Sentimental Sunday

Sarah Louise Bolen Hopkins was born 20 March 1875 to Jeptha Jacob Bolen and Mary Melvina Robison in Wood County, West Virginia.
Sarah married Samuel Sheridan Hopkins 31 July 1897. Sarah and Samuel had ten children.

Their second son, Oliver Orren Hopkins was born 2 September 1899 and married Rose May Stine 11 March 1919. Rose and Oliver went on to have ten children themselves. Their second son was John Sheridan Hopkins, my Grandpa.

This is my Great Great Grandma, Sarah holding my Grandpa John in October 1924. While cleaning out my Grandma's (John's wife) attic, we found my Grandpa's baby outfit.

A rather nice way to compliment the picture.

  3. I love your article with the history of your grandfather and his baby outfit. It is amazing that it is in one piece. Thank you.
