Tradition says that he went to California during the gold rush and returned with a flower sack full of gold and may have buried it on the Hankins homeplace. In 1858 he owned land in Jefferson Co., Arkansas (later part of Cleveland Co., Arkansas).

Research Notes: In the 1850 census, William and his family are living with his father.

The included photo is believed to be of him. However, there was no name with the photo, so there is some question about it. All aspects of family association point to him, but certain proof is lacking. Anyone with information concerning confirmation that it truly is William, will be greatly appreciated. Likewise, if a viewer has this same photo correctly associated with another person, then please let me know so that I can remove it from here.

166. Kinsworthy Hankins was born in 1828 in Montgomery Co., TN and died about 1860-1865 about age 32.

General Notes: Kinsworthy's name appears on the Drew Co., Arkansas tax record for 1857 as removed.

Research Notes: It appears that Kinsworthy probably died in the U.S. Civil War because he does not appear in the 1870 census, his wife has remarried, and his two children of the Hankins surname are living with their step-father.

Kinsworthy married Ann Eliza Garner Jul 7, 1859 in Panola Co., TX. Ann was born in 1840 in TN.

   653 M    iv. Abram Bruce was born in 1860 in AR.

170. James Lytle Hankins was born in 1834 in TN. Another name for James was J. L.

Research Notes: In the 1860 census James is living with Elizabeth Hankins, 48. It's unknown what his relationship is to her because his mother is Lucinda (Austin) Hankins and she was born about 1798. Oddly, she's the same age as his wife's mother, whose name is also Elizabeth, but there is no indication that she is really Elizabeth Whitesides. Plus, there are younger Hankins children listed, so it's almost certain that Elizabeth was married to a Hankins. James' mother died in April 1850, so it's possible that his father, Carter had remarried, and the remaining children are his by his 2nd wife, Elizabeth, or perhaps are step-children. Intertwined in this is that we know that his middle name is Lytle, and coincidentally, his grandmother's Will (Wilmoth Hankins) was witnessed by Elizabeth Austin and Margaret Lytle. There is an excellent liklihood that Elizabeth Austin is the Elizabeth Hankins in whose household he lives in 1860, or that she is Elizabeth (Oliver) Austin, wife of David Austin, his maternal grandmother.

James married Elizabeth L. Whitesides, daughter of Russell Whitesides and Elizabeth G. Unknown, Dec 24, 1857 in Jefferson Co., AR. Elizabeth was born in 1838 in TN.

171. Wilmoth Oliver Hankins was born Jul 17, 1836 in Haywood Co., TN and died in 1932 in Jefferson Co., AR at age 96.

Research Notes: In the 1900 census she is called Wilmoth, 63, born July 1836, married 43 years, 1-of-4 children living, and her parents were born in Tennessee. Her married years must refer to her total years married. In the 1910 census she's a widow living in the household of her daughter Sarah Frances.

Wilmoth married Silas P. Gaddy Dec 4, 1861. Silas was born in 1837 in SC.

The child from this marriage was:

173. Woodbine West Austin was born in 1831 in Montgomery Co., TN and died in 1864 at age 33.

177. William David C. Hankins was born in Sep 1838 in TN, died in 1918 at age 80, and was buried in Dollarhide Cem., Foreman, AR.

General Notes: The 1900 census says he was born September 1839.

Research Notes: Per the research of Jack Seeley: William lived in Sevier Co., Arkansas. He was admitted to the bar in 1869. He was a lawyer until 1880, and then a farmer. In 1865, he was elected county clerk, but never served. He was a Democrat and a member of the Episcopal church.

In the 1910 census, a Fannie A. Covington, 41 (born about 1868/1869), born in Tennessee, married, is living in his household; there is no apparent husband living in the same household, so her relationship, if any, isn't known.

His middle name of David came from the death record of his daughter Lynah Hawkins Hankins.

William married Emma Hawkins about 1876. Emma was born in May 1855 in AR, died Jan 8, 1922 at age 66, and was buried in Dollarhide Cem., Foreman, AR.

Children from this marriage were:

   665 F    i. Fannie Hankins was born in 1877 in AR.

+ 666 M    ii. William Henry Hankins was born Sep 11, 1880 in AR, died in 1944 at age 64, and was buried in Dollarhide Cem., Foreman, AR.

178. Ellen Hankins was born in 1841 in TN.

Ellen married William A. Welch Apr 20, 1863 in Sevier Co., AR. William was born in 1834.

179. Laura Alice Hankins was born Feb 28, 1848 in AR and died Oct 4, 1926 at age 78.

Research Notes: As Laura's father was a Physician, and her husband was a Physician, it may be that the two were working together, or perhaps Harrison trained John W. Hammonds. In any case, in the 1870 Census, Laura (single) and her future husband, John W. Hammonds are living with Laura's brother, John S. Hankins.

In the 1900 census she is 52, born Feb. 1848, married 27 years, 7-of-7 children living, and her parents were born in Tennessee. This conflicts with the birth place of her father from his census data, where his birth place is given as Virginia.

Laura married Dr. John Wilson Hammonds M.D. May 24, 1874 in Sevier Co., AR. John was born Jan 23, 1839 in Pulaski, KY and died Oct 28, 1914 in De Queen, Sevier Co., AR at age 75.

   673 F    iv. Otta K. Hammonds was born in Jun 1882 in De Queen, Sevier Co., AR.

+ 674 F    v. Irma Hammonds was born in Aug 1884 in De Queen, Sevier Co., AR.

+ 675 M    vi. John Hankins Hammonds was born in Mar 1888 in De Queen, Sevier Co., AR and died about 1941 about age 53.

   676 F    vii. Vida Hammonds was born in May 1890 in De Queen, Sevier Co., AR.

180. Ozella A. Hankins was born in 1849 in AR. Another name for Ozella was Ella.

Research Notes: Ozella is listed in the household of her parents in the 1860 and 1870 Census, Sevier Co., Arkansas: In the 1860 Census: Ozella, 11, born in Arkansas; and in the 1870 Census: Ella A., 19, school teacher, born in Arkansas (Ella is obviously short for Ozella, and her middle initial is A.).

Contrary to other census data for her parents, in the 1880 census she says that her father was born in Tennessee, and her mother in New York.

Ozella married Col. Augustus S. Hutchinson, son of A. S. Hutchinson and Isabella J. Unknown, Oct 12, 1870 in Sevier Co., AR. Augustus was born in 1837 in SC.

   679 M    iii. Thomas Hutchinson was born in 1877 in AR.

181. Leona H. Hankins was born in 1851 in AR.

Research Notes: She's not listed in the 1870 Census with her parents, so Leona must have married prior to the 1870 Census.

In the 1900 census she is 49, born Jan 1851, married 32 years, 0-of-0 children living.

Leona married David F. Redding Sep 5, 1867 in Sevier Co., AR. David was born in Nov 1842 in AR. They had no children.

Marriage Notes: They resided in the Choctaw Nation.

182. Mary L. Hankins was born in 1855 in Drew Co., AR.

Research Notes: Mary is listed in the household of her parents in the 1860 and 1870 Census, Sevier Co., Arkansas: In the 1860 Census: Mary K. (the middle initial is uncertain, and it has been interpreted as an R or as an L before; but the 1870 Census indicates that it is a K), 5, born in Arkansas; and in the 1870 Census: Mary K., 16, born in Arkansas.

Mary married James Hutchison May 11, 1876 in Hempstead Co., AR. James was born in 1848.

183. Clement Wesley Clift was born in 1830 in Pittsylvania Co., VA and died Oct 23, 1855 in Caldwell Co., KY at age 25.

Research Notes: 1850 census data says his name is Clayborne W., but marriage and family data gives his name as Clement Wesley. His death is recorded in the K.H.S. Reg. State Archives Vital Statictics; Vol 45, pg. 173, age 24; parents John and Catherine Clift, birthplace: Virginia.

Clement married Elizabeth Ames Sep 20, 1854 in Caldwell Co., KY. Elizabeth was born in 1834 in Wilson Co., TN.

Marriage Notes: Their marriage is recorded in the Marriage Records Caldwell County, Court Clerk's Office, book 3, pg. 175, Clement W. Cliff and Elizabeth Ames, September 20, 1856, surety: W.C.B. Ray.

184. Joseph Robert Clift was born Mar 30, 1833 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Another name for Joseph was Josiah.

Research Notes: One source says that he was born March 30, 1833 in Caldwell Co., Kentucky, but the 1850 census clearly says that he was born in Virginia (probably Pittsylvania County), as well as his older brother Clayborne, and his next younger brother William. Per this census, Benjamin was the first of his parents children who was born in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.

His middle name came from the 1900 census. His name of Josiah came from the 1860 census, and is listed as simply J or JR in most census entries, but the 1910 census clearly names him as Joseph. He may have changed his name to Joseph, or the earlier census may have simply been an error. In any case, because this is a later census I have used Joseph as his first name.

Joseph married Sarah Melinda Riley Apr 18, 1859 in Caldwell Co., KY. Sarah was born in Mar 1840 in Caldwell Co., KY.

Marriage Notes: Their marriage is recorded in the Marriage Records, Caldwell County, Court Clerk's Office, book 4, pg. 495, surety: Steven Riley.

Research Notes: This link has not been proven to these parents. The parents do have a son named John, but it may not be this same John Lawrence.

John is listed as head-of-household in the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, family 642, September 19: John, 38, tobacco, born in Virginia; Poliana (sic), 26, born in Virginia, can't read/write; Susan, 17, born in Virginia (note: Susan obviously isn't the child of Poliana because she would have only been age 9 when she gave birth; Susan is almost certainly John's sister); Thomas, 4, born in Virginia; Sally, 1, born in Virginia (twin of Joseph); and Joseph, 1, born in Virginia (twin of Sally).

John isn't listed with his family in the 1860 Census and is thus presumed dead.

His wife Margaret is listed as head-of-household in the 1860 Census, so William is presumed dead prior to Jul 24, 1860, or they were divorced; he was probably killed in the U.S. Civil War.

William married Margaret Unknown about 1846 in Henry Co., VA (prob.). Margaret was born in 1815 in VA. Another name for Margaret was Peggy.

General Notes: They moved from Henry Co., Virginia to Quaker Gap Township, Stokes Co., North Carolina. There was a fire in the Henry Co., Courthouse in 1851. The records were destroyed in that fire. Henry and Nancy live in Quaker Gap Township, Stokes Co., North Carolina.

Henry wrote his will, "In the name of God, amen. I Henry Lawrence of Stokes County, North Carolina, being of sound mind and disposing memory do publish this as my last will and testament. First, I give and bequeath to my wife, Nancy Lawrence during her natural life one third of the tract of land I now live on, and after her death to my daughter Margaret forever". Second, he named son Samuel Lawrence, and said one hundred dollars was to be repaid to his estate (and it was repaid June 1st, 1893). Third, "I give and bequeath to my daughter Jane to have my bed, bed stead and coverings belonging thereto." Also, third, "my will and desire is that the rest of my home tract that is the two thirds not disposed with the remainder of my property shall be sold to the highest bidder, and the proceeds to be equally divided between my children share and share alike." Fourth, "my will and desire is any land or money on hand shall be equally divided between my children." Fifth, "I appoint Sandi A Ulain, executor of this my last will and testament."

Henry is listed in the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, family #633, date September 19: Henry, 23, farmer; James Lawrence (Henry's dad), 65, carpenter; Amos Jackson, 21, farmer (unknown relationship); Lotty Lawrence, 40, can't read/write (Henry's sister); and Letty Harrison, 7 (unknown relationship); all were born in Virginia. Note: According to the Census, this is Henry's household; he does not have his own family at this time because he didn't marry until 1851. James Lawrence, 65, is Henry's father, and since his mother isn't listed, she is presumed dead, and James married again in 1853, so this Census entry accounts correctly for his family situation in 1850. It's not known who Amos Jackson is. Lotty Lawrence is Henry's sister, and since she still carries the Lawrence name, it's presumed that she never married. The child Letty Harrison is obviously a relative but that relationship is unknown.

Henry is listed as head-of-household in the 1860 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Horsepasture, family #1021, Aug. 26: Henry, 35, farmer, personal property valued at $350, born in Virginia; Nancy, 33, born in North Carolina, can't read/write; Julia, 8, born in Virginia; Saml (Samuel), 6, born in North Carolina; Jas (James), 4, born in North Carolina; and Mary, 1, born in Virginia.

Another researcher in that family down-line names him as Edgar.

Another source in that line indicates that he died in 1900 at the age of 37; that would make him born in about 1862/1863 vice 1860/1861 as indicated by the 1880 and 1900 census.

General Notes: As provided by Melissa Pearman: In his letter of Nov 11, 1896, John James Hankins makes the following statement about his life:

" I am the second child of my father and was born March 23, 1833, in Henry Co., Virginia and have lived a very eventful life, having moved 30 times since I was married, and having lived in Danville, Va., Ruffin, Lexington and Salisbury, North Carolina, Atlanta, Georgia, and Montgomery, Alabama.

