Note: He was living in the Judenplan in 1852 per the 1852 List of People who were listed outside the Chortitza Colony. This list states that he was listed in the 1850 Chortitza Colony Census with his brother Peter Lepp at Einlage #59. He was living in Chortitza, Chortitza Colony, S. Russia in 1862 but was originally from Einlage and had also lived previously in Kherson (likely a reference to the Judenplan) per the 1862 Einlage M. B. Baptism List. The 1862 baptism list gives his age as 33 in 1862, suggesting that he may have been born in 1828 or 1829 rather than in 1827. He was a state-employed Judenplan Mennonite village overseer of the villages of Kamenka and Islutschistoje. In 1865 the Guardianship Committee in Odessa relieved Lepp of his job because of his proselytizing activities for the Mennonite Brethren (A Mennonite in Russia: The Diaries of Jacob D. Epp, p. 58). He was the 2nd Aeltester of the Einlage M. B. Church from 1876 to 1903. His Friedensstimme obituary says he died at age 85 1/2. See Mennonitische Rundschau 2 Aug 1912 submission from Peter Toews #5580 regarding Aron Lepp's 1866 purchase of Peter's Andreasfeld leasehold.
