I have no knowledge about the connection you are searching for, but my paternal great grandmother was a Krupp before marriage. My grandfather was always ashamed of the fact that "the" Krupps in Germany were supplying arms and ammunition to Hitler's army. I found a small article once concerning this and wrote down what it said. If I can find it now, I will post it here. I once wrote to the Krupp's in Essen, Germany to see if we were indeed related, but got a negative reply from their archives. Imagine being so big in your country that you have your own archives!! The Krupps have!! They denied being related to anyone who immigrated to America!! Maybe I can find that letter too.
