Re : "Hops".This is realy Hass. The old way of writing a double "s" was often like a "p". Hence, a name likle Jessee ws written Je"p"ee.
I find a Henry Hass in 1840 DeKalb County, Tenn with the "Hops" spelling, age bracket 30-40. On the sane page was Philip ""Hops", age 50-60, a likely father to this Henry. I think I have seen this Philip elsewhere and will try to find where.
DeKalb County was formed in 1837 from parts of Warren, White and Cannon counties.
