This message is years old but will try. I am reseaching the last name Prielipp in Michigan, Lenawee Co., area right now. There is a hole family of them from Germany, just trying to fit them all together. The census doesn't help because the census taker didn't know how to spell and went by how the name sounded. But of course that is the same with all the census and names. If you get this please answer. I think all Prielipp's in America are related closely, they all seem to come from the same place or general area.
