In Reply to: EPHRAIM and MAHALA PIPER (PIFER) VA by suzanne of 363

This should fill in gaps for you. The Pifer Family can be found in early Shenandoah County, VA, records. They attended the Dutch Chapel, which was the early name for St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Strasburg, Shenandoah County, VA. Early German records of the Dutch Chapel show that David Piper & wife had a child name Ephrain, born June 15, 1814, and baptized Oct. 7. Marriage bonds of Shenandoah County, VA, list Ephraim Pifer & Mahala Marker securing a bond on Nov. 26, 1838. Did you notice, on John Alexander's (or Mahala's tombstone) that John was Mahala's second husband? Providing security for the Pifer/Marker marriage bond was George A. Marker.
