According to the info. I have, mostly from Dwayne Allen Hawpe, Trezevant Calhoun Hawpe, "T.C.", was born in Franklin Co., GA (according to decendants). He spent his early years around Jackson, Franklin, and Hall Co., GA, with his father, George W. Hawpe. When his father moved to Tenn in 1836, T.C. went along.
Supposedly some time after 1840, he married for the first time - wife's name, unknown. From this first marriage, he had two children, a daughter and a son, who was born in early 1845 in Weakly Co., TN. T.C. appears on the 1845 Tx List of neighboring Graves Co, KY as the owner of three horses and 5 head of cattle worth $50. Sometime after the birth of this first son, his wife and daughter died, but from the date date of his first son's birth it would seem to be after Jan 1845.
On 31 May 1848, T.C. married Electa Ann Underwood Bethurum in Dallas, the daughter of Cyrus and Fanny Underwood. She was a widow with two children, Eliza J. Bethurum and Robert P. Bethurum.
T.C. was one of the first sheriffs of Dallas, TX! He was quite a colorful character.
