     At the 1920 census, the family is living in Manhattan, NY. His father was born in Maine, so he may be one of the Maine family.The family is not found in any other census.A Stephen W. Hotchkiss is found in later documents. The general conclusion is that this family is Hotchkiss.

M, (1795 - )
     Leonard Hotchkins was born in 1795 at NY, USA. He married Mary Unknown at NY circa 1834. Leonard Hotchkins was a Farmer circa 1850. He appeared on the census of 1850 at Genesee Falls, Wyoming County, NY, USA.

     We do not have information on Leonard's parents or background but he must have been one of the earliest to enter New York if census information is true that he was born in the state in 1796. A Leonard Hodgkins appears in Onondaga, Onondaga Co., NY in the 1840 census and the 1880 census. At the 1880 census, he is 74 and his wife Cathern is 72; both born in NY. They have a daughter age 30 and a grand daughter, Maud, age 3. It is unlikely that this is the same person.
