I was born Danny Edwin Lovett on January 14 , 1961 in Pekin , Il. mother Mary S. Lovett , father James D. Lovett and was adopted in Christian Co. (Taylorville), Il. November 14 , 1961 to Kenneth E. and Norma K. Reincke. At the time of the adoption notice Nov. 2 , 1961 Mary's address was listed as 437 broadway st. in Pekin Il. and the whereabouts of James was not known at that time. I did find out that Mary's father arranged or at least played a part in the adoption. I was told Mary had at least one sister younger than her that is the only sibling that I know of she had. I had also been told that Mary had at least one other child a little later. I was told that Mary's father lived in Oweneco, Il. behind or across from the gas station. I think he was killed in a car accident in the mid to late 60's. I do not have a first or last name for Mary's parents so I do not Know her maiden name nor I know who James's parents were or where they lived. I know I do not have much to go on but if anyone out there knows anything about Mary or James Lovett even if it's just a maybe please let me know in a follow up post or you can even Email me direct if you wish. Thank You Ken Reincke (Danny E. Lovett)
I'm sorry to say that we have very little information on the Hawkins family. Do know that Martha Hawkins was the daughter of John and Mary (Hicks) Hawkins. Have no other names of siblings or descendents.
I did find where Horace Lovett, son of Thomas and Martha Lovett still lived in East Otto, Cattaraugus County, NY in 1910. As Horace was the eldest son, he could have still been living on the original Lovett farm. In checking neighbors on the Census, there was an Edson Hawkins as a close neighbor. He could have been a descendent of Johns and also stayed on his father's land.
Doubt this will help, but wish you luck in your search. Nancy
