My ggggrandfather was Petri Kiefer who married F Strup in Kirf Germany (Prussia). Their son Nicholas was born in Beuran and was my gggrandfather. Nicholas married Margaretha Jacob who was the daughter of Antonius Jacob and Anna Schwenck on Feb 17 1795 in Kirf. They had four children that I know of. They were Nicola Anna Marie born 1797; Anton born 1810; Pierre and Lucia whose birthdates are unknown. Anton who was my ggrandfather married Eva Berg (who was born on Jan 20 1812 in Nittle) on Dec 30 1835 in Nittle Germany. Eva was the only child of Peter Berg and Margaretha Schauer. She had a half brother Matthias who was born in 1818 and a half sister Apolonia who was born in 1824 from the marriage of Peter and Antonia Lauer. Anton and Eva migrated to the Ashford/Lomira area of WI in the mid 1850's. They had the following children: Anna who married Phillip Weber; Nicholas; Elizabeth who married John Zehren; Matthias who died young; Margaret who married Nicholas Rohlinger; Maria; Peter and John P who married Katie Greineisen. John and Katie are my grandparents. They moved to Saskatchewan Canada in 1902 or thereabouts as homesteaders. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has any information on any of these families.
