Hi Chuck,
Oral history had the family Scot-Irish no supporting info on that but it has been past down through the generation.
Timothy Hankins oral history had sons three known to me.
Joseph Hankins 1764 apx
Timothy Hankins 1767-1827
John Hankins has no information
All moved to Ohio from New Jersey 1790'ds apx.
Josephs son William was born in Pennsylvania 1792 apx.

These familys on the tree are not small by any means largest I have found so far is 18 children.

So only three sons are known. They end up in Cochocton,Ohio. Nothing is known about John other than the fact he is memtion in Timothy's will in 1827.

I have two areas which I am recording Hankins line.
First is my known relations apx. 3400 people mostly on the Hankins side.
2nd.Hankins from New Jersey about 1400 names collected do far looking for that link that ties all of us together.
My personal feeling is that the line starts with Richard Hankins in New Nertherlands 1658. His mirgarion to New Sweden which we call New Jersey started in the late 1600'ds to 1700'ds. Most of his children are unknown.

Most Hankins lines get to New Jersey in the 1700'ds and draw a blank. All mention a common oral lineage Scottish or Scot-Irish which I myself have found no supporting information.
This information has been passed down over 250 years which would lead me to a common bond. So far my Hankins line is very English.

Also names in the line are repeated from generation to generation.

John Hankins 2/10/1799-10/15/1879 dies in Ohio
John Lewis Hankins 12/25/1825 Pa.8/14/1892 Iowa
(Lewis is a family name for me connection unknown)
John Lewis Hankins 1/18/1873 Iowa-9/15/1936 Mo.
Timothy Hankins 1769-1827 has a son John birthdate unknown
A grand total of 48 John Hankins so far.

The strong use of repreative names would also supported a possible common family tree.
Hope to hear from you Jeff
