Surnames: OTT, ROTH, HOPPER,
You have a good idea, Susan. My "La Crosse OTT's" arrived in the La Crosse area about 1900 give or take a few years, from southern Indiana. John OTT was the first to arrive, and he married Hester WENZEL of Melrose, in Jackson Co. I believe that they continued to live in Jackson Co. My grandparents, William and Susie (HOPPER) OTT arrived in or about 1902 from Floyd Co., IN. They had ten children that reached adulthood: Cobert, Mervin ("Mernie", my father), Chester ("Chet"), Earl Shelby ("Eb"), Martha, Helen, Alberta, Wilbur "Dutch", Irene, and Cyril ("Billy" or "Harpo"). Some of the associated families who were spouses include DOERRE, NOOYEN, WALZ, VERSE, McGINNIS, KING, ZERNECKE, SCHLIGHT, GARDNER, HOPPERSTAD, and STUPKA.

William OTT's mother was Anna Maria ROTH. After she married Ferdinand OTT in Indiana, the rest of her family migrated to La Crosse and Buffalo Counties, arriving there in the 1850s and 60s. Descendants of the brothers John, Andrew, and Martin ROTH make up this family.

For those who think that there may be a connection, I would invite you to visit my website at:
