Bio and Links
I live in Edina, MN and winter in San Diego, CA.
I'm an amateur genealogist working on the following families:

Ashmore Eng> 1634 MD> 1800 GA> 1880 AL

Stratton Eng> 1630's NJ> PA> MI> IA> MS

Mulloy Ire> VA> MS

Reed ?> AL

Hopkins Eng> 1630'sRI> 1800NY> 1860IA.


I finally found John Hopkins b @ 1800 NY as the father of William Henry Hopkins b 1838 Erie Co., NY. So the search continues for his mother. AND now I need the parents of John Hopkins! Does it ever end?

I'm looking for the parents of my William Henry Hopkins b1838 Springville, Erie Co., NY. He married in 1864 in Jackson Co., IA Catherine "Kate" Bryant Moore b1846 Schenectady, the adopted daughter of George & Adelia Jane (Horton) Moore of Luzerne, Warren Co., NY and later Nevada, Story Co., IA. William died 1911 in Odebolt, Sac Co., IA. Kate in 1924. This could be a RI Gov Stephen Hopkins 1707-1785, signer of the Declaration of Independence line. Any help greatly appreciated!!!

Haddox Eng> 1600's VA> OH> IA

I have posted hundreds of messages on these families at
I would love any additional info you might have on them. Thanks, Lee

Many Thanks to Michael Hollander for posting all of the wonderful photos on my findagrave memorials.

Hopkins at Mt Hope Cemetery, Rochester, NY

I put up info for 3 of your photo requests at Mt Hope, which unfortunately led to graves in the public grounds that have not survived to the modern day. It is all discussed in the caption of the photos. Note that there is info there gleaned from the Mt Hope Interment Records...and, in the case, of Jane A. Hopkins, there was additional info gleaned from a survey of gravestones done way back in the 1920s and 1930s that did find something for her.

Your other 4 requests require going out in the field. (Only one has a surviving legible gravestone according to a survey of such, but the other 3 at least show that the person in question or other family members were buried in the stated location.) Note that when there is no first name on the memorial, as in two of your requests, it usually means the memorial was created from an entry in the interment records that was listed only as someone's child (e.g., Thos G. Hopkins' child)...most often a very young child, even stillborn or premature, and this is true for the two that you requested.

RE: Caroline Louise Hopkins Tyler b1836
Lovina Hopkins Eaton was the daughter of A. Hopkins

Harriet Hopkins Eaton was the daughter of George Hopkins.

And Caroline Louise Hopkins Tyler was the daughter of John Hopkins.

I believe that there may be a connection, but they were not sisters.

Thank you Lee for the profile on Matthew. I never found anything on him to show why he was in New Haven and his wife is not buried with him. Do you have any other info on him? That marker for his son is also an original design, I don't know if I have seen another like that.
I am not related if you would like him transferred to your care I would be happy to do it.

d 23 Apr 1915 Sprignfield VT

Susan Ellen Stone Hopkins b June 1855 VT no death date.
