What HAWKINS are you researching? Below is the information on the HAWKINS family that I am researching. Paula

My great great grandparents, Jeptha and Angeline HAWKINS have been hard to research. Their daughter, Martha Lou Ellen HAWKINS-MASON was my great grandmother. Martha married James Perry Mason in 1887 in Hamilton County, TN. Below is the only information that I have able to find on the family and their children.

Martha was born in Soddy or Ducktown Tennessee approx. 1864. James was born approx 1855 in Soddy or Ducktown. They settled in Hartford, Arkansas (Sebastian County) where they are buried.

The following is the Schedule of Free Inhabitants in the 913 District Government Militia in the County of Fannin, State of Georgia enumerated by Thomas R. Trammell, Asst. Marshall on June 6, 1860, for the Post Office MORGANTON

Eliza 7 F NC
Elizabeth 5 F NC
Sophia 3 F NC
Sarah 19 F Hskpr GA

NOTES FROM 1870 and 1880 CENSUS:
In the 1870 Census, the last name was spelled Hawkins. It shows Angeline being born in Georgia.

Daughter; Flora A. was in the census being 16 years old.

In the 1870 Census, it shows Jeptha being a coal miner. In the 1880 Census, he is a farmer.

Since the 1870 Census, two children were born: Jeptha M. age 10 and Amanda E. age 6.

It appears that the family lived in the same house on both censuses.

My great grandmother; Lou E. (as name appears in the 1880 Census) is called Louellen in the 1870 Census. I was told that her real name was Martha Lou Ellen Hawkins-Mason

I have a William David (WD) Hawkins in my family tree. Below is the information on the family. Paula


I am searching for my gg grandfather and his family. His name was Jeptha M. Hawkins. I have reason to believe that he was born in Forsythe, Georgia. I have over 280 pages of Jeptha’s Civil War records and I find W.D. Hawkins mentioned in a few places. Jeptha was born around 1828 and died 2/7/1911 in Fannin County, Georgia.

In the papers it mentioned David’s wife as a witness. She states that David abandoned his family and is rumored to be in Cherokee County, NC.

Jeptha’s first wife Angeline died 8/15/1888 in Mineral Bluff, Fannin County, Georgia. In the 1880 Census of District 10, Polk County, Tennessee the family has the following children: Flora A., John D., Lou E. (which is my great grandmother and her death certificate lists her name as, Martha Lou Ellen Hawkins-Mason), Jeptha M. and Amanda E.

Jeptha's second marriage to Mary Adele Harris on 7/31/1890 either in Copper Hill, Tennessee or Ducktown, Polk, Co., Tennessee and they had the following children; Samuel, George, Gillie, Sarah Jane, Harriette Ann, Darcus Ann, and William Cager. I have additional information on this family.

My great great grandfather, Jeptha M. Hawkins had a brother by the name of William David Hawkins.
