Looking for ancestors and descendants of Tefft & Hopkins families. They were originally from Rhode Island and removed from Little Valley, NY in late 1830's to ???.
David Ball Hopkins was a brother of Royal and their father, I believe, was William A. Hopkins who was a founding member of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Little Valley in 1823.
Little Valley, NY was midway on the road between Springville, Erie Co., NY and Ashford (formerly Riceville), Cattaraugus Co., NY. There were Hopkins in all 3 towns.
I'm looking for the parents of my William Henry Hopkins born 1838 Springville, Erie Co., NY died Odebolt, Sac Co., Iowa and hope he ties in with some of these Hopkins. He married Kate Moore in Iowa in 1864. She is the d/o George Moore b1815 lived Luzerne, Warren Co., NY and Nevada, Story Co., Iowa and wife Adelia Jane Horton Moore, daughter of Cornelius Moore and wife Harriet Fuller of Montgomery Co., NY.
