Hi, Toria Crews. I am the gr gr gr granddaughter of Polly Ann Hawkins Burgess (Nee Clack) and her second husband, Watson Burgess. Delia Williams is believed to be the daughter of her first husband, Thomas Hawkins. Also the name Coleman was handed down from their slave master. Remind you that the Coleman's and Clacks related. There was a lot of incest going on during slavery. Example: My Gr gr gr gr grandfather Wilder Clack Incest Two of his daughters that I know of, (Polly and Sabrina Briney Clack) I am the long lined granddaughter of both! I have a few great cousins and a great uncle who are almost 100 yrs of age and they are still alive and well. I will get answers to anything that may interest you!
