hauser moved to Indiana with her parents, married Daniel Bruner there in 1844, and died in Kansas in 1891, whereas Lindsay Luper's wife Mary died in 1864 and is buried at Concord Methodist in Lewisville NC. Death records for James, William and John Luper all name their mother as Mary Hauser.
Update, February 7, 2016: Thanks to Ann Holladay, we now know that Mary was the daughter of Thomas Hauser and Polly Moreland. Ann found estate records for Thomas Hauser in Yadkin Co. NC that name Mary's spouse as "Lindsay Looper".

James Luper married Fellicia Conrad Nov. 1856 in Forsyth County, NC. The 1860 US Federal Census, Forsyth Co., NC names James Luper's wife as Paulina. James and Phillicia Looper and children are included in the 1880 US Federal Census, Johnston Co., IN
Previously we listed Henry and John H. as two different children. In the 1900 census, Henry is present, listed as born December 1887, but no child John. The Social Security Death Index gives John's birth as December 1888, which is consistent with the marriage of James Thomas Luper and Catherine Conrad in January 1888.
