Does anyone have information on the William Hawkins family who lived in Morgan County AL in 1830 and 1840. I found a marriage record for William Hawkins & Lurana/Susannah Malone 1824 Morgan Co. AL. William Hawkins had disappeared from census by 1850, but there were four Hawkins males listed, 3 of them living with George Morrow family: Jeremias, Orlando and James (ages 17,15,11). A William Hawkins, age 19, lived in Orme household. None of these individuals was in the 1860 Morgan Co. Census.
My ggg grandfather, James M. Hawkins, was b. ca. 1838 in AL. He was in Desoto Co. MS by 1858, when he married Heressa Elizabeth Cannon. . My James named his only son Orlando, which is not a very common name. I am trying to find out if my James M. Hawkins is the same person as the James Hawkins in 1850 Morgan Co. AL census. I would appreciate any information on this Morgan County Hawkins family.
