Looking for Agnes Collier m Joseph William Hankins 18 Dec 1818 and six children found on 1830 C then he remarried

+3 votes

What happened to Agnes Collier and her's and Joseph children after the 1830 census of Lawrence Co Ohio Upper Township? In 1832 Joseph William Hankins remarries to Elizabeth Hepler widow of William Davidson of Lawrence Co Ohio and migrated to Madison and Henry Co Ind.  No information can I find on Agnes and childrens whereabouts or their names. Did she divorce and remarry? Did they all die of some illness? Nowhere do I see any Hankins children following Joseph in his second marriage.

I would like to note that in the Ohio marriage records they have this Joseph Hankins listed as Hawkins which is wrong. His father was Daniel Hankins Sr.

Agnes parents were James Collier and Martha Baker.  A note to keep in mind, while Lawrence Gen Society was making chart of marriages with their parents listed they made a mistake and parents of Anna Collier m Daniel Hankins 1825 was Meschack Collier and Rebecca Foster. You can find proof of this on his probate records in Madison Co Ind where he lists his daughter Anna and Daniel as representative. It has been hard to get someone to make this correction. Who do I contact to do this?

Also another unsolved mystery is when and where did my ggreat/gggreatgrandmother Anna Collier b 1805 found on 1880 census of Ryan Township Sumner Co Kansas die? Her married name was Hankins and last found in home of her eldest son Roland Hankins who moved on into Dodge City Ks 1882-83 and then on into Oregon. No grave has been found so I made a findagrave page for her. Other counties to consider would be Harper and Clark counties. I just can't find a paper trail.

Your question is a direct hit for two detached branches I have recorded with very little information. I have:

(1) Anna Collier Hankins b1805 m Daniel Hankins b1805 and s/o Daniel and Elizabeth Hankins.

(2) Agnes Collier Hankins m Joseph William Hankins b1798 Kanawas, VA, s/o Daniel and Elizabeth Hankins.

Note that Daniel and Joseph William Hankins are brothers and also a brother of Rollen(sp?) Hankins. A biography can be found on FindaGrave here: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/21925523/roland-hankins

----- Also, I found a record for Hankins men fighting in the Civil War in this publication: -----

Fall Creek Township, Henry County, Indiana in the War of the Rebellion, J. A. YOUNG
NEWCASTLE, IND.: Courier Co. Book and Job Printing Rooms, 1887

Although there are numerous pages of the Units they fought in, here is a summary of the Hankins in the book:

Pg 27: Hankins, Richard
Pg 32: Joseph Hankins
Pg 33: Richard Hankins

COMPANY H, 69th Infantry
Pg 50: Hankins, William B., Wounded at Richmond. Ky.; discharged Nov. 24, 1862. on account of wounds.(H, 69th Inf)
Pg 50: Hankins, William N., Mustered out with regiment.(H, 69th Inf)
Pg 52: Pvt William B Hankins, Discharged

Pg 64:
Corporal Hankins, Absolem, COMPANY K, 105th INFANTRY. (MINUTE MEN) Mechanicsburg, Entered U.S. service in Company E, 9th Cavalry.
Private Hankins, Daniel, COMPANY K, 105th INFANTRY. (MINUTE MEN) Mechanicsburg, Entered U.S. service in Company H, 140th Infantry.

I have some other books to search through in order to try and fill in the blanks for the Indiana men. Would love to get our info together.
