  • Notes 
    • Rachel was born in Baden and moved with her family to Hay Township. She married Andrew Kuepfer/Kipfer, son of Jacob Kuepfer and Maria Lichti from St. Agatha. It is not known whether they married in Wilmot or Hay, but a year after their marriage, Andrew purchased part of Lot 27, Concession XII, from the John Oesch estate. In 1877, they sold it to Christian Kropf and took up residence at St. Agatha. In 1903, they purchased a place in Shakespeare, now 3973 Huron Street. Rachel died in 1917 and is buried in the East Zorra Mennonite Cemetery. Andrew may have been living with his daughter Mary in New York State when he died.
