Linda Richardson Moore and Myrna Richardson Coffman, Please contact me in regards to this Elmyra Hawkins. I was searching for Dennis Riley Hawkins and came up here. I believe you just helped me solve a mystery in the names you have mentioned. Sometimes the women are so difficult to trace. I have A Dennis Riley Hawkins b. 1805, who had a daughter Elmyra/Elvira Hawkins (both ways). Now in researching your Elmira Hawkins who married Richardson and named a son Riley Dennis Richardson, I believe she is most likely a sister to my Dennis Riley Hawkins. She fits into the Female #1 time slot according to the census record in 1820, that didn't name other than the head of household. She was next to her brother Dennis Riley Hawkins in sibling order and probably named her son Riley Dennis after her brother. There were others that used that name again also. The whole immigration route your people followed were the same as this Hawkins clan and they ended up in the same counties in AR. So if you are interested I can tell you who I believe this Elmyra Hawkins of yours parents were.
