Elizabeth Rupp of Germany d 1874 m Henry Scheidt
Posted by: Heather Peters (ID *****2287) Date: September 29, 2008 at 13:54:55
  of 653

I am looking for my mother-in-law's great grandmother Elizabeth Rupp. I do not know where she was born but I know she spent her entire life in Germany and died at the age of 40 years. She married Major Henry Scheidt and gave birth to five children, Jacob who came to the USA in 1871 and is my mother-in-law's grandfather, Adam a railway engineer in Germany, Henry who operated a planing mill in New York, Catherine who is listed as living in Germany, and August who only lived to be nine years old.

I have some history coming forward based on information from my mother-in-law and also an excerpt from "History of Wyandotte County Kansas and It's People" published in 1911 by the Lewis Publishing Company.

Anyone who might have information would help me out greatly. I do know that Jacob Scheidt was born in Bavaria Germany but since his father Henry Scheidt was military, I do not know if the family was originally from there.
