All information on her is from records, the only information on her from family is that she was a white woman.

1930 census:
Name Ruth Hawkins
Age 20
Sex Female
Race Negro
Birthplace Virginia
Father's Birthplace Virginia
Mother's Birthplace Virginia
Lived in Jamaica, NY on Long Island
Husband's Name Dennis Hawkins (a light skin African American Male)

Death Certificate:
Name Ruth Hawkins
Age 25
Sex Female
Race Negro
Birthplace US
Died March 1936 in Jamaica, NY on Long Island
Father's Name James Jefferson
Father's Birthplace U.S.
Mother's Name Anna Roxianna
Mother's Birthplace U.S.
Lived in Jamaica, NY on Long Island
Informant/Husband Dennis Hawkins

My Grandmother's Social Security Application gives her first name as Mada, don't know if it's a short form of a name.

Again, no other info is known of her besides what is listed, there are no living family members that could tell me much about her, there's only stories about my Great Grandfather that were passed down to them. Hoping to find someone who recognize the name and some information.

Thanks.

Could this be her in the 1920 census? She's designated as Mulatto.

Harry Jefferson, 66
Nannie Jefferson, 53
George E Jefferson, 14
Madaline Jefferson, 11

Hello LM54,

Thanks, I do have this family documented and unfortunately for me found Madaline still living with her grandmother Nannie in 1930.

Not the one

Thanks anyway
