Re: Holzapfel in Philadelphia, PA
I think that I have a Wholesopple in my family tree. Since the spellings vary considerably:
Holzapfel...Holsopple...Wholesopple, I was wondering if it might be a possible fit.
Do you have a Henry Shock marrying a Mary Wholesopple any where in your family tree?
This would be about 1810 +/- 5 years.
Info seems to indicate that both Henry and Mary were born in Greenbrier Co.Va. , but one of Henry's parents was born in Manor Pa. (Esther Bauman).
Maybe Mary Wholespopple's parents were from Pa. and then later moved to Va.
Thought it was worth an inquirey.
