Josef Schepper may have been born in Deutsch Tschantschendorf (district of Güssing), Burgenland (now Austria), according to granddaughter Mary Schepper Klucsarics. Josef’s wife, Maria, came from Punitz, Mary says. They lived in Punitz.
We don’t know much about Josef Schepper (Joseph Lasica’s maternal great grandfather, or mother’s mother’s father) or his wife Maria Szakasits (Joseph Lasica’s maternal great grandmother). We hope to find more information by writing to Austria.
