This represents the information I have on Pfefferle. This line is not a direct line in my research.There is another posting by a David J. Sautter who has information on Johannes Pfefferle; and off the top of my head, I do not recall whether it was this same forum or on Ancestry.com's message forum. He has researched quite a bit from Endingen
and even made a presentation there of the first two installments of his book.
I hope this helps you.My connection is that Katherine Ann Pfefferle was first wife to my father-in-law. Following her death, Harold Morton Piper married again, and they had my husband.No one knows what became of Katherine Ann Piper, daughter of that first marriage.She would be half-sister to my husband.
