Email from Teresa Hemmings: Joseph Francis Stanley and Polly Jane Hopson were divorced, I'm not sure when. All of the children stayed with him. He was an elder in the church and the court awarded him full custody. My grandmother, Rosie, said that her mother had to sleep in the woodshed if she came to visit them, because her father wouldn't let her in the house. Someone had told him that she had been unfaithful to him and so he divorced her. In later years, before she died, he said he was sorry, that he should have believed her. He offered to make her coffin when she passed away, but her children said no.

Note on the information from Nancy Craft Long: " Both Littleton and Mary Emmaline are said to be buried the Hopson family cemetery, near Skeet Rock, VA. I have been to this cemetery, and found many of our Hopson ancestors graves, but time and weather have erased several of the oldest inscriptions, namely Littleton's and Mary Emmaline's."
