Jesse Watson Repp was my grandfather by his second marriage to Beulah Roen Repp (1899-1985). They had two sons, Donald Repp of Sacramento CA (b. 1925?) and my father, Darrel Roen Repp (1932-1999). I was aware that he had been previously married, but never could find out any more information until now.
Jesse was stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, with his second wife and two sons just before the beginning of WWII. The day that the bombing began, Jesse ran down to the harbor and jumped onto his ship, and didn't see my grandmother and his kids until the war was over. My dad (Darrel Roen Repp) and my uncle (Donald Repp) had vivid memories of that morning.
I would love to find out more about Jesse's father and mother, and which line of the Repp family he came from!
