My great grandmother was a Rippstein. Lorene Reno Rippstein. I was fortunate enough to get to know her until I was about 16. She lived to 92 and lived in the Olmos Park area of San Antonio. There is not a lot of information about this family but a lot of them lived in the Fredericksburg, Texas area originally. I do have some stories and names of people. Contact if you need any info or have any to share.
