We are interested in Oppel's from Louisville Kentucky. My father is Wallace Oppel Sr. born in Louisville Kentuck. My grandfather was Charles Oppel and his was John Oppel all living in Louisville Kentucky around the 1940's. Any information appreciated. Wally Oppel

It is possible that my last name is really Oppel and not Opal. My parents had told me that my Grandfather had changed the name when we came her from Belguim. I know that my Grandfather had a Brother named Morris.

My Grandfather, John Baptist Oppel migrated to the USA (San Francisco)in 1903 from Mitterteich, Germany. The correct spelling for his name in Germany was Oppl but was changed due to difficulty in pronouncing the name. He had 6 brothers 1 sister. Only the 3 brothers came to the USA and were brewmasters. All 3 brothers remained in San Francisco where they lived until their deaths.
