It may surprise you to learn that the Koepke name originates in other parts of Germany as well and is now spread pretty well across the globe. There are numerous families with our name in South America as well as Australia, let alone European countries like Spain and Portugal, where they have been located for centuries. It would, thus, be extremely difficult to further coordinate research for this name and not neccessarily interesting, since we are not related to each other.
So, the individual who researches his own family may happen to come across this list here but would probably not get too much use out of it.
I can read and write the old German,(Stterlin) since I am old enough to have learned it in school, but that still has not helped me to find a missing member of our family who came to North America in 1872 and has only been heard of once since then.Good Luck
