Mr. HOPKINS, owned Cotton Gin in Hamlin abt. 1920s

Is there any history on the town or old newspapers that might have information on a Mr. Hopkins, who reportedly owned a cotton gin in Hamlin until about 1924-25.

He left Hamlin and moved to Water Valley in Tom Green Co. around that time. There is a plain marker in the Water Valley Cemetery that says simply "Mr. Hopkins." I am trying to find out what his name was, where he was born, age, etc.

Mr. Hopkins is buried next to his wife, Essie Hopkins, who died in early 1931. All I know is that he preceded her in death.

Any little bit of information would be most appreciated.
