Surnames: HAWKINS, BROWN, MASON, HARRIS, RODDEN, REDDEN, PANTER, PATTERSON, CONNER, BELL
I am searching for my gg grandfather and his family. His name was Jeptha M. HAWKINS. I have reason to believe that he was born in Forsythe, Georgia. I have over 200 pages of Jepthaís Civil War records and I find W.D. HAWKINS mentioned in a few places. Jeptha was born around 1828 and died 2/7/1911 in Fannin County, Georgia.
In the papers it mentioned Davidís wife as a witness. She states that David abandoned his family and is rumored to be in Cherokee County, NC.
Jepthaís first wife Angeline died 8/15/1888 in Mineral Bluff, Fannin County, Georgia. In the 1880 Census of District 10, Polk County, Tennessee the family has the following children: Flora A., John D., Lou E. (which is my great grandmother and her death certificate lists her name as, Martha Lou Ellen HAWKINS-MASON), Jeptha M. and Amanda E.
Daughter Flora married George CONNER. Another daughter, Amanda married name was PATTERSON. Another daughter married W.L. BELL. Daughter, Francisco was married to John REDDEN. My great grandmother, Martha Lou Ellen HAWKINS married James Perry MASON.
Jeptha's second marriage to Mary Adele HARRIS on 7/31/1890 either in Copper Hill, Tennessee or Ducktown, Polk, Co., Tennessee and they had the following children; Samuel, George, Gillie, Sarah Jane, Harriett Ann, Darcus Ann, and William Cager. I have additional information on this family.
My great great grandfather, Jeptha M. HAWKINS had a brother by the name of William David HAWKINS.
