Vincenzo Rappa/Rapp (1871)

Postby Lisapeters65 » 26 Mar 2016, 16:29

I'm looking for information on the family of my Great Grandfather Vincenzo Rappa (Rapp).
He was born around 1871 in Italy, and died in 1909 in Meadville PA as James Rappa, (according to what I found on Ancestry.com.)
I know of his wife (Concetta Salvia/ aka Catherine Rapp, who lived in Meadville PA)
And his children:
1.Dominic Rapp who married Lillian and had a child Vincent),
2.Anthony (Tony) Rapp who married Verna Reitzel and had children James, Joseph and John.)
3.Benjamin who married Wanda and had children Marie, Norma, Vincent and Wanda.
4.Samuel who married both Evelyn and Margaret and had children Dorothy and Carol. 5.James.
But since I don't know who Vincent's patents or brothers and sisters were, I don't know any of those cousins of mine. I'm sure there must be lots of Rapps and others that I'm related to. But I need to figure this out first. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Marty, @adelfio , does this tagging work? How can I show this to my cousin @maddipa ? We definitely recognize that name Occhipinti, but we didn't know where it fit in. The records I have of my great grandmother Concetta Salvia (who we also found was Maria Concetta Salvia), her oldest son's last name was Occhipinti on the records/censuses, while all the other sons were Rappa's/Rapps.

Thanks so much Marty, my cousin is a member here. This is where I met her!!!!
This is so interesting. I wonder why Maria went by Maria Antonia and later Maria Concetta? The family tree that we have going already lists her parents, and her mother was a Grillo, so that matches what you found. I sent my cousin an email link to this.

Wow, you are amazing! Can you also figure out if Maria's husband Vincenzo Rappa had any brothers or sisters so I can look for their families so I can find more living cousins?