I married Melissa Richardson Milner on August 28, 1857, and lived with her 37 years when it pleased God to separate us by calling her to Himself on the 12th of March, 1895, and two years after suffering with cancer.

She was born March 5, 1841, and both of us were baptized into fellowship of the Danville (Va.) Baptist Church in November 1876. She left 12 children."

John James Hankins was married two more times after the death of his first wife, Melissa Milner. Although we know a lot about John James and Melissa, the details of their family life during the 37 years of their marriage are still obscure. I have been unable to find an obituary for either John James or Melissa. That of my grandfather, John Keen Hankins states that the family moved to Lexington in about 1879 where John James was engaged in the manufacture of tobacco products. My father, William Brevard Hankins, said that the Hankins Tobacco Factory made chewing tobacco in plugs and twists. Family stories will help to make their lives less obscure and more interesting. A few of these personal accounts have been collected as follows:

In January 1979, Margaret Radcliffe Gooch sent the following information and recollections of her grandfather:

"There is no obituary notice for my grandfather, J. J. Hankins available here. He died in Lexington when he and his third wife, Mother Annie (Bunnel) Hankins were living with Uncle Foster in the old Ford property, corner of Hargrave and Fourth Avenue West, down one block from my house. I think 1913 was the year. You have the date.

Grandmother Hankins, his first wife, mother of all his children, died in the Martinsville, Virginia region, Axton or Boxwood or Cascade (incorrect, Melissa died in Lexington, NC). I think you will find the place and date in the collection of typed copies of notes of Grandfather Hankins, datelined Martinsvilled. During the years, say 1891-96, they were in that Virginia region and Grandfather was operating small stores; small tobacco interests; various small business ventures, funded principally by his oldest sons; small trades, etc. but nothing substantial; never able to gain footing or independence. I think all of this was going on in Reconstruction times and Grandfather had no substantial connections. A case of good blood but a victim of the after-war conditions. I don't suppose that a family of 12 children to care for helped his finances any. In some respects Grandfather Hankins resembled the "Ashley Wilkes" in "Gone With The Wind": well educated, impractical, upstanding and good company, but no manager. Uncle Foster finally decided to take a house (mentioned above) and brought his father and the third wife there, and from then on the housekeeping continued until his death in Lexington."

Bessie Lynch Diven and Melissa Lynch Bryant tell this interesting story about the early married life of their grandparents (not a direct quote):

"William Banks Milner would not consent to his daughter's marriage to John James Hankins so they eloped. When they returned her father locked her in her room and would not let John James see her. This situation went on for about a year; during which John James Hankins went to Texas and taught school. Finally, the problem was resolved and they were reunited; through the efforts of one of Melissa's uncles."

John and Melissa were buried in Lexington, NC on the plot owned by George Foster Hankins. Note: a number of years ago, George Foster Hankins bought a large cemetery plot in the City Cemetery on North State Street in Lexington, NC, and attempted to have all of his immediate family moved to that site. His parents and many of his brothers and sisters are now buried there but not all. Ella Banks Hankins Radcliffe and John Keep Hankins are buried in the same cemetery, but on their own family plots.

Research Notes: John is listed with his wife Melissa in the household of D. T. Harvey (sic), in the 1860 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Southern Dist., Danville, family #1068, September 1: J. J. Hankins, 26, tobacconist, real estate / property valued at $2,600 / $2,500; Melissa, 18; both were born in Virginia. Note: It's unknown how or if they are related to D. T. Harvey. The assumption might be that Melissa's maiden name was Harvey, but she was a Millner.

Per his brother-in-law's obituary (Daniel Livingston Martin), in 1906, John was living in Stockton, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia.

Per his death certificate he was a tobacconist.

John married Melissa Richardson Millner, daughter of William Banks Millner and Mary Hemphreys Keen, Aug 28, 1857 in Rockingham Co., NC. Melissa was born Mar 5, 1841 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Mar 12, 1895 in Davidson Co., NC at age 54, and was buried in City Cem., Lexington, NC.

237. Josiah Foster Hankins was born Feb 5, 1840 in VA, died Apr 3, 1911 in Beckham Co., OK at age 71, and was buried in Carter Cem., Carter, OK.

General Notes: Josiah moved to Texas in early youth and married Miss Burke near Waxahatchee, Texas, in 1859. He lived near Midlothian, Texas, and had 13 children.

Their family information is taken from the 1900 Census, Roger Mills Co., Oklahoma Territory; 21 Jun 1900, family #291: They own their farm.

Research Notes: Josiah is listed in the household of his father in the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, family #595, September 6: Joseph F. Hankins, 10, in school, born in Virginia. Note: In the 1850 Census his name is clearly spelled as Joseph, so perhaps the census taker made and error, or he later changed his name to Josiah. It would be unusual for there to be an error by the census taker though, because this was an educated family and would have surely caught the error at the time it was made. The 1880 Census image below clearly shows the spelling of his name as Josiah, and he also has a son name Josiah.

Josiah is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Ellis Co., Texas, Mountain Peak, E.D. 52, family #18, June 1: Josiah Hankins, 40, married, farmer, self & parents born in Virginia; Mary, 35, wife, keeping house, self & mom born in Tennessee, dad born in Alabama; John, 19, son, single, at home, attended school; Josiah, 18, son, single, at home, attended school; Louisa, 14, dau., single, at home, attended school; Malisa, 12, dau., at home, attended school; Virginia, 10, dau., at home, attended school; Rob't, 8, son, attended school; Amy, 7, dau., attended school; George, 2, son; Eunice, 4/12s (Feb 1880), dau.; all the children were born in Texas.

General Notes: They lived near the Cascade Post Office, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia. Another source, great grandson, indicates that her full name was Mary Susan Elizabeth Hankins, but I've found no official source with the name of Elizabeth.

"Mary Susan married D.D. Martin and lived near (the) Cascade P.O. in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, dying in 1894. She left eight children: James, who died childless. Mary, who married a Mr. Bratt and now lives near Leaksville, N.C. and has two children.

Note: Mary Susan is listed in the 1860 Census at the home of George Foster. It is very possible that George Foster cared for all of the younger children after the death of John Daniel in 1851.

Gregory, died at her home near Camp Branch Church last Thursday. She was 88 years old and lived a consistent Christian life since her early childhood, having united with Mr. Vernon Baptist Church when a young girl. She is survived by three children, Mrs. Harden Eggleston, Messrs. J.W. Gregory and J. Roud Gregory. The funeral services were held at the late residence and the body was buried in the family cemetery near the home of her grand...(paper torn).

The following account appeared In the same paper dated Fri. Jan. 6, 1922: Figsboro, Jan. 4, 1922: The aged mother of Messrs. Jim Gregory and Roud Gregory and Mrs. H.

The pall bearers were her six grandsons, Egglestons and Gregory; she leaves to mourn her loss two sons and one daughter and 24 grandchildren and several great grandchildren.

General Notes: There is some evidence that associates her with Pleasant Griggs, as possibly her father. The evidence isn't substantial, and the surname of Moon isn't common to the area, so the marriage record translation could be in error. Per Sam Eanes: Jane was the adopted daughter of James and Eliza W. Goings. She was born about 1830 and died between 1890 and 1900. She was the wife of Samuel Manning.

Marriage Notes: The marriage register names her as Elizabeth Moon, adopted daughter of James Going. It appears that her birth surname is Moon, but if she were adopted, then her name should be listed as Going.

In the 1880 census he is called Edward.

Research Notes: His biological father is William I or J Clements. It appears that his father was probably killed in the U.S. Civil War, and his mother married a Thompson before the end of the war and that he appears to have been killed also.

Marriage Notes: They were both single.

317. William Alexander Hankins was born Apr 15, 1863 in Charlotte Co., VA and died Mar 5, 1943 at age 79. Another name for William was Alfred.

Research Notes: Another researcher says his middle name is Alfred, but the 1870 census clearly names him as Alexander.

William married Sarah Jane Beatty, daughter of Hon. Charles Sherrer Beatty Senator and Rebecca Unknown, Aug 6, 1889 in Leisenring, Fayette Co., PA. Sarah was born in Oct 1870 in PA, died in 1951 at age 81, and was buried in Laurel Hill Cem., Dunbar, PA.

Research Notes: One source says she was born in Roanoke, Va., while another says Charlotte Co., Va.; both are within an hour or so with each other, so either is reasonable, but Charlotte county is probably correct based on where her family lived.

Nannie married Davis Woodward Beatty, son of Hon. Charles Sherrer Beatty Senator and Rebecca Unknown, Jun 20, 1889 in Leisenring, Fayette Co., PA. Davis was born Oct 23, 1868 in Fayette Co., PA, died Jun 24, 1940 in PA at age 71, and was buried in Laurel Hill Pres. Cem., Laurel Hill, PA.

Marriage Notes: Some might have that they married on the 21st, and that date is on the actual certificate but that's the day it was recorded; the day of marriage, the 20th, is recorded in the preceding narrative.

319. John Weldon Hankins was born Jan 29, 1868 in VA and died in Apr 1948 at age 80.

General Notes: Extract from a personal narrative by Edna P. Hankins Lyall:

"John Hankins married Mary Bayless - October 17 1895. They lived in Connelsville, PA. and he worked for Frick Coal Co. One son was born - there - they named him after his grandfather Lafayette A. They then moved to Elizabeth, PA. He and his bother Samuel work for their brother-in-law Peter Tuchrer or Fuehrer (sp?). After which they rented a little farm, and by this time two more children - William and Edna. Then John decided he needed a bigger farm, he moved to the Patterson farm near Buena Vista, PA. After about 10 years he decided to own a farm of his own. The farm had 78 acres with coal rights. He built an 8-room house. From there, three children were all married. Lafayette moved to Meadville, PA. And after his mother and father died, he moved back. He had four children. William lived in Washington D.C. and Edna moved near by."

As provided by Barbara Obaker: "John and Daisy had a large home, with a small coal mine, greenhouses, the farm and a dairy. He tried everything. We went to visit them every summer. One time during hunting season, Jim (my mother-in-law's brother) had just started to hunt. Daisy was an excellent cook. She made the best fresh peach ice cream. L.A. and wife Ophilia moved from their Meadville farm into part of his parents' home. Ophilia was also a good cook and had a great laugh. When John and Daisy died, L.A. and Edna inherited it all. The family was always buying Bill out of trouble. They sold home lots along the lane. Edna built a lovely home at the beginning of the lane before her parents died. It is called "Hankins" something. Samuel and his wife lived nearby. They had a daughter that I know of. If mom was still with us she could tell you more. She spent a lot of time there after she married dad. She looked after Florence when she became bed-fast just before she died."

Research Notes: Another researcher indicates that he was born in West Virginia, but the 1870 census clearly states he was born in Virginia, and the family was living in Virginia at the time.

Another researcher indicates that he was born in January 1868, but the 1900 census clearly shows him born in January, 1861. age 39, and married for 5 years. But since he has siblings born in 1861, it may be that the 1900 census taker made a mistake in transcribing the information.

John married Mary Ella Bayless, daughter of William Bayless and Anna McManus, Nov 17, 1895 in PA. Mary was born Aug 14, 1874 in Oakmont, PA and died in 1947 at age 73. Another name for Mary was Daisy.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 1045 M    i. Lafayette Alexander Hankins was born Sep 1, 1896 in PA, died in Jun 1977 at age 80, and was buried in Mount Vernon Cem., Elizabeth, PA.

   1046 M    ii. William H. Hankins was born in Sep 1897 in PA.

+ 1047 F    iii. Edna P. Hankins was born in Mar 1899 in PA, died Jun 10, 1995 at age 96, and was buried in Mount Vernon Cem., Elizabeth, PA.

321. Florence Lalena Hankins was born Sep 9, 1873, died in 1937 at age 64, and was buried in Laurel Hill Pres. Cem., Laurel Hill, PA.

General Notes: As told by Barbara Obaker: "After Lafayette and his wife died, their daughter Florence continued to live in their home. She lived there until she died. John and Daisy inherited the house; I guess because they paid the taxes. I'm sure that happened in their last years. I do know that my grandfather brought groceries for sister, Florence. She had no income; only what people would give her. She had a vegetable garden and a small orchard. Florence never married, and she had Nellie out of wedlock. When I stayed there Nellie worked and lived in the Connellsville hospital. I'm sure she gave her mother some money."

One source says she was born in 1873 while her tombstone clearly reads 1875. However, that tombstone is new, and her next older brother was born in April 1876 (too soon after April 1875 at 7-months). For this reason, 1873 was used.

Florence had a relationship with someoneMarriage status: father unnamed - never married.

Her child was:

   1048 F    i. Nellie Hankins .

323. William Edward Hankins was born Mar 19, 1874 in Monroe Co., GA and died Jun 24, 1939 in Lakeland, FL at age 65. Another name for William was Willie.

Research Notes: He's buried in the Fitzgerald Cemetery (exact location unknown).

