Out of Mother Europa

Whether "we" ended up in Virginia or Pennsylvania is not important considering "we" are in all 50 states now. The important thing is that the boys had the foresight to leave messy Europe (escaping poverty is a great incentive). Europe now nice place to visit , but would not want to live there. Look at a map , many present day Stepps live in an area (going from west to east ) in Belgium and north France (around Lille) and into Germany ( in Saarland und Rhineland Palatinate). These two areas of Germany are next to Belgium and Luxembourg. Name Stap/Stapp/van der Stap found in Netherlands. All of these areas border each other. Like going on I-81 from Harrisburg, Pa. to Wincester, Va.
