Hi Ken,

Good to hear from you. Yes I too have the Marriages of Botetourt Co. The marriage you note of Robert Harvey and Martha (Borden) Hawkins in particular since Robert was the father of Lewis Harvey who married Frances Burwell. I believe the connection may go back to the first wife of William Henry who was born 1755 but again I don't have a marriage for that timeframe nor the surname. Please remember me in your research if ever you come across a Henry connected through your Burwell lines. I find it interesting that in TN the Hawkins had a slave named Burwell. Then the Guardian of our William A. Henry was Lewis Harvey who married Frances T. Burwell. Many times the slaves were named for their first masters.

Carolyn
