This is also my line. I would be interested in the source of the story of Casper being a stowaway and other information you might be willing to share. I have only been able to identify 10 of his 11 children - one of which is my GG-Grandfather. Several sad stories in this family also.

I have the following children for Casper and Elizabeth: Elizabeth, 1866; Lillie (my great grandmother),1868;Henry, 1870; Anna, 1872; Katherine, 1874; Emma, 1876;Fred, 1878, Alvin, 1881; William, 1883; Edward, 1885. Who are you related to? Do you know if the Moeller's came from Lene, Germany? If so I may have a source for information on Conrad, father of Casper

What do you know about the Bentlage line? When I visited St. John's cemetery I found the following Bentlages but I don't know how they fit in the family....Ludwig, Cyrine,Dorathea, T George, Fred, Henry, and Alvin.

My email address is smcole214@yahoo.com if you want to write directly to me.....Susan
