Elizabeth Ann CRAMER
Husband:  Isaiah / Isaac HOPKINS
Birth:  1802/3, NJ
Occupation:  foundry worker
Marriage:  10 Jul 1824
Given Eliza's birthyear, I seriously doubt they married in 1824; the birthyear of her eldest child also supports a later year.
Wife:  Elizabeth / Eliza Ann CRAMER
Birth:  1810, NJ
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Isaac CRAMER / CRANMER (1785- ) David4, Jeremiah3, John2, William1
Mother:  Mary VANEMAN, d/o John VAN EMAN
born in NJ, possibly in Weymouth Twp., Gloucester Co., NJ:
1.  Isaac Cramer HOPKINS, b. 4 Jan 1829

born in NJ or PA:
2.  Ellen HOPKINS, b. 1830-35

born in Franklin Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA:
3.  Roxanna HOPKINS, b. 1834/5
4.  (Daughter) HOPKINS, b. 1835-40; d. by 1850

born in PA, presumably in either Franklin Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA, or Punxsutawney, Young Twp., Jefferson Co., PA
5.  John HOPKINS, b. 1844/5

Said to have had 14 children, but the census does not remotely reflect that number, unless she had a great many infants die young.

The censuses indicate that Isaiah was born in 1802/3 in NJ and that Eliza was born in 1810 in NJ.
They had their first child in NJ, so they cannot have married in PA.

8.  Anon.  1893.  Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania.  J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago. (online at www.chartiers.com).  Excerpt from p. 211:
J. HOWARD CRAMER, editor and proprietor of the Enterprise-Call, Burgettstown, is a son of E. V. and Susan (Weight) Cramer, and was born June 8, 1856, at Spruce Creek, Huntingdon Co., Penn.

The history of the family, of which this gentleman is a conspicuous and honored member, began with Isaac Cramer, who was born near Millville, Gloucester Co., N.J., in 1786.  He was the second child in a large family, and was of English descent, his father having emigrated to this country some time before, the exact date not now being known; but, at any rate, there is evidence that he served as a soldier in the American army during the Revolutionary war.  In 1807 Isaac Cramer married Mary Van Eman, who was born in 1783, a daughter of John Van Eman, a farmer, also of Millville, N.J.  Her parents had emigrated to this country from Wales.  After marriage Mr. Cramer learned the trade of an iron molder.  He was drafted and served through the war of 1812, and after the close of that struggle He moved to Cumberland county, N.J.  In 1832 he went to Lancaster county, Penn., fourteen miles southeast of Lancaster city.  Ten children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Cramer, of whom the following is a brief record...

(2) Eliza Ann was born in 1811, and married Isaiah Hopkins in 1826.  They afterward settled in Jefferson county, Penn.; fourteen children were born to their marriage...

There's no indication in the censuses that our subjects had 14 children.
