  • ID: I1359
  • Name: Johann "John" Rupe
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1762 in Baltimore County, Maryland
  • _UID: 2B7B4B14D952CD4AAA71DBD7EF1400253C2A
  • Note:
    Possible that Johann Jacob RUPP and Maria Barbara NONNENMACHER did not have a son named John RUPE b. abt. 1762.

    *****

    If they did have a son named John this is a possibility:

    This is ONLY a possible lead to John Rupe. Did he take the "caravan" with his brother Henry and sister Barbara, wife of George Weaver? Did he end up in Franklin County, Virginia, by 1799?
