Leppan, Miss Letty (insect collection)

Born: 1855, Place not known.
Died: Date not known, Place not known.

"Miss Letty Leppan" of Kimberley donated many insects to the Albany Museum, Grahamstown, during 1892. She was presumably Miss Letitia Hasley Leppan, then aged 37, daughter of George Leppan and his wife Sarah Webb, and an aunt of Lilian L. Leppan*. She may also be the same person as Letitia Harriet Leppan, who died in 1929.
