The Lawhon and Gardner families lived in the Beaukiss area of Williamson County, which is close to Lee and Bastrop Counties.
I don't have proof, and just guessing, but look into the Marmaduke Gardner and Rhoda Caroline Ussery line for Hattie. I bet she is a granddaughter.
I don't have all lines extended and the one's I do are mainly the females, because they tie to my lines.
Do an internet search for Marmaduke Gardner b 1812 NC d 1879 Lee Co., TX, buried Lawhon-Gardner Cemetery, Lee Co.
Marmaduke and Rhoda had 19 children.
Try this site http://www.geocities.com/cindycaseyiii/rhodauss.htm and maybe Cindy can help you find Hattie.
This is from the Handbook of Texas online:
SILOAM, TEXAS (Williamson County). Siloam was on Middle Yegua Creek in southeast Williamson County, one-half mile from the Lee county line. The settlement was founded in 1854 by Marmaduke Gardner and had a church for six white members and one black. The town's Universalist church was rebuilt and moved several times over the years, and a Universalist convention was held there in 1907. Siloam was also the site of a rural school, which in 1903, when it had four teachers and 110 pupils, was the sixth largest white district school in the county. The population of the community declined during the twentieth century, its school merged with Thrall's in 1951, and by 1977 Siloam no longer appeared on county highway maps.

Also, my cousin has a lot of LAWHON information.
Hope this helps.
