Sylvia Mcintosh/Hawkins/ Anderson
Sylvia Mcintosh and Silvia Hawkins is the same person, she also went by Silvie and also had another last name at one point by Anderson from a marriage. She is my 4X Great grandmother. She was a Creek Freedmen, and also was the daughter of Creek Chief William Mcintosh. This was not put in history books. Her mother was a slave of the Chief named Winnie. Not much is known about Winnie. Silvia was also adopted by the Muskogee Creek Nation under the name Silvia Hawkins. Her son Dave Hawkins is my 3X Great Grandfather. His application for citizenship was rejected by the Muskogee Creek Nation. Is there anyone who may have more info about Silvia and Dave Hawkins? I would really like to know if anyone may have pictures or any type of info about them. They also have Silvia's date of birth off. They made it seem as though she was born after the Creek Chief died. She was actually his daughter and was born before his murder. No one knows exactly what year.
