States: Tennessee: Haywood
I am looking for information about a John H. Hawkins, married to Sarah D, ( probably Pugh was her last name ). They are on the 1850 census for Haywood county. John is listed as a doctor. From a list of marriages from Wilson County, Tennessee, it appears that they married there in 1845. The reason for my interest, is that I have a book which belonged to Thomas J. Henderson, the general and congressman, who lated went to school in Iowa City, and died in Illinois. It appears that a John H. Hawkins also at one time owned the book. Also, the words " Lemuell Sanders,s book " are also written in it. Since Thomas J. Henderson was in Iowa City, at school, in 1845-1846, and since the book was presented to his great grandson Thomas Henderson in 1920, I assume that the other names in the book are of previous owners.
