Collecting Event Remarks: End of date collected range set to latest date of data entry for a cataloged item in this collecting event. according to Clench & Fuller: "Hopeton, or Hopeton's Landing, was about 10 to 15 miles up the Altamaha River from Darien, Mcintosh Co., Georgia. This was a plantation landing, and, like many others, was used when the larger rivers were the main source of transportation. Most place names of this type have long since disappeared."
