Although a considerable amount of my own original research has gone into this project, I also must acknowledge the help, hints, clues and encouragement that I have received from many people. Without their influence and help, this project would never have been brought to its present state. Some of those on whom I have leaned are:

Many of William Wilmot Hawkins' descendants came from her work.

I would also like to thank the countless others whose hints I may have forgotten which nevertheless may have lead to some major find. As I've collected and discovered more and more information, I've found that I've failed to include the names of contributers in the credits more often. Please forgive my oversight if I failed to note your contribution. And feel free to contact me and remind me if I've failed to mention your contribution so I can add it to the list above.
