Alice Sharp Greer 1894 IA - 1966 CA was married to John Harry Greer. He was a Materials Equipment Engineer and salesman based in Kansas City, MO. Alice was a genealogy addict and sent out hundreds of typed letters on her husband's business stationery. I've been lucky enough to find 2 of these letters and would love to find more. It's like finding a message in a bottle!
One letter is from 1931 and the other from 1951. Alice is the daughter of William H. Sharp and Adelia Hopkins Sharp of Iowa. She is the granddaughter of William Henry Hopkins 1838 NY-1911 Odebolt, Sac Co., IA and Kate Bryant Moore Hopkins, the adopted daughter of George Moore and Adelia Horton of Story Co., IA. The Hopkins, Hortons and Moores all came from NY State.
William Henry Hopkins father was John Hopkins born around 1800 NY State. His wife was either German or Dutch. Their other children could have been named Cyrus, John, Elizabeth, Sarah, Henrietta Lovina "Hetta", Delia and possibly Richard, Lorenzo and Merlin.
If any of this rings any bells, please contact me. Thanks, Lee
PS Maturin Hopkins and his children are also mentioned in the 1951letter.
