Thank you for posting this photo. I am researching this family for other family members. The photo was a treat to find.

The headstone photo has been posted. His stone has his year of birth as 1866.

Lewis Hawk
I meant George was born after Lewis was taken prisoner.

RE: George Hawk
My statement regarding his birth record says "perhaps she had George out of wedlock...don't know."

He does show in the 1870 census as being 4, living with his mother, 2 siblings named Hawk and one sibling named Carnicom (misspelled Carmean on the census). Being 4 in 1870 would put his year of birth as 1865 to 1866 depending on the date of the census. Lewis was taken prisoner in June of 1864 and died while in captivity. If the dates are correct and George was born in July of 1866 his birthday is 23 months after Lewis passed and it would be the longest human gestation on record.

I have requested a photo of the headstone.
