Adolph Joppich came from Reichenbach (?) Germany to the US in abt. 1871 and it is thought worked his way down through IL, MO, to TX where he is found in 1891. He remained in Bexar Co. TX for the rest of his life. He married Katharina Mueller--(married name--maiden name ukn). She had at least one son when they married, George Mueller. She & Adolph had 4 children, Adolph Jr., Katherine, Elsie, and Herman.
Would like to hear from other JOPPICH families to try to make a connection.
Corresponding names in Bexar Co are Dettmann, Tschirhart, Smith and Milan.
