Rippen family from Nebraska/Kansas area

My granddad was Herman Rippen, born in O'Neil, Nebraska 4 Dec., 1889. His parent's names were Eilert (Eylert) and Meta and I believe they came from Germany. Herman had at least one brother (Frederick) and three or more sisters (Louise, Maggie and Lena). They were all living in Kansas at the time of their deaths.

The story goes that while living in Nebraska Meta passed away and Eilert couldn't take the loneliness so became an alcoholic. Herman moved to Washington County, Idaho, before 1926 and lived there until his death in 1961.

If any of this sounds familiar to anyone I'd appreciate hearing! :o)
