Giefers in Kansas
Posted by: James Albers Date: February 26, 2000 at 02:16:48

Well, everyone seems pretty connected on this site, so if anyone can help me I would appreciate it very much.

I am trying to extend my family history along the Giefer line, which I am connected to through the Eck family.

My gg-grandparents were John Eck (b. 20 Feb 1862, New Trier, Dakota Co., Minn.; d. 2 Feb 1928, Andale, Reno Co., Kan.) and Josephine Giefer (b. 6 Apr 1866; d. 6 May 1929, Andale, Reno Co., Kan.).

Josephine's parents were Joseph Giefer and Anna Marie Hommertzheim (b. 31 Mar 1841; d. 19 Apr 1921). According to my information, Joseph Giefer died in Minn. shortly after their arrival in the US, but that is about all the information I have.

If you can help me out, my e-mail address is:

Br. James Albers, OSB

P.S. Peggy Knoblauch Ballard, you probably know my dad's family as they are also from St. Rose Parish in Mount Vernon. Virginia Albers is my grandmother. Just a little side information, I am also originally from St. Joe-Ost.
