James Wilson Hawk
May I make a suggestion regarding this memorial? You should consider creating a memorial page for Matilda (Fampton) Hawk, with a burial designation of "place unknown." This will allow you to link James Wilson Hawk with his birth mother, as well as his father. Otherwise, James Wilson Hawk will continue to appear, incorrectly, in the list of children of John Melvin and Sarah Ann (Stephens) Hawk. You might also wish to link Matilda directly to John Melvin, on John's memorial page.

For the record, it is my understanding that Matilda's maiden name was Fampton, not Frampton. Admittedly, the records are not clear on this matter, but the preponderance of evidence seems to favor Fampton.

Regards,

May (Trackwell) Hawk
Michael:

I did some checking. Ancestry.com shows that Miranda May Trackwell was married first to Leonard Wheeler, and second to James Litherland in May 1861. Her third husband is given as "Mr. Hanks," but we, of course, know this to be Willis Elliott Hawk, whom she married in Shelton County, W.T., on March 24, 1886. I have a copy of the marriage certificate, which gives her name as "May Litherland." While I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the Ancestry.com information, I feel it should be accepted at face value in the absence of more definitive documentation.

Feel free to use any or all of this information to update May's Find A Grave memorial page, if you wish. You will note that I've linked May to Willis Hawk's memorial, which I created today.

I've also established memorial pages for the rest of John and Sarah (Stephens) Hawk's children, and will be working to fill out those pages with additional biographical data as time permits.

Regards,

Ed Fisher

May (Trackwell) Hawk
Michael:

Do you have documentation to support a marriage between Miranda "May" Trackwell and James Wilson Hawk, as you have indicated on your Find A Grave memorial pages? There is considerable mystery surrounding May's several marriages, and I was hoping you could clear up some of the confusion.

My research shows that May was married to Willis Elliott Hawk, a younger half-brother to James Wilson Hawk, in Shelton County, Washington Territory, on March 24, 1886. Her surname at that time was apparently "Lutherland," indicating she had at least one marriage prior to Willis Hawk. James Wilson Hawk died in 1877, so it if quite possible she had married him as her first husband.

May's obituary --- I have a copy somehwere in my files --- states that May was the wife of "W. E. Hawk." Willis Elliott was the only male Hawk in those days with these particular initials, so the connection seems clear.

Anyway, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this matter.

Thank you so much for his headstone. Most likely would never have seen it without you volunteering.
This is such a great service and has been a real treasure for me. Thank you again!

The funeral home found the grave with the stone. If you ever get back out there, the location is Block 35, Division 2, Lot 2, Space 6, and "Tim" can direct you to it.

Thanks again for all your help!

Thanks for the pictures you got in response to my request.

I'm sorry to say that none of these are actually Hughie. Hughie should be on a stone with Anna L. Morris.

Best regards,
Paul
