Notes  A Hanns Wolff Koppenhofer sold his farm in Rublingen, Germany in 1732 to Johann Michael Franck. Also, he paid taxes there in 1732. According to someone doing research on the Smyser (Schmeisser) family (Smyser Family in America 1731-1931), it was learned that Anna Catharina, the youngest daughter of Wolff Copenhaver, was born in Rublingen. It would be f airly safe to assume, therefore, that the Wolff Copenhaver, of the Pens ilvania
Merchant passenger list was the same one who sold his farm in Rublingen
in 1732.
Prior to 1743 Wolfgang and his family attended Reeds Church in Stouchburg, Pennsylvania. In 1743 they became charter members of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, located between Myerstown and Stouchburg, Pennsylvania. He and some of the older members of the family are believed to be buried in the older part of the Church Cemetery.
Wolfgang was a farmer, but we have found no evidence of his having owned land in Pennsylvania. It is likely that he continued to farm the land on which he settled when he first came to Pennsylvania for as long as he was able to do so. There seems to be evidence that he spent the last few years of his life in the home of his son, Michael.
