My wife's great-great-grandfather was Johann Wilhelm Rapp born 1816 in Habitzheim, and came to Baltimore about 1840. His grandfather was Johann Heinrich Rapp III born 1759 in Habitzheim. I obtained this information from LDS microfilms available from my local Family History Center. These Rapps may now be available by searching on

I have the translation of a letter to Johann Wilhelm from his father dated 1842, plus lots of Rapp family history from Baltimore and from Thomasville, NC.

How are you related to the Rapps of Habitzheim?

I'll e-mail you directly.
