I just joined ancestry and found your posting. My grandfather was Paul Thomas Beicher who was born in Marion OH in 1890. He had a brother George M and 2 sisters (Edith and Hattie)who lived in Columbus OH. Paul moved to WI and George moved to CA. I find it interesting how the name has evolved. There was a Casper Beicher from PA who served in the Civil War along with 2 others I think.
