It is wonderful to learn about your history. Through researching like most of my family has done over the years I have found that there was more than one signer of The Declaration of Independence in our family history. I find it fascinating that this is the type of history in my lineage. Francis Hopkinson was a prominent person during these times. He was a signer of The Declaration of Independence in 1776. Francis Hopkinson was a political leader, judge, poet, songwriter, and a writer. Furthermore, little is known about his wife, and children but I have managed to find some information through the family records that has been kept all of these years. I find it interesting to write about my family heritage because I am proud of what my family history has done.
