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.

RE: Lemuel Hopkins 1775-1846
I'm also related to Lemuel....his son dr Garrett V Hopkins, his son William Hopkins, his son Frank Marshall Hopkins, and his son, my dad, Frank Barton Hopkins
Lemuel's father was Ezekiel Hopkins. But his father still a mystery. With John or William

Katherine Moore
When she married her maiden name was listed on the marriage license as Katherine Stewart.

I deadended on John sorry
William Henry Hopkins I did get info on though..but stuff I am sure you probably already have. Sometimes they spell his name Wiliam...or William J Hopkins. I guess he was born up by Erie and his wife was born in Schenectady NY. Her name was Katherine..some stuff say the last name was Moore..BUT on the marriage paper it has her listed as Katherine Stewart..her dad was born in NY...her mom was born in Germany. They married in 1864 in IA..she was 19. I tried..will keep trying. Hope something helps.

RE: Aba J Hopkins
I don't know what part of NY...but...when my line came down from the Cape...they settled around Carmel NY..Brewster (which is right over the NY/CT line..the other side on CT is Danbury CT and east of Danbury is Bethel CT)..and other towns which have long ago had their names changed over time. DOB and place of birth would be a big help?

RE: Webster grave photos
I'll keep my eyes open for the Hopkins. If you want to know the names of the Hopkins in Maple Grove Cemetery, they have a database which might be of help to you.

When you have time please check out the edits that I sent to you to update the Webster's memorial pages.
Thank you for your kind words and you are welcome for the photos.

Joyce Niswander.

Aba J Hopkins
Thank you for your piece on Azor. He was my 2x great grandfather. I hope you don't mind but I have some favor to ask? Could you please correct the piece?
Azor was born in have he was married in 1873? Really he was born in 1850.
I have also listed all his children...and you have listed an Abram? I think you meant to write ABA..that is the correct spelling of Uncle Aba's name..happened lots of times.

Aba James
Frederick W. my greatgrandfather
Azor Darius
Mabel..she was a really great person
last but not least Uncle Herbert.

Again..thank you so much for all your hard work.

RE: West Rupert cemeteries
Based on GPS coordinates and Google Earth, they may be the same cemetery.

If you use Google Earth to find the W Rupert Cemetery, then scan up along Rte 153 (Rupert Rd), the next cemetery you come to (just under 2 miles) is just outside town, on the north side of the road, like the west Rupert cemetery. This cemetery is not nearly as old as the West Rupert Cemetery.
I think I found some information that there was a cemetery out on East Street, which is near the West Rupert Cemetery, but I didn't look for it hard or find it. I picked that cemetery to photograph simply because it was near to where I was staying at the time, it's adjacent to the highway, and no one had photographed it for Find A Grave, so please don't consider me an expert on the area. I left Vermont in 1970 and have been in Arizona since '75.
