Notes:
They lived along the Lick Fork, Gasconade River between Nancy Newton Cem. and #5 Cemetery N.-NW of Mansfield. It is believed that John Roper, Sr. married most of his children. He was a Farmer, Miller, Preacher-M/E Church.
The Ropers have about Turners of Turners, MO in Greene Co.
Many census records for MO, AR, MS, TX, OK.
Looking through all my notes would take a lot more room.

To all those "Thanks" and "Blessings" C.M. Wright.
