I believe William Dawkins to be the son of Elijah Dawkins and his first wife Elizabeth Lowe based on Elijah and Elizabeth appearing on the Little River Church Records with William and his family in Abbeville County, South Carolina and the family's subsequent dispersal to Alabama (Cherokee and Pickens Counties), Georgia (Walker County) and Arkansas (Independence and Izard Counties). My search to solidly prove Elijah and Elizabeth as William's parents continues.


Land bought: 480 Acres (NW 1/4 of NW 1/4 sec 15, S 1/2 of SE 1/4 sec 9, T18 R15 W) and 480 Acres (S 1/2 of NW 1/4, SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 & W 1/2 of SE 1/4 sec 10, T18 R15 W)
Date: 30 January 1873
Place: Pickens County, Alabama
Land sold: to his son Stephen J Dawkins S1/2 of SE1/4 S9; NW 1/4 of NW 1/4 S15; S 1/2 of NW 1/4 S10; SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 S10; SW 1/4 of S10; W 1/2 of SE 1/4 S10 all in T 18 R13W, Pickens County, Alabama on 01 Aug 1894.[1]