   1050 M    ii. Kirk Hankins was born in 1911 in Polk Co., FL.

   1051 F    iii. Annie M. Hankins was born in 1914 in Polk Co., FL.

324. Thomas Melvin Hankins was born Feb 8, 1876 in Forsyth Co., GA, died Jun 5, 1932 in Mulberry, Polk Co., FL at age 56, and was buried Jun 7, 1932 in Fitzgerald Cem., Medulla, FL.

Research Notes: His tombstone says 1875 and 1931, without dates, but his death record transcription is very specific.

Thomas married Ruby E. UnknownRuby was born in 1892 in MI.

The child from this marriage was:

   1052 F    i. Lelia M. Hankins was born in 1915 in FL.

325. Kirk Hankins was born in Feb 1878 in VA, died in 1955 at age 77, and was buried in Mascotte Cem., Mascotte, FL.

Research Notes: In the 1900 census he's living in the household of his single brother William. In the 1930 census he says that his father was born in Georgia, but that is incorrect.

Kirk married Mary S. Thigpen Dec 27, 1906 in Monroe Co., GA. Mary was born in 1886 in GA.

Kirk next married Emma R. Unknown about 1921. Emma was born in 1889 in GA, died in 1955 at age 66, and was buried in Mascotte Cem., Mascotte, FL.

326. Lusetta Jane Clift was born in 1825 in Sandy River, Pittsylvania Co., VA and died Apr 13, 1859 in Leatherwood, VA at age 34.

Research Notes: Since she died only 7-days after Eliza's birth, it's likely she died of complications from childbirth.

Lusetta married Samuel Richard Kirks in 1847. Samuel was born in 1821 in Sandy River, Pittsylvania Co., VA. Another name for Samuel was Sam.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 1053 F    i. Mary L. Kirks was born in 1849 in VA.

   1054 M    ii. Robert Kirks was born in 1852 in VA.

   1055 F    iii. Susannah Jane Kirks was born Aug 22, 1855 in Henry Co., VA, died Nov 10, 1939 at age 84, and was buried in Highland Burial Park, Danville, VA. Another name for Susannah was Susan.

   1056 F    iv. Eliza Ann Kirks was born Apr 8, 1859 in Leatherwood, VA.

327. Joseph B. Clift was born in Mar 1833 in Henry Co., VA.

Research Notes: Joseph is listed as head-of-household in the 1870 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Leatherwood, family #79, July 4: James B. Clift, 35, farmer; Nancy, 25, keeping house; Daniel, 5, at home; Joseph H., 2, at home; Catherine, 1/12, at home; all were born in Virginia.

Joseph is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Martinsville, E.D. 130, family #129, June 5-7: Joseph B., 47, farmer, parents born in Virginia; Nancy L., 39, wife, keeping house, parents born in Virginia; William D., 14, son, works on farm; Joseph H., 12, son, works on farm; James J., 9, son; George C., 6, son; Lilly, 2, dau.; all were born in Virginia.

The 1900 census surely contains an error because it shows Nannie as having 4-of-4 children living, and married 36 years. Married 36 years coincides with earlier census information, but other children more than the four listed in the 1900 census are also in the earlier census entries.

Joseph married Nancy L. Hairfield, daughter of James D. Hairfield and Catherine Cox, Jul 10, 1864 in Henry Co., VA. Nancy was born in Apr 1839 in Henry Co., VA. Another name for Nancy was Nannie.

Marriage Notes: They were both single.

328. Zachariah Clift was born in 1834 in Henry Co., VA.

   1058 F    ii. Georgiana Clift was born in 1868 in Henry Co., VA.

330. Mary S. Clift .

Mary married John Clements Nov 25, 1843 in Henry Co., VA.

Marriage Notes: There marriage is listed on page 10 and 64 of the marriage book. Since 11/25/1843 is listed on page 10, it would appear that this is the date of their marriage license, and they were probably married later, but in any case, they were married on or after 11/25/1843.


The child from this marriage was:

   1059 F    i. Mary Clements was born in 1851 in VA.

331. Alexander William Hankins was born in Feb 1849 in Henry Co., VA. Another name for Alexander was Alex.

General Notes: The 1900 census says he was born Feb. 1849 whereas his marriage record transcription says 1848.

The link to his father as William Hankins has not been proven by official records that specify the lineages. However, the circumstances indicate that it is probable. Alex married Louisa A. Earles. Looking back to his likely father, William, we find his aunt Lucy A. Hankins who married John Bray; their daughter, Mary F. Bray then married Pleasant Earles, who, if this association is correct, is Alexander's brother-in-law. John and Lucy (Hankins) Bray also named one of their sons Alexander. All of these persons were born or living in the same area of Pittsylvania County, and the marriages and names all indicate that they are kin as I have specified. Additionally, his likely grandfather, John Hankins, had a brother, William J. Hankins, who named a son Alexander W. Hankins (by his 2d wife); these two Alexander's would be 1st cousins.

Research Notes: Alexander is listed in the household of Martha Earles in the 1870 census: Alexand, 21, farm laborer, can't write, born in Virginia. Note: This is the correct Alexander from the 1880 census because he married Louisa, the daughter of Martha Earles.

He's listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Leatherwood, E.D. 129, family #279, June 15: Alex Hankins, 30, works on farm, can't read/write, parents born in Virginia; Louisa, 39, wife, keeping house, can't read/write, parents born in Virginia; Robert, 10, son, works on farm, can't read/write; Mary J., 8, dau.; John T., 5, son; Adaline Earles, 32, wife's sister, can't read/write; all were born in Virginia. Note: The census data clearly shows Louisa about 9-years senior to Alex.

They are living with their son, William, in the 1900 and 1910 census. In the 1920 census, he is living with his son, John. He's 76 and a widow; his middle initial of W comes from here too.

Alexander married Louisa A. Earles, daughter of William Earles and Martha Stacy, Nov 30, 1869 in Henry Co., VA. Louisa was born in Nov 1848 in Henry Co., VA and died before Feb 13, 1910.

337. John William Hankins Sr.

General Notes: They were 2nd cousins. John Erskine Hankins writes in his book "A Southern Boyhood" that Susan Hankins married John William Hankins.

From analysis of all potential 2nd cousins bearing the Hankins surname, he is certainly a grandchild of John & Elizabeth (Durham) Hankins. John & Elizabeth had two sons (John & William). These are the only two males that are Susan's 2nd cousins that bear the Hankins surname. Susan's husband is therefore either the son of John Hankins or William Hankins, the sons of John & Elizabeth (Durham) Hankins.

This family's 1st child was named John William. Also, John had a brother named William (sons of John & Elizabeth Hankins), therefore it's extremely unlikely that they would have named one son John William and another son William; it's possible but unlikely. Based on this John's first name being John instead of William, it's my belief (James C. "Jim" Hankins) that his father is John Hankins, so that is the rationale for linking it thusly in this genealogy.

John married Susannah Hodges Hankins, daughter of William Davis Hankins Sr. and Susanna C. Hodges, about 1865. Susannah was born in 1848 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Another name for Susannah was Susan.

Children from this marriage were:

   1079 M    i. John William Hankins Jr. was born in 1868, died about 1948 about age 80, and was buried in Woodlawn Cem., Spray, NC. He had no relationships and no children.

+ 1080 M    ii. Henry Scott Hankins was born Sep 16, 1872 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Jun 11, 1930 in High Point, NC at age 57, and was buried Jun 13, 1930 in Deep River Friends Ch. Cem., High Point, NC.

+ 1085 M    vii. Levi Houston Hankins was born in Oct 1884 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

338. Micaiah H. Hankins was born in 1831 in Henry Co., VA and died Jun 3, 1863 in Chancellorsville (near), VA at age 32. Another name for Micaiah was Mike.

Research Notes: External sources clearly show his given name spelled as Micajah, his middle initial of H and a nickname of Mike at least once each. It appears that his name may likely have been properly spelled as Micaiah, as this was a biblical name from the book of First Kings, Chapter 22, verse 8. No places have been found where he wrote his own name, and it is acceptable to substitute a j or an i in some cases, or possibly an i even being mistaken for a j. The spelling of his name isn't known for certain, but I've analyzed it here for the purposes of attempting to refine an uncertainty. In the 1850 census, he was also not listed as being literate. This circumstance would have also contributed to him not being able to correct the spelling of others who would actually write his name, as they heard it spoken, for official purposes.

An analysis of the 1840 census provides some clarity into Micajah's father. Living side-by-side are John Bray, James Hairfield, John Hankins, and James Devin. Micajah's aunt Tempy married James Devin, his aunt Catherine married James Hairfield, and his wife's aunt Lucy married John Bray. Thus, almost certainly Micajah is the son of John Hankins, the brother of Lucy (Hankins) Bray with whom he is staying in the 1850 census. To be certain, piecing together Micajah's wife and children wasn't easy. As in the case of his son, Thomas Fountain, there are three marriage record transcriptions and in each his mother's initial of "J" Hankins, but never the name of the father (an indication of death or divorce). This alone isn't proof positive; only a piece of information. Then, William Samuel's marriage record to his 2d wife, Jennie Bray, names his parents as M.H. and J. Hankins. In the 1860 census, when Micajah still lives, three of their children, William, Mary, and James are all listed there; Micajah is listed along with his wife Wealthy, and those three children. The 1860 census confirms his first name, and associates it with his Civil War records, gives his wife's first name of Wealthy, and corroborates the initials for the marriage record of William Samuel, and the J for their mother's first name, where I already knew the full name of Wealthy Jane from sources for her family. There are others bits and pieces scattered throughout the sources, all either hinting at or supporting, or in some cases like the 1860 census, standing alone as a perfect source. Now, going back to Thomas Fountain, his marriage record to Ada Gravely names him as T.F. Hankins, and names his mother as J. Hankins. The 1880 census, Henry Co., Va., is where Thomas Fountain gets grouped with the rest of the family with the conclusive evidence of his sister Martha, from the 1860 census. Lastly, with Thomas born in Mar. 1862, and the last child in the family, it is consistent with Micajah's death date, as well as another reason he'd have been on leave from the war, starting in Feb. 1862, to be with his wife when Thomas was born. Lastly, even though only one source uses the name of Mike for him, it's an important once in the death certificate (actual image) of his son James R. (1st named in the 1860 census). Mike is a reasonable pet name for Micajah, but not used in any of the diary entries from his fellow soldiers who referred to him regularly as Micajah instead of Mike.

In the 1850 census he is listed as Major Hankins, 17, farmer, and living with John and Lucy Bray. Since he is listed last, following seven of their children, he may be just a laborer working for them, but he is almost certainly Lucy's nephew. The names of all of Lucy's siblings isn't certain, but she does have two known brothers, John and William. John's birth year isn't known, and Williams was born about 1794. She also has two other unknown brothers, and maybe others too. Micajah is surely the son of one of Lucy's brothers. Living next door to the Brays' is the family of James & Catherine (Cox) Hairfield, and Catherine's 17 year old niece, Jane, is living with them. Macajah and Jane married about a year after the 1850 census.

He was a Sergeant in the Confederacy, in the U.S. Civil War. He was killed near Chancellorsville, Virginia; he was killed-in-action. However, there was no fighting in the area in June, so it's likely that he died from wounds received at Chancellorsville, or maybe a minor skirmish near Chancellorsville. The battle dates for Chancellorsville are May 1-6, 1863, so he died about 30 days after the battle. Prior to the war he lived in Henry County, but his county is listed as Pittsylvania, which indicates that he was probably born there. However, his son's death certificate said that he was born in Henry Co., Virginia.

He's almost certainly the same person referred to in the U.S. Civil War diary of Sgt. Asa Jackson Wyatt, 1861-1862, to wit: ". The next day was Sunday, August 1st, and that day I was on picket duty as Corporal of the guard. Here we pressed a hog into service, having eaten nothing since we left Huntersville. At this place Lee P. Francis and James C. Reynolds were taken sick with the measles and sent back to Huntersville. We left several of the Company in the hospitol at Huntersville. When we left there C.M. Hall, John D. Wells, Sampson Warren, Lieutenant Sigmore, N.B. Hankins, James Thomas, and Micajah Hankins were also sent to back to Edway. "

"Micajah Hankins was appointed 2nd Sergant, V.D. Smith 3rd, A.J. Wyatt, 4th, and Merideth J. Allen 5th, John L Shorter first Corporal, John Riddle, 2nd, M.C. Wills, 3rd, and Spencer Adkins, 4th."

General Notes: Per Civil War records for the 21st Regiment of Virginia, Pittsylvania County Library, Chatham, Virginia, enlisted March 10, 1862 in Company I and was killed in action August 9, 1862, in Cedar Mountain, Virginia. The South and the North referred to the same battles by different names. In this case, the South called it the Battle of Cedar Mountain, but the North referred to it as the 2nd Bull Run.

Research Notes: Moses is listed as head-of-household in the 1860 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, pg. 37, Northern Dist., Museville, family #261, July 11: Moses Mitchell, 25, farmer, real estate / property valued at $725 / $225; Elizabeth, 21; John R., 2; all were born in Virginia.

