Cripe Kissin Cousins

The CRIPE surname in the USA is a convoluted one of numerous intermarriages of cousins. To that end, welcome to all Kissin Cousins; including the ULRICH, ULLERY, ULREY, MILLER, and MULLER cousins too.

Location: mostly Elkhart, INdiana, but also PA, OH, MD, IL, and of course Germany

I am related to the Cripes by marriage.

Hello to all. I'm a Cripe descendent. My grandmother was a Cripe. In fact, her parents and siblings are in the picture attached to this group above. She's in the second row ( her name is Dorothy) next to my grandpa Eli. Dorothy was the youngest of 11 children and is left off of most Cripe family trees, because she was born well after them (her closest sibling is 9 years older) and because she was born in North Dakota while all the rest were born in Indiana. Based on my grandfather's marriage to her, this dates the above picture to after 1927, but probably not much later than 1927.

I became fascinated by the interbreeding of the Cripe family which is uttlerly rampant. I'm actually related to Jacob Greib's FATHER thru two different lines (I'm related to Jacob's sister thru the ULRICH side also). Then when I saw Alice Marie Beard's published tree, it became oh so obvious that my cousins did this all the time: first cousins marrying, second cousins marrying, and so on. So I decided to start an all-surname study of the CRIPE family in the USA. I started with the first all-name census of 1850, went backward to 1830, and so far, I've gone up to 1900 census, which I'm working on now. There are a few CRIPES that I can't identify where they fit in, so if you have more information, I surely want to talk to you. Meanwhile I'll continue plugging away at this nice little jigsaw puzzle of a family tree. Eventually, I'll make my results available to the public.
