Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Kate Hopkins
The record says the father of Kate Hopkins was J.P. Hopkins, born in England. Like so many other entries, the mother not mentioned.

"Hello, I'd be very interested in knowing the complete transcription for John Hopkins' memorial.

Hi Lee,
We will go back to check the inscription for you in the next couple weeks. We are about an hour away so unsure exactly when we will go. Thanks!

Smith Cemetery Marion Co AL
Would like to request a GPS change for Smith Cemetery in Marion Co AL. The location should be N 33.928055 W-87.692427. Also you may need to note that the markers for James Brown Smith #57394616 and Maryan Roberts Smith #57394623 have been moved to Hopewell Cemetery Fayette Co AL. Have no idea who did it, why it was done or when it was done.

RE: Charles W. Hopkins photo
I switched the photo for Charles Hopkins and also added the photo to his wife's page. Sorry I didn't notice the difference in the dates, but the request link was for the other Hopkins, there was none for Charles W. or his wife Lula. The dates are 1876-1955 for Charles and 1877-1924 for Lula.
