Hi Suzy -

Oh yes - I've seen lots of variations of my maiden name on the various census'. Mine, so far, are originating in Lycoming, Sullivan and Northumberland counties.

My great, great grandfather was Peter Bert Hopfer. He was born in the 'town' of Northumberland and at age 7 (for some unknown reason) was with James Glidewell. We believe that the Glidewell's finished raising him, and this has made it especially difficult to trace him prior to 1860. His tombstone says that he was born September 6, 1828, but other sources, including the various census' have different ages for him. It is all very difficult and frustrating at times! :)

Thanks for responding.
