1. Occupation: tavern about 1840 in Fleetwood, Berks, PA. 3 From "History of Berks County, Pennsylvania," page 1040:

"A mile from this place is the old village of Coxtown, now the thriving borough of Fleetwood, of which a separate sketch is given in the chapter on the boroughs. Near Moselem, and in the neighborhood of St. Peter's Church, there is an old tavern stand kept years ago by a man named Kemp. A later keeper was Joel Becker, and for the past thirteen years Henry Becker. On the State road to Kutztown, where the Fleetwood road crosses the same, public houses have been kept for many years by the Crolls, Elijah Moyer, Michael Dumm and the past forty years by Solomon Leibelsperger and his family. The present hotel and store building was put up in 1852. In the store is kept the Moselem Springs post office, established in 1846, and which had, in 1885, Joel Leibelsperger as postmaster. A daily mail from Fleetwood is supplied."
