Where do I come from?

My name is Mary Ropp. I don't know much of my family back ground. I have heard of the "von Ropp" theory originating back to Germany, and my mother once mentioned a German spy, or something... ANYhow, my grandfather was Henry Edwin Ropp, and i believe that he was from Mississippi. He married Mary Sloan of Worthington, Indiana. They had too children, Celia Ropp and David Edwin Ropp, my father. My grandfather passed away in 1987. My grandmother is still alive today (90) but we never bring up my grandfather.

If anyone can give me some clues i would be very thankful.

Mary Ropp
