Riepes from Baltimore, Maryland
Frustrated with with my RIEPE research, I requested a RIEPE forum - success!!
I am part of the RIEPE family from Baltimore, Maryland. We have been unable to extend our research beyond MD - all of the Baltimore RIEPEs are related, but we are trying to find connections to the rest of the RIEPEs in the country.
Here's our line ...
Unknown Male RIEPE (born about 1862 in Baltimore area) married unknown Female. They had at least 1 child: Harry Urias RIEPE, Sr., born in Baltimore area ABT 1880.
Harry Sr. married Alice NORTH of the Eastern Shore of Maryland and had the following 4 children, all born in Baltimore:
Harry Urias RIEPE, Jr. b. 3/21/1897
Joseph Creighton RIEPE b. 4/17/1899
James Holiday RIEPE b. 12/24/1900
Jane Alice RIEPE b. ABT 1903
Ruth RIEPE b. ABT 1906
Joseph Creighton RIEPE was my grandfather.I have further info on all these RIEPEs - death dates, burials, marriages, children, grandchildren, ggchildren etc.
We are looking for:
Harry Urias RIEPE Sr.'s parents, wife, and possible siblings. Supposedly he was related to the RIEPES in the midwest part of the country - perhaps the rest of his family settled there and he either remained or returned to Maryland.
Since there are not very many RIEPEs around (at least compared to some surnames!!), I am interested in establishing a nationwide database of the family. I am working with a man named Dick Weber who is responsible for a simialr databasefor the SPRAGUE family - you may check out this extensive project at http://www.sprague-database.org/http://www.sprague-database.org/. I would like to model a RIEPE database off Dick's Sprague database. If you are a RIEPE or have a RIEPE connection in your family and would be interested in contributing to such a database, please contact me directly - firstname.lastname@example.org.
ANY possible information anyone has that would help establish a connection to us Maryland RIEPEs would be GREATLY appreciated. Will share all info I have.
