Hi Veronica: This may not be of much help to you, but my GGM sister married into a family with the surname Jaap. He was from Missouri according to censuses. They were married in Trinidad, CO and are buried at the Knights of Pythias cemtery there. If interested contact me directly at Willing to share what ever I may have with you. Margaret Clarke

Barney Japs married Nell Gilligan, b. 12/1884.
Apparently they were the parent of 8 children
according to the obit of their oldest unmarried
son, Lawrence b. 10/06/1906 MPLS. I have 3 other
children's names, all living.

Am interested in finding out when/where Nell
Gilligan Japs died.

I've tried to send this e-mail the third
time is a charm. (If you get three copies don't be sur-
My Dad and his sister Luella did a lot of research
in the thirties. My cousin Clifford Japs did more research
just recently (even went to Germany) so...we're pretty
sure this information is accurate.
Hope this has been helpful.
I'll look forward to hearing from you..(I'm 77 years young.)
Sincerely, Cousin Bernie.

My dad's real last name is Japs, his father died when he was young though, and he became a foster child taking the name Dressel. But he has a Geneology book for the Japs family tracing all the way back to Prussia. If you have anything you'd like me to look for in it I'd be happy to. I was wondering if you might've come across a family crest or coat of arms for the name Japs, because that's about the only thing that the geneology book doesn't have. If you've seen anything I would be extremely happy to know about it. Thanks.

This is not my direct line, but my mother's 1st cousin is 90 and a descendant. I send him whatever I dig up.

I have a Ferdinand H. Japs marrying Dena Anna Landwehr. I have no information on Ferdinand, but did find Dena in the 1920 census in California with her daughter Loretta.

Ferdinand and Dena had 4 children, Bernard Wheaton (1882-1944), Loretta (1896-1971), Claire (1890- ) and Laura (1896- ).

If you have further information regarding this family, I would appreciate receiving it.

I am seeking your help on learning something more about a F. A. Japs who lived in my home town. After reading and studying your postings on the Japs family and related families. I think I have figured out that F. A. Japs probably was born in Carver County, Minnesota and probably was a son of William D. Japs and that they were living there in 1880, however, I must tell you that I am guessing at all this. I have one piece of information stating or hinting that F. A. Japs may have been married to a women with the surname of Harting. Do you have any information on F. A. Japs? Do you know what he may have done for a living and when and where he died? I believe that his name was Frank A. Japs, by the way. RCB
