F.Y.I. On March 26, 2002, I posted a (lengthy) message, dated on the Gallaudet Family Genealogy GenForum, entitled:"The genesis of--Gallaudet University."
The above-referenced post outlines the "historical overview" of the Gallaudet University, including brief genealogy data for some of the founding (Gallaudet / Hopkins) family members. A large portion of the genealogy data for this post was excerpted from the book, "John Hopkins of Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1634, and Some of His Descendants," by Timothy Hopkins.
