  1. Has Children Jacob KLOPFER b: 13 JUL 1650 in Moos/Buhl, Baden, Germany Family #5. Cazimer Kl�pfer (1811-1844) and his brother, Josef Kl�pfer (1817-1856) came to America in 1837 or 1839 aboard the ship Albany (7 Kl�pfers were on board). They settled in Richland County near Olney in southern Illinois. Other family members emigrated in 1840 - two brothers, Benedict (1802-1872) and Jacob (1808-1885), one sister Katharina (1806-1871), and two cousins Dionys (1794-1861) and Michael (1811-?). This group landed at New York on the ship Ilzaide (16 Kl�pfers were on board). Dionys and Michael Kl�pfer went to Illinois, to an area known as New Trier Township, north of Chicago along the shore of Lake Michigan. The other family members settled in lower Ontario, Canada, near New Germany, Kitchener and Maryhill. This is by far the largest Kleopfer/Kloepfer family in America today. This family can be traced back to Jorg Kl�pfer (1621-1711) of Moos, Baden, Germany. My data base contains 1403 direct Descendants of Jorg Klopfer. Almost all of this family uses the "oe" spelling. Most of this family are Roman Catholic and live predominately in Illinois, New York, and Canada. The great great grandson of Dionys Kl�pfer, William Wesley and his son Bill published a book in 1993 titled "Kloepfer-Kl�pfer Genealogy & More" which describes this family in some detail. See references 3 and 4 at Books and References for more information on this family. Also see Kloepfers of Kappelwindeck, Germany for more information on the origination of this family.

  The following exchanges of e-mail were between William Wesley Kloepfer, Jr. and Dr. Thomas Mangos of Germany. Dear Dr. Thomas Mangos:
  The following are my earliest traceable ancestors-Jorg Klopfer born Kappelwindeck 1621 died Schwarzach 14 Feb 1711 and wife Magaretha Noltner died Nov 1691
  in Schwarzach. Old Vimbuch church records show Gorg Klepfer was serf to Margrave in 1653 (after 30 year war all must be ordered new-also serfage). Jorg Klopfer came from
  Kappelwindeck, that was the Margrave-District, 1700 Margrave (The serfage of Jorg to the Margrave was attested)
  Margareth-Abbey serf. 1658 Abbey attestation. The children get the serfage of the mother.
  We have concluded although my ancestors were from Moos Ulm Buehl that they first came from Kappekwindeck and eventually lost touch with the Kappelwindeck
  Kloepfer/Klopfer"s. Many Klopfers stayed in Kappelwindeck. I have a video tape of my father and my visit to Kappelwindeck Klopfers and our joint conclusion on the matter. I could send you a copy. Kappelwindeck is mentioned as early as 1430.
  Kappelwindeck was incorporated into the district city of Buehl in 1932, through the mutual consent of both towns
  In the year 1392 - St. Maria, Earliest Catholic Church

[email protected] *** Your letter actually shows two data, first one is July 23, 1668 (left), the other May 17, 1602 (bottom).
  To me, the letter was written in 1602, an additional note was added later indicating that something happened to the house (or the letter) in 1668 - I don't think it is 1658.
  I am not really sure, it seems that the note at the bottom left hand is a different handwriting. The information doesn't make sense to me yet - it turns out that either the house that was taken as a deposit/pledge burned down together with the one owned by Martin Lienhardt - or the original letter was lost.

  It probably will take time to get to know the meaning behind the document.
  May be the house was given to somebody else in 1602 and Georg Kloepfer took it over in 1668, assuming that he had also to take over the debts his predecessor has collected over the years, even though the house was burned down during the war. Individual Record FamilySearch� Pedigree Resource File
