Recently someone asked a question about Bethiah Hopkins, and I
accidently deleted the reference. I don't remember the question, but I have a
document that I will pass along that was copied for me by a cousin, which he obtained from
the Hopkins Historical Society in Hopkins, MN. The "Donor" was George
Winter and the document is D 710.0. It is a typed transcription of what appears may
have been bible records. It mentions Bethiah Hopkins, and for whatever it's worth, I
will include it here. It is a long shot, but perhaps worth pursuing.
