Comments: It is Spring! Be Very, Very Cautious

Hey Ben! Spring greetings from another Kepple - and an Andreas descendant who was very surprised to see some dialog on the internet between her 6th and 7th great-grandfathers! (Exact No. of greats may not be just right but the surprise is). I suspect that there are a far greater number of way of thinking about things - and doing things - that are directly attributable to our ancestors than we consciously realize. I've met a number of Kepple cousins who seem to take similar pathways and methods without ever being aware of what their cousins did. Anyway, I live on Long Island for part of the year and in Western PA for part and have been exploring the genealogical Kepple connections for several years - and have met some interesting - and, of course, genetically similar people. I, too, am intrigued about what happened to Johannes and Walpurg and find myself being careful about with whom I share my knowledge of healing herbs (just one possibility). I'd love to hear from you and learn more about your Kepple connection. I'm Johannes-Hans Peter I-Clemenz-Andreas-Andrew-George-Cyrus Jeremiah-Isaac Newton-Robert Winfield-Robert Clair. If you are Andreas, I have what may be some very interesting Western PA info for you. Let me know - in the meantime, Happy Spring! R.
