I know this posting is about 5 or 6 years later, but Mary Gilmore Hawkins was a sister of my husband's 2nd Great Grandfather William Gilmore. Tom Newlud's Gilmore ancestry as listed is pretty much correct, they were part of the family of Arba and Lovinia Gleason Gilmore.
If Tom happens to be still watching, there was no way to contact you directly so am doing it here, if you would care to be in touch still. It looked as if your research was pretty thorough so am not sure if we can be a help, and it would be mostly the Gilmore line.
However I did find a letter in the Broome Co. Library which intrigued us. Obviously from a Hawkins descendant who,in 1952,lived in Ohio. From someone by the name of Erma, she had hunted for the Hawkins Cemetery outside Coventry and called on my husband's Grandparents in Afton and his Mother. It is such a nice letter in that she mentions what a wonderful time she had with them. They then visited the Coventry Cemetery but did not venture back in the woods to find the Hawkins Cemetery. No address or last name was given, the envelope was not with the letter. It is in the Erma Shepherd Griffith files at the Library, was she a Historian in the 1950's? So the letter was from Erma to an Erma, very confusing at first.
