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.
!!!!!!! BRICK WALL BREAKING NEWS !!!!!!!
I finally found John Hopkins b @ 1800 NY as the father of William Henry Hopkins b 1838 Erie Co., NY. Other possible siblings of William Henry are Cyrus, Richard, John, Elizabeth, Hetta and others. 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

birth years Hi, you sent me some edits to add birth years to some memorials, like http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=32568838 do you KNOW the birth years or are you calculating back from date of death, using the age?
RE: Elizabeth (Olmstead) Marchant Upright Most likely, I got the pic on ancestry.com. and am related to her through either my mother or father's side of the family. I will have to look at my family tree on ancestry.com. Hope this helps! Pam
Robert Narcisse/Nelson Gibeau/Gebo/Jabo There are at least nine different spellings of this soldier's name in military records alone for his Civil War service in three different units. Interested researchers can look for a future issue of the National Archives' magazine, Prologue, for more information on this fascinating story of Walt Whitman and his volunteer work in Civil War hospitals.
