Rupp, Leiker, Goetz, Riedel and other names connected to Rush County, KS
Hello, I have in my possession several old yellowed sheets of paper with names, dates and places. These papers were in my grand aunt Gertrude Hudson Rupp's belongings when she passed away in 1977.It seems these papers were written around 1959. They do not pertain to my family at all and I would like to dispose of the papers, however, I thought I'd write down what is written here. I can save the papers for a brief time, if someone in the Rupp/Goetz family wants them. They would have to email me and then send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to my mailing address and I will send the originals. If no one claims them by the end of September 2012, I will destroy them, but the info will remain here on this site.I have left off info about people who are probably still alive.
