    Casper & Elizabeth were born in Switzerland along with their first four (4) children (Gaspard, Elizabeth, Mary Ann and John). I have a copy of the passport from when they came to the US. On that document you can see how the spelling of Beukert changed to Bergert. - Nicole Bergert - bergertn@bellsouth.net

    Robert A. (Bob) Bergert - As outlined in this document the origin of the "Bergert" family has been traced back several generations to
    the town of Unterseen, Switzerland. This fact has been verified through the acquisition of the original family passport which has been preserved and passed down through generations of family members. A copy of this document is provided in this manuscript. Elder members of the family often stated that the original family name was not "Bergert" as we know it today. These individuals indicated that the original family name may have been something similar to "Baker" or "Bagert." The passport, dated march 1, 1833, clearly states that it was issued to Gaspard Beukert, a resident of Unterseen, Switzerland. The signature of the applicant on this document however, clearly reads "Caspar Beugger." I suspect that the name of "Bergert' as we know it today evolved either because of translation or a heavily accented pronunciation and misinterpretation of the name during the period of time following the family's arrival in this country. Upon examining the various stamps of approval on the back of the passport, it would appear that Gaspard Beukert and his family (wife Elizabeth, and children Gaspard, Elizabeth, Marie, and John) departed Switzerland sometime during March of 1833. It appears that they passed through the city of Basel, Switzerland en route to the coastal city of La Havre, France, on the English Channel where the embarked on a voyage to America. The final stamp of approval indicates that the family passed through Albany, New York, on the 30th of April 1833.
    Ohio Census records for the years 1840, 1850 and 1860 indicate that the family settled in Carroll County, Ohio (Rose Township), a fact confirmed by a number of elder members of the family. The surname depicted on these census records appears to be "Baker" however, the family origin, the names and ages of the children, as well as the location of the residence, all describe the original "Bergert" family.

    In the census Casper was listed as Casper Baker.
