Wedding: A marriage record for Jim & Cindy has not been located in Harlan County records but their daughter, Lula, had written down some information for one of her nieces and stated they were married Christmas 1885. Emma Taylor Hopkins noted they were married at Wallins Creek.

Residence: 1885 1901, Wallins Creek, Harlan County, Kentucky. Jim & Cindy both lived in Harlan County, Kentucky at the time of their marriage and continued to live there from their marriage in 1885 until about 1901.

Residence: 1901 to 1919, Brodhead, Rockcastle County, Kentucky. 169 Sometime between 1900 and 1902, Jim & Cindy moved to the Brodhead area of Rockcastle County. Jim's brother, Lum, and his family also moved to Rockcastle County around the same time. Until about 1919, Jim & Cindy lived in a house on what is now KY 1326 [Old Brodhead Road]. They then moved to a house on US 150 at Gum Sulphur [between Brodhead & Crab Orchard].

According to Jim's niece, Cindy Hopkins Saylor, the house on Old Brodhead Road had been used during the Civil War and, when they moved in, there were still blood stains on the upstairs wall and porch where wounded soldiers had been carried in and laid down.

[This photo of the house on Old Brodhead Road was taken by Elmer Henry Hopkins (son of Jim's cousin, Stephen Henry Hopkins) when he visited them in 1909.]

Residence: 1923 1946, Warren County, Ohio. In about 1923, Jim & Cindy sold their property in Rockcastle County and moved to Warren County, Ohio. They bought a farm near Blanchester and moved their belongings from Kentucky to Ohio on the train. They lived in two houses on that farm on Templin Road. The first was a two story brick house that had been a stage coach way house. [This photo of the house was taken in 2001 when some of their granddaughters visited the area.]

Later, they built a house on the same farm and that is where they were living at the time of Jim's death in 1933. The farm was in Warren County, Ohio in Harlan Township. Lucinda continued to live there for several years after Jim's death but moved back to Kentucky about 1946.

Family Reunion: 1932, Warren County, Ohio. In the summer of 1932, all of Jim & Cindy's living children (except for oldest son, John) were together at their home near Blanchester, Ohio. In addition, 8 of their grandchildren were also there.

Residence: 1946 1957, Wallins Creek, Harlan County, Kentucky. On 9 Dec 1946 and 7 Jan 1947, Cindy sold the property in Ohio. She & her sister, Sarah [who had lived with Cindy since the death of her husband in 1933], moved back to Wallins Creek to the property where they were raised into a "new" house their brother, Henry, had built on that property.

[It's unclear exactly when they moved back to Wallins Creek - possibly several years before selling the property in Ohio.] Cindy inherited the Wallins Creek property from her brother, Henry & his wife, Elizabeth. Henry's will specified the property could be used by his wife for her lifetime but could not be sold as it was to pass to his sister, Lucinda Hopkins, after Elizabeth's death. Cindy and Sarah moved their belongings on the train just as Jim and Cindy had done when they moved to Ohio.
