Hi Mike,
My name is Bill Amann. I am descended from a John Rupert, originally of Columbiana Co, contemprary of Eve Rupert. I have information from a Don Rupert who still lives in Columbiana Co, which shows John and Eve as siblings. Don's information shows their father to be Adam Rupert of Columbiana Co who had married a Margaret Gotzen (Goetz).
I do have a photocopy of Adam's will which mentions John, but does not mention Eve, which I must say is suspect if they are siblings.
My meager attempt to put together the puzzle of Adam's siblings based on some cemetery evidence, proximity of graves and some conjecture is that John Rupert, married to Barbara was possibly Adam's brother. They had a son Jacob. Do you have some evidence for John and Barbara being Eve's parents?
Perhaps between the two of us we can share information and try to figure out where Eve and John fit into all of this. Perhaps we can fill in the blanks for each other.
