And how about Frederick Hawk and wife, Hanna MYSTERIOUS - 1850c, Washington Co VA??? Jack
*HH1022: HAWK, Frederick B. [or D.], 50; Hannah D., 54; Sarah G., 16 [mar Thos. Jordan and first, 1863, Martin B. Tyler]; John A. [Andrew – mar 1876, WCV, Francis McCracken], 13: (In WCV 1860 and 1870c. Frederick Hawk is mentioned in the estate of Archibald Orr, although one researcher asserts there is no kinship connection to this family. See WCV WB 14: p. 179: ...JAMES H. ORR Admr. of ARCHIBALD ORR decd. In Account with The Estate. Dr. …Sales of personal estate made 13 Feb 1856… $1470.94. For cash recd. of JAMES ORR & JACOB LYNCH Exors of MOSES C. ORR decd. on account of intestates distributive share of the estate of said MOSES C. deceased… of FREDERICK D. HAWK; ARTHUR ORR; Emory & Henry College.../// All three listed also in WCV, 1860c, and 1870c; not located 1880c./// The middle name of daughter, Sarah GOODIN Hawk, might be a clue to Hannah’s surname?/// Info of R. Ford: Archibald ORR Inventory sale, 12 Feb 1856, Washington Co., VA Will Book 13:499-507:
There were many buyers including Andrew. J. HAWKS who bought:
2 books, $0.10 (page 499),
50 bushels of corn at 41 cents a bushel, $20.50 (page 506).

James H. ORR, Administrator of Archibald ORR deceased. In Account with the Estate, 1859, Washington Co. Will Book 14:179-181.
For cash received of Frederick D. HAWKS amount of note due deceased, $47.25 (page 179),
For cash paid Frederick D. HAWKS account, voucher No. 18, $6.00 (page 180).
(No other entries for Frederick).

There is no relationship between the HAWKS and the ORRs.

Andrew HAWKS may have lived in the general area south of where Archibald ORR lived. Andrew was enumerated in Dwelling # 1131 in the 1850 census of WC and Nelson BEATIE who owned land in the Forks area between the Middle & South Forks of the Holston River (south of Edmondson Dam on the Middle Fork) was in Dwelling # 1132. Isaac A. McQUOWN who also owned land in the Forks area was in Dwelling # 1128.

Archibald ORR owned land (north of Edmondson Dam and west of Indian Run) per a 250 acre deed from his father James ORR on 06 Oct 1837 (WC Deed Book 13:126-127).)
