Index of a book on Ezekiel and Sarah Hazzard Hopkins, of Kentucky, (also Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania)

This is an index of a book written by Mrs. H. R. Ball, 6072 Horizon Dr., East Lansing, MI, 48823. Although I tried to contact Mrs. Ball to purchase the book, the mail was returned "forwarding order outdated". I have the copy of the book.  I will do lookups!

was a man of no inconsiderable distinction in
Kentucky, and is elsewhere mentioned in this history.  He was a good man,
of untarnished reputation, and of great popularity.  He was born in
Albemarle County, Virginia, and served with distinction in the
Revolutionary War, having fought at Princeton, Trenton, Monmouth,
Brandywine, and Germantown; and also as a lieutenant colonel of a Virginia
regiment at the siege of Charleston.  He removed to Kentucky in 1797, and
served a number of years in the State Legislature.  In the year 1812 he
led, as has before been stated, two thousand troops against the Kickapoo
Indians.  He was a Representative in Congress from Kentucky from 1813 to
1815.  He died October, 1819, at a very advanced age.Carol  [email protected]

New to the list---------searching for information on George
Washington Hopkins and  wife, Sarah Looney,  married in Cumberland Co,
KY    17 Oct 1822.  Sarah was the daughter of
Robert Looney and Susannah Williams Looney of Cumberland Co.
Her grandparents, James and Keziah Williams, lived near Indian Creek.
Would appreciate information about her father, Robert Looney.  Does
anyone know  his  occupation?  Was he deceased by Oct 1822 when Sarah
married  George Washington  Hopkins?
Sarah's  grandfather, James Williams, witnessed the purchase deed
when George Washington Hopkins purchased 100 acres only one
month after the marriage, Nov  1822.  Does anyone have a copy of the
marriage certificate for George W. and Sarah Looney  Hopkins?
Would appreciate any references to this Robert Looney  family.
Thank you.    Elizabeth

That is all of this family I have for now. 

I have a reprint copy of an old book published in 1916 by William Montgomery Clemens called Early marriage records of the Hopkins family in the United States.  I am not sure if someone already posted marriages from this book or not.  It does not by any means cover all the early marriages of Hopkins, but does have some from certain states.   I will type these in by state if it has not already been done.

Mary Jane Hopkins and Andrew Jackson Travis had the following children:

3. Cyrus Douglas Travis b. Mar 1, 1861 in Jefferson, Greene, Ia. d. Feb
7, 1945 in Clarinda, Page, Ia. married Margaret V. Bolton in 1885.

The above information has been proved by marriage records, census
records, family histories that have been written, cemetery records.

Now this information is not proven:

Robert Hopkins born 24 Jun 1808 in the son of John Hopkins and Mary

Harriet Coffey born 16 Apr. 1813 is the daughter of Ananias Coffey and
Jane Hindman.

This makes Robert Hopkins and Harriet first cousins.  I got this
information from a Coffey researcher.  As I said, I have not proven this
information as of yet.  If you or anybody that visits the Hopkins Web
Page can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it.  Please
include my E-mail address.

If there is any other information you need please let me know.

Greenup Hopkins (b. 19 May 1809 KY - Bible record) married 20 June 1833
Julia Ann Howell in Logan Co. OHIO. 

They moved from Logan Co. to Davis Co. Iowa in 1848, had 10 children (have names and marriages), and died 18 July 1859 Fabius Twp, Davis Co. Iowa.

Greenup was a son of Hazzard Hopkins who was born about 1780 in
Washington Co. PA to Ezekiel and Sarah (Hazzard) Hopkins.  They were
from Sussex Co. DE.  Ezekiel was the son of John Hopkins (d. 1745) and
unknown wife.  John was the son of Samuel Hopkins (1668-1744) and Jennet
Noble; Samuel was the son of Samuel (1636-1711) and Hannah Turner.  The
Samuels both served in the Maryland legislature and were active in the
Presbyterian Church. Well docuemented.  They lived originally in
Somerset Co. MD, but when Worcester Co. was formed in 1742, their land
was there, and they were in that part of Worcester which was taken by
Sussex Co. Delaware.  (Finding records is a real treasure hunt because
of the border changes.)

Ezekiel and Sarah sold his father's land HOPKINS DISCOVERY as "eldest
son" in Sussex Co. DE in 1778 and moved to Washington Co. PA (south of
Pittsburgh).  Then about 1790 they moved to Kentucky, finally settling
in Cane Ridge, Bourbon Co. KY.  Sarah died before April 1813 when
Ezekiel married Susannah Davis.

Greenup was brother to Zerilda Hopkins who m. Rev. John Wesley Brock,
a Methodist circuit rider; they were my gg grandparents. This is
probably more than you wanted to know about my family.

I am wondering who William Hopkins was.  Could he have been related to
our branch?  Otherwise, why was he in the same county as Greenup's
family?  Cousins? (Or just a coincidence?)

