 Clarke - Sevier notes:
 See links to Sevier page. Sevier Family History by
 Cora Sevier and Nancy S Madden lists Sarah Hawkins' 
 father as Joseph Hawkins, son of John Hawkins b. 1680
 in England, d. prior to Oct 7 1740,  and married to
 Sarah Marlin, settled about 1705 St. Anne's Parish 
 Essex Co. There is a very good Hawkins 
 genealogy on the Internet: which lists among Joseph Hawkins children, Sarah Hawkins. 
 The Hawkins family says that particular
 Joseph Hawkins was married to Jane Nicholas but lists among their
 children Sarah Hawkins.  Recent
 information suggests that either Joseph Hawkins was married
 twice, or there was some confusion in the lineage 
 between generations of the distinguished Hawkins family, which descends from Sir John Hawkins. Research is still being done
 on this line of the family.
