Someone will help you!  It is difficult with women who were teens at census time and were probably ʻoldʻ married women by the next census isnʻt it?

I would try looking at the neighbors of her family on the 1860 census, you might find a likely young man and have a lead to follow (maybe).
Kristina: I have searched every Elizabeth first name in the counties of Howell, Texas, Phelps, Oregon, and Ozark in Missouri and in counties Fulton, Izard, and Baxter in Arkansas, but not found a match. Her extended families were from these counties. Of course the civil war in these counties experienced lots of tragedies. Two of her three brothers were killed in the war.

Thanks Frank for your help, but John G Goar's wife age 24 in 1860 census of Benton, Howell County, MO is not my Elizabeth. My Elizabeth was born 1844 in Ozark, Howell County, MO and was single age 16 living with her father John Benjamin Hawkins in 1860 in Benton, Howell County, MO census. Richard

Thank you for contacting me. This is not my Elizabeth Hawkins.  My Elizabeth Hawkins (maiden name) was born 1844 in Ozark, Howell County, MO, and was listed in the 1850 census as 5 years old living with her father and siblings. Her mother Minerva Hawkins had died in 1845. She was listed in the  1860 census of Benton, Howell County, MO as 16 years old living with her father and stepmother Lucinda Hawkins. I can't find her listed in the 1870 census of Howell or Texas County of Ohelps County, MO as Elizabeth Hawkins. She either died before 1870 or got married, and I have not been able to discover her married name. Richard W. Hawkins
Richard, I hope it was okay that I added the 1850 and 1860 census sources to her profile to help keep her information in order.  So far I have been unable to locate her.
Thanks Michelle Enke. Do you have  Hawkins ancestors?
Richard, As far as I know I don't have any Hawkins ancestors, but I research a lot in Missouri and wanted to see if I could help.  I also added the death certificate for her brother William and tried to find his obituary to see if siblings were listed, but I did not locate one.  Her sister Permelia's obituary did not list siblings.  Another option is to see if her father had a will listing his children and Ancestry.com has a probate collection.
Michelle: I have done all that and came up empty. Her father John Benjamin Hawkins died in 1868 (speculation), but no obit, will, etc. I can't even confirm he is buried in McElmurry Cemetery near Moody and South Fork, Missouri. The cemetery has small blank stone markers that people say are John Benjamin Hawkins and his children, but nothing in writing. There is an old list of burials there that the McElmurry caretaker provided me, but their names are not listed on it. Only one son and his wife have grave markers, William Harrison Hawkins and wife Martha Jane (Newberry) Hawkins. How do I attach and image here?

If you wish to attach an image to a person's profile, you can select the tab at the top of his profile that says "Images."  At the top of the new page there is a link after Do you have a photo or source image for .... , then the words "Click here to upload it." A new page opens where you can select an image from your computer, in JPG form, and add it to his profile.  Once it is on a WikiTree page, you can then copy and paste a link to the image and put it in a question or a answer on G2G, or reuse it on any other profile.  The first couple of times I did this it was quite confusing.  Ask if you need help!

Richard, here is a WikiTree video for adding photos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWAkQLkVAQc  and the WikiTree help page for adding photos to profiles: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Image_Types 

Once the photo is on the profile, on the image page you can right click on the photo, copy image, go to where you wish to reuse the image, such as G2G, and put your cursor in the spot and then use the keys [ Control ][ v ] to add the image.

Below is an image I added to profile Gaskill-613.  You can add all sorts of images of non-living people or sources.
