     In 1880, this may be the Zackrias P. Holland who was enumerated in Woodville, McCracken County, Kentucky, as the nephew of the head of household. He was 22 years of age, born c1858 in Kentucky, and was a laborer.2

     Z. P. Holland married Rutha Ludena Turner, daughter of George W. Turner and Elizabeth Susan Rives, on 16 August 1888 in Ballard County, Kentucky.1

     A Z P Holland Jr, born 13 Jan 1858, died 12 Feb 1889, but the memorial page note says "h/o L. P.", buried Holland Cemetery, Future City, McCracken County, Kentucky. But, it is possible he was married previously to his marriage to Rutha Lee. However no L. P. Holland is buried with him. Therefore, it is possible that the gravestone was misread, given there is no picture available of it.

     Z. P. Sr died prior to the marriage with Rutha Lee Turner so he cannot be her husband.3

     William Homes married Susan (--?--). I am unable to find a marriage record for them as of 25 Nov 2020.1

     I am unable to find William or Susan in the 1850 census under Homes or Holmes or anything similar as of 9 Dec 2020, but I did find Susan Holmes as a head of household, but am unsure if she is the right Susan.

     William Homes died before 25 October 1850 when his wife was enumerated as head of household.2

Arthur Hopkins1

M, #24736, b. 1690, d. 1767

Family

Elizabeth Pettus d. 1767
Children
Last Edited19 Aug 2021
     Arthur Hopkins was born in 1690 in England. I have found a birth record for an Arthur Hopkins, baptized 3 Mar 1698 in Wickwar, Gloucestershire, England son of Robert and Anne Hopkins. I've no idea if this is he.2,31

     From all records discovered so far and from all indications, it appears that Dr. Arthur Hopkins and Dr. William Cabell came to Virginia from England around 1723 and Arthur married Elizabeth soon thereafter.2

     Dr. Arthur Hopkins married Elizabeth Pettus between 1723 and 1725 in Williamsburg, Virginia Colony. The idea that the marriage occurred in Williamsburg comes from the fact that Captain Thomas Pettus, Jr., father of Elizabeth, died in Williamsburg and was buried in Bruton Parish Church there.4 However, I have not found a marriage record yet as of 8 Mar 2021.5

     On 18 March 1731, he purchased a 400 acre tract of land on the North side of the James River from Samuel Burks of St. James Parish, Goochland County in Hanover County, Virginia Colony, which was formed from New Kent County in 1720.6 The records of Hanover, New Kent and James City Counties were burned by the Federal Army in 1861-1865 so we cannot verify his birth or death from records.

     We do know that he was closely associated with Dr. William Cabell from 1731 until their respective deaths. In 1731, he purcahsed lands near Dr. Cabell from Dr. Samuel Burks, Dr. Cabell's father-in-law. They were Gentlemen Justices of Goochland County in 1737 and seem to have moved to St. Anne's Parish, Albemarle County about the same time.7

     On 4 August 1732, Arthur's first patent was for 400 acres of land on the South side of Rivanna River at Goochland County, Virginia Colony.8

     On 21 August 1734, he patented 2,000 acres on north side of James River above the Byrd on N. side of James R; at Ebenezer Adams, fork of Dog Creek on Col John Martin at Goochland County, Virginia Colony.9

     Arthur and Elizabeth had eight children: Samuel, Johh, Arthur, William, James, Lucy (the wife of George Robinson of Pittsylvania (County), Mary (the wife of Joseph Cabell), and Isabel.10

     On 20 July 1748, "he obtained another patent for 2,258 acres on Totier Creek.11

     On 13 August 1752, John Moore of Albemarle County conveyed to Arthur Hopkins of Goochland County, Parish of St. James Northam, 800 acres at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony, on the North side of the James River and on Totier Creek.12

     On 12 December 1752, he was appointed Colonel of Horse in Goochland by Robert Dinwiddie, Esq., His Majesty's-Lieutenant-Goveror, and Commander in Chief of the Colony and Dominion of Virginia.

