I am researching the Rupp family. Maybe your family came from Switzerland not Germany as we know it. Mine did. Germany was even listed on their passport not Switzerland. I a looking for Katharina Barbara Rupp, b. abt. 1764, Vechigan, Bern, Switzerland, d. July 5, 1820; m. Aug. 20, 1784, Koniz, Switzerland, b. abt. 1762, Koniz, Bern, Switzerland, d. Apr. 29, 1818, Koniz, Bern, Switzerland. My gt. grandfather worked for the Richard Hartmann Co. that made machines for weaving or knitting.
