Alva Mudge 1804-1889 is mentioned in his brother Nathaniel's obit. Google: Rome Citizen Death Notices for the obit. Alva lived in Austin, MN in 1887 but is buried in Rome, NY.
I'm looking for any Hopkins information you might have. My Hopkins married Mudges and lived in Long Island, NY 1700's & 1800's. Then they moved west through NY state and onto Iowa. Nathaniel worked for a mercantile company named Hopkins & Mudge.
Mary Brown Mudge b1809 Burlington, VT & Alva are posted on www.findagrave.com She had 4 children: George, Caroline and Edgar (all died young), Cornelia Elizabeth Mudge b1831 married Joseph S. Beatty and went to Michigan, son Alva John Beatty 1857-1905.
Any help with Hopkins-Mudge connections greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lee
