Hello Lape Family Members!! I've been trying to track down the Parents/Family members of my Paternal Grandfather, George L. Rupert. I have a recordation of his marriage license to Etha Linda Stoner, his second Wife (actually his last name was spelled "Ruphert", and Etha's was spelled, "Edith")on file with the Chester County (Pa.) Archives and Record Services. According to this record, George's middle name was "Lape". The marriage took place on 10-20-1911, in Oxford, Pa. DOB given for George was 7-4-1885. I also have a military registration with his info on, his DOB being 7-4-1882, middle name looks like Lape/Lafe, but I'm going for Lape, to see if I can find a connection. In a 1930 Cecil County, Md. FC, it was stated George and his Parents were born in Ohio, and he was "first" married at age 18, ruling out Wives #2 and #3. His third Wife was my Grandmother, Emma Simpers. Hoping someone can help, because I've been coming up blank!! Thanks!!!
