Karen, I think it depends on (1) your priorities and (2) your choice of strategy. Priorities -- if what you really want to do is get all your research onto WikiTree, then you might want to consider turning your ancestry material into a GEDCOM and loading it to WikiTree. HOWEVER, at best, that produces a lot of garbage code in each profile that you have to fix manually, and you'd spend a lot of time doing that. My hunch is your top priority would be to get others aware of your brick wall. Easiest thing there is to manually create a few key WikiTree profiles. I started the process for you by creating one for Samuel Hopkins (Hopkins-10413) from your information. That can be a good intro to WikiTree for you -- look at the material in edit mode and you'll see how I turned your ancestry link into a citation tied to each fact. You'll see this is different from Ancestry because we use complete sentences and paragraphs and try to explain things! But now there's a link to Ancestry. I think you need a subscription to make the link work, but meanwhile the facts are there. NOW that means anyone searching for Samuel Hopkins on WikiTree will find yours and if they have information they can add it. (BTW, look on the right side where you ask to be put on the trusted list -- click on that link and I'll receive a request and make you a profile manager of the profile.)
Strategy -- sort of covered above -- what are you trying to accomplish? Assuming it's to address the brick wall, the best strategy is to get key profiles available. If I were you, the next step would be to do one for the wife. Then the children. Most people by this point would then be tempted to fill in the line of descent from him to you, but that's not actually needed.
Hopkins is not an unusual name in Maryland -- we do have the University after all -- so I'm surprised that your Samuel isn't already there, and not already linked to anyone. But it's got to be just a matter of time!
