It started 20 years ago as a genealogy look-up request. Then it became curiosity....now it is obessession. As of this date I am 165 people away from identifying every person in Hopewell Churchyard! (Recent Burials (last 75 years) not included due to privacy)
And I just found the only person I am distantly related to.
I began by looking up the Smith family for a lady in FL. I found that this family was related to this one and then they were related to this one and I had the idea that everyone in that cemetery was related somehow to each other. So I began to search. I have gathered info here and there, now I am going through every census and marriage and id-ing the last 165 people.
Would anyone out there be interested if I decide to publish this? Anyone out there who is related to some one that would like to put their 2 cents in? This is the most facinating cemetery I have ever worked with!!!! I feel I know these people from Gavin Mitchell 3 Oct 1820 to Nettie Harper who wrote a wonderful journal.
If you are interested just drop me an e-mail. Include Hopewell in the subject.
