Bill Hawkins Looking for parents of my gg grandparents. George was born 1802, died 1883 in NY. Later married Rhonda Powers. Also need info on George's father. It could be a Jesse Hawkins but need to know for sure. Also descendants of their children. Son Albert B. is the only one I can account for and he is buried in CA with his wife and a son, Howard.

James Hawkins have taken my YDNA, and have joined the Hawkins Worldwide DNA Project .To see my test results for our Hawkins Family go to Related Links on this page below, and click on Hawkins Worldwide DNA Project.After you go on the Hawkins Worldwide DNA Project web site, go to Group #10, this is our Hawkins Family Group, showing Family Trees, pictures, and YDNA test results.
I would like to encourage any member of this family to join the Hawkins Worldwide DNA Project to get a more accurate reading and hopefully help our Hawkins Families tie together.
The Hawkins Worldwide DNA Project, along with Hawkins Group #10, and myself need you or any male Hawkins relative of our Hawkins Family to participate in the Worldwide DNA Hawkins Project.
YDNA test along with paper records will provide proof of our Hawkins Family ties, not only for ourselves at the present time, but for the future Hawkins researchers.
If you are a male Hawkins, you can become a member of the project. To apply for admission to the project go to the HAWKINS Project.
Ladies - The results of a Hawkins father, brother, uncle, or cousin would effectively be your results. Talk to them about participating in our program.

Enid Hawkins My father, Richard Haines Hawkins (III) was born to George (Moredock) and Mary (Braden) Hawkins in Pittsburgh (New Brighton) Pennsylvania on Aug 15, 1916. I believe his paternal grandfather was William Burson Hawkins. My mother, Joan Murray (Parks) married my father on Sept 5th, 1939 in Miami, FLA and much later they had three daughters: Anne Randolph Hawkins (Wilkins), Claire Braden Hawkins (Mayberry) and myself, Enid Campbell Hawkins, age 49, all born in Seattle, Washington. I am the only surviving member left of my immediate family. Mama passed away in 1977 and Daddy in 1982. Given that my parents were in their 40's when they started having children, the remainder of my immediate family and theirs have long since passed and died when I was quite young. This leaves me knowing very little (or being able to ask questions since everyone's deceased) about my family. Does anyone out there know of or are part of the Pennsylvania Hawkins family? To finally have answers would be facinating and appreciated. To have some actual birth oe death dates, places of birth etc would be great. My mom, Joan Murray Parks (b. Louisville, KY but grew up in Miami, FLA) was the daughter of Roy Curtis Parks and Imelda Murray Parks. My father, Richard H. Hawkins met and married my mom while visiting Miami and attending the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh PA (studying aeronautical engineering) then onto a 30 year career with the Boeing company. Please send any fimaily history or info to Ms. Enid C. Hawkins at: [contact link] putting Hawkins Family History in the subject field. Thank you. Enid
