Hello Stephanie. My name is William Napper and my Napper ancestors are from Caroline/Hanover counties. My father lived in King William for a while and his wife( Otley family) was from King William County. It is rumored by the elders of King William County that Frank Napper of Mount Vernon had a baby( William) by Maude Commack. William never took the Napper name. I found Frank Napper on the 1920 census, but his parents were named Alfred and Susan.

It is a confusing story, but the Nappers,Otleys, Commacks, and Truehearts are all related. The Commacks and Truehearts still live in King William County.

If your Frank Napper is the same one that I am talking about, we are related. However,since Frank's son William never took the Napper name, some of our names may not match.

I found all of this info about Frank by accident. There is aCommack who ives in norther Va. She visited a bank in D. C. and saw my son;s name (William Napper) on his desk. They talked. She knew all of my family in King William. She is a descendent of Frank Napper. But remember, she has no proof because of the rumor of the relationship between Frank and Maude. All of the old folks said it happened.
