Rupley Family Genealogy Forum
How are you coming on your RUPLEY/ WORMLEY information?? How long did 'Hartly' Wormley live?? Are you familiar with Johan Jacob RUBLI/ RUBLY/ RUBLEY/ RUPLEY who lived in Manor and/or neighboring Conestoga Twp., Lancaster CO, PA from circa 1749- 1786 then moved to Cumberland CO, PA where he died circa 1793? Johan Jacob had two wives and at least 17 children, one being a Margaret. RUBLY/RUPLEY family researches have come up with two different husbands for their Margaret RUPLEY - Mr Snyder and Adam Von Der Au(from the FRANK Home Page) I still say that this Rupley family who were the Swiss Mennonite family of RUBLI is still the best guess of links to who you are looking for. But the RUBLI name has about 15 variations of spelling, even in the Lancaster Lutheran and Episcopal church records of 1750+. All the names sound similar if sounded out phonetically. The Cumberland CO line seems to have settled with RUPLEY.
Let me know what you can add. I'm trying to connect my RIPLEY line to the RUPLEY line, and I'm getting very close, after family researchers have spent 50 years and more than four trips to Lancaster to find informantion.
