I am trying to find the Frank Bopp family that once lived in or near Crawford, Delta Co. Colo. The year of about 1897, Frank and Mary (?) Bopp had a daughter born named Clara, born about 1897. I believe Frank Bopp to have been the son of John Henry Bopp and Mary Reuinker Bopp. Frank was born to them here in Jackson Co. Garden Valley, Wis. about 1866. He is listed in family papers as living in Delta Co. Colo. in about the year of 1895 and agin mentioned as living there in about 1924. Clara Bopp. the daughter was married in Delta,Colo. in 1916 to James D. Harding. They had at least 3 Children and then she married Logan Wood in 1929, Delta, Colo. She married third to Harry A. Davenport in 1954 in Montrose ,Colo. My main interest in this Bopp family is to find out if Frank was the son of our Great, Great, Grandfather, John Henry Bopp. I believe Frank was at one time living with an older half-brother in or near Delta Co. Colo named Henry Bopp who was a son also of John Henry Bopp. This Bopp family first came to this country in 1836 from Hesse, Darmstadt,Germany. It was large family and first settled in Maryland before moving on to Missouri. They then moved to Galena, Jo Davies Co. Ill. In Galena, the mother of 7 of the children died in 1855. John Henry then married again in 1860 and came to Jackson Co. Wis. Here in jackson Co, he raised another family of 4 children by his second wife. The first wife was called Maria and his second wife was called Mary. I have no last name for the first wife,but know that she died young. His second wife also born in Germany was much younger and her last name was Reuinker. The first wife is buried in Galena "old city" cem. The second wife is buried here in Jackson Co. Wis. John Henry Bopp, is buried in Polk co. Wis. He was born 1811, in Germany and died here in Wis in 1895.
Any one who might have information on either Frank Bopp or Henry Bopp of the state of Colo., please kindly help me out with my search. I am willing to exchange any and all data on my Bopp Family. email@example.com Vernon C. Bowen Alma Center, Wis. PO Box 72, 54611-0072
