1. is looking for info on Mary E. HAWKINS b. 1855? and married to John A. DIXON 11-10-1875, lived Milton, FL.

2. Joseph HAWKINS(1796-1837) was married to Letitia LAISHLEY in England; they had 6 children, the sons being Charles, John, James, and Richard. Thye came to America with their mother in 1846 after the death of Joseph. They first settled in OH where Letitia remarried Zebulon WICKS. This Hawkins line settled in Park Gibson, MS...does this story sound familiar to you?

3. Another great Hawkins family tale...3 HAWKINS brothers came to the US from Great Britain- Peter, William, and George. Peter married Rachel TORBERT in Linguard, Kent Co., DE- info needed on Rachel, especially the marriage date. The children of Peter and Rachel: Margaret, Elizabeth, William Alden.

    Union Couny(SC???)   Respond to

9.  Searching for the parents of my ggggrandfather, Hawkins HARRIS, 
    born~1800, d. ~1850, m. to Diana CRADLEBOUGH 11-13-1835 Madison 
    Co., KY.   Their children were Mary(Polly), Rebecca, William T.,
    and Susannah Price.  Records regarding Hawkins' father-in-law,
    William Cradlebough show Hawkins to be the son of Tyree HARRIS(2
    sources say Tyree HARRIS and Betsy HAWKINS of Rowan Co., NC- this
    hasn't been proven).  Would appreciate any info to help prove 
    this.  With a first name of Hawkins, there must be a surname to
    match somewhere.

You know you're a genealogy addict when...

You brake for libraries.
You hyperventilate at the sight of an old cemetery.
You would rather browse in a cemetery than a shopping mall.
You would rather read census schedules than a good book.
You are more interested in what happened in 1697 than in 1997.
Savage, Torry, and Pope are household names, but you can't remember what to call the dog.
You can pinpoint Harrietsham, Hawkhurst, Kent, but you can't find your state capitol on the map.
You think every home should have a copier and a microfilm reader.
You know every registrar of deeds in the state by name, but they lock the doors when they see you coming.
You store your clothes under the bed, because your closet is full of books and papers.
All your correspondence begins "Dear Cousin".
You have traced every one of your ancestors back to Adam and Eve, have it documented, and still don't want to quit!

Does this sound like any of us? :-)

Thanks to on the KY ROOTS mailing list for those words of (ahem)wisdom.
