On ancestry, pull down search menu, click census, click US, wait a second, arrow past form to list of years, select 1830. Then on new form where it say lived in, type exact name of city or county and the state. Then check exact .
OK I will see if I can fugue this out, I did see on some kind of census page.. A William Hooper household members 3 Haywood , I just looked around looks like the town was full of only this family, lol.  Hoopers everywhere and related families
I went ahead and done research on the places birth a death for William and Nancy would have been called and changed to correct..
I love agitating other people into working hard while I goof off. (cackling fiendishly)
I worked all day on this man sometime this old research doesn't add up, if I ever put my information in a book it would have to be like gospel..

Have you proved you be related to this William


They say he isn't related to my line they say because Absalom Hooper was not educated that he wouldn't be the same line
I would like more research done
I'm gonna mook around on Absalom's pop Thomas. Let ya know if I find good stuff.
OK Thanks Eddie

My Hooper line was out of South Carolina and I have been told they were farmers. My maternal grandfather was Reece Eugene Hooper Jr, born 09/24/1891. His father was Reese Sr., born 02/09/1862.  Reese Sr was the son of Will and Catherine Hooper but I have NO information on them. That’s as far as I can get on my Hooper tree. I do know that it was also told that “All the Hoopers were alcoholics” in reference to my grandfather and his male siblings.
OK Pam Pearson Sam, I made a  profile for your family line I don't see a connection to my set the one's I'm kin to came from Jackson County area moved to Golden Grove Piedmont, Greenville County, South Carolina around 1920's now Absalom Hooper the Revolutionary War Soldier did live in Pendleton District, SC at one time but moved to North Carolina four 4 generations my family lived in Western North Carolina  when my grandmother Bessie Hooper was a small child they moved to Golden Grove Piedmont, Greenville County, South Carolina she married a Blackstone and then in the 1950's they her husband and some children moved to Florida my grandmother got sick and they moved back on the Family Golf Course in Piedmont, SC she died in 1963 at age 59 my dad married my mom in 1962 and I wasn't born to 1971 her line is Absalom Hooper Revolution War Soldier son William Hooper Esq, son Captain Andrew Dillard Hooper. son Michael Hooper. son David or Donald Wilborn "Webb" Hooper dau. Bessie Hooper Blackstone. We do have some family information that my grandmother had handed down to my dad about some family connections of the Hoopers in England but I don't know if I should share because I haven't seen any body else on Absalom Hooper's family page that has this information. My dad Donnie Joe Blackstone passed away and then my mother 5 years later and my sisters are so busy we just haven't looked it all over yet so I don't know what to share. My grandmother was the oldest of her line and was a member of Grove Station Baptist Church

Thanks for any help on our line.
