I'm looking for more information on Ann Jackson born in Virginia, some census records state Pennsylvania, in Aug 1821. She was "stolen as an orphan" and sent to Ohio to be adopted by a family named Smith in 1828 (at the age of 7). She married twice: once to George W Hopkins (1820-1843) with 1 daughter, Mary Jane Hopkins (1842-1930), and secondly to Lewis Mills of Morgan county, Ohio (1814-1880) with 8 children. I don't know why Ann would think she was stolen as an orphan, but she may have been either given up for adoption or orphaned. If you have any info on her birth family or circumstances, please reply to thread or message me. Thank you!
