Notes for OLIVER HOPKINS, REV WAR:

OBIT of Gardner Hopkins:He was a native of RI and the last of a family of 10 children of Oliver Hopkins, a soldier of the Revolution. Mrs Doubleday DAR application names 7, so still need proof of other 3.

Information came from Nancy Curran:

DAR papers of Nina Janette Martin, claiming Oliver Hopkins as patriot ancestor. He served in the RI Militia, Rev. War. He was my grandmother's (Susan Hopkins Stafford) father and my great-grandfather. Death--dropped dead, buried Goodell Corners, near Marathon age 82.

DAR papers of May Watrous Harmon also give information about Oliver Hopkins. REF: RI to Lapeer Pioneer: Rev. soldier, one of Washington's men. DAR records list him as a Private, RI, PNSR & WPNS

REF: O.W. Division F.R.W. 18045 National #35500

DAR papers (Mrs. Elizabeth H. Doubleday DAR ID # 38209) Elizabeth Stafford Doubleday. (Susan)

(my ref) Mrs. Minnie Peck Fisher DAR ID # 21204 descent from Oliver through son Josiah Hopkins & wife Orilla Taylor

(my ref) Mrs. Margaret Fisher Filbrick DAR ID # 160700 daughter of above

Cortland Co., History Society files says his 1778 enlistment was as substitute for his father, Jonah Hopkins. Residence of soldier at time of enlistment Scituate RI.

Cortland Co History verifies that this Oliver is the son of Jonah.

The Oliver in Otsego Co., NY 1800, appears to be the Oliver that ends up in Cortland Co., NY.

Notes for GARDNER HOPKINS:

Conneaut Reporter--December 25, 1879
HOPKINS--In Amboy, Dec. 10th, Instantly of apoplexy, at his residence, Gardner Hopkins, aged 84 years. He was a native of Rhode Island and the last of a family of ten children of Oliver Hopkins, a soldier of the Revolution.

Ashtabula Telegraph 26 Dec. 1879 (copy sent by Peggy Kimbell)
CONNEAUT

My Dear Old Telegraph:--The cold chilly winds of December are upon us, and if we have all done our duty we are prepared for them, as we have had sufficient warning.

Last week two quite sudden deaths occurred in out midst. One a Mr. Garner Hopkins, who lived near Amboy station, had been threshing for a neighbor with a flail, came home and while sitting in his chair with the family, suddenly ceased to breathe, and that was all the struggle he had to pass away. He was a very robust, hearty man for one of his age--85. Some fifty years ago he was a resident of Ashtabula, and lived near Bunker Hill. The other was Stephen b. Hopkins, a nephew of Garner. He had been a resident of the borough for the past eight years. He was formerly from Pierpont, and I believe was one of the pioneers of that township. He was one of the most successful deer hunters on the Reserve. The Hopkins family were natives of Rhode Island, and descended of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. {Stephen Hopkins, Signer of the Declaration of Independence was actually a second cousin twice removed.}

Ashtabula Telegraph 26 Dec. 1879

CONNEAUT

My Dear Old Telegraph:--The cold chilly winds of December are upon us, and if we have all done our duty we are prepared for them, as we have had sufficient warning.

Last week two quite sudden deaths occurred in out midst. One a Mr. Garner HOPKINS, who lived near Amboy station, had been threshing for a neighbor with a flail, came home and while sitting in his chair with the family, suddenly ceased to breathe, and that was all the struggle he had to pass away. He was a very robust, hearty man for one of his age--85. Some fifty years ago he was a resident of Ashtabula, and lived near Bunker Hill. The other was Stephen b. Hopkins, a nephew of Garner. He had been a resident of the borough for the past eight years. He was formerly from Pierpont, and I believe was one of the pioneers of that township. He was one of the most successful deer hunters on the Reserve. The Hopkins family were natives of Rhode Island, and descended of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. {Stephen Hopkins, Signer of the Declaration of Independence was actually a second cousin twice removed.}

