Dear Penny,

I was very surprised to see your email because this message has been posted so long I almost forgot about it.

According to your email, Louis was your father's uncle--what was his given name--not nickname? I would be happy to exchange information with you. Would you prefer email or hard copies of the info I have?

Louis' parents: August Klepper born 5 June 1877 and Rose Hilkemeyer (no other info). Family stories say that August was killed by a train when Louis was a boy, but I haven't confirmed that story.

My info is very sketchy annd I am looking for additional info to take me beyond Louis' grandparents. Henry Klepper (4 Feb. 1844) and Augusta Ziegler Klepper (30 May 1851) had nine children, one, of course, was August.

Let me hear from you and we can compare notes.
