O.K. here,s the thing we took the DNA.test and we turned out to be really Hawkins.The mystery is why was there a name change,did Wm.start off as a Hawkins and then change his name to Walton are we all Hawkins,then where did Walton Come in,some started off as Hawkins then changed their name to Walton and vice versa.We heard all of our life that Tom my grandfather got in trouble ran away and changed his name to Hawkins my mother told me that story my mother died thinking she was really a Walton when she was a Hawkins.Freeman Walton is on the 1900 cenus with Tom listed as his brother.We saw who Tom,s father was on his d.cert.His fathers name was Billy Hawkins but we dismissed it because we thought we were Waltons.My cousin put his DNA in a bank as a Walton and they didn,t understand why since his name was Hawkins and he matched the Hawkins Dna,crazy story i know but i hope i live to find out WHY.