Elizabeth next married James Mitchell Reynolds, son of Hugh Reynolds and Elizabeth Mitchell, James was born in 1803 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

343. Elizabeth J. Cox was born in Aug 1829 in VA. Another name for Elizabeth was Eliza.

General Notes: The 1900 census indicates she was born in Aug 1829, but various earlier census data indicate she may have been born as late as 1833.

Research Notes: Her middle initial came from the 1900 census. She's living with her son-in-law, Lewis Wright. She's 70, born Aug. 1829, 2-of-8 children living, and her parents were born in Virginia.

Elizabeth married Charles Franklin Martin, son of Parson Orson Martin and Elizabeth Saddler, in 1855. Charles was born Oct 5, 1806 in Cumberland, VA and died in 1884 at age 78.

Children from this marriage were:

   1099 M    i. Floyd Martin was born in 1856 in Henry Co., VA.

   1104 M    vi. George Martin was born in 1872 in VA.

344. Wealthy Jane Cox was born in 1835 in Henry Co., VA.

Research Notes: In the 1850 census she is 17 and living with James D. & Catherine Hairfield. Catherine is her aunt. Her brother James is living with his aunt Temperance, so it seems that their parents must have died prior to the 1850 census.

In the 1880 census, July Hankins, 4, daughter, is living in her household. However this child surely is a granddaughter, or maybe even adopted, because her husband was killed in the U.S. Civil War. The alternative is that this child was born out-of-wedlock but that is only mentioned as a possibility.

Also named in the 1880 census is her daughter Martha. However, there is a problem in that a death record exists for their daughter Martha that says she died Nov. 25, 1856, following her birth in June 1856. Thus, either the 1880 census is wrong, or the death record is wrong. Another possibility is that she had another child and named her after their recently deceased child. It could also be that Mary Sue is the daughter referred to in the 1880 census. Martha should be listed in the 1860 census but isn't, so it's possible that Martha and Mary are the same child.

Wealthy married Micaiah H. Hankins, son of John Hankins and Unknown Unknown, in 1851. Micaiah was born in 1831 in Henry Co., VA and died Jun 3, 1863 in Chancellorsville (near), VA at age 32. Another name for Micaiah was Mike.

Research Notes: Per the research of Ann Graham: He received his early training at Rocky Springs Academy, Virginia. While not a college graduate, he mastered Latin, Greek, and German and became a distinguished linguist. He was ordained as a Baptist minister on August 11, 1846 and served two years in missionary work at the Baptist State Convention. He settled in Oxford in 1848 and immediately established the first Baptist Church on Front Street and served as its pastor. The building and lot were the gift of Rhodes Nash Herndon, whose sister Cynthia, was Robert's first wife. In 1896, it was replaced by a brick church on the corner of Main and Spring Streets, the site of the present church which was built in 1928.

Robert spent much of his life in the service of the country churches, being pastor of Grassy Creek Church for 37 years and of Mountain Creek Church for 25 years. With the help of Rev. Moses Baldwin, Rev. Devin organized the congregation of Mountain Creek Baptist Church in May 1860. Its present brick church, built in 1918 in located in the Cornwall vicinity of Granville County on State Road 1418. In 1880 he wrote and published a history of Grassy Creek Church. He retired from the ministry in 1866 because of failing health.

He was a great worker in the Christian Church and gave to the Christian colleges in Virginia. Travel was his hobby and after retirement he visited all or most of the 48 states, and toured parts of Mexico and Canada. He spent a winter in California, and visited cousins in Oregon, and enjoyed many winters in St. Augustine, FL, where he learned to ride a bicycle in his advanced years. His wife refused to accompany him on most of his trips because she preferred to be near her daughter and grandchildren.

Marriage Notes: They were married by the Reverend Minter. Their marriage is recorded in the book by Anne Vestal-Miller: The Marriage Register of Henry County, Virginia, Vol. I, pp. 16 & 17, 8 Jan. 1863: John H. Cox, 27, single, born Pittsylvania Co., Va., son of Wm. H. & Nancy D. Cox., married Bettie J. Gravely, 18, single, born Henry Co., Va., dau. of Edm. & Susan Gravely.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1116 F    i. Alice Joanna Cox was born Feb 26, 1864 in Henry Co., VA, died Aug 12, 1923 in Mtn. Valley, Henry Co., VA at age 59, and was buried in Giles Cem., Mtn. Valley, Henry Co., VA.


357. James A. Cox was born in Jun 1841 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

General Notes: James and Sarah were cousins, and was James' second marriage.

James' first wife had lived and died in Nebraska where their little son was adopted by an Aunt, Mrs. Larch.

Research Notes: James is listed in the household of his parents in the 1880 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, pg 129c: James Cox, 35, born in Virginia, white, single, son, and farmer. Note: I suspect that his age was transcribed incorrectly here because he was age 9 in the 1850 Census, and it would have been easy to discern someone age 9 compared to age 5, plus, a 5 and a 9 are easily misinterpreted.



James married Sarah A. Haley, daughter of William Pendleton Haley and Julia Susannah Francis, Jan 23, 1881 in VA. Sarah was born in May 1853 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

Children from this marriage were:

   1117 F    i. Frances Cox was born in 1881 in VA.

+ 1118 F    ii. Myrtle Bettie Cox was born in Apr 1883 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

+ 1119 F    iii. Julia Lillian Cox was born Nov 10, 1886 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Dec 11, 1975 in Cascade, VA at age 89, and was buried in Danville Mem. Gdns., Danville, VA.

   1120 F    iv. Nannie J. Cox was born in Sep 1889 in VA.

359. Harriet M. Cox was born Nov 14, 1846 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Mar 26, 1934 at age 87, and was buried in Chatham Burial Park, Chatham, VA.

Research Notes: Pittsylvania County, Virginia Pension Application: Harriet M. Hodges, 78 as of 1930, resided at her home with E.D. Reynolds. Widow of Daniel Webster Hankins who died on July 2, 1863. Killed in Battle of Gettysburg. Married to Hodges on Jan. 16, 1862. Married Stephen Yeatts on March 7, 1870 who died on July 5, 1876. Then married J.T. Hodges Dec. 23, 1890 who died on Oct. 9, 1921. Received pension under husband, D.W. Hankins. Note: The above information is certainly incorrect in some respects. First, Isham Hodges was born in 1852 and could not have married Harried in 1862 at age 10. Lastly, J.T. Hodges is almost certainly Isham Thomas Hodges, alluded to as married in 1862, and is probably a transcription error of J.T. vice I.T as it should be.

In the 1900 census, Harriet gives her age as 48, born November 1851, and has 2-of-3 children living. Her age is certainly incorrect in that she was born in 1846 and was thus 54 instead of 48. There are four living children, all of the Hodges surname, but all of them were born in the 1880, and she didn't marry Isham until 1890, so Harriet and Isham had no children. Since all the children bear the Hodges surname, then Isham must have either legally adopted them, or they simply used the Hodges surname. However, because of their ages, the father of two of them my be Stephen Yeatts, and the other two must be Isham's by his first marriage, or all four could belong to Isham Hodges by a previous marriage, and I suspect that this is the case. However, since there are no 1890 census records surviving for Virginia, their alignment with the proper parents may not be possible.

Harriet married Daniel Webster Hankins, son of John Henry Hankins Sr. and Eleanor Elizabeth Gravely, Jan 10, 1860 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. The marriage ended in divorce. Daniel was born in 1837 in Henry Co., VA and died Jul 2, 1863 in Gettysburg, Adams Co., PA at age 26. Another name for Daniel was Dan.

Marriage Notes: Per the research of Posey L. Adkins, Jr: Hankins, Daniel W., son of John H. and Eleanor Hankins to Harriet M. Cox, daughter of William H. and Nancy D. Cox.10 January 1860. Married by Balaam Warren.

360. Albert T. Cox was born in Feb 1850 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

Research Notes: Albert is listed in the household of his parents in the 1850 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Oct 29, 1850, family #1052: Albert, 13/12s, born in Virginia.

Albert is listed as head-of-household in teh 1880 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, E.D. 167, family #87, June 10-12: Albert Cox, 25, farmer, parents born in Virginia; Melissa, 22, wife, keeping house, parents born in Virginia; Cora, 2, dau.; James Hankins, 22, hired, works on farm, parents born in Virginia; all were born in Virginia. Note: The 1850 Census, above, lists him as 13/12s, so he was obviously born before 1850 and probably 1849 or maybe even 1848. Also, the relationship, if any, of James Hankins, to them isn't known, however, he is probably a nephew, on either side, as both families were married into the Hankins family.

Albert married Melissa A. Hodges, daughter of Dr. William Hodges and Susan Ann Julius, Jan 16, 1873 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Melissa was born in Oct 1855 in VA.

367. Thompson C. Allen was born in 1832 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Another name for Thompson was T. C.

General Notes: Per Civil War records for the 21st Regiment of Virginia at the Pittsylvania County Library, Chatham, Virginia, Thompson enlisted on July 29, 1861, in Pittsylvania County in Company I as a Corporal. He made Sergeant in November or December 1861. Thompsonas accused by Wither of misconduct and cowardice at Winchester, May 25, 1862, and was under arrest until his resignation on August 8, 1862.

Per information found on Ancestry web site, Thompson enlisted June 10, 1863, in Pittsylvania County as a Private. He served in Troop D of the 39th Battalion, then transferred to D Co. of 30th Battalion Cavalry Regiment, Virginia, and deserted on January 28, 1865. He deserted to Pittsylvania Co., Virginia. This information was taken from The Virginia Regimental Histories Series.

Comments concerning his civil war records above: Normally after desertion (1862) men were tried and sometimes shot. In 1862, the South was fairing well in the war, and he may have been allowed to resign from the Army. However, the war soon took its toll on the South because it became more and more difficult to find new soldiers to replace the dead and wounded. As such, it would probably have been easy for Thompson to reenlist again in 1863, and he may have done so to try and regain his honor. But, battle is hard, and he apparently could not overcome this obstacle as he deserted again in 1865.

Research Notes: In the 1880 census he is 48, a widower, and living with his son-in-law, A.W. Davis.

+ 1168 M    ix. George Darling Allen Sr. was born Oct 13, 1889 in Sandy River, Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Oct 10, 1968 in Danville, Pittsylvania Co., VA at age 78, and was buried Oct 12, 1968 in Highland Burial Park, Danville, VA.

372. Pollock Eagan Allen was born in 1845 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died in 1921 at age 76, and was buried in Bethany UMC Cem., Brunswick Co., VA. The cause of his death was Stomach cancer. Another name for Pollock was Pollie.

Polloc was on the prisoner-of-war roll on April 25, 1865. He is buried in Bethany Cemetery, Broadnax, Virginia.

Per Civil War records at the Library of Virginia in Richmond, Virginia, Polloc received a $15 per year pension. He applied for the pension on March 24, 1903, citing infirmity from old age and from Small Pox which he contracted while in service. He also stated he was a member of the reserves and that he was living in Lacy's, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia.

Research Notes: His name is clearly spelled as Egan P. Allen in the 1860 Census. It appears that he changed the sequencing of his name later on. Per the research of John E. Allen: There is some question as to whether his middle name was Ealon or Eaton. This question is raised by investigation of the US Census of 1850. However, the legibility of hand writing on old documents leads me to believe that his middle name was Ealon. He was PE to friends and relatives. I have documented much of my research and I have the privilege of having first hand reports from my grandfather "John Samuel Allen" who was named for his Uncle John. Grandpa told me a lot of stories about his family including his grandpa Polloc "PE."

Here early in the evening I met with several of my acquaintances in the Company, among them L.M. Shoemaker from Danville, and Captain Flournoy from Pittsylvania Court House. I saw Sterling Cooper, William C. Austin and several others..."

Research Notes: From the Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Marriage Register: Frances Ann Shorter, 23 Dec 1851. Henry Co., Virginia Marriage Register 1, p 28: Lucy Elizabeth Martin, 2 Dec 1867. Neither register lists vital data for either bride or groom.

Austin, 30, master carpenter, property valued at $50; Francis A., 30; Hannibal, 9; Lord B., 7; Arista E., 5; Lareiga (sic), 3; Deogines, 1; all were born in Virginia.

In the 1860 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, p 44-200: He was a Minister and a carpenter. He was known as "Uncle Billy."

William is listed as head-of-household in the 1870 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Leatherwood, Jun 29, 1870, family #9: W.C. Austin, 40, farmer, personal property valued at $200; Hanibal, 18, farm laborer; Lord Byron, 16, farm laborer; Arista, 14, female, at home; Loreza (sic), 13, male, farm laborer; Elosiza (sic), 11, male, farm laborer; Beauregard, 8, at home; Wm. Henry, 4, at home; Nepolion, 1, at home; Lucy E., 24, keeping house; all were born in Virginia.

The 1880 Census, Callands, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, family #9, lists William C. Austin, 50; Lucy Elizabeth, 35, wife, and their children.

In a Deed recorded 30 Sep 1858 in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Deed Book 58, p 94: William C. Austin purchased land from his parents Garland A. and Elizabeth J. Austin.

