Ny name is Tim Koppenhaver from Bradford, PA. Are you related to any Koppenhavers from Jefferson County (Punxsutawney, Renyoldsville, DuBois). My grandfather's name was Kenneth Wilson Koppenhaver, born in Troutville, PA in 1919. His father was Harrison Emanuel Koppenhaver, born in Troutville? in 1883. That's about as far back as I can go. Hope to hear from you. Maybe we are distantly related.

Everything I have seen online seems to show that Wolfgang Koppenhoffer was born somewhere between 1650-1680's. This is based upon the fact that his son, Johann Thomas was born circa 1705. Yet you say you have information on the Koppenheffer family back to the 1500's. Was Wolfgang Koppenhoffer's father (who is shown as Jacob Koppenhoffer in some ROOTSWEB postings) born in the late 1500's--say circa 1599?

The following shows my tie-in to this line:

1) Jacob Koppenheffer md ?
2) Hans Wolfgang Koppenheffer md Anna Maria Haffner
3) Johann Thomas Koppenheffer md Anna Maria Zinn
4) Anna Regina Sophia Koppenheffer md Johannes Theiss/Tice/Deiss/Dice
5) John Dice, Jr. md Esther Keiffer
6) Frances Dice md George Ream
7) Ephraim Ream md Amanda Clark
8) James Franklin (Frank) Ream md Lillian Mae Anspach
9) Willis (Bill) Samuel Ream md Oma Marie Yoder
10) William Henry Ream md Frances Charlene Cruea
11) William Henry Ream, Jr. (myself)

William (Bill) H. Ream, Jr.
