Looking for Leab and/or Leib families from PA or Indiana

I have been on a notorious search for Leab or Leib families from PA and/or Indiana. The farthest back I have gotten is Paul Leib b.1802 and his wife Magdeline b.1806 both from Germany. The only son that I know of that they had was Peter Leib b.1848 in Pennsylvania. Somewhere along the line our last name changed to Leab. My father has informed me that years ago there was a disagreement of some sort between family members and some of them moved to Illinois and changed the spelling back to the original version of LEIB. I have not found these members of our family yet. I am also looking for desendants or relatives of a John W. Turner who spent some time in Pennsylvania before or around the time of World War 2. This man had a short relationship with my Grandmother, Martha Leab, and then apparently went off to war, never to be seen again. John W. Turner fathered a child with my Grandmother, a son, Gary L. Leab, my father. My father has never seen or even heard from him in the last 63 years. My Grandmother wrote to him once but never heard anything back. I believe she said that his last known location was Manhattan, New York. Any help with this would also be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Looking for the Leab Family from south central Pennsylvania

My name is Kevin. I've been trying to research the Leab family and am not having any luck with it. Our family, from what I'm finding out so far are mostly from the Ft. Loudon, PA area in south central PA. I have a Leab family bible that dates back to 1909, apparently a wedding gift someone bought for my Great Grandparents, George Edward and Clara Mae (Rexroth) Leab. There are birth and death dates in the bible of Leab family members and a few clippings from newspapers. The ones that I'm having trouble finding are Peter and Margaret (Scott) Leab, my Great Great Grandparents. Their names are in the bible but no dates were put with them. Some people have helped me with census info. but thats not really what I'm looking for. I am trying to find dates of birth and death for them and where they might be buried. Anybody that can help me with this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you,
Kevin Leab
