Hanks Place LibraryThis page is no longer being updated. For most of the below and much more, see the Hanksplace Wiki.
For now, I'm just going to get these transfered over to the new site, and just list them here. I need to work out a better organizational structure. In all of my "spare time" (ha ha), I'll be getting this all into a database, or something like that.
The Hanks Name
A document contributed by Sherry Smith that offers one possibility for the origins of the name 'Hanks'.
Hanks Coat of Arms Historiography
A document contributed by Sherry Smith. I need to dig up the original email this document came with, and see if there was an image of the coat of arms attached.
Some info about Benjamin Hanks (1665-1755)
Taken from The Ebenezer Hanks Story by Kerry William Bate. This book (which has a lot more good info on Hanks and other ancestry) is available from the LDS family history library, in both book form, and on microfilm, FHL film number 1033891, item #3.
Last Will & Testament of Benjamin Hanks (1788-1843)
Contributed by Sherry Smith.
Memorial of the Walkers of the Old Plymouth Colony"
Eph Hanks has Walkers in his genealogy, and some of those lines are traced in this book. It's available from the LDS family history library, FHL film number 1036345. I started transcribing it here a while back, but didn't get very far. I'd need to make copies from the microfilm, and then OCR it. Lots of work still left to go on this project. I did have an email contact a while back who had transcribed some of the text. I'll need to get in contact again.
Not related to Hanks research, but here for lack of a better place to put it.
The Tempered Wind
A biography of Thisbe Read, wife of Ephraim Hanks. Written by her son Sidney A. Hanks.
