A search of the 1880 United States Federal Census >from Manhattan, New
York, New York found Henry, 40; Mary 36, Florence, 16; Sophia, 14;
Lilly, 12; Grace, 7; Walter, 5; Elsie, 3; Henry is a Merchant. The
family lived at 161 East 116th Street, (Manhattan), New York, New York.
Henry was born in Berne, Switzerland. Mary, Florence, Sophia, Lily were
born in Ohio. Grace and Elsie in New York and Walter in Berne. There
should be passenger ship papers for the family returning to New York
after 1875.

City-Greater, New York; Roll: T9_898; Family History Film: 1254898;

For the 1870 Census:
A search in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio for 1870 Census found
Jules KUPFER, 32-years-old, born in Switzerland and Mary KUPFER,
25-years-old, born in France, his wife. Jules was a watch case maker.
But no children. This cannot be the couple. Maybe relative.

But a search in New York found them! (name was misspelled Kapfer in index)

imports woolens, born in Bavaria / Bayern. Mary, 27, born in City

I was wondering if anyone could help with the antecedents of Sophie
KUPFER. She was born in Cincinatti, Ohio in Feb. 1866. She died young
at the age of 40. She was married in New York City in 1892 to Albert
M. KOHN. I know her descendents, but not her parents.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give!
