My Opp Family History

My paternal grandmother was Rosina Opp b. 13 March 1880 in Glückstal, Russia. She was the daughter of
Daniel F. Opp, the granddaughter of Johann Friedrich Opp and the great granddaughter of Urban Opp.

I've traced my Opp family  back to  Rockenhausen, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany.
