I'm researching the Vesper family in Buffalo, NY.My GGGgrandparents are Frederick (b. 1819 Prussia, d. 1912 Buffalo, NY) and Sophia (b. 1823 Nassau, d. 1901 Cheektowaga, NY). They immigrated between 1846-47 and brought with them my GGgrandmother Wilhelmina (b. 1845 Hessen, d. 1918, Buffalo, NY).
In the US, they had 10 more children: Sophia (b. 1848); Louisa (b. 1849); Henry (b. 1852); Frederick (b. 1856); Philip (b. 1858); William (b. 1859); Charles (b. 1860); Mary (b. 1862): John (b. 1864); and George (b. 1871).
They had a general/small animal farm on French Road in Cheektowaga, NY for more than 40 years. It appears most of the family moved into Buffalo, and 2-3 sons remained working on the farm.
