I have an original postcard photograph of “Perry and Charlie Rupp, sons of D. H. Rupp”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo was taken in about 1909, and both men look to be in their 20s.The card bears a 1 cent stamp, and was mailed to “Mr. Roy Rupp, Kansas, IL” on Dec. 22, 1909.In the body of the message is: “Merry Xmas to all.Hope you will like your new home.Your bro. P. I. Rupp, 239 N. Church, Decatur, Ill.”Decatur is in Macon Co., IL.
I found in the 1900 census for Hickory Point (Macon Co.) IL the family of Daniel H. Rupp (b. 1851), with wife (and stepmother of children) Sarah.Daughter born Aug 1884 named Alice and son Perry I., age 11, born Oct 1888.In 1880 census of Martinsville (Clark Co.) IL, Daniel is age 29, wife Marthia E., 29, children Henry, 5, Fredda, 4 and Roy, 1.
