I am trying to locate the brother of my grandfather- Frank Leslie Ropp. He had a brother named Jesse and two sisters Mary and Ethel. Their parents were James Ropp and Emma Borem. James was died in a carpentry accident in 1890 .. and their mother Emma was killed around or after 1893, when an icehouse collapsed and killed her.. thus leaving the four children orphaned. These two events happened in or near Hammond, Indiana. If you have any names within your family files that would correspond with those above, I would greatly appreciate corresponding with you in regards to them. Jesse was to have married Blanche Culbert and I know of at least children they had .. Lyle andJane. Thank you!
