I am a descendent of the Rupley family. I believe that I gave three sources of information in my original message. You will, of course want to check on their authenticity: J.J. Rupley's will was proved 16 Mar 1793; Dorothea's babtism record should be at Trinity Lutheran in Lancaster; Maria was born 29 Sep 1746, married J.J. Rupley 20 Nov 1765 in St. James Episcopal Church in Lancaster and died 28 Nov 1794. Some of this information can be found in the PA archives as well as the mentioned church records. As with all geneology records there is of course a shadow of speculation, especially if the records have been taken off the internet or through unquestioned family information. Since all of the male members of the Rupley family tended to give their sons and daughters the same names of their fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers and cousins it is at times difficult to trace who belongs to whom.

I hope this provides some more places for you to check information.