In a Deed recorded 30 Sep 1858 in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Deed Book 58, p 95: William C. Austin and wife Frances A. Austin sold land to William T. Mitchell.

In an Indenture recorded April 21, 1873 in Pittsylvania Deed Book 66, p 128: William C. Austin granted Homestead Exemption. Five days later on 26 Apr 1873 there is an entry in the Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Court Order Book 50, p 371 where William C. Austin is listed as Defendant and James H. Collie, Receiver. This may have had something to do with William attempting to protect his home by obtaining a Homestead Exemption.

His marriage information comes from the Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Marriage Register 2, p 17.

During the U.S. Civil War he was a Private in Company H, 24th Regiment, Virginia Infantry ("Henry Guards"), Kemper's Brigade, which was commanded by Captain Peter R. Reamey. He enlisted 5 Jun 1861, at Lynchburg, VA and undoubtedly served in many of the major battles in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. He was first wounded about 29 Aug. 1862, at Second Manassas. He was "Absent, Wounded" from his company for 4 months from Aug. 1862 to Jan 1863, and was confined to General Hospital, at Liberty, VA most of this time. He received a 30 day furlough from 6 Jan 1863 to 5 Feb. 1863, and was paid 25 cents a day while on furlough for commutation of rations. His rate of pay was $11.00 per month. He returned to duty as scheduled, and was out sick 3 days from 7 Apr 1863 to 10 Apr 1863, and was treated at CSA General Hospital, Danville, VA. He returned to duty and again was wounded at the battle of Gettysburg on 3 Jul 1863, arriving at the General Hospital, Staunton, VA, 12 days later. Apparently his wounds were quite severe, as he was confined to the hospital about 8 months, and was subsequently assigned to duty at Tarboro, NC as a baggage guard for 2 months during March and April of 1864. He returned to his company in May of 1864, and remained until captured at Farmville, VA on 6 Apr 1865, arriving as a prisoner at City Point, VA on 14 Apr 1865. The records show he was on the sick list while being held prisoner. He took the Oath of Allegiance to the United States and was released 6 Jun 1865, almost 4 years to the day after he enlisted. He returned from the war to live in Henry Co., Virginia. Action: Need to document all of the sources for this excellent military biography.

From the Death Records at Lee Camp Soldier's Home, Richmond, Virginia: He spent the final 6 years of his life at this facility, from Apr 1907 to 5 Jul 1913, where he died at the age of 86 years. His body was removed to Martinsville, Virginia for burial.

Charles married Mary Elizabeth Fowlkes, daughter of James J. Fowlkes and Margaret Rebecca Allen, Jan 24, 1867 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Mary was born in Jun 1845 in Pittsylvania Co., VA and died Dec 28, 1906 at age 61. Another name for Mary was Betty.

Marriage Notes: They were married by B.J. Hall.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 1213 M    i. James Daniel Austin was born Nov 28, 1870 in Henry Co., VA and died Sep 22, 1946 in Roanoke (city), Virginia, USA at age 75.

397. Susan Austin was born in 1835-1838 in Henry Co., VA.

Susan married C. A. Hundley, son of Thomas Hundley, Jan 24, 1882 in Henry Co., VA. C. was born in 1822 in Henry Co., VA.

398. Wealthy P. Austin was born in Dec 1837 in Henry Co., VA, died Mar 28, 1908 in Henry Co., VA at age 70, and was buried in Bullington Cem., Axton, VA.

Research Notes: In the 1870 Census, Weathy isn't living with her husband and children. William, Cornelia, Melissa, and William, Jr., are living with her mother, Polly. There is a good chance that her middle initial of P stands for Prewitt for her great-grandmother's maiden name, who she was probably named after, Wealthy (Prewitt) Austin.

Wealthy is living with her son-in-law, John Hundley, in the 1900 Census, Henry Co., Virginia.

Obituary: Danville Register, Danville, Va., Thur., Apr 9, 1908 [edited]: Mrs. Wealthy A. Bullington died at her home in Henry County on March 28th, after a long illness. She was 71 years of age and a member of the Baptist church. She is survived by the following children: Mrs. J.R. Wells of Danville; Mrs. J.C. Hundley of Henry County, and William H. Bullington of South Carolina. She leaves a brother, C.F. Austin of Richmond and a sister, Mrs. C.A. Hundley of Henry County.

Note: There is some inconsistency in her age. Per her obituary, which could be transcribed incorrectly, she is 71, and died in 1908, yielding a birth year of about of about 1837. But, in the 1870 census, her age is 28, or born about 1842. However, in the 1850 census, she is 14, or born about 1836; this is roughly consistent with her obituary. In the 1860 census, there is only one Wealthy given name and that is of Wealthy Hankins, wife of Micajah Hankins, and she is 24, which is consistent with both her obituary, and the 1850 census. Thus, it seems that she has understated her age in the 1870 census by about 5-7 years, and that understating is consistent with her other siblings in 1870 (Susan and Daniel Taylor).

Wealthy married William H. Bullington, son of John C. Bullington and Susanna Branson, Dec 18, 1856 in Henry Co., VA. William was born in 1833-1836 in Henry Co., VA.

Marriage Notes: Another source indicates they were married Dec 10, but that is probably the date of their marriage license.

Their marriage is recorded in the Bureau of Vital Statistics, Henry Co., Virginia Marriages, Book 1, 1853-1893, page 4, line 40, 18 Dec. 1856: William Bullington, 23, Single, Born/Resides Henry Co., Farmer, Son of Jno. & Susan, married Welthy P. Austin, 19, Single, Born/Resides Henry Co., Dau. of Dan'l. B. & Mary Austin.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 1214 F    i. Cornelia E. Bullington was born in Sep 1858 in VA, died Jul 25, 1916 in Danville, Pittsylvania Co., VA at age 57, and was buried Jul 27, 1916 in Bullington Cem., Axton, VA.

+ 1216 M    iii. William H. Bullington Jr. was born in Feb 1862 in Henry Co., VA.

400. Joseph H. Austin was born in 1844 in VA and died before Jun 14, 1900.

General Notes: Joseph and John are apparently twins because they are both listed as age 6 on the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia (family 94).

Research Notes: This link to his wife is not certain.

Joseph married Sarah Gravely, daughter of Jabez Leftwich Gravely and Martha L. Hankins, Sarah was born in Nov 1849 in Henry Co., VA. Another name for Sarah was Sally.

Children from this marriage were:

   1217 M    i. William L. Austin was born in Sep 1886 in NC.

   1218 F    ii. Kate Gravely Austin was born in Dec 1887 in NC.

401. Daniel Taylor Austin was born in 1848 in Henry Co., VA and died about 1886 in Henry Co., VA about age 38.

Research Notes: Taylor is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Leatherwood, E.D. 129, family #63, June 4: Taylor Auston, 33, works in tobacco factory, parents born in Virginia; Susan, 29, wife, keeping house, parents born in Virginia; Orran M., 1, son; all were born in Virginia.

His marriage information comes from the Henry Co., Virginia Marriage Register 1, p 68. They were 1st cousins.

Daniel died before June 21, 1900 because he was not listed in the Census.

Per the research of Bobby McLeod: Daniel died about 1886, I have excerpts from Susan's obit that states "Sister Austin's companion died 47 years ago today".

Daniel married Susan Eleanor Gravely, daughter of Jabez Leftwich Gravely and Martha L. Hankins, Jan 7, 1875 in Henry Co., VA. Susan was born in 1852 in Henry Co., VA. Another name for Susan was Bettie.

Marriage Notes: They were both single.

Children from this marriage were:

   1219 F    i. Unnamed Austin was born Aug 27, 1875 and died Aug 28, 1875.

   1220 F    ii. Unnamed Austin was born Aug 27, 1875 and died Sep 3, 1875.

   1221 M    iii. Jabez A. Austin was born in Jan 1878 and died Jul 3, 1879 at age 1.

+ 1222 M    iv. Orren Morton Austin was born Apr 4, 1879 in VA, died May 28, 1948 at age 69, and was buried in Sherwood Mem. Park, Salem, VA.

   1225 M    vii. Charles Fountain Austin was born in Apr 1886 in VA and died after 1932.

402. Samantha A. Austin was born in 1835 in Henry Co., VA.

Samantha married William R. Hankins, son of John Hankins and Lucy Unknown, Apr 17, 1860 in Henry Co., VA. William was born in 1833 in Henry Co., VA and died Oct 5, 1862 at age 29.

Marriage Notes: Their marriage is recorded in the Henry Co., VA Marriage Register 1, p 8. They were both single at the time of their marriage.

403. Julia Elmira Austin was born in 1837 in VA.

Research Notes: Elmira and her son Grief are living with her parents in the 1860 census. Apparently she had her child out-of-wedlock. Her name is spelled Almire in the 1860 Census, and Elmira in the 1880 Census; it's presumed the newer census is probably correct. Elmira is also shown single, living with her parents in the 1880 census. There is a disconnect concerning her age as given in the 1850 Census and the 1880 Census.

Julia married someone

Her child was:

+ 1226 M    i. Grief W. Austin was born in Mar 1860 in Henry Co., VA. (Born out-of-wedlock)

404. James Roland Austin was born in 1841 in Henry Co., VA and died Jan 12, 1896 in Danville, Pittsylvania Co., VA at age 55. Another name for James was Joe.

Research Notes: James is listed in the household of Jabez Leftwich Gravely in the 1870 Census, Henry Co.,Virginia. That's because, Jabez's daughter, Susan, married Daniel Taylor Austin; Daniel and James were first cousins. Susan probably met Daniel through James. In this census, James is 28, single, farm laborer, and born in Virginia; however, this doesn't seem to be the same James Roland Austin here, but is listed for scrutiny.

Per the 1880 census he was a shoemaker. His full name was James Roland, but his daughter's death certificate gave his name as Joe. He's 46 and thus born about 1846. However, in the 1870 census he is clearly 29, or born about 1841. Since they married in about 1863, he would have only been 17 or 18 if born in 1846. That is much too young for a male to marry for the times, and for that reason his birth year is believed to be about 1841.

James married Nancy M. Cox, daughter of William R. Cox and Manerva Jamina Cayton, Feb 1, 1863 in Rockingham Co., NC. Nancy was born Feb 13, 1844 in Henry Co., VA, died Nov 20, 1916 in Spray, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, USA at age 72, and was buried in First Bapt. Ch. Cem., Eden, NC. Another name for Nancy was Nannie.

Marriage Notes: They were married in Rockingham Co., NC, but mysteriously have moved to Maryland in the 1870 census, then back to Rockingham Co., NC by the 1880 census.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 1227 M    i. James Owen Berry Austin was born in Nov 1863 in NC, died in 1905 at age 42, and was buried in First Bapt. Ch. Cem., Eden, NC.

450. Samuel Pinkney William Maxwell was born Oct 6, 1818 in Rutherford Co., NC and died in DeKalb Co., TN. Another name for Samuel was Sam.

Research Notes: In 1878, Sam was Sheriff of DeKalb Co., Tennessee (per Goodspeed’s History of TN, p. 850).

Per the book DeKalb County History, Chapter 11, p. 123: Sam was a former postmaster for Smithville, Tennessee.

Sam is listed in the 1850 Tennessee Census, p. 232: Samuel P.W. Maxwell, Smith Co., Tennessee (no Twp listed).

There is some debate as to Sam’s relationship to John and Elizabeth Maxwell. Family tradition always stated that he was their son, but records were incomplete and it could never be proved, but proof now exists and is included below.

Per the family, “Sam Pinkney Williams was mother’s grandfather and Uncle Sam (mother’s brother was named Samuel William Pinkney for his grandfather). Samuel William Pinkney was a Revolutionary War General, and it was customary to name children for officers.” Proof comes in strange places: William had trouble collecting his war pension due to the loss of his discharge papers. For many years, testimony in Tennessee Courts was given by various persons to prove that he fought the war, and later to prove that Elizabeth was in fact his widow and had the right to receive his pension after his death. The following is a declaration made in court by Sam on 7 Oct 1844 (remember that Sam was born on 6 Oct 1818):

“State of Tennessee, Smith County. " On this day personally appeared in open court Samuel P.W. Maxwell, grandson and legal heir of William Maxwell and Elizabeth Maxwell his wife, aged 26, being a resident of the county and state aforesaid, who being first duly sworn according to law doth in his oath make the following Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed July 7, 1838, and the Joint Resolution of the 16th August 1844 granting half pay and pension to certain widows. That he is the grandson and legal heir of Elizabeth Maxwell widow of William Maxwell deceased who was a Pensioner of the United States and that the said Elizabeth Maxwell made application for a Pension under act of 7th July 1838 entitled ‘an act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows’. That said pension has never been allowed and that the said Elizabeth Maxwell died on the 8th day of February 1841 leaving the following children and grandchildren as her legal heirs and representatives to wit William Maxwell, Robert Maxwell, Nancy Love, the heir of John Maxwell deceased, the heirs of Jesse Maxwell, the heirs of Elizabeth Maxwell and the heirs of James Maxwell and that they are her only heirs. He further declares that the said Elizabeth Maxwell remained the widow of said William Maxwell until her death as above stated. Sworn to in open court this 7th day of October.” “Samuel P.W. Maxwell” The Clerk of the Court submitted proof of testimony” “J.J. Bennett, State of Tennessee, Smith Co. “I, John J. Bennett, clerk of Smith County Court hereby certify that the written declaration was produced in open court and was duly sworn to by Samuel P. Maxwell, at the October Term 1844 of said Court. “In testimony thereof I have hereto set my hand and affixed my seal of office, at office in Carthage the 5th day of October 1844.”

