States: Virginia: Henry
I am tracing my Hawkins family. I have traced them back to Stokes Co., NC, where the daughter of my ancestor Benjamin Hawkins, m. Daniel Newman in 1797. Her name was Sally Hawkins. I don't know if this is the same Daniel Newman or a son of one of these Newmans, but another researcher has suggested to me that my Hawkins family might have come to NC from Henry Co., VA, because he found Hawkins, Taylor and Newman families living together there. Daniel Newman and Sally Hawkins moved to TN with the Hawkins family. Benjamin Hawkins died there in 1827. They are named in probate records there.
