In Response To: Re: Research trip: Halifax County, NC ()
Hi Deloris, there are lots of Hawkins that originated in the Halifax, NC area...maybe we are kin? I believe my ggrandfather was Orren Hawkins (married Mary Dickens) who was once enslaved to a Ambrose Hawkins (died 1843) in Halifax. Some of the names on your website are familiar and I may have seen in a book written on my family, A Genealogy of the Black Hawkins Family of Halifax County USA (by Terence Wyche - 1995). I think the Arrington & Copeland names show up in the book too, but I need to double check.
