John PFEFFER of Danbury
Posted by: David Sautter (ID *****3600) Date: March 26, 2010 at 15:34:20
  of 974

The 1900 Danbury census lists John PFEFFER born Oct 1853 in Germany with wife, Mary, and two daughters, Agnes and Anna. For a study of immigrants from a small Württemberg village I seek to confirm this is the Johannes Pfeffer, born Oct 1853, who left Germany in 1871 for America. He had trained as a cooper. In 1880 census surname spelled Iffer; in 1910 census surname spelled Peffer. In all census he was a 'hat finisher' living on Liberty Street. If City Directories confirm spelling as Pfeffer and I obtain death date and location of burial I will invest in necessary civil records. All of my research available on and some published. Many thanks if someone is able to assist.
