I am in to preserving the old photos I have for the Hankins book and would like any additions you all might have to help me. I have blond hair blue eyes and one day I will be an ancestor whose descendants might say, I've found an old box of poety Georgie Ann wrote, it's as if I already know her.

They were my grandpa Ernest Frank's parents.
In respect for my Mother, Viola Jensen Hankins Miller linage, I spent most of my life with this side of the family after age 12. I was raised between two uncles and two aunts who were Jensen/Casella. (John Jensen m Ida Casella and Thelma Jensen m Joseph Casella) Viola Jensen's parents were John Edward Jensen #107285077 married Lydia Christine Nielsen, # 107286235. Their linages can be traced by using findagrave by going to thier pages. Grandpa had a tremendous sense of humor and retired from the postal service and Grandma was a homemaker. She loved knitting and tatting. I lost them when I was young. My Mother lived with me for the past thirty years, passing on 4 Mar 2013. I come from a LDS family on Mother's side of the tree and from a Babtist side on my Father's side of the tree. I am always searching for more cousins, far and near to share photos and stories with. My Mother was cremated and does not show up when entering her name as Viola "Toots" Jensen Miller. Her # is 106197273. She once told me, when she was growing up her parents did not show the kids love and affection that when she became a mother she would give all the love she possibly could give. And you know what, her patience, her love and her perservering on raising us four kids is testimony to that. We often talked about the day we would have to part and she said, "You will be okay, when you need me just ask for me and I will be there." And she knows how much I tried to keep her in this world with me. I love her so much she was more than a Mother, she was my friend through life. -Georgie Ann Hankins Waddell
RE: Myrtle Phelemena Peggar I don't know much about the Hankins but have quite a bit of information and history on the Peggar family. I have been tracking my great-grandfather Mitchell back to his father John Louis and his grandfather Francis Xavier. My aunt and some of her cousins have done a lot of research. I do have several pictures and would love to see yours. Maybe we can make some identifications. For some reason our phone is out today. I will be away tomorrow but could try to call on Friday if that works for you. We live in Massachusetts so I don't want to call too early since it looks as if you live on the west coast. Judy
RE: Myrtle Phelemena Peggar Myrtle Philomena was the daughter of Mitchell Peggar, my great-grandfather. Mitchell was the brother of Mary Philemena Pegar, both were the children of John Louis and Angeline Emile Pegar. John and Angeline had 12 children. Myrtle married Robert Stephenson in 1925 in International Falls, MN. They lived in Oregon and had one child, Shirley. The names Philomena and Peggar get spelled many different ways. I have several pictures of Myrtle and of the Mitchell Peggar family as well as some family histories. I would love to see what you have. If you would like more information or some pictures, please send me an e-mail address and I would be happy to forward more information to you. It is nice to hear from you.
Smelser/Keesling Newton Willard Keesling is the son of Mary Ann Keesling, not Margaret Smelser (Find A Grave #110125276). Margaret Smelser and Mary Ann Keesling's Father, Andrew Jackson Keesling, were siblings.
As far as the Hankins inquiries, that information is best left for Diane to field, as it is very confusing and as a direct descedant, she has taken the time to really sort it out.
William Hankins Hi Georgie, I dont have parents names of Joseph Hankins. I am related to daughter of William Hankins #46336367 Sarah Hankins who married William Wilkins. I have not found a Carrie in my line, so far. Below is all the information I have regarding my William Hankins. There were many Hankin family living in Indiana. I cant really say if we belong to the same family. Sorry.
About Hankins, Wiliam
William Hankins, was the oldest son of Joseph Hankins (ca. 1765?-1836) and his wife Nancy. In 1811, William married Elizabeth McCarty who is probably buried here. Her name has often been given as Lydia, but the marriage record shows Lida (or Lide) a nickname for Elizabeth.
William was a messenger from the Milton Baptist Church to the Coffee Creek Baptist Association in 1831 when his father, shown as an ordained minister, was also a messenger. This church existed from 1829 through 1836.
The Milton Baptist Church reformed in 1840 with William and Elizabeth as founding members. Other founding members included William's brother Aaron and Aaron's wife Sarah; his brother Moses and Moses' wife Rachel, and Nancy Hankins, widow of William's father. Also a member was Jemima Weathers who was possibly a relative of Nancy Hankins, William's mother.
William left a will that named his wife Elizabeth, but referred only to his children. However, his nine children are outlined in a series of deeds in the 1860s in which heirs sold their interest in his estate.

Mary Dodge I forgot to tell you that I created Mary Dodge and her husband Mott Dodge and their son Glenn Dodge's memorials. I did so after seeing an article about Mary that piqued my interest. According to the cemetery they do not have headstones. What a shame:(
Mary Dodge I found the name you gave "Desislets" as being spelled "Desilets" with records showing several Desilets in Harney County over the years including one in Burns Cemetery with the name "Frank Victor Des Ilets". I found his obit which names his parents with mother being Sara Elizabeth. Bingo! In the 1920 census in Burns there is a Joseph M. and Sarah E. Desilits with a son John F. In the 1930 census in Burns are Joseph and Dora and Dora is born in Arkansas as was Mary Dodge so I suspect that Mary and "Dora" were sisters. A notation on this census says that Dora's name is Sarah Elizabeth Des Ilets. There is a Sarah Desilets with husband "J" who died in Jan. 2, 1933 in Portland in the Oregon Death Index. I will look for her death record at the Archives the next time I go. I like to find parents burial places so I can link their children to them.
Sorry I don't have time to help you with your Beau L'Amore research. I looked on the internet and it appears that he wrote quite a few books.
RE: fag Donald Young 131121954 Hi Georgie, I am sorry for the delay in getting back with you concerning your post about your family. I do not manage any of Don's memorials; they are in the hands of Find-A-Grave. I would suggest that you write to Find-A-Grave and ask that you take over the management of your memorials. I needed to change/add information to some memorials that Don had created and the staff was more than willing to transfer memorials to me for maintenance or to do the edits themselves. Good luck, Debbie
Re: Sarah Ann Cates I'm sorry, I don't have much information about the Hankins family that Sarah Cates married into. We're descended from her second husband George Toles through their youngest daughter Edith Ellen. Best of luck to you, though!
