Re: Topfer Family in and around Roppershain

Johann Jors Heyne, son of Philipp Heine, married Martha Elisabeth Topfer on Dec 26, 1776 in Cassdorf. She was daughter of Reinhard Topfer. Both Reinhard and Philipp were dead by the date of the marriage. Johann then married Anna Elisabeth Riemenschneider on April 21, 1783, also in Cassdorf. So Martha was presumably dead by this time.

Things get a little muddy after that, but there is also a Johannes Topfer and a Carl Philip Topfer (b 1880 ) in the mix. I also have a Johann Heinrich Topfer, b 1842, but I don't know if maybe that isn't the same person as Johannes Topfer mentioned above, since I have no dates for him. There is also a record of Justus Jors Heyne, b 1826, marrying a Catharina Elisabeth Topfer. Some very kind distant cousins are doing some detective work for me and are photographing the church registry as they are able. Will post to this forum if I find more details.

Would also appreciate any information you may find on the Heyne/Heine families from Roppershain.

Thank you
