Johannes Trupp, born 26 November 1752, was the son of Johann Heinrich Trupp from Langsdorf and Anna Catharina Bemmersheim. Johann Heinrich Trupp died in Wohnbach, Germany. His widow and his only surviving child, Johannes, went to Russia, arriving from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Reders.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Frank. The Oranienbaum passenger list records that the Trupp family came from the German region of Laubach.
This family is traced to Johannes Tropp born about 1679, and Anna Elisabeth Pauli of Langsdorf, Germany.
