Thank you so very much for taking the time to clearly correct the record of the MANY errors regarding Stephen HOPKINS, his ancestry, and descendants. Too, I appreciate your humor in the telling....
Always find it amazing that folks actually post what is so blatantly untrue (birth after parents' deaths, et al) when, often, the truth is easily found ... with due diligence.
Thank you for yours!
I descend from John HOPKINS' 1574 marriage to Agnes BORROWE and their child Alice (1578-1618) who married John GILBERT 1606 Bridgwater, Somersetshire, England.
Stephen HOPKINS, child of John and his second wife (m. 28 Jul 1579) Elizabeth WILLIAMS, and half-brother of Alice (my 10th-great-grandmother), was the Mayflower immigrant.
My research on Alice and her family has been greatly enhanced by the scholarly research on Stephen.
Thank you for your work and for sharing it with us all.
