I'm looking for the German or Dutch wife of John Hopkins and verification of his children. There may have been more than those listed above. His son William Henry Hopkins was born Feb. 13, 1838 in Springville, Erie Co., NY.
Wm. Henry was in Jackson Co., Iowa by 1860 and enlisted at Spragueville, Jackson Co, IA in 1861. He married Catherine "Kate" Moore, the adopted daughter of George & Adelia Horton Moore of Luzerne, Warren Co., NY and later Nevada, Story Co., IA. Kate's biological father's name could have been Bryant. She was born 1846 Schenectady, NY.
5 children: William Bernard Hopkins b1865, druggist Fannie m. Newmars Perry Harriet Louise 1868-1955 m. Jay L. Haddox and had 10 kids Adelia Jane m. Wm. H. Sharp Lillian Elenore m. Timothy Jerome Shea
Alice Sharp Greer, daughter of Adelia & Wm. H. Sharp was a genealogy addict and sent out many letters of inquiry on her husband's business stationery with the letterhead J. Harry Greer, Kansas City, MO. I have been lucky enough to find 2 of her letters from 1930 & 1951 and hope I will find more.
If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me. leeashmore2003@Yahoo.com
