Trying to find info on John W. Keplar b. abt. 1830 , married Amanda (Mandy) Bumgardner b. abt 1852, died about 1893, in Effingham, IL, married, 08 May 1873.
I found them on 1880 census, and they have two children listed, Samuel, b. about 1877 and Flora b. about 1873. Amanda was the daughter of Andrew J. and Burilla Pilcher Bumgardner. The last I could find Amanda, she was living with her mother Burilla and Burilla's second husband, John Bechtel in Mound, Effingham, IL. Have been unable to find them in any other census, death index, etc. I sure hope someone out there has a connection to them, and we can share info. Thank you very much.
