If you are looking for the Copenhaver Ancestry (Also spelled Koppenhaffer), Please check these other web sites. (Ancestry.com, Genforum.com,and Familysearch.org)There is a lot of information out there on our ancestry.You will find out that the Copenhaver Line extends back to Wolfgang Koppenhaffer from Germany and his sons. Thomas Copenhaver came to Pennsyvania in the 1700's and married a Anna Maria Zinn. From their children, different lines both in the North South come from them. It's all recorded, you'll just have to figure out which line you come from. If you need som help, I may can help because I have names of the different children from each line. My E-Mail is: Dlane16@Juno.com or us this forum to answer. Good Luck. Dale

Copenhaver Surname - Johann Jakob Koppenhoffer, b. 1705

Posted: 942303781000
Classification: Query
Edited: 1102212220000
Surnames: Copenhaver, Koppenhoffer
I have received undocumented information which would seem to indicate that Johann Jakob Koppenhoffer (born in 1705) in either Meckesheim or Rublingen, Germany may be the eldest son of Johann Wolfgang Koppenhofer. We know Jakob arrived in Philadelpha on board the "Robert Alice" on September 11, 1738. This would make him the brother of Thomas who arrived in 1728. Also, we know that Wolfgang arrived in 1732.
I have considerable information on Jakobs descendants except his eldest son, Friedrich Ludwig who was born in Germany and accompanied his parents to America.
Can anyone help with this unresolved issue.

I need help with my search

I am trying to find my roots. I was adopted and am now trying to find my real family history. The trouble is, I can't get any further then my Great-Great-Grandfater on SSDI or even the family history pages. Do you have a list of copenhaver names and how they are related? If you do could you send it to me? I know it may not be my line,but anything is worth a shot.
Thank You.

You seem to have researched the copenhaver name in depth. My grandfather William Copenhaver was from the New Bethlem PA area. The only information I have on our name is that we are german, dutch and cherokee??! Any information would be so helpful.

Dear Lisa, I'll be glad to check my information and see if there is anything there that may match. I haven't really done a lot of research, only what I've found on the internet. I do have a lot of information that I've found on the net. Just let me know the approximate dates of your grandparents, and I will see if I can "find" them in some of the Copenhaver family trees. There has been more than one William Copenhaver, so I need to know what dates they fall under. I'll send you what I have. I'll be gone on vacation for the next two weeks, but I try to e-mail you when I get back. In the meantime, check these other websites.

I know that my grandfather died around 1972 so I would say he was born about 1892. I know my great grandmothers name was suzanne and somehow she was related to the Copenhagen snuff company. That our name was changed generations ago from copenhagen to copenhaver. IF this rings a bell for anyone, I would love to have any information. Thanks!

Walter, were you able to find the info. you needed? I have Jakob Koppenhoffer (b.d. 11/27/1705) as the son of Kichlaus Koppenhoffer and Anna Margretha. Married to Elizabeth Catharinen WEIDER. Son Friedrich Ludwig (Koppenhoffer) born 03/31/1737 in Germany. According to our family stories, Jakob had a son die on the way over from "the old country" and never got over it. As a result, he refused to set foot on a ship again. Interesting family story, but as to it's accuracy, well............
