Re: HAWKINS TN ORRICKS
My great grandmother Austin was Amanda Orick (that's the way they spelled it) She was the daughter and 11th of 14 children of James M. and Catherine Orick. My great grandparents were married near Galbraith Springs and lived near Spruce Pine, just over the mountain from Clouds Creek in Rogersville.I've got the list in Catherine Orick's handwriting of their names and dates of birth and all 14 children they had.Amanda had a brother named Madison that went by Matt. Matt had a son Jess, twins Lonnie and Hugh and a daughter Myrtle. If any of this rings a bell with you please write me! I'd love to swap genealogy with you.I was told by my mother the Oricks came out of North Carolina and that they are Irish.
