I talked with my father Harold last night. He remembers your father well! He say's they all called him Uncle Pete. And he could play the violin like nobody else! His fingers would move so fast you couldn't see them go..."would about saw the fiddle in half"! He remembers your Grandfather William and his carpentry shop. "He was a typical quite and alittle gruff German man". "Don't touch my saws" he said to my father when he was a small boy, "but you can use the hammer". Your Uncle Vernon repaired cars behind your Grandfather's carpentry shop. He can't remember anything further back than your Grandfather. Do you know anymore about your Great Grandfather, and Great Great Grandfather? We all very excited here! I'm 43 now and have never known my ancestry. Even my Father was not aware of Anton Lapp. Anything you share would be greatly appreciated! Harold beleives your Uncle Roy's daughter was also researching the family tree. We're trying to find an address in Texas or Arizona. I'll post more as I find it.
