It appears that your father would have been David Hartley ROPER (b 26 Mar 1915 - Columbus, Cherokee, KS, d Oct 1975 - Chetopa, Labette, KS), son of James Monroe ROPER (b 25 Feb 1872 - Perry, IL, d 7 Feb 1956 - Columbus, Cherokee, KS) and Amanda HARNED (b 3 Jan 1882 - South West City, MacDonald, MO, d 19 Jul 1967 - Columbus, Cherokee, KS). David Hartley ROPER had SSN 489-07-0367.
James Monroe ROPER and Amanda HARNED are both interred at Greenlawn Cemetery, Columbus, Cherokee County, Kansas.
The ROPER lineage for James Monroe ROPER is:
George Washington Roper (b ca 1787 - Rutherford, NC; d 8 Sept 1866 - Carriers Mills, Saline Co, IL)
James Madison ROPER (b 20 Nov 1832 - Jefferson, IL, d 24 May 1903 - Chetopa, Labette, KS)
George Washington ROPER (b 7 Sep 1852 - Carriers Mills, Saline, IL, d 3 May 1932 - Chetopa, Cherokee, KS)
James Monroe ROPER (b 25 Feb 1872 - Perry, IL, d 7 Feb 1956 - Columbus, Cherokee, KS)
I do NOT believe that the lineage for George Washington Roper (b ca 1787 - Rutherford, NC; d 8 Sept 1866 - Carriers Mills, Saline Co, IL) currently shown in the ROPER Family History Files at http://www.roperld.com
