Surnames: HANKS, HARPER, LINCOLN
Hello,
I am a relative of Thomas Hanks, b. ca. 1600, spouse Elizabeth. You have on your list that Thomas had a son William. He also had a son named Robert Hanks, b. 1661, died ?, spouse Margaret.

Through many generations down there is a Benjamin A. Hanks, b. 1832, d. 1864 in Andersonville Prison, N.C. He was in the Civil War. Benjamin A. Hanks was my gg grandfather.

Another person I have communicated with tells me that William Hanks b. ca. 1600 had a son, Luke b. ca. 1685 married to Elizabeth and they had a son Abraham Hanks, b. aft 1743, d. abt. 1790 married Sarah Harper who had numerous children including Nancy Hanks, b. 1784, d. 1818.

This Nancy Hanks is supposed to be the one married to Thomas Lincoln who had Abraham Lincoln--the President.
Do you know anything along these lines?

Please let me know.

Thanks

Laurie
