Jacob Piffer is in the Miami co. OH 1880 census. He is listed as a laborer, age 49 born in Baden (as are his parents). His wife Catharine, age 47 born in PA as are her parents. Son William, laborer, single, age 17 born in PA. Son David, at home, age 12 born in Ohio.
William E. Piffer married Louisa Dusickle 19 oct 1884 in Miami co. OH. They had Jennie May born 13 oct 1885, Minni, and Maggie. William and Louisa and daughter Minni died in 1889, maybe due to a train accident. They are buried along with Catharine Piffer in Maple Hills cem. in Tipp City, Miami, OH. There is a Catharine Piffer listed in the probate records with insanity.
Jennie and Maggie were raised by Uncle Fred and Aunt Lillie (Matilda Shawler) Dusickle. Fred and Matilda and who we believe to be Fred's parents, Rudolph and Rebecca, are buried there also.
Does any one know about David Piffer and about Maggie Piffer? I just found out that these 2 people are part of our Piffer family. Does any one have any leads in PA? or further back to Baden? Where were the Pifer's coming from?
