Re: Could this be Will HAWKINS-Update
In Response To: Re: Could this be Will HAWKINS in 1900? ()
I have found another possible match for Will HAWKINS in a bordering county of Elbert. I thought I had a good memory, but after going back out to the storage unit to dig out my box of compiled notes I came across this Will born 1880:
1900 Wilkes County,Pents District 176, ED 114, sheet 11B
I don't know tho, becuase in Will's WWI draft card he was born in August 1880...however, I'm not beyond considering a month of birth difference as most people traced thru the census were lucky to know their ages! There is no George born 1890 either in this household and I'm still convinced that they were cousins. Cannot find a Will/William in 1910 or 1920 Wilkes County, so either this Will died or moved out of the county into another. Sanders and Anna Eliza (BURNES)HAWKINS are in Wilkes County thru 1920. They married in Wilkes County on 24 Nov. 1879..on the 1880 Census William is age 01 month.
