Wesley L. Pieper Bible
Posted by: Joan Olsson (ID *****1032) Date: February 05, 2003 at 23:12:23
  of 344

Many years ago (1964-1966) I purchased a Bible in an antique shop, either in San Jose, California, or in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Engraved on the cover is Wesley L. Pieper, Christmas 1886. There is no personal information in the Bible but there are scraps of newspaper articles and an old Christmas card. I have always been curious about who he might have been and if any of his family might wish to have the Bible. A little research produced evidence of a Wesley L. Pieper in the 1920 and 1930 census in San Jose. He was apparently married, perhaps to a Sarah (census image blurred) and I find an Olga Pieper mentioned in a source (Mary Carroll--Ten Years in Paradise) on Ancestry.Com. She appears in the same section as a Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Pieper.
