Surprised no one has answered your e-mails on this family. Howell is one of my Great Grandfathers and it appears that you have as much information as I have. I descend from his son Howell Pinkney James Hathcock.There are a plethora of researchers out there on this family. If you were to put his name in the Google search engine you can come up with a lot of information on him.I would also encourage you to use the Coffee County Genealogy website as well. I do have some Hathcock photos and there are others that have researched this family that have the same photos as well.Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
