In Reply to: Blue Ribbon Sandwich Co / Hankins Family by Suzanne DeVine of 1986

Hi Suzanne, I found Jake Dixon Hankins World War I Draft Registration card. He was living in Bus_by, Hopkins Co., TX. He was born 17 Aug 1900 and was a day laborer for his brother James R. Hankins, Jefferson, TX. Source: World War I Draft Registration Cards 1917-1918, ancestry.com.

A Jacob Hankins Last Residence=Quinlan, Hunt Co., TX, b. 17 Aug 1900, d. Aug, 1978. His social sec. # was assigned in TX before 1951. Source: Social Security Death Index.

I didn't find anything for Mary or Bobbie. However, when you post an inquiry it is very important to tell where and when they were born even if it is a guess.

I didn't find anything on the Blue Ribbon Sandwich Co. after going through several pages of Google search results. I didn't review them all so you might want to try that.

I've heard that the Old Red Museum, Dallas, http://www.oldred.org/ doesn't do research. However you might want to ask them if they have anything in their files. If they protest you could offer to make a donation for their time.

If that doesn't work out, I'd contact the Universities or colleges near Dallas and talk to their libraries. Some organization must be keeping track of historical institutions in that town. Successful Searching!
