Most of the Geppinger family from Cass County died out. One went to Ohio, but had no children so that line died out. I haven't found anyone related directly so don't know if someone else survived or not. My gr grandmother Caroline Geppinger died at 39. She had 3 surviving children, but only my grandfather had children - also 3 and only 1 had children, my dad. His sister had none and his brother died at 21. As far as I could find, only my sister and I carry on. She has 2 daughters, no grandchildren yet, I have 2 sons and 6 grandkids so a little bit of the Geppinger blood goes on with us.
I have the Geppinger line back to 1500s in Germany. If I can add anything to your files, contact me at hstairs46@verizon.net and I'll be glad to share.