Tilden Citizen, Sat., November 12, 1904, page 5, column 2 Crandall HOPKINS

"Crandall Hopkins died Saturday evening last after a week's illness. The deceased was a well known figure in and around Tilden, he having been the first white man to make his home in Antelope County. Coming here as early as 1868, when the only inhabitants of the wide prairies were wild animals and roving bands of Indians, he lived to see his surroundings advance from savagery and non-productiveness to a state of the highest civilization and fruitfulness. By his own efforts he carved a home in the wilderness and lived to the ripe old age to enjoy the competency which he acquired by his labor. He reared a large family, most of whom are still living in the neighborhood, and was a perfect type of the rugged, straightforward, honorable dealing pioneer, by whose energy and fearlessness the former great American desert has been reclaimed from nature and converted into the most profitable and prolific agriculture region on the American continent. He was a descendant of Stephen Hopkins, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and was as sincerely patriotic towards the American government and as jealous of the rights of the people as was his famous ancestor. Although in his 80th year he retained full possession of his strong metal faculties and a large share of his great physical strength until a week before his death. The funeral was held at Neligh on Monday, and was attended by a large numbers of the older settlers in the vicinity."

Tilden Citizen, Sat., November 12, 1904, page 5, column 3-4---Obituary

"Amos Crandall Hopkins, son of Gardiner & Freelove Parker Hopkins was born Virgil, Cortland County, New York, May 22, 1825. His father was a farmer and in 1833 removed with his family to the Western Reserve in Ohio, settling on a farm near Conneaut, Ashtabula County. Here the father opened up a farm and the subject of our sketch, when not assisting his father "worked out" helping neighboring farmers. About 1840, tiring of the farm, and desiring a more exciting life, being quite strong and rugged for his age, he engaged himself as a sailor on a boat in the lakes. This pursuit he followed for 5 1/2 years holding the position of mate, before he was twenty years of age. November 20th, 1845 he was married at Girard, Erie County, Pennsylvania to Miss Thankful Otisca Ames, a native of Greenville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania. To this union were born thirteen children, who all except five survive. After marriage he engaged in farming. In the fall of 1850 he removed with his family to the vicinity of Gratiot, Lafayette County, Wisconsin. Here he lived there nearly eighteen years, engaging in farming pursuits. About the first of January 1868 he decided to leave Wisconsin, and in February he removed to Illinois, settling near Sterling, Whiteside County. Here he found the country to sickly to suit him, he stopped less than 6 months then started for Nebraska, to seek a location on government land. While crossing the ferry at Omaha he was directed to the Elkhorn Valley. He came west to Fremont then followed up the valley until he found a location to suit his idea of a farm and stock ranch. This proved to be E 1/4 of NE 1/4, Sec. 3, T24, R5W and the S 1/4 of the SE 1/4, Sec. 34, T25, R5W. Upon this he made homestead entry No. 596, on the 22 October 1868, proving up on same March 11, 1874. In the early part of November 1870 a party of eleven Brule Sioux Indians carried off or destroyed everything of value they could find at the house of Robert Horn on Cedar Creek. The settlers armed & pursued the Indians, Mr. Hopkins being of the number. The Indians were overtaken in Holt County and a fight ensued. In this fight Mr Hopkins was shot through the right arm with an arrow, and had a horse wounded. Shortly after his settlement, feeling the need of a blacksmith, he went to Sioux City, Iowa and purchased a blacksmith's outfit of anvils, bellows and tools. Having had a little experience as helper in a shop in early life, he opened up a shop which proved a great convenience to the little settlement. In 1872 he opened up a small stock of merchandise such as the needs of the early settlers required. While running this store a post office called "Ogden" was started in his store building. From his first settlement in Antelope County Mr. Hopkins was extensively engaged in farming and stock raising, his farm and ranch being one of the best in Antelope County. He also set fruit trees and on his farm a very fine orchard of bearing fruit trees. He also had fine a fish pond stocked with choices kinds of fish on his farm. (CONTRIBUTED)

The Ives Family Tree, by Paul W. Ives (sent by Nancy J. Curran, descendant. of Nancy Freelove Hopkins)

...In 1833, when about eight years of age, his farmer parents moved near Conneaut, Ashtabula Co., OH. ...When the trip to Nebraska was undertaken there were three two-horse wagons and an extra horse. They crossed Iowa & the Missouri River, passage was made by steam ferry. He was advised by the ferryman & later by a rancher to settle in the Elkhorn Valley. After filing for what he thought was good timber land, he found later to his disgust that he had no timber on his property. He went two miles further and found exactly what he wanted.

