To the memory
Thomas Hopping
who departed this life
December the 22, 1825
aged 59 years 5 months and 22 days
Such was the friend whose loss we deplore,
The friends whose loss this consolation gives;
That though the much lov'd Father is no more,
In every good mans memory he lives.1
He, son of Samuel Hopping and Sarah (---), married Margaret Griswold Cook, daughter of Zebulon Cook and Mary Jones.2,3


Margaret Griswold Cook b. 20 Jan 1779, d. 29 Nov 1825
