The Kirchenbuch of Eschenrod, near Scotten, Hessen, Germany has that our Elisabeth RUPPEL who came to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA about 1841married to Johannes BEPLER, a shoemacher, formerly of Kinzenbach, Hessen, was geboren in Eschenrod.
Now, Elizabeth RUPPEL was the daughter of Johannes Ruppel b 27 May 1781 and Anna Maria Christin b16 Jan 1784.
The father of Anna Maria was a Johann Peter CHRIST b Oct 1692.J. Peter married dCatharina SCHARMANNIN.All were from Eschenrod Evangelical Church.
Do you know more about the ancestry or history of this Johann PETER CHRIST?Do you know if any of the other CHRIST family came to Pittsburgh, PA?I have not found an immigration or emmigration record for Elizabeth RUPPEL or her parents.
