James Preston Hawkins
This unidentified photo has been in the "unknown" collection of old family photos. A year or so ago, strictly by deduction, Shannon and I came to the conclusion that it "might" be James Preston Hawins, our g-g-g-grandfather, (Roscoe Blood, Sarah Batty Hawkins Blood, James Preston Hawkins). Yesterday, Steven Lukins, also a direct line of J.P. Hawkins, forwarded the same picture with the following: "The picture was labeled by Myrtle as James Preston Hawkins her grandfather. " Now we have positive identification. Welcome, James Preston Hawkins to the family gallery.