In early 1869 he erected a log house with the rear end dug into the bank. From Sept. 1868 to Jan. 1869 Mr. Hopkins and his family were the sole white occupants of Antelope Co. In a scuffle with raiding Indians (Sioux) Amos was wounded in the arm. He took up blacksmithing in 1869. In 1871 he opened a store.

NEGenWeb Project-Antelope County Who's Who in Nebraska, 1940 ANTELOPE COUNTY Mrs. R. J. Hering page 19 "On Aug. 31, 1868, Crandall Hopkins with his wife and twelve children settled on a one hundred and sixty acre homestead in Antelope County twenty-five miles from the nearest neighbor, thirty miles from the nearest store and post office, more than one hundred miles from the nearest railroad station and seventy-five miles from the nearest mill.

Hopkins had come by covered wagon nearly six hundred miles across the greater part of Illinois and all of Iowa to locate in a new and untried part of Nebraska. Few tools and household goods had been brought on the journey. Despite many obstacles he broke the sod, tilled the soil and subsequently purchased adjoining lands."

Mother of Antelope County Dead

"Mrs. Crandall Hopkins, the first woman settler in Antelope county, died last Sunday at her home near Tilden. Funeral services were held Tuesday at the M. E. church in Neligh, conducted by Rev. Chas. P. Lang of Tilden, and burial was made in Laurel Hill cemetery. The following obituary was read by A. J. Leach:

Thankful Otisca Ames was born in Greenville, Crawford county, Penn., May 25, 1827. and died at her home near Tilden, Neb., Sept 19, 1915, at the age of 88 years, 8 months and 25 days.

Her father Allen Ames, came of good old English stock, and her mother, Nancy Glancey was of Holland Dutch stock--the ancestors on both sides coming from the old country to America in early colonial days.

Her early education as such things are now understood, was very limited, but her education in the school of experience, during her long life, was strenuous, thorough and complete.

Her early life was spent at home in her father's family, and differed little if any from that of other girls of her age at that date. She was taught to spin and weave, and to make her own garments, and those of other family members of the family, from home products--things that are among the lost arts at the present time.

On November 20, 1845, when a little more than 18 years of age, she was married to Amos Crandall Hopkins, at Girard, Erie county, Penn., settling for a time near Conneaut, Ohio, on the Western Reserve. In the fall of 1850 she moved with her family to Wisconsin, settling near Gratiot, Lafayette county. Here the family lived until February 1868, when they moved about a hundred miles south to Whiteside county, Illinois. It was her husband's intention to buy a farm and remain in Illinois but, having some sickness in the family, and not being well suited with the outlook, it was decided to come to Nebraska. The start was made for Nebraska on August 3, 1868, and the journey was made by covered wagons in four weeks, the family landing in what is now Antelope county either August 31 or September 1, 1868-the exact date being in doubt.

Almost exactly forth-seven years of her life--three years more than half of it--have been lived in Antelope county. Her life, especially since coming to Nebraska, had been eventful, and in some instances remarkable and quite out of the ordinary experiences of other people. She was the first woman to settle in Antelope county, her home for the first five months being in a little one room log house twenty-five miles from the nearest neighbors-- the same distance from the nearest post office--seventy-five miles from the nearest mill, which was at West Point, and a hundred and five miles from the nearest railroad depot by the traveled road.

It was her oldest son who took up the first homestead in the county. Her grandchild was the first boy born in the county. The first wedding in the county was celebrated at her home on August 14, 1869, at which time her oldest son and her oldest daughter both chose their partners for life.

