|I am reseaching the Kreps family of Morrow Co.Ohio.Martin Kreps was my Great Grandfather(b.June 4,1831 in Linginfeld, Bavaria, Germany). I believe Martin to be a son of Abraham with a sister by the name of Christina. We first appear in Morrow Co. around 1840. Martin married Christina Wirth(Aug. 14, 1856), thought to be the dau. of Johann Micheal Wirth & Anna Christina Muller, parents both believed to have been born in Bayern,Germany. Martin is believed to have had 10 children. My grandfather David W.Kreps being born in 1864. David married Cora Mae Tischer in 1891. Cora's parents Jacob G.Tisher and Leah Garverich(Gerberich)m.1861 in Morrow Co. Cora & David then moved to Crestline,Ohio were they farmed. They had 9 children, my fathers name was Virgil Lloyd Kreps.He married Margaret Barbara Krichbaum Oct.26,1940, Dau.of Oscar Micheal Krichbaum & Hattie Frances Stephan (m.Dec.23,1908 in Crawford Co.).|
I am hunting for information on the following names: Kreps,Krichbaum,Tischer(Tisher),Stephan,Wirth,Garverick (Gerberich) Bossler,Winkelfaus(Winkelfoos),Muller,Pherman,Ruhl,Mathias,plus others.
