Our Dead Relatives

Hawkins Family

The Hawkins were my father's Grandmother Samantha Ellen Hawkins Park's family.

Samantha was born at Antwerp, Ohio, on March 4, 1880. Her mother died when she was a small child and she was raised by her aunt. They moved to western Kansas in the early 1880's, then moved to White Cloud, Kansas after a short time.

Samantha's grandfather Robert Hawkins was killed in action in the Civil War at the Battle of Atlanta. He was a private in the 68th Ohio Veteran Volunteer Infantry. He was killed by a minnie ball in the left temple.
