There's 31 of us researching this area. Hoping someone can set up a msg board where we can pool research info and help each other, since it was rule over time by Germany, Poland, Prussia, and Russia.

Johann Kieper,b.Abt.1820 in Dustledorf,D.1881
and Charlotte Sylvester,b.1822,d.1914 were my
Greatgrandparents.Is this line of any interest
to you.They had 7 children, born in Bohischau
West Prussia and all died in the U.S most in
Wisconsin. Their son, Albert Wilhelm, was my
Grandfather and I have some information on
that line.I have been trying to find out the
year of their immigration, Port, ship, etc.

i have no more information other than in the first msg - carl landed in baltimore about 4-1881 - he did have a sister (do not know her name nor any particulars)- she married a nimmer - do not have any information on him either
there are many nimmer's in the vandyne/black wolf area in winnebago county wisc - so may be semi-safe to think they too lived in that area
does any of this help you?

sorry, when I wrote there was a sibling to Carl and Johanna Kieper. I meant son named Herman R. Kiper married to Albertina Rusch. No real information on Carl and Johanna Kieper except they were from Germany.

Tell me about August Kieper. Here is the info I have:
Herman Kieper was married to Albertina Rusch
They had several children: William Kieper(my grandfather), Rose Kieper Swanson, Emma Kieper, Herman Kieper, Arthur August Kieper,and Frank Kieper. Herman Kieper and his family lived in Cicero, WI, Seymour Wi, Chilliwack, Canada, Ferndale, WA and finally Jefferson, Oregon. They are all buried in the Jefferson Cemetary. I believe Herman Sr. had a brother named August and he named his son Arthur for his brother. Arthur was born Nov. 1, 1881 and was baptised in the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Black Creek. An A. Kieper was one of his sponsors. It may be that your August Kieper was my great-grandfather's brother. Do you have an e-mail address?
