Chandler; conditional line between Harmon Hawkins and John Riddle. Witnesses: John Easley and Randolph Riddle. Signed: Benjamin Hawkins, Senr., Benjamin Hawkins, Junr.

      p. 217. Pages 132-133: I, Nicals Perkins of Stokes (?) Co., NC for $600 sold to John Easley of Pendleton Co., 600 acres on Rice's creek of 12 Mile River, surveyed by David Hopkins, D.S., 11 Jun. 1784 for Patrick Bardon (Rardon). Date: 8 Oct. 1799. Signed: N. Perkins. Wit: James Trehern (?), Harmon Hawkins, H. D. L. J. Stone . . . "Be it remembered that one Kirks(?) has a claim of a tract of 40 acres in one corner of within deed and I, John Easley, do hereby relinquish all claim to the sd. Keeks (?)". Date: 13 Oct. 1799. Wit: Harmon Hawkins, Randolph Riddle. Harmon Hawkins made oath to Robert Bowen, J. P., 12 Nov. 1799. Rec: 1 Jan. 1800.

      Franklin County, Tennessee, 1812 tax list, page 20:
      Benjamin Easley
      (four names intervening)
      War Easley
      John Easley
      Randolph Riddle
      (one name intervening)
      Harmon Riddle
      Benjamin Riddle is on page 18; John Riddle and again Harmon Riddle appear on page 10)

      Obviously, this is no accident.
      Randolph Riddle is said to be the husband of Jemima Hawkins. John Easley (my ancestor) was said by my grandmother's uncle (John's great-great grandson) to have been married to a Hawkins- it appears her name was Winifred. I believe that John and Randolph were probably brothers-in-law.
      Any information would be appreciated. [11, 12]
