Migration of the Koep family to the New World and Oceana


After the First World War, Austria became a republic. The Treaty of Versailles broke up the empire in 1919 and many of the Sudeten Germans were incorporated into the new nation of Czechoslovakia. In the 20th century, many Austrians migrated to other parts of Germany or Europe, as well as to North America. In the United States, the majority of settlers landed in Philadelphia, and moved on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Many German settlers also migrated to Canada, particularly Ontario and the Prairies. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Koep were Johann Kopp, who came to America in 1738; Erdman Koppe, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1748; as did Ulrich Koppe in 1749 and Jacob Kopp in 1751; Johann Kopper, who settled on Long Island in 1780.
