Notes
a. Note:   Brian Ruppe wrote: "The history of Martin Roop, his family and his travels is taken from an unpublished "Ruppe History" in the possession of my brother, Alan Ruppe, and was assembled around 1930. The author is unknown but may have been our grandfather, Hustler Hoyle Ruppe. The history seems to be a collection of verbal stories collected from family members. Much of the information in this history has been verified through census records and other genealogical data."
