Hawks Family Genealogy Forum
Pam, thanks for your quick reply and expanding on those lines for me. A copy of your aunt Lena's book would be wonderful. I will be happy to pay the costs.
I have spent part of the evening probing the Henderson line. There was a branch apparently from Kent/Hanover Co. that may have then been in Henrico Co. and eventually to Greenville Co., NC. That is a common migration route for Hawks collateral families. Additionally, the name Christian for female members was used in the early 1700's. So, one might wonder if John Hawkes wife Christian could be the source of the Henderson name in the family. That would be a stretch for my lines use of the name, though I do not know the families of two of my Hawks grandmothers during that period.
Fredrick Hawkes/Hawks would likely have been either a nephew or a first cousin once-removed to my Abraham. There is a long story here to tell, but there is not a hard proof.
