John Vaupel Clothiers Ad

Clothes for Corn! 1884 Newspaper advertisement for John Vaupel, Clothier in the Freeport Journal-Standard (Illinois, USA). The Vaupel Clothier was located at 108 Galena St. Freeport, Illinois, USA. John Vaupel immigrated to the USA from Reichensachsen, Hessen and opened his shop in 1880. He was the brother of my great-great grandmother, Christina Vaupel Blumenstiel. She and her family followed him to Illinois in 1885, along with their aged mother. #genealogy #familyhistory #freeportillinois #falknerjarrell #vaupelgenealogy #vaupel #oldphotos #clothingstore #johnvaupel #johnvaupelclothier #vintageadvertisement #advertisement #illinois #illinoishistory #clothingstore #manclothes #manclothing #gentleman #haberdashery #menswear #freeportjournalstandard #newspaperad #newspaperadvertisement #reichensachsen #hessen #hesse #immigrant #immigrants #midwest #farmersonly