Per notes from Annelle Bensen: “During the Civil War part of DeKalb Co., Tennessee fought on the side of the North and part on the side of the South; brothers often taking different side. My Grandfather, James Jarvis Maxwell fought on the side of the North and I asked Uncle Kai why they did. He says he can hear them say, ‘I cannot take up arms and fight against the government my forefathers fought to establish.’ After that I felt better about having Union soldiers in the family.”

Note: There is still much question about who Sam's parent were. The above oath in Smith Co., Tennessee does much to narrow down the choices, and probably the only two choices are either John or James J. Maxwell.

Summarization by James C. "Jim" Hankins: Per the research of L.E. Mullen, concerning the Oath (above) in Smith Co., Tennessee. I (Jim) read it several times and had to ponder it closely before the facts became obvious. Sam is making an oath that he is the "grandson" (it's important that he said grandson) of William & Elizabeth Maxwell. The oath concerns his grandfather William's Revolutionary War pension (that part isn't important). Later in the oath, Samuel names William & Elizabeth's children and grandchildren as the legal heirs (this is the important part). Note that he distinguishes between the living and deceased children of William & Elizabeth, and this distinction is what proves that he was not the son of William, Jr., and other family records for the other children prove that he wasn't the son of Robert, or Jesse. The result is that Samuel could only be the son of either John & Elizabeth Maxwell or James J. Maxwell. Rationale: Samuel names the heirs as William, Robert, Nancy Love, the heir of John Maxwell deceased, the heirs of Jesse Maxwell, the heirs of Elizabeth Maxwell, and the heirs of James Maxwell, and that they are her only heirs. Thus, William, Jr. was alive and well at this time. So if Samuel is presenting this oath as the grandson of William & Elizabeth Maxwell, then he cannot be the son of William, Jr., because Samuel makes a deliberate point in pointing out the "heirs", or grandchildren, of William & Elizabeth's other children, of whom Samuel is included. More importantly, William, Jr., was either not married at the time of the oath, or he and hid wife had no children, or else, Samuel would have said "the heirs of William", as he did with the others. While I'm convinced that this proves that Samuel wasn't the child of William, Jr., it doesn't offer proof that he was the child of John. However, process of elimination narrows the choices down to either James J. or John Maxwell. What is often thought to be James' Will is but a summary, because in the full document he does indeed mention children, and one of them is illegitimate. James even had one wife that left him \endash she made some really strong statement about not wanting to be his wife anymore! Thus, James J. is a possibility. William & Elizabeth's son Robert was born in 1805. and Jesse was born in 1807, while Samuel was born in 1818, so Samuel is not the son of either Robert or Jesse. Those are the only possibilities, and that leaves Samuel as only the son of John Maxwell or James J. Maxwell.

Per the research of Mary Eve Hutcherson Lingbloom: I doubt that we will ever know the truth about Sam PW, but James J. may be a more likely father than John. My thinking leans toward James J. as his father, because, Sam's eldest son is named James J. Maxwell.

Note by James C. "Jim" Hankins: Mary Lingbloom (above) could very well be right, however, as a counter thought, it was very common in those times for parents to name their children after their siblings, thus, Sam may well have continued such a tradition by naming his first son after his brother, and he also named another son William; possibly after his brother William. In any case, there is still question about Sam's true parents. And, although I list his father as John, that isn't certain, and since Sam's eldest child doesn't appear to be named James J. II, then I'm more inclined that his father was John instead of James. Hopefully, others will find more information to resolve this uncertainty.

Samuel married Nancy Oliver Fitts Mar 14, 1839 in Smith Co., TN. Nancy was born Apr 27, 1820 and died Aug 17, 1886 in DeKalb Co., TN at age 66.

Also listed in his household in the 1870 census is Martha Edward/Edmund, 37, born in Tennessee; relationship, if any, isn't known.

John married Margaret Jane Redding Feb 2, 1846 in Rutherford Co., TN. Margaret was born in 1828 in TN and died before Jun 25, 1900 in Rutherford Co., TN.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 1356 M    i. William Thomas Maxwell was born Nov 10, 1846 in Rutherford Co., TN, died Apr 5, 1934 in Rutherford Co., TN at age 87, and was buried Apr 6, 1934 in Family Cem., Almaville, TN.

   1365 M    x. Granville Maxwell was born in 1869 in Rutherford Co., TN.

+ 1366 F    xi. Ella E. Maxwell was born in Oct 1872 in Rutherford Co., TN.

452. Albert M. Maxwell was born in 1822.

General Notes: Others list Albert's birth as about 1818, but that cannot be true. His parents were married in January 1818, and they had their first child, Samuel, on October 6, 1818, and their son John was born in December 1820, with their daughter Martha born in January 1923. I therefore speculate that Albert's birth must have been in 1821 or 1822, and could not possibly have been in 1818 unless Albert was born out-of-wedlock.

Albert married Sarah Winsett, daughter of Amos Winsett, Jan 23, 1843 in Williamson Co., TN. Another name for Sarah was Sally.

Marriage Notes: Their bondsman was William Gesit.

453. Martha Jane Maxwell was born Jan 1, 1823 in Rutherford Co., TN and died Jan 5, 1891 in Rutherford Co., TN at age 68.

   1373 F    vii. Julia A. Snell was born in 1859 in TN.

455. William Franklin Maxwell was born Mar 22, 1827 in TN. Another name for William was Billy.

General Notes: Billy was a stone mason.

Research Notes: The is some confusion concerning two of his daughters. The 1900 census names one as Nannie E., and the the 1880 census name one as Nancy S., 17, and another as Elizabeth, 15. Obviously, Nannie is a nickname for Nancy. It isn't unusual for two children to be somehow combined, and I speculate that may have happened in 1900, so I list them separately here.

William married Susan Cornelia Butts May 21, 1847 in Rutherford Co., TN. Susan was born in Oct 1832 in TN. Another name for Susan was Sally.

Marriage Notes: Although other researchers indicate that they were married in Falls Co., Texas in 1845, that cannot be true because Falls County wasn't even formed until 1851.


Children from this marriage were:

General Notes: There is some confusion concerning the spouse of this Larken Anderson Covington. And, to be certain, the duplication of names in these families doesn't make things any easier to sort things out.

The lineages I post here are those that seem most accurate to me. Thus, I have chosen to use this lineage to draw attention to any controversy and hopefully ferret out documentation to either prove this lineage beyond anyone's doubts, or develop the true lineage.

Most surrounding family information is the same, while the controversy centers on the spouse of this Larken Anderson Covington, son of John H. Covington & Jane Marlin. All parties seem to agree that his wife's first name was Emily. One side believes that his was Emily E. Covington, while the other believes she was Emily Smith.

There are multiple reasons that I choose to go the route that Emily Smith was the wife of Larken Anderson Covington. 1) Larken & Emily Covington were 1st cousins, and that seems unreasonable, even though 1st cousins have married in the past. 2) Both sides agree that her first name was Emily, so it is easy to see how the two could be mixed. Moreso, since both sides say that their was a relationship between the two families. In one case, 1st cousins, and in the other, an in-law relationship. 3) The information provider of the association of Emily Smith as Larken's wife is in the direct blood line of his father John H. Covington and possesses much greater detail on not only the persons in question but also their siblings, the lineages of the family of Emily Smith and their ties into the Covington lines.

Individually, none of the three reasons above would probably be justification for a judgment call. However, collectively, I (James Hankins, Jim@CottageHill.com) feel that the information leans towards Emily Smith as the wife of Larken Anderson Covington (son of John H. Covington & Jane Marlin).

Larkin married Emily Smith, daughter of Charles Smith and Rebecca Marlin, Apr 28, 1864. Emily was born Aug 9, 1843 in TX.

481. John W. Porter was born in 1830 in TN and died in 1848 at age 18.

General Notes: John died the same year his son, William Hartel, was born. William was not born until late in the year (November 16) so it can be assumed that John may have died while his wife was pregnant with William.

John married Eliza Wood in 1848. Another name for Eliza was Mary.

The child from this marriage was:

+ 1414 M    i. William Hartel Porter was born Nov 16, 1848 in Harmony, AR, died Nov 27, 1938 in Harmony, AR at age 90, and was buried in Harmony Cem., Johnson Co., AR.

482. Amanda F. Porter was born in 1834 in Williamson Co., TN and died in 1867 at age 33. Another name for Amanda was Mandy.

Amanda married Issac E. Brashears, son of Jesse Brashears and Lucy Ellis Davis, about 1850-1851 in AR. Issac was born in 1827 in TN.

Marriage Notes: Since Issac is listed as single in the household of his parents on the date of the 1850 census (Oct. 18, 1850), then they were married sometime after this date. Also, since their eldest son is age 9 in the 1860 census, taken June 1860, then they were probably married as early as late October 1850, and as late as May 1851.

483. Mary Elizabeth Porter was born in 1836 in Williamson Co., TN and died Jun 18, 1888 at age 52. Another name for Mary was Eliza.

484. Joseph Bartlett Porter was born Feb 22, 1839 in Williamson Co., TN, died Nov 1, 1913 at age 74, and was buried in Harmony Cem., Johnson Co., AR. Another name for Joseph was Bud.

Research Notes: Joseph is listed in the household of his parents in the 1850 Census, Johnson Co., Arkansas: Joseph B., 11, AR.

He was also a County Judge of Johnson Co., Arkansas in 1880, 1884 and 1886. According to Joy Baskin Bean, he was always known as "Uncle Bud".

Joseph also fought in the U.S. Civil War, and served in Company C, 1st Arkansas Mounted Rifles, CSA, holding the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. He was a member of Churchill's Division. Joseph joined the Army on 11/16/1861, and was captured by Federal troops at Little Rock, Arkansas on 5/3/1865. He fought at Pea Ridge and the battle of Franklin Tennessee, where he was wounded.

Per the research of Jim Hankins, Pea Ridge is a little publicized battle of the U.S. Civil War, because there were no sketch artists for the newspapers present, and thus, no news articles as with other battles. However, later, it was determined that Pea Ridge was a major turning point in the Civil War, much more so than Gettysburg, and it was a horrendous battle on both occasions. There were two battles of Pea Ridge, and both were paramount to the Confederacy, for if the Confederates had been victorious in either battle, the Mississippi River would have been closed at that point to the Union Navy. With it's loss, soldiers and supplies for Union forces could be easily supplied, and Confederate forces were put under constant threat of Union Navy guns.



Joseph married Nancy Caroline Baskin, daughter of John Baskin and Malissa Lasker, Jan 5, 1860 in Johnson Co., AR. Nancy was born May 11, 1842 and died Jun 16, 1934 at age 92. Another name for Nancy was Puss.

Park, Cascade, VA. The cause of her death was Arteriosclerosis, complicated by senility. Another name for Elizabeth was Eliza.

Research Notes: In the 1870 census, she is living with her father, William, her sister Martha, and the child Allice. William is 69, and his occupation is a ditcher. Elizabeth is 25, and keeping house. Martha is 24, but her occupation isn't readable, but ends with - at home. Allice is age 2. There is no indication concerning whether Elizabeth or Martha is Alice's mother, and no indication as to whether either is married. We know William's wfie so these are obviously his daughters. Since Alice is 2, then her father wan't killed in the U.S. Civil War, so it's likely that she was born out-of-wedlock. She's also presumed to be Elizabeth's child because she shows up in her household in later census data.

In the 1880 census she is listed as single and living with her widowed father, William. Listed below her are daughter, Mary (13), and son William (7). Since she is single and they are listed as children, then she apparently had them out of wedlock.

Eliza is listed as head-of-household in the 1900 Census, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, Leaksville, E.D. 73, family #7, June 1: Eliza F. Hankins, 56 (Nov 1843), widowed, 2-of-2 children living, parents born in Virginia; Mary A., 32 (Jan 1868), dau., married 18 years, 8-of-8 children living, house work; Willie E., 26 (Jun 1873), son, single, farmer; Annie B. Bailey, 20 (Sep 1879), single, boarder, parents born in Virgina, cotton spinner; Laura Petty, 21 (May 1879), single, boarder, parents born in Virginia, cotton spooler; all were born in Virginia. Note: Although Eliza is listed as a widow, death certificate also lists her as a widow, but that isn't likely, because her maiden name is Hankins. It is probable that both her children were born out-of-wedlock.

Her death certificate says that she was a widow, but there is no indication that she ever married, and her children carry the Hankins surname; indicating they were probably born out-of-wedlock.

Elizabeth married someone

Her children were:

Research Notes: Her daughter's death certificate erroneously names her as Susannah Davis.

