Descendants of Adam Hope

Generation No. 1.

1. ADAM1 HOPE was born in Tennessee, and died January 18, 1831 in Woodville, Wilkinson Co., Mississippi. He married JANE GREADY December 23, 1813 in Woodville, Wilkinson Co., Mississippi.


As of 10/94, all I know about Adam Hope is that he lived in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, and that he married Jane Gready on December 23, 1813. Jane Hope appears alone on the 1850 census. Adam's death in 1831 is recorded in the Woodville Republican of January 22, 1831.
The Republican also lists him as the administrator of the estate of Nathaniel D. Hope, December 27, 1827. There is a Nathaniel Dryden Hope that died in 1825, place unknown as yet, could these be brothers? More info, Nathaniel Dryden Hope had a brother named Adam, and also a first cousin named Adam. Adam's will, transcription below, mentions as possible heirs "N D Hope". Adam's marriage to Jane Gready was "sealed to the Temple" of the LDS church at the temple in Ogden, Utah in 1984.

  • 2. iii. WILLIAM GREADY HOPE, b. May 29, 1816, Woodville, Wilkinson County, Miss.; d. Abt May 1897, Near Webster, Sumter County, Florida.
  • Generation No. 2.

    2. WILLIAM GREADY2 HOPE (ADAM 1) was born May 29, 1816 in Woodville, Wilkinson County, Miss., and died Abt May 1897 in Near Webster, Sumter County, Florida. He married CAROLINE BELLE NEWELL December 03, 1848 in Woodville, Wilkinson, Mississippi, daughter of William Newell and Adaline Dupuy.


    Most records of this person refer to him as William G. Hope. His middle name appears only on his military records. He volunteered for the Mexican war and served in the Wilkinson County Volunteers under the command of Jefferson Davis. The regiment was sent to Mexico, and after only 3 months William G. was discharged due to illness. After his military service, he married Caroline, daughter of a wealthy plantation owner in Wilkinson County, and went to New Orleans where he worked as a "clerk". He moved to Amite City, Louisana when his wife inherited 13 slaves, and farmed there until after the Civil War, then moved the family to McKinney, Texas where they had another farm.
    In 1889 or 1890, he went to Sumter County, Florida near his oldest son, George Cleveland Hope, apparently leaving Caroline in Texas, where she died in 1896. While living in Sumter County, he kept a diary which still exists. He also had extensive correspondence with the Goverment about his Mexican War pension, and this correspondence was obtained from Government archives. His gravestone is gone from the Stewarts Chapel cemetary, but family members are sure that is where he was buried.

    See also the last will and testament of William Newell for a further story of how the slaves happened to come to Caroline. It is a tale of deception and greed that had to be settled in court.

    In his last years he was living in a lean-to shack on his pension of $12 per month, plus what game he could find and his garden. He left only a shotgun (in possession of George Hope), a gold watch (in possession of Newell Brett Hope, Jr.), and a bird dog.

  • Generation No. 3.

    3. GEORGE CLEVELAND3 HOPE (WILLIAM GREADY 2, ADAM 1) was born October 02, 1849 in Woodville, Wilkinson, Mississippi, and died May 09, 1912 in Palmetto, Manatee, Florida.
    He married SARAH ELIZABETH BRETT January 19, 1881 in McKinney, Collin, Texas, daughter of Aaron Brett and Sarah Townsend.


    George was the oldest of the extensive Hope clan. He was a builder and a carpenter/cabinet maker. At age 14 he fought in the Louisiana home guard in the Civil War. He worked on his Father's farm until he married in 1881. His marriage to Elizabeth was opposed by his family, as she was working as a servant at the time. Soon after the marriage, George left for Villa City, Florida, where he found work and sent for his wife and young daughter, Lucy.
    Later, he bought a farm near Webster, Florida, and lived there until 1900, when he moved the family to Plant City. Some time later, he bought another farm at Lithia, Florida, then went to Palmetto to work in a cabinet shop.
    He died there from a stroke, and was buried in Plant City. A copy of his obituary in the Plant City "Courier" is in the Hope files.
    He was a big man, and several pictures of him show him working in his workshop. He once went to work in Miami, where he was offered a mile of beach, which he refused to buy, and that beach is now Miami Beach!
    From the files of the Leesburg (Florida) Public Library:

    George C. Hope purchased land with the following legal description:

    SE 1/4 of SE 1/4 Sec 36 T21 R24,
    Lake County Deeds, Vol 6 page 486

    Purchased from A. R. Gano on April 4, 1889. This is good evidence that the family moved from Villa City to Webster in 1889. A. R. Gano must have been a land speculator or developer, because he has many land transfers recorded in about the same time frame.

