Moses Treadway HOPKINS
Elizabeth BROWN
Elizabeth MILES
WARNING:  These may be two (or three) different men.  I'm simply trying to authenticate the person of Moses Treadway HOPKINS, for whom there is perishingly little in the way of records, not to mention some that appear fabricated.  At the moment, I'm just using this page to "park" what records I can find, so consider this page highly tentative.
Husband:  Moses Treadway HOPKINS
Birth (based on census):  1786/7, VA
Death (based on census):  1850-60, presumably in Carroll Co., VA
Birth possibly:  1792, Buckingham Co., VA
Death possibly:  7 Oct 1865, VA
Disposition possibly:  Blandford Cemetery, Petersburg City/County, VA
Occupation:  wagonmaker
Marriage-1:  3 Apr 1816, Botetourt Co., VA
Wife-1:  Elizabeth BROWN
Birth:  ca. 1797
Marriage-2:  17 Nov 1842, Halifax Co., VA (Surety: Nancy MORRIS)
Wife-2:  Elizabeth MILES / MILLS
Others:
The relationship of these three to our subject is unclear, but it seems likely that Martha is his widowed daughter-in-law and that Lucy and John are her children.  Alternatively, Martha could be a daughter with his first wife, while Lucy and John could be children with his second wife.

Moses T Hopkins 63 M   waggonmaker?   Va
Martha A   " 26 F       NC
Lucy A     "  4 F       Va
John W     "  3 M       NC
The question here is whether the two youngest children are Martha's siblings (from her father's second marriage) or her own children, in which case, the next question is whether Martha is Moses's daughter or his widowed daughter-in-law.  Based on Martha's birthplace, she is most likely Moses's daughter-in-law.

6.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, so presumably Moses is deceased, but I can't find Martha and the children, either, which suggests Martha may have (re-)married, so all three would be found under a different surname.
