Hey everyone. I'm looking for information about any Kaspers that had/have roots in Chemung County, NY or Tioga County, PA.
The earliest records I have are from John Kasper (1849-1905) and his wife, Margaretha Webber (1856-1899). Her father was Nicholas Webber. All 3 of them came to Chemung, NY from Germany. I also know that all 3 are buried in a cemetery in Elmira, NY, though Margaretha's stone is badly erroded.
From what I can gather, Margaretha and John had 8 children.
Lena b. abt 1880
Mary b. abt 1881
Carrie b. 1883 d. 1978 ---married Frederick Gardner
Sophia b. 1885 ---married an Antes
John Peter b. 1886 d. 1988 --- married Mary Wheeler
Margaret b. 1889 ---married a Motchman
Charles Nicholas b. 1882--- married Florence Hill
Mathilda b.1894 ---married a Mapes
I know very little about Lena or Mary Kasper, as I have no idea what their married names were. I believe that Lena went by another name however.
I also know that there is a branch that went farther north in NY, and another that went to the western US. That is about as much I know at the moment.
If you have any information about ANY of those I mentioned, please let me know.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
