Pifer Family Genealogy Forum
Rachel; I know ur msg is two years old, but I'm hoping U R still searching? I have a Heiser/Hiser - Pifer connection in Ohio. Anthony Heiser married Margretta Pifer in Montgomery Co.,OH, or Miami Co.,OH, and lived and raised their children in Mercer Co.,OH. Recently found in 1850 census of Dayton, Montgomery Co.,OH, a Jacob & Sarah Pifer, with a son named Jacob, abt 20, and a daughter, Margretta, about 13. All are born Germany, except Sarah - PA?? I believe this to be my Margretta's family, but some of it doesn't fit. For instance, Margretta has stated in 1900-1910 that she was indead b.1837 and came to USA in 1838?? So, how cud her mother be born PA?? Or did the 1850census guy goof?? We all know that census takers have a way of messing with our minds, right? I believe that Jacob, the son, stayed in the sw Ohio area, but cannot find Jacob & Sarah in 1860 - unless they have "returned" to PA??
Any clues?? Are we talking about the same Pifer family? Give me a holler either here or GWP0427@yahoo.com
