ALBERS, KEMP, KEMPF posted by Jeff Kempf,Sr. on Tuesday, September 8, 1998

Requesting info on Phillip and Apalonia Albers Kempf who migrated to Cincinnati from somewhere in Germany in the mid 1800s. The info I have is limited and God willing I will at least get a home town in Germany to start researching about my g.g.grandparents. I need their story, and it has been so evasive for years. Unbelievably, relatives no little or nothing and are unwilling to even understand the quest! Anyway, Phillip was born Oct.1829 and died 1899 and Apalonia was born 1835 and died 1874 from scarlet fever. They had ten children and Phillip was a shoemaker in Cincinnati. Please feel free to contact me at or or or 1-317-780-6812 Thanks and God bless, Jeff Kempf,Sr.
