Who am I? Who are we? I want to know. There are so many different stories I can’t keep up. I’m directly related to Asa Clevenger and Elisabeth Hanks. Was there another Elisabeth or was she the only one in this Hanks line? I’m trying so hard to distinguish the truth from everything else. Plus I want to meet family :))

Hi Anna,

I assume the Elizabeth Hanks you are referring to is the person referenced at this link?

It looks like there is a lot of information there about the Clevengers, but I can't vouch for the accuracy.  I just stumbled upon it doing a quick Google search.  Unfortunately I don't see any parents listed for this Elizabeth Hanks so I am unable to attempt to trace her back to see if she belongs to the same Hanks line as Lincoln's which is my Hanks family.   

Yes Her parents were John Hanks and Amy Swift. John Hanks was from John Hanks and Sarah Shipley Harper. I’m so far as I know.  I’m trying to link the Lincoln’s through the correct line. It’s where I get confused. I work a lot so the only time I research is when I’m going to bed. So if we’re related.. cool! Let me know if you know anymore family here! I live in Northern Ca! I want to meet my family.
