He was the son of Anna Nesser Hopkins, sister of the Nesser brothers,

and Otto F. Hopkins, who were married in Columbus in 1901.

Ted Hopkins is the nephew of the famed Nesser brothers.  Every other source

has some guy named Edward Hopkins, from Canton, Ohio who had no connection

to the Nesser family.  Familysearch.org has the family relationship information.

Also, Rose Nesser's daughter corroborated the evidence.