She was the mother of fourteen children, three of whom were born in Ohio, nine in Wisconsin, and two in Nebraska. Her children are: Allen Hopkins of Neigh; Wm. H of Meadow Grove; Nancy Freelove, wife of Elias W. Ives, deceased; Emma, wife of Eli Herlocker, deceased; Ella, a twin of Emma, wife of John Jarmin, deceased; Lydia, wife of Andrew Minkler of Tilden; Mary, wife of Levi Minkler of Eugene, Oregon; Ned, deceased; Ida, wife of Andrew Young, deceased; Cora, wife of J. F. McGrew, deceased; Andy of Clearwater; Warren, deceased; Millie, wife of Chris Nelson of Tilden; Ernest, probably deceased.

But what is more remarkable still, her grandchildren number one hundred and three and her great-grandchildren one hundred and eighteen.

Today her remains will be borne to their last resting place in Laurel Hill cemetery by six of her great-grandchildren; Orville Hopkins, Dewey Hopkins, Lyle Hopkins, Albert Hopkins, Howard Recroft, Clarence Warrick, and six of her grandchildren, David Hopkins, William Hopkins, Henry Hopkins, Ritchey Hopkins, Clyde Hopkins, Fred Minkler, will serve as honorary pall bearers.

Several years ago, at one of the annual gatherings of the Pioneers, Mother Hopkins was christened the MOTHER OF ANTELOPE COUNTY. an honorable title, well earned and well deserved. She will always be remembered by that name.

Mother Hopkins was a strong woman mentally and physically--she was honest, earnest, energetic, pure and religious. She did her part well. Her physical strength had been visibly failing for some time before death came, but her mental faculties were active and bright to the end.

About an hour before her death came she asked her youngest daughter to bow at her bedside in prayer. After the prayer, composing herself to sleep, she quickly passed unto an easy slumber from which she did not awaken, and thus she quietly passed into the great beyond, honored and loved by all who knew her.

Compendium of History Reminiscence and Biography of Nebraska-1912

"Jeptha Hopkins, proprietor of one of the most valuable estates in Antelope county, Nebraska, has been a resident of that locality for many years. He is prominently known throughout the state as one of the foremost farmers and stockmen in Nebraska, and, after many years' hard labor in building up his business, is now prepared to enjoy the remaining years of his life in peace and comfort, surrounded by a host of good friends and acquaintances. However, he still looks after his farming interests. A picture of his residence will be found on another page.

Mr. Hopkins, a native of Cortland county, New York, was born April 17, 1833. With his parents, he went to Ashtabula county, Ohio, when he was but three years old, living there twenty years. Then he went to Lafayette county, Wisconsin, residing there six years. Mr. Hopkins enlisted in the army during the civil war, enlisting August 12, 1862, joining Company C, Thirty-third Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, and during his service was down through the south with General Sherman, until "the march to the sea," and then, under General Thomas, fighting Hood through Tennessee. He was mustered out August 23, 1865, with rank of second lieutenant. He took part in the following battles: Coldwater, Mississippi; Siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi; Jackson, Mississippi; Pleasant Hill Landing; Clantierville, Louisiana; Cane River, Louisiana; Yellow Bayou, Louisiana; Tupelo, Mississippi; Nashville, Tennessee; Spanish Fort, Alabama; the Mexican Expedition, Marksville, Louisiana, and Bayou Boeuf.

Mr. Hopkins came to Antelope county, Nebraska, in November, 1870, driving from Wisconsin to the homestead claim he had taken up, which was located in section four, township twenty-four, range five, and which remains the home of our subject to this day. On this land he first built a log house, which he covered with sod, it being a very comfortable home in those days. Mr. Hopkins experienced the many hardships and disappointments incident to those earliest days, when it required almost incredible courage to brave the western frontier. He suffered losses of all description, three consecutive years, losing his entire crops by the grasshopper raids; also experienced a similar loss in the dry year of 1894, and many times fought prairie fires to save his home and possessions.

Mr. Hopkins was united in marriage September 17, 1865, to Miss Emelia True. Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins are the parents of four children, named as follows: Junie, who died February 28, 1890; Robert; Elmer, who is married to Miss Lydia McCormick, has four children, and lives at Harrison, Nebraska; and Mina, wife of John Ives, the parents of five children."

