|The Roper male-line
Y-chromosome project has yielded, with high probability, the defining
25-marker set for the combined southern (descended from the early Ropers in
Virginia) and northern (descended from the early Ropers in Massachusetts)
Ropers and, therefore, the set for their common Roper ancestor in England. The
Roper RY1 family in England:
|"No man is an Island, entire of it self; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee." -John Donne, 1624 - Meditation XVII|
|Ecclesiasticus 44: 1-10,13-14: Let us now praise famous people, our ancestors in their generations. The Lord gave them great glory, his majesty from the beginning. There were those who ruled kingdoms, and made a name for themselves by their courage; those who gave advice because they were intelligent; those who were prophets; those who led the people by their wisdom and knowledge; those who wrote music or poetry; rich people, living peacefully in their homes--all these were honored in their day, and were the pride of their times. Some of them have left behind a name, so that others praise them. But of others there is no memory; they died without anyone knowing them; but these also were godly people, whose good deeds have not been forgotten; their children will continue forever, and their glory will never be blotted out. Their bodies are buried in peace, but their name lives on generation after generation.|
