Piper Family in the
My Piper Line
My maternal line second great-grandmother was Mary Ellen Piper wife of Robert Harper.
She was born about 1827 and died in
When I gathered the information on
the Pipers in
Christiana Piper and William Scarlet 1807
Mary Piper and James Hughes 1815
Lewis Piper and Mary Graves/Groves 1816
Margaret Piper and John Thomas 1817
Christian Piper and Ann Dillow 1820
John Piper and Mary/Polley Ott 1821
Catherine Piper and John Cogle 1824
George Piper and Susan Near 1824
Ann Piper and John Knox 1824
That is nine Pipers who might be siblings and I added Jacob Piper born about 1791 who appears in census and land records and whose probable second marriage took place in 1848.
Records for Christian Piper
1800 and 1810
These Census records for Christian don’t list children by name but do indicate about 10 children in his household born between 1785 and 1820
Christian Piper is listed in the
1815 to 1824 tax list in

Probable Children of Christian Piper born about 1760 and wife Maria Margaretha Aegener
Christiana Piper (Scarlet) 1787–1880
John Piper 1790–
Lewis Piper 1790–
George W. Piper 1790–1840
Jacob Piper 1791–

Christian Piper (Junior) 1800–
Margaret Piper (Thomas) 1800–
Catherine Piper (Cogle) 1802–
Ann Piper (Knox) 1807–1880
Note: I do not believe that the oldest three sons were all born in 1790 but there is just not enough information to be more exact.
Some time before 2004 I was given
or found information on a Deed from
Research on the Aegener family has been done by Celia L. Hartmann and can be found on Ancestry.com and Rootsweb.com.
My George Piper born about 1790 and probably died after 1832.
He married in 1824 and his daughter Mary Ellen was born about 1827
In the 1830 census he was listed in
He and his wife probably also had a daughter Sarah born about 1832 who married James Rigg in Taylor County WV and died in 1874. I have very good DNA matches to several of Sarah’s descendants.
Two Younger George W. Pipers
Both were in the 1850 census in
George Piper (1) married Ann (Dillow?)
George age 32
Hannah J. age 4
William W. age 1
George age 39
Hannah J. age14
William W. age12
Joseph age 10
George age 51 and Joseph age were in Logan County Ohio
(William W was married living nearby)
1880 George age 61 is in Shelby County, Ohio with Joseph and family.
I have recently learned that George probably has two sisters who also lived in Logan County Ohio with a mother named Nancy or Ann. I believe these are children of Christian Piper Junior.
George Washington Piper (2)
frequently listed as Washington Piper married Elizabeth Hughes in
1850 he was listed as George W. Piper in the home of John Piper
1860 age 36 and 1870 age 46 he is listed as Washington Piper with his family in Somerford, Madison County Ohio
1880 I can’t find the family except one married son George W with his family in Somerford.
1900 Elizabeth “Pifer” is in
The fact that this George
Washington Piper age 23(?) was living with John Piper age
In the 1860 census Washington Piper and his wife’s first son was listed as George and their second son Lewis, often older children were name for their grandparents.
I believe this George Washington Piper is the son of Lewis Piper born about 1790.
Two Nancy Ann Pipers who married Dillows
Nancy Ann (1) married Thomas Dillow
1850 with John Piper son of Lewis (Ann Dillow age 22 name indexed as Billow)
1860 with 2 daughters Mary Elizabeth and Sally (Nancy Dillow age 37)
Mary Elizabeth married William Pearl
Sallie married William Henry Hardy
1870 not found
1880 next household after Mary
1910 with married daughter Mary E Pearl (Nancy Dillow age 83)
Thomas Dillow and wife
Nancy Ann (2)
Married Lee Humphrey Dillow in 1852 as Nancy Wilt
It appears it was the second marriage for both as the 1860 census shows Dillow children born before 1852 and a Henry Wilt age 14 as well as Dillow children born after 1852.
Ten years earlier in 1850 I found Lee with wife Susan but I did not find Nancy and the Wilt family
I do not have any direct evidence that this Nancy Ann was in fact a Piper. If she was a Piper she could be a daughter of Jacob who did have a daughter Nancy or perhaps Christian Piper Junior who is listed in the 1830 census as having 3 females under 10 years old in his home
