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. 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

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: Jotham Pickering
Wonderful and you are most welcome. If we are both tied into this line, would that make us related somehow? 5, huh? that is so exciting. Thank you for your info on find a grave. I had the father Peter Hopkins but no I have a wife.

William L. and Marina Hopkins
I added photos for William and Marina tonight. William is Find A Grave Memorial# 15482776. for some reason the part with their names is upside down... I guess that at some point it was toppled and when they put it back up they either didn't notice or it wouldn't stand the right way...

I found another memorial for Stephen Hopkins:
Find A Grave Memorial# 86600189. Perhaps they can be merged?

birth years
you sent me some edits to add birth years to some memorials, like
do you KNOW the birth years or are you calculating back from date of death, using the age?

Thank you

Just to let you know that her maiden appears to have been spelled as Bibee. Thank you for taking the time to send an edit!

RE: Elizabeth (Olmstead) Marchant Upright
Most likely, I got the pic on 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 Hope this helps! Pam

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.
