Peppers from England 1870

My great grandfather, Matthias Randolph Pepper came from Birmingham England and settled, along with his in-laws John & Priscilla Cooper, in New Albany in 1870. Later his father and brother, William and William Henry Pepper, also emigrated. Matthias polished the first plate glass in the US and later moved to PA and OH to assume management positions at Ford Plate Glass. William Henry died (around 1894) in IN and is buried there. Any info about the Peppers or possible sources of info will be appreciated. I am interested in a DOD for William Henry, as well as a cemetery. Thanks for your help. Kathy
