Hi Bobbie -
I found a thread on Ancestry that may help. Sounds like the same info.
As copied from an email thread between the two people:
"Thanks for the response. Is W A Hankins first wife's name Margaret McClure? I don't know. Do these dates fit with your data. ie. Born 1826 in TN. Lived in AL where he enlisted in Cavalry in 1862, Company surrendered in 1864. he married, second, in 1865. I suppose this means his first wife, Margaret? died before the 2nd marriage. He was supposed to have had 7 children by the first wife.
If we estimate that he may have married, 1st, at about, age 22, the marriage to Margaret would have been in 1848 or so. Probably in TN or AL. He could have been married 16-17 years before 1865 when he married his 2nd wife, Catherine Shelton."
Here is the message board thread:
Hope this helps!
Merry Christmas! Tami
