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.

RE: Hopkins
Thanks for your kind words.
And before I forget again.
The name of the kind gentleman who did all the work from finding to writing out all the Hopkins names. Please send him a thank you note.

Mention the Hopkins name and mention my name Carole so he may remember what he did.

The cemetery has a $54 fee for additional information about who's buried in that same plot, so I didn't make any further inquiries about it.

RE: Hopkins
Think I found Mary F. Hopkins husband, John Hopkins, died 05/09/1881.
Need an email address to attach 2 pages of names,
a total of 29 names. Those names that were not on page 1 are in Section R, Block 9, Lot 26. Page 2.
Hope to finish this project soon, I'm getting very
behind on other Find A Grave memorials. I'm not interested in collecting numbers for Find A Grave, I'm interested in finding ancestors people are looking for.
So don't think you have to create memorials for all those names, to much and you don't have the time and I don't either. Just give me the names you really want and I'll attach the photographs.
Let me know what you think.

you, but 1st I'm going back to Calvary Cemetery this afternoon to clear up some information I don't have. So now we are missing 6 vital people and their info, but have 8 new people with their info.

RE: Hopkins
Isn't it a shame that Find A Grave has limits, only 5 photos to a grave site and the number of requests a week. Any way, There is a correction:
Most Rev George James Rassas, Auxiliary Bishop Of Chicago.
Birth: May 26 1942,
Ordination: February 2 2006.
American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church,
currently serves as an auxiliary bishop of the
Archdiocese of Chicago.
Oldest of six children
of George Rassas and Frances ( nee: McGuire ).
Born in Baltimore, Maryland.
I love taking a chip of information and turning it into a thesis.
I should have gotten my degree in Library Sciences, with a major in research. Be back in touch Weds. with what Tom at Calvary Cemetery
dug up.

RE: Hopkins Family
Yes, I did take the photos of all Hopkins grave stones last Saturday, so no problem entering them.
But I don't see any of them on my local cemetery requests page. Maybe resend, just thinking it didn't go through.
Now the news I didn't get to tell you, while I was at the Cemetery I asked one of the employees if I could have a copy of the grave card, he said it would take a couple of days to do because he is
going to copy ALL the names and ALL the grave cards for each one. Isn't that great! They are really nice guys who work there, I'm going to suggest you maybe write a thank you note to Tom and I'll give you the address later. I asked if I could pick the copies up on Weds of this week, 08/20/2014, and was told; that would be fine.
Now more great news, Tom was telling me while looking at someone's grave card that this is going to be very impressive, I asked why and was told this involves a Bishop, I asked a Archdioceses of Chicago Bishop ? And was told,
This could be the reason why the big Irish Cross at the cemetery. The name is Bishop George Rassus.
Would you ever stop to believe this has turned into a real special project. I love it.
I'll see what I can fine on Bishop Rassus.

As you requested.
John Hopkins = " father "
Mary F. Hopkins = " mother ".
Sorry, no dates nor any more information except
father and mother are written on the grave stones.
The monument must stand at least 20' if not higher. There are no markings on or around three sides of the monument. The front side of the monument which faces the main road inside the cemetery reads " Hopkins ".
There are eight(8) grave stones with names no dates all in a row, in front of the monument. From left to right:
Joseph, Libbie, James, Father, mother, Frances,
Ellen, Agnes M. Fay.
A second row just below the first row, are
four (4) names also with out dates:
Adelia, Julia, John P., Kate.
Hope this helps,
Carole K.
