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.

Rev. John W. Hopkins

I added the following to my entry for Rev. John Hopkins:

Another contributor has provided information that they believe this person is buried: Find A Grave Memorial #6270288.

Note: a Rev Hopkins is listed in the Old Marcellus Cemetery Records, no information indicates this person's body was moved.


I only added the information contained in the cemetery records. If others are searching for the Rev., they may contact you.

Thank you for your interest,

Hi Lee, I have added the monument pictures to all listed on the monument however I thought you might like to know that George Beaumont 1796 - 1857 119945042 is also Josephs' brother.

I visited the Ashley Cemetery today, and I didn't find any stones with the Hopkins surname on them.

Long story short.......Do you have anything of the HOPKIN'S from LUZERNE county PA. A number of us ancestors have bee researching the HOPKIN'S and PRESTON"S. We are all stumped. Do you have any leads to follow? Thanks.....Judy

RE: Mark Hopkins, Sr. 1779-1828
Yes - this is worth taking a 2nd look because both Mark Hopkins are on that same tall monument on the same side ? I'll try to post a photo later tonight showing the entire name list from the monument. I'm wondering why Mark appeared twice ? Odd - I've seen lots of doubles of headstones with a marker and monument engraved in the same plot but want to be sure there isn't another Mark out there !

Laura Duell / Purinton
Well, no offense, but half the sources out there state her maiden name was Duell (and name her parents as Duell family)... which is the name she has on her headstone. So, again: based on what source do you believe her maiden name was NOT Duell?
Added by adknative on Jun 13, 2015 1:06 PM
Laura Duell 'Purinton'
Can you explain to me why you list Laura's maiden name as Purinton when even on her gravestone her name is given as 'Duell'? Thanks.

RE: Mulloys
Thank you, Lee! I am trying hard to make it all as accurate as possible and give some personalization to the memorials. Have had a very good time with the research, as well.
