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.

Harvey Tyler
Corrected the name. If you're even remotely related to Harvey Tyler I'll gladly transfer the memorial to you. I'm not related. Let me know.

Jabez Knapp and Hannah Holley
I noticed you placed Jabez Knapp and Hannah Holley in the First Presbyterian Church cemetery. There is no such cemetery. Please put "burial unknown".
thank you.

Hopkins of Westwood Cemetery
Hi Lee,

I walked the entire section twice, stopped at the office and reviewed the map for the exact location of burial. There are no headstones for you 4 Hopkins requests. They are buried between Tobin's & Ira Polley. Please consider removing your requests.

RE: Caspar Thomas Hopkins
Ah, yes. I found the article to which you refer. Thanks.

BTW: Caspar had a second wife who is probably also buried there. Her name was Jane Elizabeth (Talcott or Taylor, depending on the source).

RE: Matilda Hopkins Camp
Sorry. My John Hopkins was John Henry Hopkins, DD, First Bishop of Vermont. He married in 1816 and had 13 children. They and their descendants are very well documented. None of them were born in Western NY; they were born either in western PA or Burlington, VT. None of them could have been the parent of your William Henry, because each was either (a) female, (b) known to have been unmarried, (c) known to have no descendants, or (d) born too late to have had children by 1838.

In the records for Cortland Rural Cemetery at the Cortland County Historical Society, it was stated that because the persons died before the cemetery opened, that they probably were removed from another cemetery,(RFAC). My guess would be the old Cortland village cemetery, that was removed to make way for the old normal school, and was where courthouse park is now. Cemetery records indicate that several hundred were moved in the 1860's to Cortland Rural. Larry
