Addendum:

This is the land drawn by Lizinah Hopkins Barnhill as heir of Lewis Hopkins.
Who I believe was her brother. Evidently he and his father William Hopkins (III)
died at about the same time. See Division of the Lands of William Hopkins
and his son Lewis Hopkins in 1826. See Pitt Co. DB EE page 8.
I have not corrected the spelling and have tried to copy the deed as written.
Note the different spellings of Lizinah.
