Hello everyone,   I received several copies of old newspaper clippings in
bad shape.   I am going to try and reprint them here in hopes someone out
there will connect to my Hanna and Hopkins family.   They are from the
Stockton Daily Evening Record, Stockton Calif.    No year is on it.   
Very blurred in places, but I'll try.

Their Fity Years of Happy Life in Middle West During the Exciting Yars
Following the Civil War---Both Are Alert and Active Despite Their Years.
Lodi Office Stockton Record, Dec 26....Dr. and Mrs. S. w. Hopkins
celebrated their golden wedding anniversary today.  The renewal of the
wedding vows of 50 years ago today was made the feature of the G. A. R. and
W. R. C. meeting and feast in I.O.O. F. hall this afternoon.  Rev. Bery
Smith of the Christian church efficiated and Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Brown
accompained the bride and groom to the alter.  The ceremony was performed
at 2:30 p. m. and was followed by the banquet prepared by the ladies of the
W. R. C.    Dr. and Mrs. Hopkins have rounded out a half century of married
life that has been filled with much more than the average allotmeent of
happiness and usefulness.  Dr. Hopkins, now chairman of the county
exemption board and city health officer of Lodi, is one of the most
vigorous young old men in the state and Mrs. Hopkins the mother of three
grown sons, and a grandmother is a younger woman than many who are half her
age.  Married just at the close of the Civil war, they lived through some
of the most exciting times in the nation's history
Dr. Silas Wilson Hopkins was born in Farsyth, Taney Co., Mo., October 27,
1844.  He was the second of three sons born to Rev. and Mrs. Josiah
Hopkins.  The family moved to Iowa in 1848 and Silas Wilson Hopkins was
sent to school at the Western College in Lynne Co.   Before graduating he
left to enlist in the Forty-fourth Iowa Infantry of which his father was
major.  After the war the family moved to Kansas  and the young veteran
entered Lane University at Lacompton, graduating in 1866.  He taught school
for ten years in Iowa and Kansas, and in 1879 was graduated from the
Louisville Medical College, and removed to Saroxie [I hope... blurred] Mo.,
where he practiced for 25 years.
The most important event of his life has been emitted, and that was his
marriage to Candace Alice Still on Dec 26, 1867, the first year he taught
school.  His
bride was the third of a family of five girls born to Mr. and Mrs. James
Sill, pioneer settlers of Putnam county, Indiana.  Her birthday was Aug 28,
1846.  Her father was one of the earliest practicing lawyers of the county,
and he also served as enrolling officer under President Lincoln during the
Civil war.  He was mobbed by the Knights of the Golden Circle, opposed to
the draft, and the experiences of the family in those times was graphically
related by Mrs. Hopkins a few years ago in a pamphlet written by her and
published in the Record plant.  It was entitled " A Tragedy on Deer Creek."
  Before her marriage, Mrs. Hopkins taught school in Indiana.  The family
moved to Iowa in 1866, and she was teaching school there when she met Silas
Wilson Hopkins and became his bride.   Rev. James R. Baker, a minister of
the Brethren church officiated at the wedding.  At the golden anniversary
of that wedding, this afternoon, Mrs. Hopkins wore the same dress in which
she was married a half century ago.
Dr. and Mrs. Hopkins moved to Kansas in 1868 and there two sons were born
to them, Albert R. and James Emmet.  In 1875 they returned to Iowa and
there their youngest son, Herman Dilse, was born.  In 1879 the family moved
to southwestern Missouri, where they lived until moving to Calif in 1902.
In the 20 years that he practiced medicine in Missour, Dr. Hopkins was one
of the old fashioned country doctors who seem to have lived for the service
they could give their neighbors rather than for fees.  Roads were few and
trails many, and Dr. Hopkins was in the saddle a good part of every 24
hours of every day for the full 20 years.  Under President Harrison he was
an examing surgeon for the pension department, and under the McKinley
administration he was president of the board and also was president of the
Wouthwest Missouri District Medical Society.
He and Mrs. Hopkins had enough to keep them and did not care for riches
consequently he did not reach out for practice.   He has been president of
the Lodi Boad of Health for the past 10 years and is now city health
officer of Lodi as well as chairman of the county exemption board.
The oldest son, A. R. Hopkins is in the state printing office at
Sacramento and is known as one of the most expert men in the printing
trade.  The second son. J. E. Hopkins, resides with his parents in Lodi,
but is the partner of his brother Dilse in the ownership and publication of
the Stockton labor paper...........
Dr. Silas W. Hopkins of Lodi Grand Army veteran, joins silent majority
after long successful career.   Lodi Ovvice Stockton Record June 19
Dr. Silas W. Hopkins, 85, Civil War veteran and for 28 years a resident of
Lodi, died this morning at 7:15 at his home 220 South Sacramento street. 
His three sons, Judge J. E. Hopkins of Lodi, Albert R. and Dilas Hopkins of
San Francisco were at his bedside.   He had been ill for 11 weeks, and his
daily condition was a matter of concern to the community, in which he stood
a prominetn figure as a public-spirited and splendid citizen............
Thanks everyone,   Reba

After sending out the article on S. W. Hopkins yesterday, I started
receiving several e-mails asking for my Hopkins-Hanna connection.   [Lets
hope this message doesn't repeat like the one yesterday did]     I still am
not sure how S. W. Hopkins fits in.  The articles were sent to my husbands
grandmother years ago, by a Hanna relative in Calif.   My mother-in-law
just sent them to me.

"Polly"Benson, Bourbon Co. KY by S. Rannals.  (Polly died 31 July 1874
Gibson Co. IN)  In addition to Hiram, other children were Willison

Ezekiel was the "eldest son" of JOHN HOPKINS b. c1709; died 1745

I am searching for more of my Hopkins line.

First, I want to say thank you to Kathryn Hopkins again for the information
you sent to me.

Now, the line I am searching for consist of Hopkins/Surber/Minks-Minx-Minix

My John W. Hopkins b: March 25, 1847 in Gibson Co. Indiana, m: Celia or Sela
Minks.  Married Celia on May 6th of 1876 in Pike Co., IN.  Believe this is his
second marriage.  John & Celia had 2 children named Cornelia? b: 1877 and
Oliver Harry/Harrison Hopkins b: 2-5-1879.  His first marriage is believed to
be to a Mary Loehr and they had one child named Carrie b: 1871.

All I have been able to find of Celia is:

she was born possibly in Pulaski Co., Ky in January of 1856.  Parents were
Hiram T. Minks and Eunice Surber.  Eunice was born to Joseph Marion Surber b:
1778 in Washington Co. VA., and Sarah Lewis b:Nov. 22, 1775 in Pembroke,
Narberth, Wales.  They had 6 children:  Isaac b: 11-2-1801, Adam Thomas b:
5-26-1806, Margaret (Peggy) b: 5-26-1808, Elizabeth b: 1809, Eunice b: 1812
and Sally b: 1816.

They seemed to have migrated all through VA, TN, KY and IN.

Hope someone out there can help me again.  Many, many thanks.
