1. My great great grandmother, Theodosia Pratt Blake, was his paternal aunt.

  2. There is a misprint in the biography. Richards Aunt Sarah married Absaloms brother Hopkins. The article states Hopkins was Richards brother.

    1. It is correct in the story. but I rewrote that section because there seemed to be some confusion. There are two Hopkins, the brother who was married to Sarah and arrived before Absalom in Alabama and Richard Hopkins son of Absalom and Mary Dickerson. He was named after his Uncle Hopkins.
