NOTE: In March 2008, a researcher for Berne, NY, Harlold Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org), stated the following as a possible explanation as to why the family moved to Canada.
"Continuing my research to answer your questions, I find that Johan Adam Papst, father of Maria Papst, served in Butler's Rangers and was awarded land in the eastern part of Upper Canada according to George Cloakey. John Papst, b. 1777, youngest brother of Maria Papst, died in 1869 in Osnabruck, Ontario. Maria's sister Elisabeth, married Gotlieb Otto, a distant cousin of mine, and they too moved to Osnabrouck (spelling?). Another brother, Rudoph Papst moved to Upper Canada. "
