Re: Piepho's from Montana & Minnesota

I have long tried to connect the Rice County, Minnesota Piepho's with the Lake County, Indiana clan with no luck. The answer lies in Germany, most likely in the provence of Hannover. The Indiana Piepho's hail originally from the town of Riepen and later Kolenfeld which is about 12 miles southwest of the city of Hannover. If you would check out Ted Cash's Web site (http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~cash/) you will get an overview of my branch's German ancestry. Certainly there must be some record of the Minnesota clan's German roots somewhere. There is a lot of data out there (see http://feefhs.org/) it is just getting it sorted out.
