I just found your message about the Webbs, Halls, Hawkins, etc. I have Ruth Hawkins who married Jonathan Webb in my family. Have you found more since your post of four years ago? I have written a book, Once a Hoosier, Volume II, The Hawkins Book. In it I have documented many of the extended families. One of which is the Webbs. Ruth's parents came out of Maryland, as did many of the other families that came into Sullivan Co/NC at that time ca 1769. The Cross, Cox, Webb, Crockett, Malone, etc families were fellow travelers. They picked up other families as they went on down the Valley of VA old wagon road/ War Path/Buffalo Trace. They were the North of HGolston Men in the Fincastle County, VA Militia in 1774 in Dunmore's War. Several of these families stayed put for a while. My ancestor, Matthew Hawkins was settled in what today is Wilkes Co, NC, but then was TN. in the 1780's. By the early 1790's he is down in SC north of the Pacolate River. Other families in this group went down there, also. Then about 1799, they all start coming back up to around Knoxville. From there they start west in the 18-teens. In SC there were Halls, Brasels (Braswells) Hawkins, Whites, and others that were previously up in NE TN earlier. Some of my Hawkins went up to Dearborne/Franklin Cos IN. Other cousins went to Fayette and Bartholomew Cos IN, and still others went to Fountain Co IN. All related. Some of them from IN went out to Wayne and Lucas Cos Iowa. I probably have your family in my book, but it is at the publishers. It will be done in about eight weeks. I have used original records to document this line and many of the extended families, and have photocopies of these records in the book. Pruitt comes to mind and of course Webb. Lewis, Crockett, White, Brison, Campbell, Hackleman...really the families the Hawkins married into...
I just want to touch base with you in case you may have need for some of the information I may have. Jeanne Bornefeld
