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.

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 if memorials cannot be merged.

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.

RE: Hopkins
Are you related? If so, how? Would love to know. I have 2 different lines of Hopkins in my tree.

RE: Knapps
Jabez Knapp's wife was Hannah Holly of Goshen, New York. Their daughter Mary Knapp married Matthew Knapp.

Nathaniel Knapp Jr married Sarah Sutton and he was the son of Nathaniel Knapp Sr and Jemima Ward.

If you have Nicholas Knapp Genealogy which is online you will be able to see all the family connections.

Hope this helps.

TX for the quick reply
Wanted to acknowledge your quick reply, Lee...I did check out your reference, & found her obit. It is interesting to note that, EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT AT PRESENT HAVE THE KIND OF ROCK SOLID EVIDENCE I ALWAYS STRIVE FOR, she nevertheless appears to have married her first cousin in her first marriage, something that I would have thought would have been frowned upon, even back in 1855...It is no wonder that no one else has succeeded in running this down, even though quite a few researchers appear to have tried...TX again for your speedy need for a reply

find-a-grave #89878785 et. al.
Hi, Lee...As a fellow volunteer genealogist, I have been working on the Blowers clan, & believe I may have found several of them in the geographical area I would have expected...Only because subject entry makes mention of Mary E. Rowland's obit., do you possibly still have the ability to peruse it & see whether her maiden name was perhaps Blowers (I do see your info regarding her having initially married Silas Blowers, but it would not have been all that unusual back then for cousins to have married...) If the foregoing is correct, then her daughter Matilda is a/k/a Phebe M., named after Mary E. Rowland's Mom...Although I am obviously imposing, both I & everyone I end up interacting with on find-a-grave usually gets a kick out of suddenly being able to join several generations together, & isn't that after all what we are all working towards? REGARDS & A HAPPY/HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO YOU & YOURS...
