I am at my wit's end trying to find info re my gr-grandfather, known to me as Casper Apley, born June 1851 Switzerland, immigrated to US ca 1870, married Emma Katherine Sturm in 1890 (don't know where), enumerated in 1900 Graves County KY census, supposedly died October 1900 and buried in Graves County KY. So far no luck verifying any of this info. Not listed in any cemetery indexes for Graves County -- name of cemetery I had does not exist -- had two children born in Union County KY and one in Posey County IN. Can anybody help? I'm beginning to think this man did not exist!! I'm also almost positive his name was NOT Apley when he immigrated but was changed from something else; however, my grandmother's maiden name is shown as Apley.

My Great Grand Mother was Hazel Rankin Apley and Lawrence C Apley. My Grandfather was Neale Apley I have pictures of him in Indiana my Father was Gary A Apley!! All I know about my Great Grandfather is that he was a pipe fitter and his father was from Switzerland. I have no records of his father who would be my great great grandfather and I am also at the end of my rope when I try to research my grandmother Elizabeth F (Brass) Apley. If you have anything to help that would be great! If not its okay I am just starting my research. Feel free to email me
