8.Looking for information about the marriage between William HAWKINS and Sarah ? (maiden name unknown). I believe this would have been in the early 1800's, but I have no dates on these folks. They went on to have several children that I know of: Elmyra Jane, John, Henry, Steve, Amos, Jim, Mary Ann, and Elizabeth. Elmyra Jane HAWKINS later married Isaac BROOKS, and had several children: Nora, Etta, Isaac, William Walter, Sheldon, and India Ola (some references are India Nola). India Ola BROOKS was born on Feb 2, 1864. These children were probably born in that period, so their parents were probably born sometime in the 1830's or 1840's. Please contact Joan Mathew.

9.I am trying to find the parents of Samuel Hawkins...... b: ca. 1850 ? m: Mary Martin (when? Where?) d: ????

Matt b:??????? and possible there was also a son Clarence............ Can you help fill in the blanks? Please contact Janet with some good news.

10. Searching for parents of John Hawkins born late 1780's or early 1790's, he died 1848. He was born in Cheraw District, later named Darlington District, SC. John was married to Lydia Sellers who died in 1860. John and Lydia are my g-g-g grandparents. Their children were Elizabeth (married to Turner Mcinvaill), Sarah, Constance, John Jr. (married to Martha Ann Golden), William (married to Mary Jumper), Thomas (married to Hannah Boyse), and Daniel (married to Martha Byrd. Daniel and Martha are my g-g grandparents. Have much information up to the present, but can't get back any further. John Hawkins also had a brother named Zachariah and possibly more siblings. The parents of John and Zachariah may have come from Virginia in the early 1700's to South Carolina. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please write Jeffrey S. Hawkins.

12. I have some Hawkins from TN. If you are interested please let me know. G.T. Hawkins m. Elizabeth Givens. Thanks,Neewollah

13.Here's my line, thus far, from my grandmother: Mary Elizabeth Hawkins, born Detroit 1890, died L.A. 1966, daugher of: Elizabeth Sloan, born Co. Down Ireland 1857, married and died in Detroit(d. 1924)and William Hawkins, born Detroit 1858, died Detroit 1925.

William was the son of: Ann Clark, born Co. Down, Ireland circa 1828, died Detorit 1861 Thomas Hawkins, born Co. Down, Ireland circa 1827, died Detroit 1905.

William was the son of: Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, born Ireland circa 1804, died Detroit? John Hawkins? Don't know too much about that last generation yet. 1870 census shows widowed Elizabeth living with Thomas and William. City directories for 1873-1875 show Elizabeth as "widow of John" still living with them. 1875 also shows Celia Hawkins, "widow of Michael," living with them. Please contact Pat Mullen.

14.Always glad to hear from other Hawkins's , my line starts in VA>NC>SC. MO. Until a few years ago only knew that my g-g-grandfather came to Crawford Co.,Mo. about 1830,his name was Joseph Hawkins of SC. didn't know where. Then thanks to some wonderful Genealogly Cousins was able to fill in most of my history,even going back to Sir William Hawkins,brother to Sir John Hawkins of England.As always there are blank places so have to keep looking and some info needs checking.

Here's how my line goes-- My father- Phillip Grundy Hawkins Jr-b.1902,St. James,MO.-M- Eulah Marie Driver. His Father- Phillip Grundy Sr.b.1870-St. James, MO.- M- Anne May Richards.His father Phillip Eaton Grundy ( known as PEG Hawkins)b.1833-St James, MO.- M- Susanna Elizabeth Tallent. His father Joseph Carter Hawkins b.1796-Greenvillie,SC -M- Elizabeth Phillips. His father William Eaton Hawkins Sr. b.~1790 Lunenburg, VA.-M- Catherine Bolling?--his father Joshua Hawkins b.1725-Prince GeorgeCo. VA.-M-Sarah Cook. His father Micheal Hawkins b.1696- Prince George,VA.-M- Agnes Eaton. There is more but this much has been pretty much found true. William Eaton Hawkins Sr. (known as Eaton) Went from VA. to Rutherford Co. NC. then Greenville, SC. he had a very large family 16 Children. Some went to TN., KY.,GA.,AL., and 4 brothers we know of came to Mo, around Crawford an Pheleps Co., between 1816 to 1830.William Eaton Jr., Solomon, Joseph Carter, and Berryman.All had large families; almost every family had these names in it so very hard to keep straight. Some of these families went to TX. and West about the time of the Civil War. Have been gathering quite a bit of info on these families and will be glad to share. For more info, please contact Eula J. Dennis

Here's a helpful link for those who might have had an ancestor who was incarcerated at Andersonville during the Civil here.

"My maiden name is Hawkins and I've been recently diagnosed with hemochromatosis, a genetic condition that causes me to absorb iron. It is fatal, if not treated and the way it is treated is to have blood taken out. A normal person may absorb between 10 - 20% of iron, but the automatic regular in a hemochromatois patient is inactive and I would absorb 80 - 100% iron. The body then starts to store iron in the major organs and joints and can cause a number of major diseases because you literally start to rust from the inside out. Genetic testing has shown that both my parents carried this gene. It has been found in people of Celtic descent (English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh) more than other ethnic groups. Do you know of anyone in your Hawkins family that has this? Check out the website here for more information." This was sent by a Hawkins researcher who asked that this be brought to your attention...please protect your health!
