Yesterday while i was doing some genealogy work, i found one of my 11th great grandmothers. Her name was Bethia Hopkins. She married Samuel Stocking in Connecticut. I think this is really neat because Bethia has been on my favorite names list for quite some time. Bethia can be a variation of the Hebrew Bithia meaning "daughter (worshiper) of Jehovah or from the Scottish Beathag meaning "Life".
