The links indexed below are Lepley-related raster images of pages from the 1881 book "History of Knox County, Ohio". This book is available at the Clayton Library, Houston, Texas. The 1949 book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County, Pennsylvania" by Charles B. Korns indicates that Catherine Korns, daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth (Reiber) Korns of Southampton Township, married Joseph Lepley. I threw the info on George Lepley in because he is also from Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
The raster images are large grayscale files that will take awhile to download, because they were taken with a digital camera. When you view the raster images, you may need to "expand" them with your browser software to make them large enough to read, or else right click on them and download them to your computer for viewing.
