Searching for information on cousins -- Emma Fackler, born in 1840s, married Christopher Julius Heppe, known as CJ. The family built pianos and had a store in Philadelphia as late as 1915. Their children were Emily, Florence (a male), Virginia, and Alverda.

I just received a CJ Heppe & Sons piano and am interested in finding any information I can about its history. If you have information regarding the piano company, please let me know. Thank you.

Kurt, This is a VERY belated reply (sorry, life intervened). I also own a Heppe piano, which was given to my mother by one of the Heppe family . . . if you're still interested, I can tell you a bit about the Heppe piano company.

Let me know the best way to reach you, and I'll send you (in MSWord format) a copy of my chapter on the Heppe family. The piano-making branch were first cousins to my maternal grandmother.

My first piano as a student was a baby grand Heppe piano back in the early 1950s. I was residing in Atlantic City, NJ at the time. I no longer own the instrument but always wanted to know about the CJ Heppe family and the piano which had an excellent reputation. Thanks....jdirocco1@sbcglobal.net

Surnames: Heppe, Fackler
Last week, after re-reading some of the posts & after email discussion with another Heppe piano owner, I googled Heppe, & found many newspaper articles about C.J. Heppe (founder of the Philadelphia firm) and his son, Florence J. Heppe, who with his wife Mary Frances (McDonald) Heppe, mmanaged the firm at least until 1930.
I have some geneological information on the family (my ggmother's sister, Emma Fackler, was the wife of C.J. Heppe), which I could provide if you are interested.
