Hi I realize this is an outdated post. Thomas Hawkins is my grandmothers grandfather, my grandmother is Willie Lee Hawkins and she is the daughter of Marion Francis Hawkins and Ellamae Banta Hawkins. Marions parents were Thomas Hawkins and Rebecca Hester Flora. I have always been told that Thomas went away and left his family and was never heard from again. My dad is Milton Douglas Hawkins. Do you think we could be related. Feel free to email me anytime.
