I read your message on Gust Family Genealogy Forum in response to one I posted some time ago. I am very interested in learning more about Emil Piepkorn. He could very well be a brother of Augusta Louisa Piepkorn who married John Gust as one of their children was named Emil. They were in Mower County, Udolpho Township and that is where John died. Augusta died in what is now South Dakota where she and some of the children had gone to homestead. I think they were in the Huron area of S.D. Hopefully you have more information than you indicated in your message. I am at I will be looking forward to hearing from you. I already found one missing cousin from this forum and would be most pleased to find some connections to the Piepkorn side of the family. The Gust-Piepkorn group has been the hardest group to find out any information before coming to the United States. We think they came in the early 1870s.
