Solomon's daddy was Joseph K Hankinson, it is on an 1850 census, along with his wife Catherine. After scouring the records, Joseph was born in New Jersey, Catherine was Catherine Woolfe, born in PA. There is another couple, born 30 years later, with the same names and their stones are on FindaGrave. Those aren't OUR Joseph and Catherine. There are two wedding dates on OUR Joseph and Catherine, one August 11, the other October 11, of the same year, but the same guy married them. Weird. As for Solomon, his first was Caroline Wynkoop. There is a reference in a history book that an India Mae Hankinson, daughter of Solomon and Caroline Wynkoop, married a Buterbaugh. I also found anniversary notices in two papers that were reprints of Solomon J Hankinson marrying Lavina Newbrant. Otto John is my g-granddaddy, Solomon's name is in his obituary along with Lavina Wynkoop. The family also wrote Lavina Wynkoop on Otto John's funeral guest registry. Caroline was the mother of all of the children-the dates fit the censuses. Lavina would have married Solomon when Otto John was six, thus the little boy calling him Mamma and, because Caroline just disappears off the radar along with two children, I wonder if it was a case of "we don't talk about it" for whatever reason. Here's a kicker, though, and I can't find anything else about it anywhere, on Otto John's wedding license papers, his parents are listed as Solomon and Sarah. Sarah??? I hit a wall after that. I can find no reference to Solomon ever marrying a Sarah and the family, including my father, remembers Lavina always being called Lavina. PS. People keep putting Joseph Hankinson (who was born the same month and year as OUR Joseph), the Captain, with Solomon. THAT Joseph died in 1825, ten years before Solomon was born. A dead guy can't produce children...well, not in those days. I do believe that OUR Joseph was a Jr., it says so on the wedding registry, and his daddy was also a Joseph. The OTHER Joseph Hankinson's daddy was Kenneth, Kenneth's daddy was Thomas. Thomas was married twice, once to Helena, Kenneth's daddy, and the second time to Hannah, who had a boy named Joseph. I believe HE is OUR Joseph's daddy, but I can't connect the two Josephs, Sr & Jr. Miss Miller, if you can give me information, I believe I have a picture of a Miller among my grandparent's things that you might want.
