25 years ago Z.Hazel Whitley Yates of Greenfield, MO and Mae Hughes of Stockton, MO visited Tinkling Springs Presbyterian Church, Fishersville, VA searching for information about America Rapp, of Botetourt or Rockbridge County, VA. Mrs. Hughes' son-in-law was William T. Reid, son of Albert P. and Martha Shorter Reid, and grandson of America Rapp and William Reid. I knew America Rapp Reid was a sister of my grandmother, Martha Rapp Alphin, and that America had lived in Missouri, but that was all I could recall. In the intervening years I have learned more about my Rapps, Mathias Rapp and Mary Saville and their 7 daughters and 3 sons. America was born in 1842. If anyone is still around who is interested in this family, I will be happy to share the info. I have. E--mail me or write to Margaret, 1841 Westminster Rd., Waynesboro, VA 22980.
