My great grandmother was Elisabeth Irene Kiper Welch and I am just trying to research her background. My grandmother who was Beatrice Welch Lewis use to receive newsletter from a Kiper group in Tennessee about renunions they would have every year but since she passed away several years ago, they no longer come. I remember my great grandmother saying that she came from Tennessee. She also had Kiper relatives that lived in Muskogee, Ok but I was to little to remember them. Anyone that could give me information on this, I would greatly appreciate it.
