Amy, I have no information for you but a thought occured to me which I will share. The world has sure changed since the 1950s and it is possible that the Pape family moved on to other friendly English speaking countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada and England, as the need arose. Do you ever try posting similar messages on the genealogy sites of these countries? It's the "needle in the haystack" approach but if one is involved in genealogy at all every avenue is worth a try. Best of luck.
