Have you requested John S. Reed's DEATH certificate? It may give his mother's maiden name along with his father's name. Also check to see if he is a Civil War veteran.

I would also request Elizabeth Hopper's death certificate.

The death certificates should show the burial place. That could be helpful in locating other connected family members.

Do you know where the name of the cemetery where they are buried?

Could Martin Hopper have married two times? His second wife was Catherine MARTIN?? Her Children "could have been" Jane, John, Mary MARTIN. It appears John age 17 could have been his first wife's child. It appears to me that William Hopper and Caroline Hopper could be Martin and Catherine's children.

Anthony Felix come to the place in 1837, and in the next year purchased the furniture business of **Hopper & Kenney,** which he moved to the site now occupied by his son, W. H. Felix. He continued in business until 1866, when his son succeeded him, and in 1871 erected the present brick warerooms. Another wareroom is on Dorcas Street.
