This is a computerized version of the book by Sophronia McCroskey in 1945. I have added more information and corrections. Please contact me if you would like to add more information. I am not a descendant of these Stolps. My great grandfather, August Stolp, came to Aurora in 1865 from Rehe, Emmerichenhain Parish, Nassau, Germany. The book states that there is no connection between the two different Stolps, but I am sure there is in the records not kept circa 1700.
