Regarding this John George SCHUPP (b. 04 AUG 1759), he was actually John George III. His father was John George SHUPP Jr. (my ancestor) and his grandfather John George SCHUPP Sr. who married a woman named Barbara. The father and grandfather immigrated in 1739 aboard the ship Loyal Judith to Philadelphia from Germany. J.G. Schupp Sr was born 04 OCT 1705 in Merzweiler, Germany, which is now known as Mertzwiller, France. Further information on this line can be found on my website.
