The IGI records confirm that Hopkins Bright was the son of Albertus Bright and Patience Hopkins. I am having problems now with the following: 1.) Just how many Albertus's and Tobias's are there in the line of descent? 2.) Who were Albertus's brothers and sisters? 3.) I am able to trace Hopkins's movements in Ky, and I do have records on his family as far as birthdates and names. The family seems to have disappeared, for the most part, from the Ohio CO. area of KY? Did several of his children move to MO, or did they return to Allen CO, KY? 3.) I have a Bible record of my ggrandfather Thornton being in the Hannibal, MO,area for a brief time before he returned to Ky? The IGI records show a Thornton Bright marrying Catherine Leake in Ralls CO, MO? Was this the first marriage of my ggrandfather? If anyone can help me with these questions, I would be most appreciative. I have the names of Hopkins's children and Thornton's children that I would be willing to share with anyone who might need the information.