     Arthur Hopkins left a will dated on 31 May 1765 in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony. Arthur Hopkins, in his will, names his legatees: wife Elizabeth to have slaves and use of plantation during life; son Samuel to have all the slaves in his possession; son John to have all land in Goochland County; son Arthur, to have all the slaves in his possession. Confirmed to married daughters and sons-in-law to have all slaves he had given them and to have twenty shillings for a mourning ring; son James and William to have slaves and 3,008 acres of land; daughter Isabella to have slaves and son-in-law Col. Joseph Cabell to act as guardian of Isabella. Witnesses: Jacob Moon, Elizabeth Moon (or Moore) and Claudius Bustin. He requests "No kind of funeral pomp other than the prayers of ye national church."

     Albemarle County probate records are locked and unavailable at this time so I cannot go to the original records for verification. They might be accessible at a Family History Center or affiliated library, but with all these facilities closed due to the pandemic I cannot access these documents.13,14,15

     On 16 September 1765, his last patent was for 1,417 acres of land in Albemarle County between Hardware and Totier Creeks which had been granted to Hardin Burnley, but forfeited for failure to pay the quit rent. The land patent books in Richmond show that from 1732 to 1754 he patented around twenty tracts of land, aggregating more than 12,000 acres in what is now Goochland Fluvanna and Albemarle Counties, which added to his purchased property aggregated over 30,000 acres.16

     Arthur Hopkins died in 1767 in Goochland County, Virginia Colony,10,13 and was buried near Scottsville, Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.

     "The Hopkins homestead and graveyard were situated on a beautiful rolling hill overlooking the James River which allowed a spendid view of the surrounding country for miles. Walter Lee Hopkins reports in 1928 the graveyard was a cultivated field with no evidence of Dr. Hopkins' gravestone."17

     His estate was probated on 10 March 1767 in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.14

     Mrs. Mary Rachel (Turner) Hopkins wrote Mrs. Margaret Isabella Hopkins Campbell, her niece, who is now at the advanced age of 87 and living in St. Louis, Missouri, that "Dr. Arthur Hopkins graduated from the 'School of Medicine and Surgery' in London and came to Virginia with Dr. William Cabell about 1720, settled in Goochland County and took up thousands of acres of land. He married here and he and his wife purchased their clothing from England."4

     William Hopkins was born circa 1740, son of Arthur Hopkins and Elizabeth Pettus, in Goochland County, Virginia Colony.2

     William Hopkins married Mary (--?--) circa 1757.5,6

     This source says William married Elizabeth Moon, the daughter of Jacob Moon.3

     On 31 May 1765, Arthur Hopkins, in his will, names his legatees: wife Elizabeth to have slaves and use of plantation during life; son Samuel to have all the slaves in his possession; son John to have all land in Goochland County; son Arthur, to have all the slaves in his possession. Confirmed to married daughters and sons-in-law to have all slaves he had given them and to have twenty shillings for a mourning ring; son James and William to have slaves and 3,008 acres of land; daughter Isabella to have slaves and son-in-law Col. Joseph Cabell to act as guardian of Isabella. Witnesses: Jacob Moon, Elizabeth Moon (or Moore) and Claudius Bustin. He requests "No kind of funeral pomp other than the prayers of ye national church."

     Albemarle County probate records are locked and unavailable at this time so I cannot go to the original records for verification. They might be accessible at a Family History Center or affiliated library, but with all these facilities closed due to the pandemic I cannot access these documents.7,8,9

     On 21 April 1779, William and his brother Dr. James Hopkins, signed the Albemarle County Declaration of Independence.10,2

     According to the cited source there were other children: Samuel, married 15 Mar 1798 in Fluvanna County to Amy Haden (1st cousin once removed) who was the daughter of Joseph Haden; Elizabeth P. who marred Jesse Haden (first cousin), son of Zachariah Haden; and Arthur, botn c1783 in Albemarle County and died before Nov 1829 in Kentucky. I do not believe any of these were children of William and Mary Hopkins, based on the thorough genealogical work performed by Walter Lee Hopkins, author of Hopkins and Related Families of Virginia.11

     On 17 February 1815, Williams Hopkins, Sr., conveyed to his son, William, Jr., 504 1/2 acres for "love and affection" at Albemarle County, Virginia.12
