The Lepant Family of Nebraska Updated July 15, 2001
About Our Family Research
I began researching my family history in 1989 in preparation for a family reunion. I started with my father's family and looked for the surnames of: LEPANT, RICH, EDWARDS, and SHORB. In the following years, I have researched the names on my mother's side: PARKER, ARMAGOST, GEORGE, JAMES, HECKMAN, AND BOBB. The following is a brief outline: LEPANT - or 'Lepanto'. My great-grandparents immigrated from Sicily. RICH - my great-great-grandparents immigrated from Prussia. EDWARDS - my great-grandmother was from Cleveland, Ohio. SHORB - my great-great-grandmother was from Canton, Ohio. PARKER - I already have a lot of information on this line. My family immigrated from England in the 1600's. ARMAGOST - I have quite a bit of information on this family. My ancestors came from Pennsylvania. GEORGE - My great-great-grandparents immigrated from Wales. I would like to find more information on this line. My great-grandmother's maiden name was JAMES. HECKMAN - I am looking for more information on this name. My family came to Nebraska from Illinois. BOBB - This family also came from Illinois, and I am currently trying to find more information on them. If anyone has any information on any of these names, I would appreciate the help you could give me...........Thanks!