    Children of George Hope and Sarah Brett are:

Like many of the Hope family, he was a big man, and wore a cowboy hat. There is a picture of him in the family archives with Henry Huff, Newell Brett Hope, Jr. and George David Hope, Sr., taken in 1941.

    She was widowed in 1937, and was cared for by her daughter until her death. She never worked outside the home. She and Clara lived in various apartments in Plant City, always near her sister Cornelia Hope Huff, until Cornelia died in 1949, at which time them moved into the Huff home and lived with Cornelia's widower, Henry Huff, until he died in 1962.

He married LURA CAROLYN PEMBERTON June 01, 1926 in Tampa, Hillsborough, Florida, daughter of Orlando Pemberton and Sarah BARROW.


    Born on the family farm in Sumter County, Florida, with a mid-wife named Margarite Zeigler in attendance (per his written note). When he was a child, the family moved to Plant City, then later to a farm at Lithia. His father went to Palmetto to work in a cabinet shop, and died there when Newell was 16.
    He then went to work for the Tampa Gas Company. He married in 1926, and in 1931 he quit the Gas Company and moved to an 18 acre farm at Lithia (he still owned the old 80 acre farm some two miles away).
    In 1937 he started a country store and gas station on the farm, and operated it until he retired about 1965.
    Newell continued active in farming until about age 88 or 89 he when he could no longer drive the tractor. He cared for his wife until he was 94, then both of them were tended by grandchildren until his death in 1993 at the age of 98.
    He was not very sociable, and cared for the company of his family almost exclusively. He loved hunting and fishing, and these were his only hobbies and his only fun in life.
    He read the newspaper carefully every day and was very much aware of what was happening in the country, most of which he didn't like!
    He never left the State of Florida until 1967, when he and Lura visited his son Brett in Detroit, Michigan. He would not eat in restaurants, a foible related to his days fixing gas ranges in Tampa. He said that restaurants were so dirty that it was not safe to eat in them (and he was probably right) so when he travelled, he would carry a sandwich and eat in the car while others went into a restaurant.

  • 19. GEORGE DAVID6 HOPE, JR. (GEORGE DAVID 5, NEWELL BRETT 4, GEORGE CLEVELAND 3, WILLIAM GREADY2, ADAM1) was born June 19, 1955 in Plant City, Hillsborough, Florida. He married LESLYE GRACE ARMSTRONG January 01, 1981 in Plant City, Florida, daughter of Bishop(Methodist Church) Arthur Armstrong and Phyllis Schaffer.


    David was an electrician without a license, and worked as a helper for almost 20 years, because he refused to take the examination for a journeymans license.
    He was an avid fisherman and hunter like his father, and work was very secondary to his hobbies, therefore he is unable to provide for his family, and they exist mostly on the charity of his father and Leslyes family.

    Children of George Hope and Leslye Armstrong are:

  • i. PATRICIA ANN7 HOPE, b. October 23, 1982, Tampa, Hillsbourough Co., Florida.
  • ii. JAMES DAVID HOPE, b. January 06, 1985, Lithia, Hillsborough, Florida.

  • 20. CAROL6 HOPE (GEORGE DAVID 5, NEWELL BRETT 4, GEORGE CLEVELAND 3, WILLIAM GREADY2, ADAM 1) was born March 02, 1960 in Plant City, Hillsborough, Florida. She married (1) THOMAS WAYNE BOYD December 21, 1981 in Lithia, Hillsborough, Florida. She married (2) VICTOR CLAYTON BENNETT June 21, 1991 in Lithia, Hillsborough, Florida. She married (3) Kenneth Lastinger in Lithia, Hillsborough, Florida.


    Carol was christened "Carol Lucille Hope", but she has dropped the "Lucille". She had an early marriage that ended in divorce, but I can't remember his name. She is a small, red-head with freckles. She is very religious, belonging to the Church of God. She has a talent for picking the wrong men to marry!

  • Child of Carol Hope and Victor Bennett is:
