I am looking for some information on the Keppel family from Hirschberg. This family came to the States in 1853. They came from Hirschberg. The parents were Charles/Carl and Frederika. They had three children at the time they came to the States. The oldest was Heinrich/Henry, next was Maria and then Ernst. Ernst was my great great grandfather, he was also known as Ernest and Anson.
The only thing I know is that they came over in 1853, I believe they came into New York City, the Port of New York, I am not sure.
If anyone has anything to offer, please do so. It seems as if I have come upon one of those brick walls with Ernst
