Surnames: Cupery, Alsum, Levey, Smits
I am trying to put together a family tree for my newborn son. I can follow my line back a few generations and they carry the names Cupery, Alsum, Levey, Smits, and Dykstra. I am fairly certain that all of these families immigrated to central Wisconsin in the mid to late 1800's from the Netherlands, probably Friesland. Any help would be greatley appreciated.

Surnames: Smith
My Smith line from Iowa can trace back to Willian Francis Smith born in Wisc. 1851 probably Rock County. His father William Smith (Jr.) lived there also but, census records say that he was born in New York in 1820 and that his father was from Holland. Do you think there might be a tie in here somewhere?

Hello Brad,

I recently came across a Cupery-Tobak connection, in which Ben Cupery and Robert John Cupery married Tobak sisters.

Are you by any chance related to one of these two families?

Yes, you right: the cupery stems from Friesland. See:
Cupery with 34 pages hits.
Alsum with 5 pages hits
Levey with 2 pages hits
Smits with 34 pages hits; this name is general for the Netherlands.
Dijkstra (spelling with ij, not y) with 34 pages hits.
Friesland has own genealogical sites: and
Cupery hits from 1871 and on.
Alsum from 1814 some hits
Levey from 1853 and on
Smits from 1861 and on
Dijkstra from 1859 and on.
