    1. [HAWKINS-US-NORTHERN] HAWKINS Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" three old photographs belonging to the HAWKINS Family of Missouri. The first is a photograph of Reuben HAWKINS which was taken at the Dunlap Studio in Chillicothe, MO. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Reuben appearing to be in his 40's or 50's at the time it was taken. In addition to his name, someone has written "Jennie's Uncle" on the back of the photograph. The second photograph is of Ethie HAWKINS and was taken at the same studio in Chillicothe, MO, likely at the same time in the 1880's with Ethie likely in her 30's or 40's at the time. In addition to her name, someone has written "Uncle Reuben's wife" on the back of the photograph. The third photograph is identified as including Jennie HAWKINS and was taken at the Genelli Studio in St. Louis, MO. There are three girls in the photograph with Jennie indicated as the girl on the left. This third photograph was likely taken in the 1890's with all three young ladies likely in their teens at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding the family: Reuben HAWKINS b. 1834 in Franklin Co. IN to parents David HAWKINS (b. 17 May 1805) and Margaret J. ALLEY (b. 6 Jan 1811 in Russell Co, VA). Reuben was the oldest of the couple's 8 children including, Reuben; Jasper; Samuel; Nathan; John; Zerelda; William W.; and Elvira Ann HAWKINS all born between 1834 and 1851 in IN and MO. Reuben HAWKINS married Nancy Ethaline HICKLIN (b. 25 Dec 1845 in Livingston Co. MO) on 1 Mar 1866. Census records provide the following: 1870 census of Chillicothe, MO: Reuben HAWKINS, age 37, a Life Insurance Agent, born IN Nancy E.
