    In a later Special Court Proceeding, October 1888, the heirs of THOMAS BLACKNALL were listed as:

HAWKINS, THOMAS H. HAWKINS, JAS. A. HAWKINS, MINNIE A. FOGG (a minor, whose guardian was WOODLEY HAWKINS). Land that was given to the widow, PATSY BLACKNALL, was later to be divided between grandson, TOM DUNCE and his mother (BLACKNALL's daughter) , HARRIET DUNCE, and son GABRIEL BLACKNALL and the other 2 daughters REBECCA MAYO & PEGGY HAWKINS (wife of WOODLEY HAWKINS). But PATSY BLACKNALL & PEGGY HAWKINS were dead, and M. T. HAWKINS, THOS. H. HAWKINS, & JAS. A. HAWKINS had no children, while MINNIE A. FOGG, was the the only child of a deceased daughter; REBECCA MAYO was still living along with her MAYO children listed above. The land was then divided between the living heirs, including the children of PEGGY HAWKINS.
