Hopson WILLOUGHBY is found in 1870 Census for Iowa, Wayne County, Wright
What I know about Hopson is very sketchy. He was born 1820, KENTUCKY (but I
have no idea where) He was supposed to have left KY about 1839 to head west.
He was married to Matilda or Malinda WILLIAMS abt 1840.
HIs son DAvid WILLOUGHBY( my g-gf ) was born Wayne County 10/13/1856.
Their other children were James 1854, Nancy abt 1844, Sarah abt 1845, Lucinda
abt 1847, Cynthia abt 1849.
Hopson settled in Wilson County KS 1873, was a prosperous farmer there. He
returned to Iowa in 1901 to visit family. That is the last I know of him.
This is all I know. Hope this sounds familar to someone. I would love to