Susannah married John William Hankins Sr., son of John Hankins and Unknown Unknown, about 1865.

526. Helen Elizabeth Hankins was born in May 1833 in VA, died in Mar 1909 in Staunton, Augusta Co., VA at age 75, and was buried in Hankins-Grant-Woodall Cem., Mtn. Valley, VA.

General Notes: Helen's name is spelled "Helon" in the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, pg 15, family 28.

Research Notes: In the 1880 census she is living with her son, John. She's 47 and a widow.

Obituary: Danville Register, Danville, Va., Sun., April 4, 1909 [edited]: Vashti, Va.: The remains of Mrs. Helen Grant were brought home from Staunton and interred near Grady on Tuesday in the family graveyard. She is survived by the following children: Messrs. John, George, Jeff D., and Isaac Grant, and Mrs. Washington Manning. She was before marriage, a Miss Hankins and was about 80 years of age at the time of her death. She was an industrious and highly respected lady and throughout the many vicissitudes of a widowed life, with a family of male children to rear, she maintained a high and honorable character and stood for the highest standard of a Christian example.

Note: Her obituary says she was about 80, but census records indicate she was born about 1833 and was about 76 at the time of her deatheither could be correct.

Helen married Isaac S. Grant, son of James Grant and Mary Ann Swepston, Nov 17, 1853 in Henry Co., VA. Isaac was born in 1831 in VA and died before Jun 5, 1880.

Marriage Notes: Their marriage is listed in Henry County Register of Marriages No. 1, 1853-1893, p. 1, line 7, 17 Nov. 1853: Isaac S. Grant, 21, resides Pittsylvania Co., son of James Grant, married Helen E. Hankins, 20, resides Henry Co., dau. of John H. Hankins.

527. Joseph R. Hankins was born in 1834 in Henry Co., VA and died in 1862 at age 28.

Research Notes: Joseph is listed as head-of-household in the 1860 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, pg. 44, Swansonville, family #312, July 17: Joseph Hankins, 26, farmer, property valued at $150; Sarah, 21; Henry A., 2; all were born in Virginia.

Joseph served in Co. I, 21st Regiment, CSA, during the US Civil War. From the Virginia National Archives on US Civil War Pension Applications, it appears that Joseph was killed in the US Civil War; probably at the Battle of Gettysburg, along with his brother Dan.

Joseph is mentioned, with his brother Dan, in a poem by Booker Randolph Shorter: The entire poem is included in Booker's record:
. Then if you should be so lucky as to regain Kit Bell,
I think you can drown them all in the well.
There is Joseph Hankins and his brother, Dan,
Would be good hands to make lead the van;
There is Vincent Swanson and Bone Allens Dump,
Could take a Yankee by the heels and slap him against a stump.

Joseph married Sarah J. Pearson, daughter of Mastin Pearson and Rachel Unknown, in 1856-1858. Sarah was born in 1835 in VA. Another name for Sarah was Mollie.

Children from this marriage were:

   1486 M    i. Henry A. Hankins was born in 1858 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

+ 1487 M    ii. James M. Hankins was born Dec 29, 1860 in Sandy River, Pittsylvania Co., VA.

528. Daniel Webster Hankins was born in 1837 in Henry Co., VA and died Jul 2, 1863 in Gettysburg, Adams Co., PA at age 26. Another name for Daniel was Dan.

General Notes: Dan served with the Confederacy during the U.S. Civil War and was killed at the battle of Gettysburg. Daniel and Harriett were 2nd cousins.

Since Dan died in 1863, and Harried married Tom Hodges in 1862, then they were obviously divorced at the time of his death.

Research Notes: Daniel is mentioned, with his brother Joseph, in a poem by Booker Randolph Shorter: The entire poem is included in Booker's record:
. Then if you should be so lucky as to regain Kit Bell,
I think you can drown them all in the well.
There is Joseph Hankins and his brother, Dan,
Would be good hands to make lead the van;
There is Vincent Swanson and Bone Allens Dump,
Could take a Yankee by the heels and slap him against a stump.

Daniel married Harriet M. Cox, daughter of William H. Cox Sr. and Nancy D. Perkins, Jan 10, 1860 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. The marriage ended in divorce. Harriet was born Nov 14, 1846 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Mar 26, 1934 at age 87, and was buried in Chatham Burial Park, Chatham, VA.

Marriage Notes: Per the research of Posey L. Adkins, Jr: Hankins, Daniel W., son of John H. and Eleanor Hankins to Harriet M. Cox, daughter of William H. and Nancy D. Cox.10 January 1860. Married by Balaam Warren.

(Duplicate Line. See Person 359)

529. George Brown Hankins was born Mar 15, 1839 in Henry Co., VA, died May 20, 1900 in Henry Co., VA at age 61, and was buried in County Line Christian Ch. (near), Henry Co., VA.

General Notes: Their home was near County Line Church, Route 57 East, Martinsville, Henry Co., Virginia (across the road from the church). Both were buried at their home place.

Research Notes: George is listed as head-of-household in the 1870 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, family #7, June 29: Geo. B. Hankins, 31, farmer, real estate valued at $100; Abigail, 24, keeping house; John S., 3; Joseph H., 1; all were born in Virginia.

George is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, pg 76A, family #430: George Hankins, 41, married, works on farm, parents were born in Virginia; Abigail, 34, wife, keeping house; John S., 13, works on farm; Joseph H., 12, works on farm; G. Peter, 8; all were born in Virginia. He's living next door to his parents.

Although his tombstone states he died May 20, 1903, that isn't possible because he was already dead prior to the 1900 census. His wife Abigail is listed as head-of-household in that census and is widowed; the census was taken on June 26, 1900. Thus, he died prior to that date. It's likely that the tombstone was misread, and since May precedes June, his death date here reads May 20, 1900.

George married Abigail Ervin Lawrence, daughter of Samuel Ervin Lawrence and Rebecca E. Campbell, Mar 15, 1866 in Henry Co., VA. Abigail was born in 1846 in VA, died Mar 12, 1924 in VA at age 78, and was buried in Hankins-Grant-Woodall Cem., Mtn. Valley, VA.

Children from this marriage were:

   1488 M    i. William Daniel Hankins died in 1874.

+ 1489 M    ii. John Samuel Hankins was born May 30, 1867 in Henry Co., VA, died Jun 6, 1930 in Henry Co., VA at age 63, and was buried in Woodall-Grant Cem., Henry Co., VA.

+ 1491 M    iv. George Peter Hankins was born Feb 25, 1872 in Mtn. Valley, Henry Co., VA, died Nov 21, 1942 in Henry Co., VA at age 70, and was buried in Hankins-Grant-Woodall Cem., Mtn. Valley, VA.

   1492 F    v. Abigail Hankins was born in 1883 in Henry Co., VA (prob.) and died before Jun 26, 1900.


530. Judith Eleanor Hankins was born in Feb 1843 in Henry Co., VA, died in 1920 at age 77, and was buried in Shorter Cem., Pittsylvania Co., VA. Another name for Judith was Judy.

Research Notes: Per the research of Mary Majesty: Judith is listed as head-of-household in the 1900 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, household #221: Judie Shorter, 57 (Feb 1843), widow, 7 of 8 children living, parents born in Virginia, farmer, can read, owns her farm; Elva (?) Hundley, dau., 33, (Sep 1866), widow, 2-of-3 children living, parents born in Virginia; Charlie, son, 21 (Aug 1878), single; Osie O.

Judith married Joseph Shelton Shorter, son of Booker Randolph Shorter and Tabitha Gabrilla Hubbard, Nov 3, 1859 in Rockingham Co., NC. Joseph was born Jul 25, 1838 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died in 1894 at age 56, and was buried in Shorter Cem., Pittsylvania Co., VA.

Marriage Notes: They married before 7/3/1860 because Judith isn't listed with her parents in the 1860 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, family 250, dated 7/3/1860.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 1493 M    i. Joseph Henry Shorter was born in Nov 1861 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

+ 1494 M    ii. Tyler King Shorter was born Nov 14, 1864 in Pittsylvania Co., VA, died Jul 18, 1935 in Spray, Rockingham Co., North Carolina, USA at age 70, and was buried Jul 19, 1935 in Spray Cem., Spray, NC.

531. John Henry Hankins Jr. was born in 1845 in Henry Co., VA.

General Notes: John does not appear in the 1880 Census anywhere in the United States. This is an indicator that he died prior to the 1880 Census. There is a Henry J. Hankins in the 1880 Census, Walton, Charlotte Co., Virginia of the correct age, but he is married to Mary Moss. Transposition of first names is fairly common, so this probably isn't him.

John married Louise Durham Feb 2, 1871 in Franklin Co., VA. Louise was born in 1855 in Franklin Co., VA.

Marriage Notes: They were both single.

532. Jabez Robert Hankins was born Jul 15, 1848 in Henry Co., VA, died Jan 17, 1925 in Henry Co., VA at age 76, and was buried in Hankins-Grant-Woodall Cem., Mtn. Valley, VA. Another name for Jabez was Jabe.

Research Notes: Jabe is listed as head-of-household in the 1900 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, E.D. 70, family #212, June 12: Jabe Hankins, 62 (Jul 1847), married 32 years, farmer, parents born in Virginia; Lucy R., 50 (Feb 1849), married 32 years, 11-of-12 children living, parents born in Virginia; Green C., 27 (Jun 1872), son, single; John S., 25 (Feb 1875), son, single; Jabe P (iic)., 20 (Dec 1879), son, single; George D., 18 (Feb 1882), son, single; Lee G., 16 (Jul 1883), dau.; single; Nannie S., 8 (Aug 1891), dau.; all were born in Virginia.

Hankins, 62, farmer, married 42 years, parents born in Virginia; Lucy R., 61, married 42 years, 10 of 12 children living, parents born in Virginia; J.S., 34, son, single, farmer; all were born in Virginia.



Jabez married Lucy Rebecca Lawrence, daughter of Samuel Ervin Lawrence and Rebecca E. Campbell, Apr 16, 1868 in Henry Co., VA. Lucy was born Feb 23, 1849 in Henry Co., VA, died Nov 29, 1923 in Henry Co., VA at age 74, and was buried in Hankins-Grant-Woodall Cem., Mtn. Valley, VA. Another name for Lucy was Lucy Rainey.

+ 1512 F    xii. Nannie Lou Hankins was born Aug 17, 1891 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

533. Albert Cox Hankins was born in Aug 1849 in Henry Co., VA, died before Jan 27, 1920 in Henry Co., VA, and was buried in Henry Co., VA.

General Notes: Very little is known of Albert's life, and there are no known photos of him available even though some family members recall seeing some in the distant past. It is very odd that no one seems to have any stories or memories to share of Albert's life.

In 1988, Lois Haley Shelton interviewed Sallie Fannie Wells Reynolds and she asked if she knew where Albert's middle name of Cox came from. She said that it was because they lived on Turkey Cock Mountain. However, as speculated by both Desmond Kendrick and James Hankins (Alberts' great grandson), it's likely that Albert's middle name of Cox was taken from the maiden name of his Great Grandma, Elinor Cox, wife of Joseph Jefferson Gravely, Sr.

Research Notes: In the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Albert is listed as unnamed and age 1. The census was taken on July 29, 1850, so Albert was born in either late Jun 1850, or possibly early Jul 1850. However, the 1900 census says he was born in Aug. 1849 which would have made him about 11 months old in the 1850 census.

Albert is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, family #431, June 26 (dic): Albert Hankins, 30, married, works on farm, parents born in Virginia; Susan, 24, wife, parents born in Virginia; S. Peyton, 8 (aic), son; John, 6, son; William D., 4, son; Fletcher, 1, son; all were born in Virginia.

Albert is listed as head-of-household in the 1900 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Leatherwood, E.D. 51, family #207, June 22: Albert Hankins, 50, married 29 years, born Aug. 1849 in Virginia, parents born in Virginia; Susan R., 44, wife, married 29 years, had 11 children and 9 still living; born Mar. 1856 in Virginia, parents born in Virginia; John A., 26, son, single, born Jan 1874; William D., 24, son, single, born Jan 1876; Joseph H., 19, son, single, born Oct 1880; Rosie M., 16, daughter, born Aug. 1883; Lawrence C., 13, son, born Aug. 1886; Willis R., 11, son, born Jan 1889; Gravely C., 5, son, born Oct 1894; Fletcher, 21, son, born Jun 1878; Mary E., 15, daughter-in-law, born Mar. 1885, had no children at this time, parents born in Virginia; all were born in Virginia.

Hankins, 60, married 40 years, farmer, can read/write; Susan R., 54, wife, married 40 years, 10 of 12 children living, can read/write; Willis, 20, single, farmer laborer, can read/write; Rose, 25, single, can read/write; Gravely, 18, single, farm laborer, can read/write; Lucy, 9, single, can read/write; all were born in Virginia.

Albert died between May 3, 1910 and Jan 27, 1920 because he is not listed in the 1920 Census and his wife is a widow.



