I am trying to trace down several 'loose ends' in my ancestry, including the Shupes (Shoops) of Wythe Co., Virginia. In the early generations in America, I have Johannes Schupp (later Johan Schupp or John Shoop), born ca. 1740 reportedly in Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania, also who reportedly served under Casimir Pulaski in the American Revolution. He is claimed to have received land in what is now Wythe Co. due to his service, and died there (then Montgomery Co., VA) in 1812.
His wife's name is given variously as Anna Catherina Slemp or Catherina Slimp, and is believed to also have been born ca. 1740.
They appear to have been married ca. 1770 in Pennsylvania (their son Johan or John being born in March 1771 in Heidelberg, Lebanon Co., PA).
The dates involved for her birth, and the marriage of their son Peter to the daughter of Georg Friedrich Schlemp and Mary Metz, indicates that she was probably a sister (possibly a cousin ?) of Georg Friedrich Schlemp, and therefore a daughter of Georg-Simon Schlemp of Kandel, Pfalz-Bayern and his wife ANna-Margaretha Zangmeister.
Can you confirm or deny this based on the information you now have? There is a great deal of material on the descendants of John Schupp/Shupe and his wife Catherina, which I will gladly share. Any help on the Schlemp/Slemp end, and extending our knowledge of some additional cousins, will be greatly appreciated.
Your (presumed) cousin, John
