Peter Hefner, wife Mary (Kisner) Hefner, daughter Emma Hefner and Peter's brother Michael P Hefner, sister Katherine Hefner (later Mrs John Deggand), and Mary's brother John Kisner came to Topeka. Peter's dad was Joe Hefner and mother Katherine Dliagen Hefner(born Nov 10, 1843 Pfeiffer, Russia). Peter and Mary had daughters Kate and Mary in Salina Kansas and boys John Hans Peter 1895, John Hans Dec 13, 1902; George Dec 5, 1898; Joe Dec 18, 1900; and Andrew Oct 8, 1905 all in Topeka, Kansas. I believe Kate and Joe (the parents) died 10/28/1932; and 1/05/1894 respectively in Kansas (probably buried in Mt Calvary Cemetery in Topeka). Peter and Mary were my great grandparents and Joe and Kate my great-great grandparents. Michael married Magalina C Hefner perhaps nee Helm.
