Trying to determine who the ancestors were of Milton Roop. Milton died in Coldwater, Branch Co. Michigan in 1981 & his wife Veo died in Arizona in 1993, but they were living in Washington Twp. Lucas Co. OH in 1930. I suspect that Alvin L. & Ellen Roop could be his parents. Although Alvin's family is enumerated in Bentley, Gadwin Co. MI in the 1930 census, his father was born in Ohio, where another Alvin Roop (probably his father) was enumerated in the 1850 census. Could they be descendants of Frederick Roop/Elizabeth Abbott & if so from which of their 13 children? Any help appreciated. Our site is tracing all of the descendants of the Roop/Abbott union.

This is probably the son Alvin above, but the Ellen is too young to be the mother above. Not sure yet, how this Ellen Roop is related...if she is. Notice that she did die in the same Branch Co. as Milton, but in Quincy, rather than Coldwater. So she could even have been his wife. The age range does fit, since Milton was b-1905.
