"Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower* and Some of His Descendants." New England Historical and Genealogical Register 102(1): 46-60. On p. 46, an editorial footnote to the title of the article:
 
I have no reason to believe that John Hopkins of Hartford was related to Stephen of the Mayflower. I have seen statements that he was the son of Stephen; but as Stephen does not mention him in his will and Bradford makes no reference to such a son of Stephen and no one has found any authority which is based upon any fact, I do not think that any faith can be placed in such statements. (Letter of T.H., 28 April 1908.)

 
Some believe John's wife is Jane STRONG, but there is no proof. (Sources: - 1)

The Doane Family, Vol. 2, Third Ed., 1976

 
Daniel Dona's marriages are not recorded in Eastham records. His 1st wife is believed by some genealogists to have been Constance Snow, daughter of Nicholas and Constance Hopkins, but no documentary evidence has been found. The assumption is based upon the names of two of his children: Constant (a son) and Constance (a daughter). The Society of Mayflower descendants has not accepted this assumption.
 
New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol 127 (1973) p. 102
 
Gilbert H. Doane, Editor Emeritus of the Register has called our attention to the erroneous statement in the first installment of the above article that Joseph Doane, husband of Mary Godfrey was a son of Hepzibah Cole Crisp Doan (The Register 126:136). The mother of Joseph Doane, son of Daniel, was Daniel's first wife, identity uncertain but presumed to have been Constant or Constance, daughter of Nicholand and Constance (Hopkins) Snow. Daniel Doane did not marry Mepsibah (Cole) Crisp until after 28 July 1682, when her first husband George Crisp died. George Crisp named her in his Will and made her executrix asking brother Israel Cole and his neighbor Goodman Daniel Doane "to be helpful to my wife as overseers." She was living 9 Oct 1712 when Daniel Doane called her "loving wife Hepsibah in his Will (See A.A. Doane, the Doane Family, 1902, pp. 26-30). The authority for nameing Constant Snow as the first wife of Daniel Doane appears to be a notebook on Eastham families kept by Josiah Paine, for half a century Town Clerk of Harwich. The notebook is now in the possession of the Eastham Public Library. Mr. Paine did not cite the sources of his information unless it came from individuals, so it may be assumed that he found some evidence for his statement; however no one has discovered where he found it. It should be noted that the Mayflower Society does not accept lines of descent through the first wife of Daniel Doane.
