My first posting. My maiden name is Yaples with the "s" on the end. I have recently traced my family tree using Doris Geist"s book and family knowledge. I had to find the missing link between Doris' book and what the family knew. I found it and can now say that I'm defininly descended from Philip Henry Jappel/Jabel/Yaple and his 2nd wife Susanna Vesqueau thru their son Jacob and his son Peter and Peter's son Elbert. This is were Doris left off. Elbert's entries in her book look almost like it was a last minute find before finishing the book. The missing link was between Elbert and one of his son's who was not listed in Doris' book. She was missing several of Elbert's children. Using census record's I was able to find Elbert's son Franklin (Frank) who married Lucinda Ellison and she is the lady who added the "s" to my branch of the family's last name. From there the rest of the family line was known to us.
My interest now is back in those census records were I found most of Elbert's missing children. Missing from Doris' book are Franklin E.(Frank), Amos S.,Lydia, Emmett J. and Emma. Emmett J. and Emma have the same birth date and knowing the Yaple family regularly has twins I first considered they were twins, but they don't show up on the Fed. census together ever. I know that Frank and Amos show up living with a different family on one census, speculation is that the other family was caring for them at a time that Lydia was born who never shows up on census records because she passed away 6 months after birth. I have searched the census records and find Emma only once, that same year I cannot find Emmett. I do find him every census after that and that he married, but I never find Emma again. I begining to think the census made a mistake and that Emma was acutally Emmett.
If anyone might have an answer I would be interested in hearing it.
