I posted Mainly under the Iowa Pieper family. Illinois was the stopping point in the families migration west. My great great grandfather left from Illinois along with his brother, August, we assume. My decendant ended up on a homestead outside Dodge Nebraska. August ended up in the Anita Iowa area and the main geography of that family runs from Stuart to Audubon and Atlantic today. I put this together after meeting a Piepie that was farming on the hardtop county road running north out of Stuart. We drove to his grandmothers house who in 1973 was like 93 years old. She had newpaper clippings from like 1915 reflecting this. I am figureing that August was her Grandfather. His brother and my decendent, I am not sure of his name who settled in Dodge Ne.
