Two? That’s what the consensus seemed to be among family members.
Dick Hankins married Bettie Smith on 1 March 1905 in Hopkins County, Kentucky. Bettie and their second child both died in 1909.
Later he married Edith Rhea Jackson from Springfield, Tennessee. It appeared they were married before 16 May 1911 because this was published in The Earlington Bee (a Hopkins County newspaper) that day.
“Mrs. Dick Hankins of Nashville, is visiting friends here.”
Except they didn’t get married until more than a year later.
Hopkins County marriage records are back on my to do list.
