I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think my VanRiper line lived in Michigan and Pennsylvania. They definitely lived in Ohio, I've heard talk about New York and New Jersey. Since I now have my aunts' email addys, I can now write them and ask about my family tree. My aunt Sue has a ton of info. I shouldn't ask right away cause of my brother's passing, I'll ask when things settle down. If you want, then we can swap info, if that's alright with you.
