Nellie died 11 October 1934 in Cambridge. Have her death certificate ordered. She may have been just visiting. She was buried in Portland, Oregon. Any information appreciated!

Thank you! I had found this information--have ordered a death certificate. This is a notice of her second marriage. I have a divorce listing for this marriage but none for Hopper. Trying to figure out what she was doing in Idaho. She was buried in Portland where she had lived most of her life.

There were and are lots of Hoppers in Washington County, ID. My father grew up there and had lots of Hopper friends. I even went to college, 1957-64, with several Hoppers from the area.

I expect she was visiting. Not really that old when she died.

I think her husband was Jacob E Hopper--found him listed as single in Washington County in 1940. She died in Idaho 1934, but the Idaho Archives could not find a death certificate for her. Sometimes I've found that death certificates were transferred with the body when it was sent to another state--she is interred in Portland, Oregon--but it isn't in the Oregon Archives records either. There was a brief obit in the Portland paper, but no mention of where she died. Jacob's parents (father was Moses) were in Portland, OR in 1930 before they were married. Think I will just put this one to bed unless someone has more information on Jacob E. Hopper of Cambridge! Thanks for the reply.

I'm not related to the Hoppers. Nellie Anderson Fletcher Fletcher Hopper is my 1st cousin 2x removed--she and my grandfather were cousins. Nellie's parents were Melissa Vannoy and Elijah Anderson. Melissa is my great grandmother's sister. Nellie's life was rather interesting--and I actually found living Fletcher relatives but no information yet received. She was widowed by husband #1, she divorced #2 (brother of #1) and Hopper was #3. I'm assuming it was Jacob E. Hopper--her Portland obit says J.E.--but I know he had a brother James--who was listed in Portland in a census. Do you have any record of which Hopper she married?
