NOTES: the parents of Samuel HOPPER are unknown, but believed to be
Thomas HOPPER and Nancy STEWART. This Thomas was the son of William
Deacon HOPPER, Sr. and Mary Ann WRIGHT. It is also unclear which of
Samuel's wives mothered his children. One theory states that
Elizabeth died not long after she and Samuel were married, and that
all of Samuel's children were by his second wife.
