The Harpst name was changed from Herbst in the early 1800s. Family originated in York, Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War. Johann Herbst was a Hessian soldier and captured and then escaped and lived in the York area.The names you have given me do not ring a bell. I understood that the Harpst line remained as HARPST and some went to the West Coast.