Notes for RAY ANDREW MINKLER:

email from Craig J. Peterson, Feb. 28, 2000

"The information I have about Lydia Hopkins' family comes from a short history that was written by Robert Arthur Minkler and sent to my grandfather in 1976. Robert A. Minkler wrote "The Family Minkler" a genealogy of the Minkler family and most of the information came from his research on that book.

Additional information comes from "Minkler in America: A Genealogy" by William Ward Miller.

The history indicates Andrew Minkler worked for Crandall Hopkins as a clerk in a small store on the Hopkins homestead. That is how he meet and later married Lydia. Ray, their son, is the my ancestor. Ray A Minkler married three times and my Grandfather is his oldest son from his second wife.

I have a history of Ray A Minkler written by his third wife and also by Myrtice Cowin Dickenson, oldest daughter of Ray A Minkler's oldest sister Minnie. I met his third wife, Vula, when I was very young. My mother was writing her to get information and we stopped one summer on our way through California. I remember she used to knit us stockings and things and send to our house in Utah.

DEATH RECORD--Andy Hopkins

Andy Hopkins was born August 22, 1865 in Layfayette County, Wisconsin and passed away at his home in Neligh March 30, 1942 at the age of 76 years, 8 months and 7 days.

At the age of three years he moved with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Crandall Hopkins, the first pioneer family, to Antelope county, where they settled on a homestead northwest of Tilden, then known as Burnett.

April 16, 1884 he was united in marriage with Minnie L. Nelson. To this union was born fifteen children, four of whom preceded him in death.

In 1907 he moved to a farm six miles south of Royal, retiring from the farm in 1921 to live in Royal, then in 1936 to Neligh, the present home.

Left to mourn his passing are his wife, five sons, Clyde, Clearwater; Andy, Emmett, Idaho; Ernest, Neligh; Harry and Harold, Omaha; six daughters, Mrs. Hazel Riley, Valentine; Mrs. George Bonestell, Atkinson; Mrs. Iver Prince, Winside; Mrs. Edith Workman, Mrs. Rudolph Mudra and Mrs. Mae Wandra, Omaha. Thirty-three grand children, fifteen great grand children and a host of relatives and friends.

In April 1929 he chose to live for the Lord and work in fellowship with his people and found great pleasure and joy in doing so. Services are being conducted in keeping with his wishes.

Interment will be in the family plot in the Tilden cemetery.

In Memory of Andy Hopkins

In memory of my father, Andy Hopkins, known to all his children, sons-in-laws and daughters-in-laws as "dad"

He was never more pleased than when he received a letter or was visited by one of his children or grandchildren.

When our family was growing up, each in turn, sat upon his knee as he played with them and sang many songs to them. How dad managed to feed and clothe such a large family, no one knows, as we were always well provided for. Most of the years I spent at home, there were eight or ten or more at the table three times a day, and as crowded as we were, no stranger, preacher or peddler was ever turned away for a meal or a night's lodging, for which pay was never expected or accepted, so many never failed to stop as they passed our way.

Dad didn't have the advantage of schooling as we have today, yet he learned much by constant reading and was always well posted on current events. He was possessed of a keen mind and an extra ordinary memory and loved to sit and talk to friend or stranger far into the night. Dad was a lover of clean sports and of the great outdoors and things of nature.

If dad was sick or worried, no one knew it for he never complained. When he was forced to retire on account of his health, he spent much time in his garden and with mother's help, surrounded his home with beautiful flowers, which he was very fond of, yet he would pluck the choicest blooms and give them to an admiring small child, as many children would stop and chat with him, as he loved all children.

Dad never acquired any great amount of this world's goods. He always seemed satisfied with his lot and coveted no man's possessions, yet he was one of the richest men I have ever known.

Quoting from Luk 12-15--For a man's life consisteth not in the aboundance of the things which he passessth. A son.

Compendium of History Reminiscence and Biography of Nebraska-1912 Andy Hopkins

"Perseverance and integrity are the stepping stones by which many men have reached success. but of the early settlers in the west these characteristics were required in a greater measure than usually falls to the men of a more settled region. Andy Hopkins, an agriculturist of prominence in Antelope couny [sic], Nebraska, resides in Blaine precinct, and is one of those substantial citizens whose integrity and industry, thrift and economy have added so much to the material wealth and growth of Nebraska.

