Hello ~

Does anybody have sourced information concerning the family of BISHOP JEAN JOSEPH KOPPES of Luxembourg? I believe he was born to Jean and Anne Marie Traufler in Luxembourg on 16 Sep 1843 and died there on 29 Nov 1918. Is this correct?

My g-g-grandmother, ELIZABETH KOPPES (b. 17 May 1835 in Garnich, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg; m. NICHOLAUS TRAUFLER on 21 Nov 1854 in Belgium, Ozaukee, Wisconsin; d. 11 Jan 1917 in St. Cloud, Stearns County, Minnesota) was the bishop's cousin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Jan

Hello~
Thank you very much for the information regarding the Koppes family. My ancestor's obituary states that she was a cousin of the Bishop. I do not know how distant a cousin she was. I do have newspaper articles showing that he visited her small town in Luxembourg, Minnesota. Do you have a copy of the family tree on WORD document or Family Tree Maker format? I would very much like to have a copy. Thank you very much. Jan janetix@adelphia.net.

Would love to see a copy of the Obit and I can see where
you might fit in the tree but so far I cannot see where you
are in the Bishop family tree. Give me the name of your
Grandfather and mother and gg grandfather andmother, this
might help.

book. However your family is in our book also.

The bishop and I are 1st cousins, 4X removed. His father was Jean Koppes, son of Michael Koppes and Anna Maria Schuh. Jean Koppes' older brother was Daniel Koppes (b. 16 Oct 1798 at Greiveldange, Stadtbredimus, Remich, Luxembourg). Daniel Koppes is my 3rd great-grandfather. One of Daniel's daughters was Elizabeth Koppes (b. 1835 at Greiveldange), my great-great-grandmother. One of Jean's sons was Johannes (Jean) Joseph Koppes (b. 1843 at Canach, Remich, Lux), who became the Bishop of Luxembourg. My grandmother and the bishop were first cousins. The newspaper accounts and her obit were correct, after all.
