Edward HOPPER
Susanna NEFF
Husband:  Edward HOPPER
Birth:  ca. 1770s, Ireland
Death:  Nov 1820, Franklin Co., OH
Marriage:  1 Aug 1805, Hardy Co., VA [now WV]
Wife:  Susanna NEFF
Birth:  1781/2, Hampshire Co., VA [now WV]
Death:  2 Jun 1867, Franklin Co., OH
Disposition:  buried Alton Cemetery, Franklin Co., OH
Other Spouse:  m2. 1823, Franklin Co., OH, Henry SLY
Father:  Jacob NEFF (1760-1849)
Mother:  Margaret JONES
Children:
born in (W)VA:
1.  Mary HOPPER, b. ca. 1807; m. 27 May 1824, Franklin Co., OH, Thomas WILCOX (1803-    )
2.  Solomon HOPPER, b. ca. 1808; m. 9 Dec 1833, Franklin Co., OH, Sarah Ann MICKEY (1812-    )
3.  John HOPPER, b. 1809/10 {1850: 40, VA; 1860: 35, VA}

born in Franklin Co., OH
4.  Margaret HOPPER, b. 1809/10 {1850: 40, OH}; m. 28 Sep 1832, Franklin Co., OH, Samuel FLEMING (1800-    )
5.  Alexander HOPPER, b. ca. 1815; m. Sarah __?__ (1819-    )
6.  Edward HOPPER, b. 1820 {1850: 30, OH}

We know from the tax rolls that Edward was in Franklin Co. by 1810, so I have no explanation for John's birthplace or age, for that matter except that they moved in 1810.  Note that John never married, never left home, and was never enumerated as having an occupation, so it seems likely that he had some kind of disability.  Margaret may have been fibbing about her age in the census, but if born earlier, it raises a question about John's birthplace.
