My husbands gr-gr grandfather, Obadiah Sprowls, had a daughter Florence E.Sprowls,b. abt 1885 Bentleyville,Washington Co.,Pa. and she married Robert A. Roupe, b. about 1880 and at time of their marriage Sept. 19, 1906, Robert (Bert) lived in Eighty-Four,Washington Co.,Pa. Florence E. went by Elizabeth when married, but I believe in the 1910 Pa. miracode she was listed as Florence.
I find a Robert Rupp in Philadelphia, ed. 0733, age 32 b. Pa., wife Florence age 24, son Robert Jr. age 6 and son Edward, no age listed. In 1920 census I find Robert Rupp in Philadelphia, ed. #1026, age 40 (or 42), wife Florence age 35, son Robert Jr. age 15, son Edward age 10 and son Norman age 4 1/2. In 1930, still in Philadelphia, dist. 897, Robert age 52, Florence age 44, son Edward age 20, Norman age 14, and dau. Bertha age 9.
Am searching for descendants of this family and have loads of Sprowls data to share.
Are they possibly related to the NJ Rupp families?
