Obituary from Madelia (MN) Messenger May 18, 1901
Another of Madelias Early Settlers Passes over the River
into the beyond.
James Hopkins peacefully
passed away Friday morning, Mar 3rd, 1901. Mr. Hopkins was born in Carlysle County
(Bourbon County), KY, April 12, 1817 and was consequently nearly a month over eighty four
years of age when he died. When about five years old his parents left Kentucky and
settled in Gibson County, Indiana, where he made his home until he was over 50 years of
age. November 22, 1838 he was united in marriage to Harriet Reavis from which union
ten children were born. Mrs. Hopkins died May 4, 1872. Two of the sons were in
the Union Army in the war of the Rebellion. Ezekiel N. Hopkins enlisting in Co H
17th Indiana regiment and was killed at the battle of Hoovers Gap, June 27 1863.
Benjamin W. Was a member of Co C 10 Indiana cavalry. He with a few others were sent
on a special detail into the country near Nashville Tenn., in April 1865 the whole detail
was captured and the fate of Benjamin W. Hopkins was never known as he was never heard of
after leaving his company. One son and three daughters survive to mourn the loss of
a fond and dutiful parent.
In the spring of 1869 the family
moved from Indiana to Madelia where they have since made their home. Soon after
their arrival Mr. Hopkins bought an interest in the general merchandise business then
being conducted by Wm. Estes in the building now occupied by the Messenger, the firm being
Estes & Hopkins. Mr. Hopkins had been raised and spent his life on a farm and he
did not find merchandising as much to his taste as farming and he soon disposed of his
interest to Chris. Teigum and moved on the farm northeast of town still owned by the
family. Mr. Hopkins has long been a consistant member of the Baptist Church and an
honored and esteemed brother of the Masonic Fraternity, he was a pleasant and cheerful
disposition, always passing a pleasant word with all he met. The funeral was held at
the residence Sunday afternoon both himself and the family prefering a private funeral.
Rev. Straw the pastor of the church conducted a short service, after which the Masonic
Lodge took charge of the service and conducted it according to their beautiful and
impressive ritualistic service. Our early settlers have been dropping off very
rapidly lately and there are now very few living that were in Madelia prior to the arrival
of the Hopkins family.
NOTE: James was a son of Ezekiel Hopkins (Aug. 2,
1788-Sept. 6, 1810) and Polly Benson (1794-July 31, 1875). James and
Harriett's children were America E. Hopkins (1839-1909), Ezekiel N. Hopkins (1841-1863),
Bedford R. Hopkins (1843-1853), Benjamin W. Hopkins (1845-1865), Malinda Hopkins
(1848-1849), Lucy E. Hopkins (1850-1855), Clarence Hopkins (1852-1855), Norah Hopkins
(1855), Daniel C. Hopkins (1857-1931), Edith Hopkins Tronsrue (1859-?).
