After his mother's death in 1746 and his father's defection, Caspar Heppler Jr., decided to leave for the New World. The first born Jacob, and baby Christopher were born at Vaihingen and set sail with their parents. In his preparation for emigration, he sold his property in Vaihingen. In the deed books preserved in the Vaihingen Town Archives are two deeds dated in April 1748.
I chose music for this page by the German composer, Johann Sebastian Bach, who died in 1750, two years after the Hepler's emigrated to America. It would have been typical of the music of the time when our Hepler family was still in Germany.
