Kasper was born 31 May 1811 in Bleiwasche, Westfalen, Prussia (now known as Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany) to Johan Peter Pieper and Maria Clara Becker. He departed Germany on the "Orpheus" from the port of Bremen. (Roll 205 list 949).

The Ships passenger list shows that 4 of his 8 children came with him. Two children had died in Germany and the two oldest (Anna Maria & Johan) came over in 1856 and settled in Utica, NY.

From Utica, Kasper went to Klaasville, Lake, IN during the civil war and about 1869 they left Klaasville (leaving a recently married daughter, Elisabeth (Pieper) Hasse behind) and went to Benton Co., IA.
