RE: question of relation
At this time I don't have any additional information about Walter Stanley Hopwood's (Find A Grave Memorial# 142180991) family. Everything that I could find was put in Find A Grave. I found the information that I added in When I add a photo, I try to see if I can find any family that I can link them to. When I was researching this family, I found quite a bit of information that hadn't been added to Find A Grave so I went ahead and added it. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

RE: cousin connection
Hi, This is Michael Layton sorry so late getting back to you. Benjamin Hanks B.1779-D.1822 is the Ben Hanks I believe your asking about. His father was William Bedford Hanks and his father was William the Quaker Hanks and Peter Hanks is the father of William the Quaker Hanks. Peter Hanks has a brother William the carpenter Hanks married to Sarah Woodbridge and they have a son John Hanks married to Catherin. John Hanks has a son Joseph Hanks who is the father of a James Hanks who married Lucy Shipley and they have the famous Nancy Hanks mother to Abraham Lincoln. This is the family line that National Park Service goes with. I believe also this is the correct line. The only other line some go by is that Lucy Shipley was actually born a daughter of Joseph Hanks and not a daughter in law. Weather daughter or daughter in law the Hanks connection still stands for our family's. making us cousins. The Hanks DNA project shows our family connection. Sincerely Michael Layton
