I am writing in reference to some very old Genforum queries listing you as doing research on the Hawk family and stating that a Phoebe Hawk, daughter of Jerry Hawk, supposedly married a Dingler in Georgia.
There is some speculation that she might be the same person as Phoebe "Hayes" b. bet 1807-1815, who married William Dingler in Pike Co. GA on 20 May 1830.
If you have any info on a possible connection I would be extremely grateful, and will gladly share what info I have.
William Dingler and Phoebe "Hayes" were my wife's great, great grandparents. Their daughter, Lucinda, married William David Rinehardt, in Monroe Co. AR in 1868. William was from NC and the family moved back to that state in the early 1870's.
William Dingler and his wife, Phoebe, moved from GA to Alabama sometime between 1835 and 1837. They had a child, Thomas, born in Butts Co. GA in 1832 and then had two other children, Henry (b. 1833) & John (b. 1835), pob GA. Their daughter, Mary, was born in Alabama in 1837. The family was listed in the 1850 census in Randolph Co. AL. In this census, Lucinda, was actually listed as Phebe, age 1, so her complete name could have been Lucinda Phebe, however, she was always known as Lucinda to her children and grandchildren.
Sometime before 1867, all, or part of the family moved to Arkansas. Phoebe Dingler was listed in the 1880 census as age 73, living with her daughter, Mary, and son-in-law, Michael Scott, in Lee Co. AR. The census stated that Phoebe's parents were born in Virginia.
There has been a tradition in my wife's family that Lucinda Dingler Rinehardt, Phoebe's daughter, was part Indian but I have not been able to find any proof of this. There are photos of Lucinda taken in the 1920's that show her with definite Indian facial features, and she was the person who told her grand-daughters of her Indian heritage, but no further details are known.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
