I know that there were other Rasp families in the area yours came from. My Conrad Rasp who was born in 1812 in Heuchelheim and was a brother to my ggrandfather George born in 1819, along with their brother Wilhelm born in 1815 and Susanna born in 1822 all came to Meigs Co. in Ohio probably around the late 1840's. Their parents were Maria Magdalena Blanck and Philipp Rasp both born in Heuchelheim. Then Philipp was one of the children of the Johann Wilhelm Rasp from Offstein and Katharina Margaretha Schreiber.
Philipp and Maria Magdalena both died in Heuchelheim, Philipp in 1884 and Maria Magdalena in 1881. They were married in 1804. There may not be any connection. What I would like to ask you is whether the spelling of Raspe is the same as Rasp. I was wondering if the Rasp are descended from the Henry Raspe who was a pretender as the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in the 1300's.
My best to you;
