I am seraching for information about Hopkins who suposedly moved from Mecklenburg County, VA down to Granville County, NC in the late 1700s. One of these was Benjamin Hopkins and his son Richard. Records list Benjamin, Joseph, James, and William Hopkins who all conducted land transactions in the area near Taylor's Ferry along the Raonoke River in Mecklenburg County in the 1700s. A Benjamin Hopkins later showed up in Granville County and finally in Montgomery County NC. I am trying to either prove of disprove that this is the same person. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
