Hi Kathryn,
I am not sure this is the right Michael reap as there seems to be more than a few Reap familys . We are from John Reap ,Avoca Pa. I have two family historys and have not checked out the information.One od the historys says: The Scranton Reaps , Michael had eleven children and lived on Monroe Ave. Scranton.The children named are, Lucy, Harry a prist, Mary, Helen, William, Joseph, Florance, John, Francis, Duggan and Clement who married and lived in Honesdale Pa. There was also a Martin Reap who had two children Mary and Thomas. The third brother was our John Reap who married Maria Grimes and lived in Avoca. Martin also lived in Avoca.
The Reaps came from County Mayo Ireland and lived in a village called Knockegan near the town of Ballina.Their father was named Thomas .
This is where I really get messed up. My folks have three different names for the wife of Thomas one says Briget Malone ,one says Briget Duggan and the third says Mary Dougherty sooooooo. Then if thats not enough they say Michael wife was Sarah Callahan.
If any of this rings a bell please let me know.
