Keuper Family Census Records
Johann Jacob Keuper (1807-1889) & Maria Dorothea (Pfeiffer) Keuper (1816-1886)
The Keuper family came to America in 1840. According to an article published in the Sheboygan press in 1931, Johann Jacob Keuper (1807-1889) came to the country first and then returned to bring his family in 1840. They settled initially in upstate New York where their eldest daughter, Elizabeth (my 2md gr grandmother) was born in 1841. According to the article, they moved to Wisconsin in 1843, settling first in Waukesha Co. and then moving to Sheboygan in 1847.
