HANKS Page 1


Thanks to the research of others, we have quite a bit of information on this line. Some say there is a connection between this Hanks line and Nancy Hanks Lincoln. Others say this is not so. I have not had the time at present to dig deeper into this line. Leah Hanks (our line) married Timothy Hixson, who apparently migrated (with his father) from New Jersey to Loudon County, Virginia where they lived for a while and at this time, Timothy met and married Leah. The family later moved to Bedford County, Pennsylvania.
