The oldest of four brothers and two half sisters, this sibling group settled in the Louisville, KY, area; one brother later moved to IN. A review of census entries suggests that Henry was in Louisville, KY, by 1850 and a prosperous brick manufacturer by 1870. Census entires also indicate that given name of Mr. Schoppenhorst's wife was some form of Lavonia; her maiden name was Torstrick. Children were Rieke, Louisa, Henry, Sophia, and probably Mellie.
