Bible Records for this ROPER Family
Posted by: William Alexander Roper (ID *****0344) Date: December 16, 2012 at 15:52:59
In Reply to: Re: 1850 Census Record for Tabitha ROPER (b abt 1841) by Sue Davis of 1882

Can you please post a transcription of the extant Bible records or advise us WHERE such a COPY or transcription of this Bible can be found?

ROPER genealogy is no almost totally and hopelessly awash in various fraudulent representations about family connections, lineages and INVENTED DATA to suit preconceived speculation, conjecture or fiction about various families.

Both posted genealogies and the so-called ROPER Family History files maintained by one leading ROPER genealogist are almost completely untrustworthy. Almost every time someone contacts me for assistance, they begin with a variety of horribly flawed constructions and assumptions based upon this fraudulent data.

It would be helpful to see the additional private SOURCE DATA that supports various constructions. I do not at all doubt the existence of Bible records to support Telitha ROPER's name. In my view, the spelling in a marriage record is inherently going to be more trustworthy than what appears in a single Census enumeration, even without a Bible record. But if there are extant Bible records which can help to correctly connect various generations, this would be very helpful for ALL to know.


Although this is NOT my branch of the family, hopefully by posting some additional genealogical details, we can smoke out some others who are interested in this branch.
