Residence: 1830 - abt. 1865, Mulberry Gap, Hancock County, Tennessee. Based on Census records, Stephen and his family were living in Claiborne County, Tennessee in 1830 & 1840. In 1850 & 1860, they were living in Mulberry Gap in Hancock County. Hancock County was created in 1844 from Claiborne and Hawkins Counties so they were likely living in Mulberry Gap all that time and the county name just changed. The Hancock County Courthouse burned in 1885 and again in 1930 so very few records prior to 1930 exist.

Residence: ca 1865, Harlan County, Kentucky. Stephen and Rachel moved their family to Harlan County sometime after 1861 and no later than 1865 as their daughter, Calvina, was married in Harlan County in 1865.

Extra Fact: Stephen & Rachael Hopkins raised several of their grandchildren, including daughter, Eliza's sons, William Columbus and James Arton.
