William Hanks/Sophia Reams
Posted by: Sandra McCollum (ID *****2850) Date: May 27, 2008 at 15:12:54
  of 506

My 4th gr-grandfather was William Hanks b. 1774 in NC. He died in 1833 in Shelby Co. TX. He was married to Sophia REAMS b. 1794 in NC and she died 23 Aug. 1830 (probably in TX). I am searching for any information on this couple while they lived in TX and their burial sites.
They had a son, Howell Gillium Hanks b. 27 July 1802 in Wilcox Co. AL. He married Rebecca Smith b 24 July 1807. I suspect that he met Rebecca in TX when he and his parents moved there for a while. Howell and Rebecca eventually moved back to AL where they raised their family.
Any help will be appreciated.
