Ropesville, Texas

On our way to New Mexico, we stopped in the roaring metropolis of Ropesville, TX, current population 450, where Dan’s grandfather was raised. For such a tiny dot on the map, it’s funny that this is the second time I’ve visited; the first time with my mother-in-law Cheryl when we drove through but couldn’t find the cemetery. With a little guidance from Cheryl and Google maps to assist, we found the cemetery this time and Dan got to see the gravestones of his family. From the streets of Manhattan to the fields of Texas, Cheryl has given us some fun genealogy-tracking trips along the way.
