Don't know how much the researcher has on this Hopper family. They were
looking for the death date and place of Charles and Betsy. History says he
came to Baxter County, AR 1873-1876.

Thanks for the info.

John and his family are still in GA in 1870.
She and their children are listed in the 1880 Baxter County.
It would seem she died after 1892.

NO Sarah, either I missed her or the stone was unreadable. That may be why
the death date for her was lissted as 1885 instead of something after 1892.

This research was interested in Burton Duncan, too.

Thanks again.
