One of Jesse Mims Roper's daughters married into my son-in-law's family. [he is not descended from her, but from a son of Henry Wilhelm's from his first marriage]. Her name was Catherine Roper, and she married Henry Wilhelm in 1852 and lived in Arrow Rock for 50 years. Her sister, Martha Roper Roe lived with them much of that time taking care of Catherine's two daughters, as Catherine had some mental issues after having typhoid and ended up in the Lunatic Asylum in the 1860 census. I notice Jesse Roper was listed as insane in the 1850 census, and was living next door to his son William Roper. I don't really need any information on the family. Just wanted to add to the Roper family history. Where is Catherine Williams Roper buried?
