Johannes KÜSPERT was a farmer in Stemmas near Thiersheim, Bavaria. In 1828 his son, Johann Wolfgang KÜSPERT, married Anna Katharina KRIPPNER , daughter of Johann Martin KRIPPNER. In 1824 the couple lived in Selb, Bavaria, where Johann Wolfgang was a shoemaker. Their son Johann Leonhard KÜSPERT was born May 8, 1824 in Selb. The son’s name was KRIPPNER in the Selb birth record since the parents were unmarried at that time. I do not have information on any other children they may have had. The son, Johann Leonhard KÜSPERT, immigrated with Catharina Barbara ROGLER and their son Johann Nicol ROGLER (parents again unmarried) arriving in Baltimore on October 15, 1849. In later U.S. records they were known as Leonhard, Catharine, and John KESPERT. From 1855 on, they lived in Youngsville, Sullivan Co., NY. Leonhard died April 25, 1875. Their other children were Margaretta, Wilhelmina/Minna, Sophia, William, Henry, Louisa. I can provide additional information about them. I am interested in any siblings of Johann Leonhard KÜSPERT, siblings of his father Johann Wolfgang, or of his grandfather Johannes, and their spouses and descendants.