HOPKINS, Samuel, pioneer, b. in Albemarle county, VA., about 1750; d. in
Henderson, KY., in October, 1819.  He was an officer in the Continental
army, fought with distinction at Princeton, Trenton, Monmouth, and
Brandywine, and at the battle of Germantown his battalion of light infantry
was nearly annihilated, while he was severely wounded.  He was
lieutenant-colonel of the 10th Virginia regiment at the siege of Charleston,
and after the death of Col. Richard Parker became its colonel, and served as
such till the end of the war.  He was made a prisoner, with the other
officers, at the surrender of Charleston on 20 May, 1780.  While they were
conveyed in a British vessel to Virginia he complained to the captain of the
harsh treatment and starvation to which they were subjected, and threatened
to raise a mutiny on the ship unless they were treated as officers and
gentlemen.  This bold language secured for the sufferers proper care during
the rest of the voyage.  In 1797 he settled on the Green river in Kentucky,
and served for several sessions in the legislature of that state.  In
October, 1812, he led 2,000 mounted volunteers against the Kickapoo villages
on the Illinois river, but the party was misled by the guides, and , after
wandering for several days about the prairie, returned against the wishes
and commands of the officers.  In November he led a hand of infantry up the
Wabash, and destroyed several deserted villages, but lost a part of his
force by an ambuscade.  The Indians declined a combat, and he was compelled
by the severe cold to return to Vincennes, after destroying a town on
Wildcat creek; but immediately afterward the Indians sued for peace.  Gen.
Hopkins was elected a representative in congress from Kentucky, and took his
seat on 26 June, 1813.  After the conclusion of his term, which ended on 2
March, 1815, he retired to his farm in Hopkins county, which was named for him.

Mark Hopkins paper

Williams College Manuscripts

                                  Archives and Special Collections
he HOPKINS FAMILY PAPERS, 1745-1930, contain the personal letters of various
members of the Hopkins family and
the personal and business papers of Mark Hopkins (1802-1887) and his
brother, Albert Hopkins (1807-1872). Mark
Hopkins' business papers reflect his significant involvement in matters of
education, philosophy, morality, and especially
Christianity. Mark's life intertwined these various interests to such an
extent that a letter which here has been categorized as
"business" might in fact contain an acknowledgment of a donation to the
college, moral advice to an alumnus and an intricate
theological argument. Albert Hopkins' surviving papers reflect his keen
interest in the physical sciences, which dominated the
course of his professional career. Family Papers contain various journals,
papers, and letters from five generations of the
extended Hopkins family. This material is largely personal in nature and
provides a revealing glimpse of the social and moral
world of nineteenth-century Berkshire County. The collection is organized
into three series: MARK HOPKINS PAPERS,

Stotts made oath to the certificate attached to the application.
The court decided that it is their opinion that the above applicant was a
soldier in the Revolution. And served as he stated. (No record listing the
death of William Hopkins, who must have left the county.)

Alex Hindman's will probated in 1805, names children-Son Robert, wife Mary,
Daughters, Rebecca Watt, Mary and Jane.  These Hindman's came from
County, Virginia.  The earliest one I found was the Reverend John Hindman in
Augusta County, Virginia Vol. 3 by Chalkey.  Several of these families came
Adair County early and I believe the Hopkins and Kents came along with them
I want to run this by you again
Robert Hopkins died at an early age in Adair County, KY, He married
Stone and Isaac Kent was a bondsman for him as he was for our William.
Robert left an infant son and William Stone the infants grandfather was
appointed guardian, however at a later date of about 1820, William Stone
his guardianship and William Hopkins (the Revolutionary Soldier) was
guardian.  This William Hopkins Revolutionary war soldier was born in
Frederick County, Virginia in 1762, lived in Shenendoah County, Virginia,
then moved to Chatham County, North  Carolina after he was discharged and
lived there until 1810, then moving to Union County, South Carolina, where
lived a short time and then moved to Wilson County, TN, where he lived for
years and then moved to Adair County, Ky.(This information from him in his
application for pension)
My question is how is he related to our Hopkins.  I can see no evidence that
he was married.  Do you think he could be an Uncle to William and Lucy?
has to be a close tie of some kind.
Isaac Kent did not sell his land in Adair County until several years after
going to Missouri.  I could find no record that showed William sold his land
there and might have just abandoned it.  There was a John Stotts that must
have been close to the family who was a minister in Adair County, and was
person that sold Isaac's land for him and he also made oath to William
(the Revolutionary Soldier) records and service record.  Also witnessed
Roberts will.
In Robert's will (Will Book A-141, July 4, 1808) Legatees-Wife Elizabeth all
property till son William comes of age. Signed-Robt. Hopkins
Witnesses: John Hugart, John Stotts
I have a reference in my book of a Dicy Hopkins, dau of Robert Hopkins
deceased md George Blair 9-25-1820  with the consent of William Hopkins,
guardian to Dicy.
Other marriages there:
John Hopkins and Mary Hindman dau of Alex. Hindman md 12-18-1804
William Hopkins and Lidia Nelson    4-23-1818
Solomon Hopkins and Elizabeth Hopkins   9-25-1810
Robert Hopkins and Harriet Coffey, dau of Jane Coffey 9-27-1830
William Blair and Susie Hopkins  1-26-1824
Alexander Hindman's will was probated in 1805 and names children:
Son Robert, daus., Rebecca Watt, Mary and Jane.  These Hindmans came from
Rockbridge County Virginia.  Several of these families came to Adair County
early and our Kents and Hopkins may have come along with them.  Its worth
looking at any way.
Well, just wanted to give you some food for thought.  Email me back with
thoughts on this. Ruby

Obituary from Madelia (MN) Messenger  May 18, 1901


Passed Beyond

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.
