Robert Elvin Hopper
« on: Tuesday 09 June 20 09:30 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for family members of Robert Elvin Hopper born 1921 in Ohio and died 1994 in Florida.  He married a Mildred Eileen ? but can't find record of a marriage or her surname. He is the son of John Hutchinson Hopper born 1891 in England and died 1956 in Ohio.

Hi

He would probably have married in the 1940's so any children could still be alive.  Rootschat has a no living persons policy so any details of living family members cannot be given here

There is a tree on Ancestry showing his wife as Mildred Eileen Fay  Born 2.2.1924 Canton Ohio - parents Lewis Ellsworth Fay & Audella Isler.   Mildred died 20.3.1999 Apopka Florida

Thanks for the information about Mildred.  I'm also looking for Robert's sister Margaret born 1923  but can't find a marriage for her.

and re him
search for him at familysearch and you will get his children's first names, and the married name of a daughter:

it is a free site, but you need to set up an account.

Someone will be along soon, I am sure, to get the obit for you. It appeared in the Orlando Sentinel, 9 Aug 1994.

the marriage record isn't showing up, but there might have been an announcement in the paper, Canton Ohio, maybe.

He was single and at home in 1940, in 1942 he named his mother Ethel as next of kin.

if you have as much trouble transcribing his employer in 1942, as ancestry did, the name of the company is TImken Roller Bearing, Canton, Ohio. I remember it for some reason, maybe my father sold them shipping boxes, I don't know.
