Once Upon a Town 3 with John & Mary (POFF) RUPP family

Something about genealogical research brings out the Nancy Drew in me.  Gathering clues, testing theories and smashing expectations, tussling with Old Man Cantankerous to obtain the facts; this is the flesh and blood of great drama!

 

Unfortunately, (or luckily for my family), I've not yet stumbled into any ancestral mineshafts of reprehensible behavior, so there's not much to tell.  Plenty to show, though, as the pictures tell a thousand words.

 

Please contact me if you can identify any of these individuals.  If you know their stories, I am all ears!

 


These photos came from the John RUPP family, so perhaps these names yield a treasure:
