At the moment, I have not found a related Weiser Idaho based Hopkins who has gone to
Alaska or who had relatives in Pennsylvania and it appears unlikely that one for your time
frame will pop up.
- Have you looked in the Social Security death index for Hopkins dying in Alaska in your
time frame ? He would have had to have died after the index starts and SS payments had to
have been made to either him or his survors for it to show up in this index. If you can
pin down a death date from the SSDI, a state death index, if such exists, or a grave
stone, then you can check with a library in the area where he died or lived to see if
there's an obit with names of spouse and children and locations. Some local libraries
/ genealogy societies have started to place online indexes of obits. Worth poking around
and checking or asking for help where he died.
