Important update on Verena (Wigger) Pfeffer -the wife of Bavarian-born Joseph Pfeffer of Evansville, Indiana. She was born in Marbach-Canton Luzerene, Switzerland. She was the daughter of Nicholas Wigger and Elisabeth Schumacher of that same town. She emigrated with her family in 1842, settling in Ferdinand, Dubois County, Indiana. She met and married Joseph Pfeffer -Son of Joseph Pfeffer and Franzeska Wiederkehr of ?-Although there are Wiederkehr entries from Switzerland -also Mahrbach. This was verified in the St. Ferdinand Parish history.Verena's and Joseph's parents are all buried in the St. Ferdinand Parish cemetery in Ferdianand, (Dubois Co.) Indiana. I have seen these graves personally. Sadly, Verena's husband Joseph committed suicide by hanging in Evansville. The two are buried in St. Joseph Cemetery in Evansville. Verena and Joseph are the parents of Frank "Peck" Pfeffer who moved to Newark in 1905. He worked as an iron molder at Wehrle Company. He later owned Peck's Restaurant. He died in 1937. I met with another relative of the Wigger family in summer 2014, from whom I received this verifiable information.
