I'm researching Fones in Erie Co., NY trying to connect them to my Hopkins from Springville, Erie Co., NY. I have found many Fones posted on www.findagrave.com
including William & Dorcas Sherman Fones.
John Lyman Hopkins b1841 NY never married but had a child with a servant girl named Elizabeth Fones who was working in the Noel A. Hopkins (b1803) household in Little Valley, NY where John Lyman Hopkins was residing in the early 1860's. The boy was named Milo Fones b1861. All of these folks ended up in Indian Creek, Alpine, Kent Co., MI.
Do you have any Hopkins in your tree or any of the following surnames: Moore, Bryant, Horton
