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.

Did some digging for you:

On the death cert is written parents are Elwin Barber and Ellen Hopkins which is wrong.

d 23 Apr 1915 Sprignfield VT

Susan Ellen Stone Hopkins b June 1855 VT no death date.

RE: Bible of Horace G. Hopkins
Hi there.
I see that you are researching this surname, so I have transferred all of that family to you. I ususally just walk cemeterys and photograph vets headstones, but that name meant something to me, so I did the whole family.
Best regards, Bud.
PS. I am in the process of transferring all of my Georgia memorials to FindAGrave one cemetery at a time. BB
