ROPER, need some help

I have Jason Roper and his family who were found as early as 1880 in Morgan Co., AL. The family remained there, at least some of them, until the 1930 census and perhaps longer. This is just a few generations that I have. Censuses frequently misspelled first names and instead of William Thomas Roper, had Thomas/Tomaz/whatever Roper.

Descendants of Jason Roper
                                   
       1        Jason Roper       b: October 10, 1832 in GA       d: March 09, 1904 in Morgan Co., AL
