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.

!!!!!!! BRICK WALL BREAKING NEWS !!!!!!!

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 www.genforum.com
I would love any additional info you might have on them. Thanks, Lee

RE: Mary Winkle Sawyer
Yes, I would accept her, and I would also accept her children (if you don't descend from them).

RE: Mary Winkle Sawyer
Well, I do but not from that point. The last Hopkins in my tree is Mary Hopkins Hickox, who married Captain Samuel Hickox and died in 1768 in Waterbury, CT. I don't know if they are distantly related to yours. John Hopkins of Hartford CT (died ca 1654) is the earliest known Hopkins on that line.

My connection to Mrs Sawyer is that I am descended from her son Levi. Levi's daughter Rose Belle is my great-great grandmother.

RE: Hopkins
Lee - through DNA matches between my cousin and myself we have established without a doubt that our John L Hopkins, b. Dec/1841 was the son of Ashbel / Ashil Hopkins b. 1808 Stockbridge, Windsor, VT, d. unknown in Owosso, Shiawassee, Michigan. His wife was born abt 1818 in Stewartstown, Halton, Ont Canada, d. 5 Sep 1884 either Somerset County, NY or back in Canada.

Since the DNA proof only resulted recently we are not that far along in research thus only know of two other siblings born to Ashbel & Jane (Malinda Jane Barnes) HOPKINS. They were Eliza A (Mrs Herman Blodget)b. 1833 Canada, William 1837-38 Canada Niagara Co NY, Sarah 1839 & John L (1841 to btw. Fed Census of 1915 & 1920.

What do you have in your Hopkins group on Ashbel / Ashil Hopkins the son of Deac Nehemial & Tryphena (Smith) Hopkins?

Hopkins
Hi Lee...I found Charlotte but there were no other Hopkins buried in the same plot. I still have about 75% of the cemetery left to view so I will send on more Hopkins info as I come upon it.

RE: Mary Ann Wadhams Hopkins
Well, then you have a problem....
Why would anyone refuse to add info??
You could send your question to admin@findagrave.com if memorials cannot be merged.
Success!

Jane Robinson Howe Stockwell / Caldwell
Turns out that Jane # 134707451 already has a memorial: 132078827.
Not sure how you reconcile that...

She remarried and died a Caldwell.
