Re: KOPF-Jacob Germany

In Reply to: KOPF-Jacob Germany by Kerry Pinion-Bennett of 91

I was looking for the Kopf name in the genealogy section. I have a great or great-
great grandfather who was named Jacob Kopf.
Our great-great grandparents came from Germany and first settled in or around the St. Louis, MO area. Some Kopfs later moved further South to Mississippi, which is where I live.
There are quite a few older "Kopf" relatives still living who are now in their 80's. I have an aunt and uncle in their 70's. Some of these people may know more about Jacob Kopf.
I live in a small town of about 12,000. The family history of our town lists the
first Kopf settlers as wagon and furniture craftsmen, farmers/horticulturalists, etc. I do know that my grandfather, who died at age 52, was a farmer and owned a large fruit orchard.
There are still some Kopf's listed in the St. Louis area and,of course,in my town. I have a cousin who may have more information. I know that she worked on the the family's history at one time and looked at old cemetary headstones.
You may reply to the above e-mail address if this is of any interest to you or
someonelse out there.
