Letter from State Department of Archives and History, Montgomery, Alabama:

Mrs. Virginia E. Cook

314 S.E. "K" Street

Grant's Pass, Oregon

....T.A.J. Hawkins was a pensioner from Barbour County, Alabama, in1899. He stated he serve d as a private in Co. K, 39th Alabama Infantry, enlisted 7 April 1862, at Eufaula, and was discharged 19 May 1865. He further stated that he was wounded at Chickamauga, Atlanta and Missionary Ridge. He gave his age as 70 years. The name of his parents is not shown, nor is any other data given.

 

Archives to Virginia E. Cook, 21 March 1963:

Dear Mrs. Cook;

With reference to your letter of March 14, 1863, requesting information concerning the Confederate military service of Thomas Andrew Jackson Hawkins enlisted in that organization on that  ate with the grade of Private. He was 31 years of age.

A muster in roll of Company K, 39th Alabama Infantry Regiment, C.S.A., dated May 154, 1862, shows that Thomas A. J. Hawkins enlisted in that organization on that date with the grade of Private. He had evidently transferred from one organization to another, which was not at all unusual.

During the Census of Confederate Veterans in 1907, Thomas A. J. Hawkins certified to the Tax Assessor of Henry County that he had served in Company K, 16th Alabama Infantry Regiment, C.S.A ., and also, in Company K, 39th Alabama Infantry Regiment, C.S.A. His address in 1907 was Headland, Henry County, Alabama.

Thomas Andrew Jackson Hawkins drew a pension for his service in the Confederate Army. He firs t applied for the pension in 1899, and, at that time, he was living at Elamville, Barbour County, Alabama. His pension application certifies that he was wounded three times while iservice--at Chicamauga, Atlanta, and at Missionary Ridge, Tennessee. After his death on July 6, 1909 , his widow, Mrs. Margaret Winford Hawkins, drew a Confederate widow's pension. She certified that she and Mr. Hawkins were married in Barbour County in October 1868. She gave the name o f her father as Lewis N. Adams.

The Confederate military service of Thomas A. J. Hawkins, as set out, has been verified by the Office of the U.S. Adjutant General in Washington, D.C.

Brewer's History of Alabama contains a sketch of each Alabama regiment that participated in th e War between the States and we also have folders with information about the different regiments. We are not sufficiently staffed, however, to type up all this data. We would be glad t o make it available to you if you could visit this department.

Name of his Colonel: Clayton and Michell

Name of his Captain: Copeland and Flewellen

Written by Winston Adams' father:

T.A.J. Hawkins

Thomas A. J. Hawkins was born August 2, 1829 and died July 5, 1909. He was the son of Mr. an d Mrs. Williams and Epsey Hawkins and was born in Valington, Alabama, where the town of Luverne now stands. At the age of12 he moved with his parents to Log Town (now Eufaula) where he lived until 1857 when he moved to Kansas only living there four years when he moved back to Eufaula, Alabama where he lived until 1862 when he enlisted in the army against the North, joining Co. K 39th Alabama Regiment of the Eufaula Rifles. At the age of 19, he joined the Methodist church at Epworth near Eufaula, Ala. and since that time he has ever been loyal to his Church . It may well be said of him that he was a man that went about doing good wherever he had an opportunity, not only waiting opportunities to come his way, but he sought them. He had a burning desire to see men saved and to help them find the way to salvation and to encourage them after they had found it. He was also a great Sunday School man and in  his department of the Church work he had great success. The writer knows of one Sunday School where he was Superintendent out of which came seven preachers and many other cases similar to this one.

As stated above, he enlisted in the Army against the North to help in the lost cause and to stand for what he verily thought to be the right. In this as in all things else, he was always found at this post of duty, ready to fight and die if needs be for his grand old country. H e was faithful until the surrender, receiving only a slight wound in the hand.

Mr. Hawkins was married twice, first to Miss Susan Hardy in 1852 and to them six children were born. She died early in the Spring of 1868. The second time he was married to Miss Margaret Adams in 1868, to them seven children were born. Of this number nine are still living, also his second wife.

In December, 1904, this good man moved to Midland City where he lived and worked for three years. Afterwards moving to Headland where he died with acute indigestion after only a few minutes illness. The end came as a shock to all the family, for only a few minutes before his death , he sat on his front porch and read his paper.

On Tuesday P.M., a number of his relatives and friends followed him to his last resting place where he was interred amidst tears and sorrow. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. J.A . Peterson of Dothan in the absence of his Pastor, Rev. J. H. Williams. To the bereaved relatives and friends we would say--look to the God he served for comfort and be assured that you can find him in Heaven shouting the praise of God and the Land.
