Re: Repps from the Palouse Country, Washington State

In Reply to: Repps from the Palouse Country, Washington State by Terry Heck of 209

I have Repps in the Palouse area of Washington State that came from Jagodnaja Poljana. Johannes Repp came with his family in 1900 to Endicott Washington. There is a book that my mother has called "Pilgrims on the Earth" by Richard D. Scheuerman on the Germans from Russia that went to the Colfax/Endicott area. Although my Repps were later arrivals to the area, the first settlers to this area were other Repps (etc.) that left Jagodnaja Poljana in 1875 and settle in central Kansas and eventually to Portland and on to Endicott (Palouse area) in 1882. I believe my Repps were close relations to these Repps because my Johannes Repp moved next to one of the "original" settler Repps and lived there until the last month of his life when he left and went to Calgary, Canada by some of his children. I am still trying to connect the relationships of the Repps in this area. It is difficult because so many of them have the same first names. If I have it right, Jagodnaja Poljana is by the Volga River about 40 miles northwest of Saratov in Saratov Province area of Russia. If I can be of any further help please contact me. Jeanne Helms
