We are traveling right now.When I return home, I will send you what additional info I have.
My Mother is deceased; but she did tell me that the Ripoll family here are descendants of the Ripoll family from Ripoll, Spain. She said the town was named for them.
She said that a relative was a priest from Spain who spent a short time at the mission of San Juan Capistrano in Ca.
Quite some time ago, I was there and saw a plaque in the garden with his name.
I'm so happy to have stumbled upon you. i guess we're distant cousins. Will send you my info in about a week.
