Sources

  • [2944] Virginia Marriages to 1800.
  • [2945] Personal Conclusion of Linda McCauley (supported by documentation), John Hankins was in Hopkins County, Kentucky in 1810 Census. He was the only Hankins listed in that census. Barnabas, Polly, Nancy, Rachel, Timothy & Susannah Hankins were married in Hopkins County between 1811-1816 so it is most likely that John is their father.
  • [2947] Personal Conclusion of Linda McCauley (supported by documentation), John Hankins was apparently living at the time his Rev. War Pension was approved in 2/1833.