Albert married Susan Rebecca Lawrence, daughter of Samuel Ervin Lawrence and Rebecca E. Campbell, Feb 2, 1871 in Henry Co., VA. Susan was born Mar 9, 1856 in Henry Co., VA, died Jan 28, 1931 in Henry Co., VA at age 74, and was buried in Hankins-Martin-Haley Cem., Henry Co., VA.

His marriage record transcription says he was born 1850.

534. Millard Filmore Hankins was born in Dec 1852 in Henry Co., VA and died before Jan 30, 1920.

Research Notes: Because of his given name and middle initial, it's presumed that he was named for our President Millard Filmore who lived from 1800-1874, and was President at the time of his birth. Thus, his middle name is listed as Filmore, but that may be in error. However, his middle initial is "F" and it almost certainly stands for Filmore.

Millard is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, E.D. 165, family #140, June 9: Milard F. Hankins, 20, farmer, parents born in Virginia; Labindy, 25, wife, keeping house, parents born in Virginia; Tyler Morris, 33, black, married, servant, labors on farm, can't read/write, parents born in Virginia; all were born in Virginia.

He's listed as head-of-household in the 1910 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, E.D. 88, family #285, May 6: M.F. Hankins, 57, farmer, married 36 years, self & parents born in Virginia; L.A., 57, wife, married 36 years, 0-of-1 child living, self & parents born in Virginia. Note: It appears that they only had one child during their marriage, and that child died young.

546. Reuben H. Griggs was born in Apr 1840 in VA.

Research Notes: Reubin is listed as head-of-household in the 1880 Census, Callands, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, pg 72b: Rubin Grigg, 38, born in Virginia, white, married, parents born in Virginia.

It appears that they may not have had any children. They were married in Dec 1868, yet 12 years later, at about age 40 for both of them, they have no children in their household during the 1880 Census.

In the 1900 census, a nephew, William Cobler, 18, born April 1888, single, self & parents born in Virginia, is living in his household; as of June 2006, his lines to either Reuben or Nance wasn't known.

Reuben married Nancy Fuller, daughter of Israel Fuller and Mary Elizabeth Aaron, Dec 24, 1868 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Nancy was born in Apr 1838 in VA. They had no children.

Delila married someone

Her child was:

   1552 M    i. Vaden Ewell Griggs was born May 14, 1866 in Henry Co., VA.

549. Joseph C. Griggs was born in May 1845 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

Research Notes: Joseph is listed as head-of-household in the 1870 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, Leatherwood, family #29, June 30: Joseph Griggs, 25, farm laborer; Elizabeth, 27, keeping house; Eldrige C., 1, male, at home; Clara B., 2/12s, at home; James W. Clements, 10, white, at home; all were born in Virginia. James' relationship isn't known, however, with him being "at home" then he must be either the child of Elizabeth by a previous marriage, or Elizabeth's brother for who they are now the legal guardian, or a nephew, for who they are now the legal guardian.

In the 1900 census his surname is spelled Grigg.

Joseph married Mary Elizabeth Hankins, daughter of James Allen Hankins and Elizabeth Jane Barrow, Dec 18, 1866 in Henry Co., VA. Mary was born in Jan 1843 in Henry Co., VA.

Marriage Notes: He was single and she was a widow.

+ 1554 F    ii. Clara Belle Griggs was born in Apr 1870 in Henry Co., VA.

551. Sarah F. Hankins was born in Apr 1842 in Pittsylvania or Henry Co., VA. Another name for Sarah was Sally.

Research Notes: Also living in her household in the 1900 census is Maud Stephens, 12, born Mar. 1888 in Virginia, granddaughter; but her parents aren't known. However, the 1920 census clears it up in that Maude has married, and listed beneath her is Henrietta Stephens, her mother. Thus, it appears that Henrietta had Maud out-of-wedlock..

Sarah married Thomas J. Stephens Sep 20, 1866 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Thomas was born in 1800-1805 in VA and died before Jun 4, 1900.

Marriage Notes: Per the research of Posey L. Adkins Jr. <gwadkins@gamewood.net>: Thomas J. Stevens, age 60, widowed, carpenter, son of Reubin and Eady Stevens was married to Sarah F. Hankins, age 30, single, daughter of Reubin A. and Mary Hankins. 20 September 1866. They were married by B. J. Hall.

Note by James C. "Jim" Hankins: The 1850 Census indicates that Sarah was 8 years old, and thus born in about 1842. However, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia marriage records above (barring a transcription error) indicates that Sarah was age 30 on her marriage date of Sep. 20, 1866; that would mean Sarah was born in about 1836 instead of 1842 (about a 6-year discrepancy between two official records).


Children from this marriage were:

+ 1555 F    i. Lorrie Henrietta Stephens was born in Jun 1867 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

   1556 F    ii. Sarah T. Stephens was born in Sep 1871 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

   1557 M    iii. Reuben E. Stephens was born in Jul 1873 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

+ 1558 M    iv. Walter W. Stephens was born in Mar 1878 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

552. Reuben Frank Hankins was born in 1842 in Pittsylvania Co., VA and died before Apr 23, 1930.

Research Notes: This is probably the same Reuben F. Hankins listed in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia Pension applications. If so, then he was wounded in the U.S. Civil War and had applied for a pension. To wit: Hankins, Reuben F., Co. B, 38th Regt. From pension records: Hankins, R. F., age 59 as of October 1902. Wounded in right foot, breast and hip in May 1862 in the Battle of Drury's Bluff, he received $15 yearly.

There is an obvious discrepancy between the 1900 census and the 1910 census. The 1910 census says they have been married 13 years, the first marriage for both, and she has had five children, and five are listed in 1910. However, in the 1900 census, Frank is single, Lucy is listed as Lucy J. Tatum, single, boarder, born May 1871, and also listed is Muncey O. Tatum, 9/12s. Obviously this is the same family but they aren't married, and they are living next door to Joseph and Nancy Tatum. There are two possibilities: 1) Lucy was previously married, but that doesn't seem likely, so Muncey is probably their out-of-wedlock child; or 2) Muncey was born out-of-wedlock to Lucy and someone else, and Frank adopted him after they married. Missing from their family in the 1900 census is Jessie, he is 13 in 1910, and only about 2-3 in 1900. Jessie appears three homes away in the 1900 census in the household of Jessie & Martha Griffith, who have been married 15 years but have no children. Martha is Lucy's sister and would explain his presence there.

In the 1910 census he is 67 and named as his wife is Lucy J., clearly 37, or about 30 years his junior. Oddly, it may be that she was even younger in the the 1900 census gives her age as 29, born May 1871, but in the 1880 census she is age 6, and stair-stepped between siblings which indicates that she was born about 1873 or 1874.

The oddest aspect of all census entries appears in the 1920 census. Here he is listed as 76 and a widow, followed by his children Muncie, Loyd, Lester, and Callie, and (get this) Lucy J. Tatum, 46, single, and housemaid. Lucy is obviously the same person appearing first with him in the 1920 census as Lucy Tatum, then in 1910 as Lucy J. Hankins (his wife), and now in 1920 as Tatum again, then back as Lucy Hankins in the 1930 census. It may very well be that they were never married, but lived as husband and wife, and even represented themselves as married at certain census times. The really odd aspect is that in the 1920 census he lists himself as a widow.

Reuben married Lucy Jane Tatum, daughter of John T. Tatum and Velura A. Unknown, Aug 7, 1892 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. Lucy was born in May 1874 in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

Warren, 24, single, daughter of Sampson and Sarah A. Warren.16 September 1869. Married by Balaam Warren.

559. David M. Hankins was born Jan 17, 1845 in Henry Co., VA, died Jun 20, 1872 in Tunstall, Pittsylvania Co., VA at age 27, and was buried in Hankins Cem., Mtn. Valley, Henry Co., VA.

General Notes: His grave is located about 1.8 miles off Route 623 on Deer Haven Drive. It is on the left side of the road (maybe 20 feet from the highway), across from a mobile home. For these directions, enter Deer Haven Drive from Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, about a mile past County Line Christian Church.

As told by Sallie Fanny Wells Reynolds in 1988, David was given a farm to go to war in place of a Clement man. The Clements were well to do people and owned a lot of land up and down Turkeycock Mountain. David went to war and got killed and his brother George and his mama Jane inherited the farm. This information implies that David died during the war, and that contradicts his death date of 1872. However, he could have died later from complications from wounds received during the U.S. Civil War, so the basic information could still be correct for both his death date, and his farm. Also, since he was still a young man of 27 if he died in 1872, this also indicates he died an untimely death that may have been from injuries during the war.

Research Notes: David's name is clearly spelled Danl in the 1860 Census, but that is obviously a mistake.

David is listed as head-of-household in the 1870 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Whitmell, family #955, July 2: David M. Hankins, 25, retail grocer, real estate / property valued at $300 / $500, self and parents born in Virginia; James Hankins, 19, keeping house, born in Virginia. Note: James is his younger brother.

561. James Madison Hankins Jr. was born in Nov 1849 in Henry Co., VA.

Research Notes: In the 1850 Census, Henry Co., Virginia, James is listed as 9-months old; since the census was taken on July 29, 1850, then James was born about November 1849. In the 1860 Census, his name is clearly spelled "Jas Jr.", 10, born in Virginia. However, his marriage record transcription spells out his name as James Madison.

James is living with his brother David, in the 1870 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Whitmell, Jul 2, 1870, family #955.

Obituary: The Daily Bulletin, Martinsville, Va., Fri., Feb. 28, 1936: Mountain Valley, Va.: George W. Hankins, 76 died Wednesday night a week ago at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Isla (sic) Gregory in Danville, from pneumonia. He was sick three days. The remains were brought to County Line Christian Church of which he was a member and funeral services were conducted by the Rev. W.C. Clark of Callands, after which the remains were carried to his old home place and buried by the grave of his wife, who died about four years ago. Mr. Hankins had been in declining health for over twelve months. He's survived by two daughters, Mrs. Oscar Eanes of near Danville, and Mrs. Isla Gregory of Danville; several grandchildren and a number of nieces and nephews and one brother, Joe H. Hankins of Spray, N.C.

His birth is listed in the book by Beverly Merritt: Birth Records of Henry County, Virginia 1853-1976, p. 48, 16 Feby. 1860: George Washington Hankins, son of James Allen & Elizabeth Jane Hankins.

Note by Jim Hankins: Some sources indicate his middle name is William, and that may be true, however, because "George Washington" is a typical naming in honor America's first President, and the source is based on a review of birth records, this name is listed in this work as George Washington Hankins.

George married Nancy Missouri Lawrence, daughter of Samuel Ervin Lawrence and Rebecca E. Campbell, Nov 1, 1883 in Henry Co., VA. Nancy was born in Sep 1858 in Henry Co., VA. Another name for Nancy was Nannie Lawrence.

Marriage Notes: Ref. Anne Vestal-Miller's book: The Marriage Register of Henry County, Virginia, Vol. II, 1879-1893, pp. 24 & 25, 1 Nov. 1883: Geo. W. Hankins, 23, single, born Henry Co., Virginia, son of J. & E. Hankins, married A.M. Lawrence, 23, single, born Henry Co., Virginia, daughter of S. & B. Lawrence. Note by Jim Hankins: Although this shows her initials as A.M., it is probably incorrect because she is named as Nancy M. in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 census.

567. Robert Lee Hankins was born in Feb 1865 in Henry Co., VA and died before Apr 21, 1910.

Research Notes: The 1870 and 1880 census indicate his birth at about 1865, but the 1900 census says he was born in Feb. 1870; it's likely that his age is understated in the 1900 census, and he died prior to the 1910 census.

Other sources indicate his middle initial as E, but his son's death certificate names him as Robert Lee.

Robert married Julia E. Bowles, daughter of Middleton Grief Bowles and Eliza Jane Wells, Oct 22, 1894 in Henry Co., VA. Julia was born in Mar 1870 in Franklin Co., VA.

Children from this marriage were:

General Notes: The biological father of Elizabeth's children after her marriage to Bill Austin was a question; and since her children bore the Overton surname they apparently were all born out-of-wedlock. Another Elizabeth Overton, same age, and born in Virginia, appears in the 1880 census in Nebraska, and closely resembles her family, but she also appears in the 1900 census, while this Elizabeth also appears in the 1900 census in Virginia, so they are not the same person.

Her death certificate says she was born and buried in North Carolina, but her tombstone is in Virginia.

Research Notes: She's living with her grandmother, Elizabeth Hankins, in the 1860 Census.

She's living with her son-in-law, Henry J. Jones, in the 1900 census. She's 61, widowed, born Oct. 1838, and has 3-of-3 children living. Note: There is no indication that she was ever married, and in the 1910 census she indicates that 3 of 6 children are living. The living 3 are obviously the same 3 stated in the 1900 census. Note: Although named as his mother in the 1900 census, the 1910 census names her as his mother-in-law.

She's living with her son-in-law, Henry J. Jones, in the 1910 Census, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, Callands, family #267: Elizabeth J. Overton, 71, mother-in-law, widowed, 3 of 6 children living, self & parents born in Virginia.
