I didn't find any information for August Rempel arriving in Baltimore 28
July 1891. However, I did find the following, which you may already have:

U.S. Federal Census for 1900 -- South Dakota, Lake County, Wayne Township
REMPEL, August, born August 1867, age 43 [sic]; Victoria, born 1863, age 37;
three children, two of whom are living; Amelia, 14; Edward, 11. They are
recorded as having arrived in the U.S. in 1896.

Looking further, I found an entry in the U.S. Border Crossings from Canada
for the August Rimpel [sic] family, including August, 33; Victoria, 30;
Emilie, 8; Eduard, 7; Marie, 3; Wilhelm, 1. Also, Friedrich Rimpel, 30;
Anna, 28; and Frederick Lewis Angloman Rimpel, 4 days old, born at sea on
about 12 May 1896. The infant's middle name was the name of the ship on
which he was born, the S.S. Angloman, Dominion Line, which departed
Liverpool, England, on 7 May 1896 and arrived at Port Levis, Quebec, Canada,
on 16 May 1896 at 11:30 p.m. The passengers were examined at 6:30 a.m. on 17
May 1896. The Rimpels/Rempels were listed as being from Russian Volhynia and
traveling to Madison, South Dakota. I found no other Germans from Russia on
this ship.

The middle name of the infant rings a bell in my mind. I believe I may have
extracted these passengers many years ago and submitted them for publication
in AHSGR's Clues.

Hope this helps
Best Wishes for success in your search
