I am interested in finding out more about my grandfather John & grandmother (?) Kasper/Casper.To my knowledge, my mother (Dorothy Jane, known as DJ) was a late-in-life child, coming maybe 15-20 years after an earlier sister (name unknown).I think that sister had 4 children (maybe all boys) and she died of cancer--uterine, I think.
My grandparents used to live in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia society before the stock market crash.I remember seeing a picture of my grandmother in the city's first automobile; and my grandfather's income had something to do with cars.
My mother was raised by a governess.After the crash, they lived in a log cabin (I think outside of Pittsburgh), and got their water from an outside pump. My mother went to Chatham College on a scholarship.
I always thought my mother's maiden name was "Casper" but according to my grandfather'sdeath certificate, it was Kasper.My grandmother died sometime between 1952-1956.
I know my mother had an aunt (I think on her mother's side) who left her money.I wish I knew more names--maybe some of these facts will identify them.
