My grandfather Roy Dennis Hopgood was born in Morganfield, Union Co. KY on 23 Nov 1888. He was the son of Henry Hawkins Hopgood (10 Aug 1868-12 Aug 1949) & Alice/Allie Rudd (29 Sep 1867-24 Jul 1947). Both of his parents were also born in Union Co. KY.
George G.Hopgood was the father of Henry H. born 21 May 1835 in Morganfield, Union Co. KY died 25 Feb 1910 Morganfield, Union Co. KY, buried with second wife in Little Bethel, Union Co. KY. I found his grave site with the help of a book by Peyton Heady.
Sarah E. Snyder was the first wife of George G. Hopgood and mother of Henry H. Born c1841 (also have the birth year of 1837). I have no idea who her parents were, and I have five different locations of her birth place. Her marriage record has IN, census OH and three death records of her children give PA, OH & KY. So really need help on my Snyder line.
Daniel Hopgood was the father of George G. Hopgood. According to census born in VA 1788. He was a cooper by trade and died in Union Co. KY about 1866. His wife's name was Martha born in NJ 1790 (according to census). Said Daniel was the executor of the estate of a Wm. Hopgood in 1837 in Union Co. KY. Would like to prove the relationship with this man. Believe Daniel belongs to the Hobgood family of Norfolk Co. VA.
My great-grandmother Alice/Allie Rudd's parents were Samuel Alexander Rudd born 14 Feb 1837 Granville Co. NC and died 8 Jul 1882 Morganfield Co. Union Co. KY and her mother was Mary Ann Taylor born 11 Nov 1838 Union Co. KY and died 25 Nov 1926 Morganfield, Union Co. KY.
The Rudd family I need the least amount of help, we can get that line back to NC to VA to England. Roger line back to NC to Joseph Rogers born c1749.
Taylor line--Mary Ann Taylor was the daughter of Aaron Taylor born 11 Oct 1813 Russellville, Logan Co. KY died 23 Mar 1857 Morganfield, Union Co. KY. Found his death date on L.D.S. film. Her mother was Nancy Gist born 24 Sep 1818 Morganfield, Union Co. KY and died 29 Jul 1879 Morganfield, Union Co. KY. I have a copy of their marriage bond from L.D.S. film. Now on the Gist family, there is a lot of published material. And we have the line back to the emigrate. On the Taylor line can go back to only grandfather of Aaron--Chapman Taylor born c1748 died 1823 in Limestone, AL his wife Julia Ann.......?. Story is that this is the same Taylor family to which the President Taylor belonged.
Aaron Taylor's parents were Joshua Taylor born 1791 in Warren Co. GA & died 1852 Morganfield, Union Co. KY, mother was Mary Elender Cooksey born 1795 Charles Co. MD. Her Cooksey line back to early Charles Co. MD, oldest known Cooksey to me--Samuel Cooksey b. c1650 Charles Co. MD died 1709 Charles Co. MD, his wife Christian Mary Elizabeth Tennison.
The help I would most appreciate would be the names of the parents of Sarah Snyder.
Thank you for your time.
