From page 465 of Counties of Clay and Owen, Indiana: Historical and Biographical ... edited by Charles Blanchard

GILBERT HANKINS was born in Shelby County, Ky., October 11, 1818, and is the seventh of eleven children born to William and Mary Hankins, natives of Virginia and Kentucky respectively, and both of English extraction. Gilbert settled in Putnam County, Ind., about 1840. His father died in that county; his mother is still living, aged ninetyseven years. December 24, 1844, our subject married America Armstrong, danghter of Levi Armstrong, of Hendricks County, Ind., formerly of Kentucky. This union has been crowned by the birth of nine children, all of whom are living. At the time of their marriage, they were in limited circumstances, but, by perseverance, they soon accumulated a competence. Mr. Hankins is a blacksmith, and has worked at the trade until seven years ago, when he removed to Carbon and is now keeping a boarding house. He has always held to the Baptist's doctrine, though not a church member. His wife has been a member of that church since she was thirteen years old. Mr. Hankins is a Democrat and a respected citizen.
