Bio Photo Hello fellow researchers,
This is a wonderful and rewarding past-time.

I have just returned from Ireland and ready to begin again. Sorry for the delay in responding to requests and I will attempt to get caught up. If you have some need now and I can help please let me know. Medical conditions has restricted my driving for a period so I will not be taking photos for a few months.

I do this to benefit all and help solve some of my genealogy histories and mysteries.

The listing I place here will gladly be transferred to the closest immediate family member as long as they are not part of my first line ancestral history.

I would encourage you to pay the five dollar fee to findagrave to remove ads and help support this otherwise free site as I have done with my immediate family.

In addition if I should have a photo of a headstone or family member that fits your genealogy please feel free to capture it to your site. I authorize you under creative commons attribution license cc-by-2.5

I have run across only one person who had a problem with me capturing a headstone so I tell you it is free from me no complaints.

If I can help in the Kansas City Kansas area in any way please just ask.

RE: Hopkins family of Stoddard Co. MO
Thanks for your reply to my query. Did I say William Hopkins? If so, it was my mistake. The Hopkins in the family I'm working on are Matthew W Hopkins, b around 1824 per 1850 census, his father is presumed to be John Hopkins per an unsourced Ancestry family tree. He married Nancy Adaline maiden name unknown and they had son John Hopkins b. 1841, daughter Elizabeth b 1843, daughter Ava S. b. 1846, daughter Eliza A ("Annie") b 1848, daughter Milissa b. 1851, son Robert b. 1854, daughter Martha b.1856 and son Green L Hopkins b. 1860.

Annie is my client'-s second great grandmother.

Matthew W Hopkins received 2 federal land patents in Stoddard Co., one on 1856 and one in 1859. He apparently died in 1859, we have a request in for estate records. Wife Nancy Adaline and the children are in the 1860 Census. From there we can find nothing of the family except we know Annie's life, she married Edward Ryan, a young Union soldier, in 1864 (even though it appears her brother John served in the CSA). Annie and Edward lived in Stoddard Co for two years after the War and then left.

I picked up Green L Hopkins' marriage to Ellen Stewart in Stoddard Co in 1880 and Green & family in Stoddard Co in the 1900 and 1910 censuses. Green L Hopkins is memorialized on findagrave in memorial # 26726873. He had a son memorialized on findagrave as Dollie Hopkins #26512887 and he had a daughter buried in Indiana memorialized as # 81673646.

I have Matthew Hopkins on my Ancestry public family tree entitled Logsdon/Ryan/Ellison. My user name on Ancestry is Suzantip.

We would love to know what happened to the other members of Annie's family after the Civil War. Did they die? I know there were many civilian casualties in that area. And is this Hopkins group related to the other Hopkins in Stoddard Co at the same time around the Civil War?

Thank you for your interest.

Hopkins family of Stoddard Co. MO
Hi. I'm researching the family of Matthew Hopkins and wife Nancy Adaline Hopkins of Stoddard County.
Matthew received land patents for Jackson township Stoddard County in 1856 and 1859, and probably settled there some time before that. Matthew died before Nov. 1865 but we don't know when. We can find no record of this family after the 1860 census, except for Annie Hopkins Ryan who married and moved away in 1864 and her younger brother Green L Hopkins who moved away and then resettled back in Stoddard county, dying there in 1941. I know there was another large Hopkins family in the area, probably the one in which you have a 3rd cousin Uriah William Hopkins, on whose memorial you have left flowers and a note. I am wondering if you have information about the Hopkins family in Stoddard Co. that you might share?

Thank you for your consideration and thank you for volunteering for findagrave, a wonderful resource that I appreciate every day. Suzanne A

Esick, Huldah and Leroy Hopkins
I am looking for any information on Esick Hopkins 1879-1876 and Huldah Snider Hopkins 1793-1874 in Cortland, NY, with their Son Leroy, 1820-1878. Leroy married Sally Cornelia Gumaer in Skaneateles NY May 14 1846, so he is not on Census records with Esick and Hulda in 1850, although they are in that census in Marathon, Cortland, NY with their 3 younger sons, Esick L Jr, William, and Hiram L.

Do you have any documents pertaining to Esick and Huldah and/or Leroy in New York?

I have visited the family plot in the nearby Fairview Cemetery in Homer Michigan, where Esick and Huldah, Hiram, Esick L, and Leroy are buried - Terri Lehman-Carrow

Happy to transfer Carrie Kator to you. I was at that cemetery, Forest Lawn in Detroit, looking for my gg grandparents, and found them, I was so excited as I had been looking for them for years, not knowing even which cemetery they were in. At that time I just took as many other photos as I could in a short time in order to help out others. That cemetery is in a pretty rough area now, and not many photo requests are filled, many of the cemetery records were lost, so that place can be pretty frustrating. I'm so glad to hear that it helped you!! ---Debbie

Re: Margaret Bryant
Thank you for the marital information. While proving the information you sent I found two more marriages for Margaret. Besides Everett Henderson and Albert Barton she married John H. Miller, 27 Dec 1958, Stevenson, Skamania, Washington and Charley W. Dorrell, m. 29 Aug 1964, North Bonneville, Skamania, Washington. As for Mr. Bryant, I couldn't find a marriage to him and not knowing his first name makes it hard to find anything on him.
