    I am your mother’s friend from Madison. I am researching my family tree. My mother’s family came from England and Scotland, and my father’s family from Bohemia resided in Highland, Muscoda, and Montford. My great grandfather married a Scottish girl, Josephine Hopkins. Stephen Hopkins was a passenger on the Mayflower. I see the name Hopkins in your family tree.
