Seeking information on the Reiffers/Reifers family from Rodershausen,Luxembourg. Michael Reiffers,(dropped one f when in US), born 1840, came to America sometime between 1855 to 1859. He initially settled in Dubuque and Elkader,IA where he worked at odd jobs, then as a farmer. He married Doretha (Dora) Steen in Elkader and then moved to Alexanderia, South Dakota. I think he and his brother Nicholas came over together, but seperated somewhere along the way. I have no information to prove this and that's what I'm looking for.
