I am looking for any information on my grandfather, Enrique Hoppe. This is what I know; he was a stowaway and came to America by way of ship to New York. He did not get caught so there are no records of him at Ellis Island. The first place I find him is in Mexico. He was born in Barcelona, February 25, 1894. He had a sister named Nieves Hoppe born about 1897 and died June 30, 1955. She married a man with the last name Ubach and has a daughter, Natividad. I found a letter from the daughter to my grandfather and she used the surname Hoppe. I was always told my grandfather was a Spainard but I'm finding that Hoppe is a German surname. My grandfather spoke nothing but Spainsh so we never questioned that he wasn't of Spanish decent. He had light brown hair, fair skin and blue eyes. When my father, his son was in the Navy he went to Spain and meet his Aunt Nieves but never told us any stories. Just that he went to Spain and meet her. I do have a picture of his mother and father with no names and a picture of his sister and niece. At this point I have exhausted all searching avenues and have nowhere else to search. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.
