I don't find anything specific to SANDERSON. But for Amos HOPKINS, I find the following:
Amos L. Hopkins, Blacksmith and wagonmaker, P.O. Farragut, Iowa; born January 22, 1833, at Ellington, NY. At the age of six years, he moved with his parents to Summit County, Ohio, and resided there about ten years, when he - in company with his parents - went to Crawford County, Pennsylvania, where his parents both died. He was engaged in blacksmithing there for a time, but sold out and came to Hamburg, Fremont Co., Iowa, in 1875, and remained there about one year and a half, and then went to Phelps City, Missouri, remaining there about one year . He then came to his present location and engaged in blacksmithing and wagon making. He was married February 12, 1854, to Miss Jane SMITH, a native of Crawford Co., Pennsylvania, who died May 1, 1860, by whom he is the father of two children: Stanley S. and Harmogene W. (deceased). He was married a second time to Minerva A. SANDERSON, a native of New York, on July 17, 1862, by which union they are the parents of four children: Effie M., Willie W., Bertie F. and Estella C. Mr. Hopkins weighs 230 pounds, is six feet one inch in height, and attributes his size and good health to being an anti-tobacconist. (end)
