RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 59773172
Dan, are you a Hanks descendant by chance? I have not written the book, however a Hanks family member has written 2 and will be coming out with a 3rd next year sometime. Her name is Vicky Reany Paulson, and her first book is named Abraham Lincoln's Hanks Family Genealogy. It's a controversial topic and "hot button" for many Hanks and Lee family descendants, as it deals with the ancestry of Lincoln's grandmother. I highly recommend this first book especially. Part of what she wants to do in the 3rd book is expand on the descendants of Thomas Hanks (1759-1834) who was born in VA and died in Logan county, OH. The photos will likely be on a disc or flash drive available at Vicky's website, it's not totally decided on yet. Most of the photos will be old photos that we have been given permission to include, and there will also be photos of grave markers, many of which have been taken by Jonathan Bidwell, who is also working closely with Vicky. Your photo of Robert E. Hanks' marker was so good, and with the accompanying obituary, we really wanted to include it. :D Thanks for your interest!