Mr. Hopkins is a native of Lafayette county, Wisconsin, born August 22, 1865, and is the son of Amos and Thankfull (Otiska) Hopkins, the father being a native of New York, and the mother of Pennsylvania. From Wisconsin, our subject with his parents moved to Illinois, where they remained, six months and in 1868, they came to Nebraska where they could get land cheaper. Mr. Hopkins' brother had previously taken up a homestead, it being the first homestead taken up in Antlope county, and Mr. Hopkins with his parents lived with this brother during the winter, when they took up a homestead in section five, township twenty-six, range five, (Bernett township) on which they built a log house, and lived here ten years. Their home was the stopping place for many coming to Nebraska in the early days, and it was known as the Half Way House.

April 16, 1884, Mr. Hopkins was married to Miss Minnie Nelson fourteen children have been born to them, as follows: Emma, Clyde, Andy, Hazel, Ernest, Harry, Edith, Ivan, Myrtle, Viola, and Harold. John deceased in 1902; Josie, deceased in 1892 and Willard, 1897.

Mr. Hopkinns [sic] had many hardships in starting out for himself, and among other experiences went through the hailstorm of 1895, losing his entire crops, and in 1894 the hot winds killed all of his crops. In 1907, Mr. Hopkins bought his present home of two hundred and forty acres, and it is a well improved farm and known as the Frisbec hometead [sic]. Here our subject and his family reside and enjoy the respect and esteem of all who know them."

MILLIE HOPKINS NELSON

Millie Hopkins, daughter of the late Crandal and Thankful Hopkins was born at Tilden, Antelope county, Nebraska, July 13, 1870 and departed this life at her home near Gordon February 23, 1937, at the age of 66 years 7 months and 10 days.

On December 14, 1892 she was united in marriage to Chris Nelson at Tilden, Nebraska. To this union nine children were born; Amos of St. Louis, Mo., Roy of Murphy, Oregon, Alvin of Gordon, Nebraska, Marvin of Denby, S. D., Mrs. Leona Coulthard of Hope, Idaho, Clifford Gardner and Carlyle of Omaha, Nebraska, and Bernard of Yakima, Washington.

Ten years ago she listened to the Gospel preached by John Good and Walter Denherdler. She choose to become a follower of Christ and live for eternal values.

While we are saddened by her death, yet we rejoice that she fought a good fight unto the end.

Though she now rests from her labors her life still lives and speaks to those who knew her.

Her death came as a shock to relatives and friends as she had been recovering nicely from a fractured limb received about a month ago.

Besides the devoted husband and children she leaves to morn her death seventeen grandchildren, one brother, Andy Hopkins of Neligh, Nebraska, and one sister Mrs. Lidia Minkler of Oakdale, Nebraska, and other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at the home of her son, Alvin Nelson, last Saturday and burial was made in the Gordon Cemetery.

May of 1986 I decided to write to all the people in Gordon, NE with the Surname of Nelson to see if I could find someone who could help me find information on my father's family.

Letter postmarked June 9, 1986 from Elwood or Helen M. Nelson {brother & sister}, HC 64, Box 18, Gordon, NE 69343--Two of the letters reached brother's of Helen Nelson who knew my grandmother Millie and her family.

Excerpts from letter.."We are Nelson's but no relation and lived just 2 miles north of Alvin Nelson. Alvin has a daughter named Helen and my name is Helen-we went to same school-so they called me big Helen & her little Helen. When your dad's parents weren't to good-the time Millie had broken leg, I worked for them. They went to the same church my mother went to. We were acquainted with the family for years...Your dad was quite a guy. I even went with him a few times. When he worked for Helen Nelson Swaynes dad Alvin.

**e-mail of July 11, 1999 from Beverly Schonewolf--"I finally got my approved Mayflower supplemental for Richard Warren through Jonah Hopkins. It was approved June 16, 1999, so you should be able to use my General Society #65029, State #3467 as a reference thereafter. They made several "corrections" and additions, including Providence VR 1:65, & RI VR 3:1:21, and RI Gen. Reg 3:301 and they wrote "Weak" beside Oliver Hopkins name."
