We are currently researching my great-great-grandparents, Emanuel RUPP and his wife Catherine SCOTT. They originally came from Franklin County, Pennsylvania in the early 1800s. They resettled in Zanesville, Ohio, then moved again to Muscatine, Iowa. From Iowa some of Emanuel's descendants moved to Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska.
Some other related surnames include BAKER, BARNARD, BAXTER, BELL, BENEDICT, BRILMAN, BURLETT, CAW, CURTIS, FARRINGTON, JOHNSON, KAIL, MORFORD, NYCE, PURCELL, SHEPHERD, SMITH, TOWNE and WATROUS.
The BAXTER family has links to the families of ADAMS, ARMS, CONE, DUTTON, GRANGER, GRIGGS, HATCH, LEAVITT, PARTRIDGE, RICHARDSON, SAWYER, SPRAGUE, STONE, WRIGHT.
From my mother's side of the family I have these surnames: BAKER, BOLLENDER, CAMPBELL, CARTWRIGHT, CHAPMAN, CHURCH, GLASIER, GRAHAM, LITTLE, MILLER, RUBENDALL, TINLEY, WALTHAM.
