I don't know if this will help but, here's my paternal lineage: (by the way, I was adopted; born John Michael Hopkins)
Me: John Michael Hopkins (b.26Oct1957)
John Basil Hopkins (b.3Feb1915-Lanark,Wisconsin, d.15Aug1964-Neenah,WI)
John Hopkins (b.5Oct1868-Lanark,WI d.9Oct1915-Lanark,WI)
Michael Hopkins (b.1836-Dublin,Ireland d.1Apr1896-Stevens Point, WI)
Laughlin Hopkins (data unknown-Ireland?); wife: Bridget Tighe
John M. (Hopkins)Crockett
ps I am considering changing my name back to Hopkins as I cannnot locate any other name-bearers in my fathers' lineage (my father had no brothers, nor did his father; I don't yet know about Michael or Laughlin Hopkins). I have named my son Michael Ian.
