My grandfather, Jesse Watson Repp, was born August 25, 1894 in Pennsylvania. His mother's maiden name was HOLZHAPPLE. He died in California on September 19, 1955. He was a COMMANDER USNR. He and my grandmother, Helen Lencofsky Repp, were divorced some time after my mother (Helen Grace)
and her sister (Betty Jane) were born (in Latrobe, PA. 1916 and 1918). I suspect they were divorced in Pennsylvania, but I'm not positive. Apparently he was in the Navy at the time they were married.
Jesse Watson Repp remarried, had two sons and lived in Los Gatos California until his death.
The only other thing I know is, his brother was Edward Earl Repp. Uncle Ted wrote Science Fiction for pulp novels, Western novels and wrote screen plays for "B" westerns.
My mother once told me if your name was Repp, you were somehow distantly related. I'm not sure I believe that, but the number of posts on this list leads me to believe there aren't many out there.
