Don't know if there might be any relationship here or not.My greatgreat grandmother was Mary Klopfenstein. I do know for sure that in the early 1900's she lived in Stark County, Ohio.Her brothers were Joseph, Herman, and sisters Anna, Martha. I have no birthdates for them.She was first married to Daniel Becher and then remarried to Joseph Rich. Her father's name was Peter Klopfentein. Don't know if there is any relationship to Michael but the Stark County caught my interest.
