I am a direct descendant of Andrew Jackson Hancock. He is my G-G-Grand Father. Jackson was a Confederate Veterian and his father was Larkin Hancock.
According to the 1850 census, Larkin was born in Georgia around 1797 and was a farmer. He first shows up in February of 1818, when he served in the 1st Seminole Indian War His company formed part of the 2nd Regiment Georgia Militia. Under command of the famous General Andrew Jackson, the 2nd Regiment campaigned in Florida. He next shows up in the records as having drawn in the Creek Land Lottery from Wilkes County in 1821. (His parents are at this moment unknown, but give me time.) He moved into Pike Co, Georgia by 1826 as he had a term of service between 1826 and 1836, as a Lieutenant of the Pike County Georgia Militia. He married his wife Mary Collins on Oct 9th, 1828 in Pike. Larkin died after 1850, either in Pike or Campbell Co. Mary is listed as head of the household in the 1860 Campbell Co. census, and was in Campbell County prior to May of 1859, as that is when the oldest son Jackson married there. Larkin either died before she came to Campbell or just after. His last resting place is unknown at this time.
Their children are:
Andrew Jackson ( 1829-1893 ) It can be assumed that Jackson is named after General Andrew Jackson, as Larkin served under him during the 1st Seminole war.
William ( c.1834 - ? ) mar. Mary --- Co. C, 3rd GA Battalion CSA
Margarette "Mary Ann" ( c.1839 - ? ) Marr E. P. Word July 2, 1881 in Carroll Co. GA.
Cornelius ( c.1841 - ? ) There is no other record of Cornelius other than the census' of 1850 and 1860. It is possible that he was known under another name.
