Thank you so much. I knew some of that because I have read Stephen Hawkins’ writings. I did not know, however, that 6 Hawkins brothers emigrated. I was only aware of Lawrence and Martin. Martin settled in MN but eventually returned to Ireland leaving his family behind in MN.
Are you aware of whether there are still Hawkins family in or around the area where they lived? Do you have any knowledge of who the other brothers may be? Have you any idea what port of entry Lawrence may have come through?
