John Joseph Rapp was my grandfather, who had three sons and a daughter, Frank (my father) Jack, Fred and Rosemary. Only Rosemary survives, now living in California. My father married Helen Villeneuve and had 5 children, Sharon, Patricia, Kathleen, Blaine, and me, John. All now live in Canada. My understanding is that John Joseph Rapp had brothers and sisters in New York, and that we were descendants of the Rappite sect in Pennsylvania, originally coming to north america from Alsace.
