John and Barbara Eve (Boeh) Filer are my maternal great grandparents. They came to America around 1850, but we are not why or how they got to Kentucky. Supposedly John and Barbara were married aboard ship. I have a bureau that they brought with them from Germany and a baby quilt made by Grandma Barbra Filer, also a picture of John and Barbara when they were older. We do not know John's parents, but have found out that Brabra's parents are Johann Albert and Barbara (Dumbser) Boeh. Paul Boeh has a book detailing a great deal of information about the family.
My grandfather (a son of John and Barbara) was Joseph Sylvester Filer who was born in Cynthiana, Kentucky and died in Centerville, Ohio. They family use to keep close associations with each other and had many reunions, but that has fallen apart. I would like to communicate with you about our families so please contact me.
