Born: February 11, 1881 China Spring, McLennan County, Texas
Died: December 30, 1952 China Spring, McLennan County, Texas
Son of James O & Rebecca Brown Hawkins
If he is the son of James and Rebecca, then he was born in 1875, because his mother died prior to 1880. His Dad shows up on the 1880 census as widowed, and Rebecca died in childbirth giving birth to Alice. All of the children’s year of birth seems to be skewed except for Ida’s.
