Hi Jan,
Unless your reply contained a typo, be careful. It appears in this message that you may have combined the names of two wives. The two correct couples are:
1. Leonard Reep and wife Barbara (last name unknown).
2. Isaac Reep (Sr.) and wife (first name unknown) Bash. Not (Barbara) Bash (unless you know a detail we don't have.)

The two family groups showing children which you requested are:
1. Jacob Reep and first wife Sarah Courtright (spelling has varied with Courtright/Cortright/Cartright).
i. An unidentified daughter
ii. Mary Reep (b. ca. 1820-d. unknown) m. to James McLane (some interpretations of the orginal handwriting have used McEwin (et. al)
iii. John Reep (b. 30 Nov 1820-d. 21 Jan 1908) m. Sarah Ann Beal on 24 Aug 1843
2. Jacob Reep and second wife Sarah Allison
i. Rebecca Ann Reep (b. ? - d. ?) m. to William Cumberland Grist on 30 Nov 1847
ii. Minerva Jane Reep (b. 07 Jan 1830-d. 06 May 1918) m. Henry Harrison Woodsworth on l6 May 1850
iii. Sarah Reep (b. ca. 1835-d. ?) m. Robert Young
iv. Charles Reep (b. ca. 1827 - d. ?) no details
v. Martha A. Reep (b. ca. 1837 - d. ? in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH)
vi. Abagail Felecia Reep (b. 23 Jun 1842 - d. 14 Feb 1930 in Independence, Montgomery County, KS) (Blind the last 15 years of her life and never married).

In my last message, I made a mistake on the number of children for the second marriage. There were only six, not seven.
The Allison Family: There is a small library with a monument to Pres. McKinley in front in Niles, Ohio. At one time, they had a single sheet ancestor type chart for the Allison Family, but that was about all. I have a copy of that chart and would be glad to send you a copy of that plus some other items, but much of the material is still boxed from the move. If you will send me your mailing address to my e-mail address (, I will send you a package that may prove helpful as soon as I can get to the material.
At one time we had an excellent researcher (now deceased) who had done work back in the 1930s (she was a granddaughter of Jacob Reep) and she gave the Reep Family Association through her will a number of items that relate to the McKinley/Allison/Reep families (including some photographs).
There is a good portrait style photo of Nancy Allison McKinley and one set of parents (without looking, I don't remember whether the parent photos were Allisons or McKinleys.
Hope this helps. Jim Reep
