Directly across the Rappahanock river from Sabine Hall (Sabine is in Richmond County) is a creek that has two forks. And between the two forks is the word Hawkins Creek? To locate it without Sabine Hall, go to the word Essex in large letters with Dangerfield just under it. Go down river to the very next creek to find the Hawkins Creek designation.
Has anyone come across a reference to Hawkins Creek? Am I reading this correctly?
I found a clearer view by using the American Memory Site
It seems that it is Hoskins Creek....anyone know anything about this area? Named in a land record of some sort in Essex? Or old Rappahanock County in an earlier time?
