Yes, it looks like there might be a connection. I need to look up the name of the ship that my Johannes Bepler and wife Elizabeth Ruppel were on.I remember they did land at Baltimore MD and the date sounds right.
Were your Ruppel protestant?Mine were.Is the St. Paul Cem. at a Lutheran church?
Have you looked at the LDS church records yet to check the birth dates of the siblings of Henry?
Certainly, I will want to research this further. Thanks for the Posting.Please send an email to my email address to verify.I cannot read your email address well on the genforum page.
