My mother's maiden name was Propes. My great grandfather was Morgan Propes. I can find very little about any of his people. I was told that the family originally came from West Virginia. When I look in old deed books there are several spellings of the names, mostly Propst. I think maybe my gr-gr grandfather may have been John and his wife was Sarah. If you have any information of the Propst that moved to West Augusta, Augusta County, Virginia I'd be very grateful to know it.

Thank you,
Marlene Hatter

What type of information are you looking for. Heinrich and his wife was witness to my GGGrandfather baptism. I will share any of the information that I have so far with you. Which book to you have on Pendleton County? I could email you a gedcom file of the Propst that I do have which is way to many to count. The earliest Propst I have is Johannes born abt 1620 in Feuchtwangen Bavaria Germany his son Hans Michael born bef 1659 in Bonninheim, Wurttembert Germany married Agatha Plintzing born before 1650 in Schwab Hahl, Bavaria Germany this couple had five children when Agatha died before 1692 in Bonnigheim, Wurttembert Germany. After her death Hans married Anna Margaret Mayer (born bef 1675) August 1692 and had one other child. I also have picture of various graves had the Propst Church Cemetery in Pendleton which would take me a while to get to you I still need to label them all. On going for the last 11/2 yrs. So let me know what you would like and I will try to get it out to you as soon as I can.

PS. My GGGGrandparents were Henry and Maria Eva Propst Huffman.

Hi Dianna,
I'm wondering if you have the info on decendants of Morgan Propst? If not please e-mail me, I am a direct descendant of Morgan. He was my Great-Grandfather.
His parents were Jacob Propst & Jane Vint, from Pendelton County, WVa. From there I have a gap. His father is listed as Adam? Propst. I'm wondering what the (?) means? And was Adam his father?
Thanks, Gayle McGarry
