Notes

Maria appears as Maria Hopkins in 1900 Federal census for Troy, Cheshire Co., NH, with daughter Mary Ellen and family. It also appears on her death certificate as her maiden name. No explanation of that surname is apparent. Could there have been a Hopkins husband between Whitney and Hill? What happened to Hill, freeing her to marry Blood?

Her marriages to Hill and Blood both are called her second. No explanation of that fact is apparent, either.
