Misc Info for George Hawkins research
The maiden name of Blanche Thomson is Blanche Hines, daughter of Capt. Thomas Jefferson Hines, sr and Nancy J Young. This might help in your search.
Your work is very thorough. Nicely done.
From "Historical Sketch of Forreston by Colonel Bill Cox 22 May 1926, p23
"In 1852 or 1853 there was born to a slave mother in the quarters of General Tarrant a boy child. In his childhood days he was a waiting boy for the General and has been a citizen of the community most of his life. The party referred to is George Hawkins, a man respected by both white and colored because of his life of strict integrity…." "It is said that the late Earl Fort provided in his will that George Hawkins should have a home on the Fort estate [originally part of the Tarrant plantation] during his life."
After the death of Tarrant in 1858, his widow Mary Danforth married Tarrant's partner James Em. Hawkins. More info available.

Thanks so much for the info on the above. It has been applied. I also checked and found her death certificate and added her birth month and year as well.

4th great grand daughter
Washington Spivey
I am interested in any history on one Anna "Annie" Spivey, who was married to Jim/James Spivey. Anna "Annie" was born in 1876 and died in 1955 and is buried in Simmons Cemetery, which is just above Black's cemetery. If you are related or know of her or any of her family I would be happy to hear from you. I believe Annie had a daughter by the name of Ruth if my memory is correct and Annie lived on Betty St. back then while she was alive, now it is called St. Helena St. You can contact me at or through Find A Grave.

Thank You

RE: Lincoln Cemetery
I just finished adding another 740+ names to the Lincoln Cemetery. About 1/2 way through attaching the tombstone photos. Will get back on the project after Christmas is over. Enjoy.
Never realized how BIG that sucker is.....

RE: Why We Care...
I'd read the stories about that one not long ago. It's entirely heartbreaking.

I ran across a DC the other week for someone buried in a cemetery that may have suffered a similar fate:

Dropping by let you know that I enjoy seeing your memorials as I roam around the site. You do good work and it is good to see names added to the various "forgotten" cemeteries in Texas. You do an honor to these people. Keep up the good work! :)

Y'all make me happy all the time especially when I find chunks of gold from the things that each of you do. I believe this is my great Uncle, He had a sister named Rosetta Pointer who married Martin Conley or Conneley. Rosetta is my grandmother on my father Clarence Conley side. Clarence was born Oct 18, 1918 in Texas. Anyway I can be contacted at My father Clarence was a deaf negro black man who died in Los Angeles around August of 1957.
