Birth: Mar., 1866
Barton County
Missouri, USA
Death: Sep. 28, 1908
Gage
Ellis County
Oklahoma, USA

Son of a newspaper publisher, Henry homesteaded in Gage, Oklahoma and ran newspaper. He died under mysterious circumstances - poisoned or suicide - no one really knows.
As published on Thursday, October 1, 1908,in Garber Sentinel. (Garber, Okla.), Vol. 9, No. 50, Ed. 1:
"We hear with sorrow of the death of Harry Hawkins at Gage, Oklahoma where he was publishing a paper. Mr. Hawkins worked for us over these years and we never had in our employ a pleasanter man to deal with as in all that time there was not an unpleasant word passed between us. Kind and liberal almost to a fault, he was beloved by all who made his acquaintance. His little family has the sincere sympathy of the Sentinal as we feel as if we had lost a firm personal friend."
