1.I'm looking for anyone who is related to, or knows information about my grandfather HALKARD ASBURY HAWKINS. He was born April 6, 1909, possibly in Richland County, SC. He died September 27, 1946, possibly in Alexandria, VA or Washington D.C. He was a tailor, and a Republican National Committeeman. He spent time in the military with the 2nd Infantry Division. He married Julia Margaret Wessinger, and had 5 children. His father was Hugh Algernon Hawkins, a farmer and former constable of Blaney SC. Hugh Algernon's father was William Jasper Hawkins.

2. J. W. (Doc) Hawkins was a doctor supposedly from Springfield, Illinois. He had a daughter Margaret E. born in November 1860 in Illinois. He and daughter moved to Guadalupe County, Seguin, Texas, and he married Mary E. Springs (daughter of Samuel Lewis Springs and Mary Jane McBride) in March 1872.

3. Are you familiar with the Hawkins-Hackleman line? Isaac Hackleman and Elizabeth Hawkins, born in the mid to late 1700's in particular...the only child I have for them is Anna Hackleman. But I still don't have any dates on her either. I also have a few other Hawkins' in my file: Charles Hawkins m. Ann Marlin - both would've been born in the early 1800's. Ann's parents died in Franklin County, IN. Florence Ida Hawkins ( m. Robert Porter Ailes - both born in Franklin County. I don't have her parents. Robert Hawkins (11 Aug 1932, ?? - ) m. Neva Thompson (7 Feb 1934, ?? - ) - no locations - I have their children. I don't believe the above three Hawkins are directly related to me, though. Can you help? Please write Ken LaMont.

4. I have a DEBRA HAWKINS b.07-14-1743....who married my (many greats) grandfather...JEREMIAH WINCHESTER WILLIAMS. They married in 1757, Debra was 14 years old when they married. they lived in BOONESBORO KENTUCKY. I have more information if this interests anyone,please email me here.

5.My information on my ggrandmother, which was gathered at her death in 1942, shows her father to be Robert Andrews of St Clare County Mo and her mother to be Mary E. Grant. I was told later that Ida's father was Giles Grant. Ida had one son whom she named Giles. I am enclined to believe that her father's name WAS Giles because AIS Missouri Census index for 1870 census shows Giles Andrews as reciding in St Claire County. Any help appreciated. Please contact this researcher.

6. The name John must have a genealogy curse on it. I'm looking for the ancestors of my gggrandfather, John William Hawkins.

9. I am Keith E. Spaulding, my grandmother was MATTIE PEARLE HAWKINS. Mattie's parents were JOSEPH HAWKINS and DOCIA MARTIN both born in KY. In the late 1800s Joseph Hawkins may have moved his family to IN, and settled in McLean, IL. Mattie married Alonzo SPAULDING about 1903 in McLean, IL. Mattie may have had two sisters Oda and Gin. The COFFEE (sp) is some how connected to the sisters. About 1890 my grandfather Alonzo left Woodford Co. KY and went to Jennings County, IL where several of his Spaulding kin were farmers. Lucretia Spaulding married Enoch Needham 17 Aug 1832, Joseph Spaulding married Sarah Needham 9 Feb 1826, Betsy Spaulding married Alfred Chandler, John Spaulding married Jane Bland, 6 Jan 1830, Nancy Spaulding married Levi Buchanan 4 April 1844, and on the same day Cella Thompson married James Spaulding, and many more all of Jennings Co. So far I have failed to locate Mattie's parents. If you recognize any of the above information I would be happy to exchange family information. Please contact me here.

10. My Harford Co. MD Hawkins is Nicholas who married Mary Chalk in the First Baptist Church of Baltimore Co. in 1799. Nicholas had four children that I am aware of, Elizabeth who married my great great grandfather John Burns Johnson... they settled in Upper Crossroads. Charles who apparently died youg, and I believe the other two were John and Rebecca. Elizabeth and John Burns Johnson were buried in a Johnson family graveyard now in extreme disreapair in the back yard of some unrelated person's house in Upper Crossroads.... Charles eventually moved to Baltimore where I lose track of him..... Nicholas Hawkins died sometime around 1813-15 in Harford Co., but I do not know where he was buried.. His will may be found in the County Courthouse in Bel Air.... Nicholas Hawkins I believe to be the Nicholas Hawkins who was one of the sons of John Hawkins of Garrison Forest in Baltimore Co., MD... this Nicholas being born in 1753.. and John Hawkins was a son of Joseph Hawkins... Joseph having moved from the banks of the South River in Anne Arundal Co., MD to Garrison Forest when his younger brother Matthew died and left him land tract 'Brother's Kindness' there... Joseph married Elizabeth the widow of Christopher Rowles Jr. of Anne Arundal Co... after serving as one of the administrators for Chris's will... Joseph's son John married Mary Simpkins... John and Mary were members first of St. Paul's P-E Parish, on Liberty Road Baltimore Co until St. Thomas's P-E Parish was split off from St. Paul's whereafter the family belonged to St. Thomas's in Garrison Forest.... Joseph Hawkins's father was another John Hawkins who was allegedly born in England, and settled by the year 1661 or earlier along the West River and Ceadar Creek in Anne Arundal Co., MD.... I do not know the name of this first John Hawkin's wife. See any relatives in common here? Please write Joe to compare notes.
