The Dream Team, the genesis generation began
May 27, 1869 with the marriage of Ned and Naomi
[Griffin] Hopson at Unionville, Massac Co., Il.
Nearly 3 years after Ned Hopson's discharge from 
the USCT, our family patriarch had left his Kentucky
home and relocated to Illinois. Eleven children would
be born, at least 1 to 2 years apart; 10 children
would survive. Great-grandfather had been a farmer
before he had enlisted in the army. He was injured in an explosion while on a military expedition. The injuries sustained there, entitled him to a lifetime pensioned. Naomi [Griffin] Hopson was widowed by his death, January 4, 1895, at age 54. She was pensioned until her death July 4, 1924, at age 71.
