• Hello -

    I am looking for any information on Riepenkroger who lived in the Hanover area in the mid 1800's.

    Thank you!


  • Hallo,

    you can find the name "Riepekroger" at -ancestry-. Joseph Riepenkroger,*24.10.1832 Paderborn, +14.05.1903 Leavenworth, Kansas. He emigrated 1854. He married Maria Thekla Plagenburg,*05.05.1835 Hannover, Borger, Prussia ,+29.12.1902 Leavenworth. 8 children are listed.

    Is this the family you are looking for? Then I can give you further information.

    Best wishes


  • I believe he is related and may have at least one brother, named Herman (Hermann) Riepenkroger, my great-great grandfather. There is also a John Riepenkroger that resided in Leavenworth, KS in this time frame. I believe they are all brothers but can't tie them together. I'm also wondering if there are any records in Paderborn or any relatives still in Germany.

    Thanks for your help!

    P.S. I believe Joseph had a bottling company with Mr. Becher in Kansas.
