Adam Rupert, born circa 1775, married Hannah Shaver. Adam died before the 1861 census.
In 1830, Adam stated that he was a son of the original nominee, Old Adam Rupert, and that his brother, Francis, was the eldest son of his father.
Adam Rupert, the Loyalist who came to Osnabruck was probably either the son or the brother of this Franz Rupert. He had four children baptized in Mohawk Valley parish registers, but Adam and his wife had at least 6 sons and 3 daughters. In addition, a John Rupert and a George Rupert also appear in the Johnson papers and in parish registers of the Mohawk Valley. Like many families from Johnstown, who were tenants of Sir William Johnson, the Ruperts found themselves affected by the Revolution and when it was time to make choices., they usually chose Loyalty over Rebellion. Francis and Peter Rupert, aged 21 and 19, born in America, appear on the Roll of Captain Anderson’s company of KRRNY.2 They later appear on land records in Charlottenburg and Osnabruck Township.
