Private Joseph Hopkins served from October 12 and 13, 1813 in Captain William G. Hepburn’s Company of the 2nd York Militia. 
On November 9, 1813, he made a war loss claim as a farmer of West Flamborough Twp. About July 20th, his wagon and harness had been taken by Sgt. Clarke of Capt. Crowder’s Co. of the 41st Regiment to Amherstburgh. His brother Ephraim had seen Sgt. Clarke in possession of the wagon. On October 3, 1815, he resubmitted his claim for a wagon and harness and 210 trees taken for the garrison at Burlington Heights. He also made a claim for losses to Indians. On April 2, 1814, he had a heifer taken from his field and killed, in May, a milch cow and another animal taken, and on July 5, a sheep. Clarkson Freeman of West Flamborough Twp. certified the claim and noted that he had seen the Indian horses in Joseph’s meadows and grain fields. 
On September 13, 1815, he certified the war claim of Samuel Price. 
In 1819 he was assessed in West Flamborough Twp. with 500 acres.
