Reeb Family Genealogy Forum
James Rapp I can certainly give you the lineage of George Washington Reeb aka Rape back to his ancestor Heinrich Reeb baptized in the year of 1599 in the village of Herbitzheim which is only a short distance from the village of Keskastel where your immigrant ancestor Johann Theobald Reeb was born in 1769, married in 1793 to Sophia Catharina, a daughter of Heinrich Wilhelm Goehring, and in 1803 the Reeb and Goehring families (at least Theobald family) left Keskastel and came to America through the port of Baltimore where Mr. Goehring gave Sophia Catharina Reeb her heritage from him according to his last will and testament, and the families moved on to Butler County area where Mr. Goehring commanded similar respect to that which he had gained from the people in Keskastel as the Lutheran School Master and eventually served in a special office which performed the duties of a Mayor after being appointed to that position by the newly established French Government.
If you want me to I will mail you a copy of your ancestor's lineage providing you send me an e-mail providing a mailing address. I can not send the lineage through e-mail as experience has taught me that I can no longer afford to put my data on the computer hooked up to the internet so I use a separate pc for the genealogy TMG program. However, I would like to hear some more about your own immediate family history...such as who was your father and grandfather?
