According to the following query in the "Maryland Historical Magazine, Spring 1945" claims that Joseph Hawkins married Sarah Marlin, daughter of Richard Marlin.
Sevier-Hawkins — John Sevier (1745-1815), 1st Gov. of Tenn., married 1st in Frederick Co., Va., 1760-1, Sarah Hawkins, daughter of Joseph and Sarah (Marlin) Hawkins. They had 10 children: Joseph b. 1762; James b. 25 Oct. 1764; John, Jr., b. 20 Jan. 1766; Elizabeth b. 1768, m. Maj. Wm. Clarke; Sarah b. July 1770, m. Judge Benj. Brown; Maryan b. 1771-2, m. 1st Samuel Mays; 2nd Joshua Garland; Valentine b. 1773; Richard b. 1775 — no issue; Rebecca b. 1778, m. John Waddell; Nancy b. spring of 1780, m. Walter King.
Information is wanted concerning the descendants of Gov. John and Sarah (Hawkins) Sevier.
Hawkins-Marlin (Marley, Merley, Merlin, etc.) — Joseph Hawkins appeared in Frederick County, Va., about 1744, as did his father-in-law, Richard Marlin.
Information is wanted concerning their place of residence before they arrived in Frederick Co., Va. Also the names of their parents, and maiden name and parentage of Richard Marlin's wife.

Note: there appears to be some support of this statement in the Frederick County Deed Books, as Richard Marlin did give Joseph Hawkins, Sarah's husband "265 acres of land, bordering on the north side of Mill Creek just west of the town limits of the Town of Mt.Jackson, that was given to Joseph Hawkins by deed of gift from Richard Marlin", which is listed in Frederick County, Virginia, Deed Book 13, page 171, dated 21 Oct 1769.

On the flip side of this assertion is based upon naming patterns, Joseph and Sarah Hawkins apparently did NOT name one of their sons Richard, but DID name an older son Joseph, which appears to support Sarah as a daughter of Joseph Jones. Additional research may be needed, although this and other sources appear to lean towards Sarah being the daughter of Joseph Jones and not Richard Marlin.

Notes on Sarah Jones

The last record found for Sarah Hawkins, widow of Joseph Hawkins (d. 28 September 1770), is on 13 Jan 1795, (D.B. I, p. 536) at which date she signed a deed selling 100 acres of the 210 acres on which she was living and in which she had a dower interest. Source:


    Sarah Jones (Generation 7), daughter of Joseph and Patience Beale(s) Jones, was almost certainly born in East Nottingham, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, around, say, 1720.On June 1, 1739 in Baltimore Co. she married James McDaniel, and on August 20 following, their daughter Ann McDaniel was born (Register of St. George's Protestant Episcopal Church, p. 104 - Maryland Hall of Records) (Barnes 1989, 137).McDaniel seems to have died with in the next few years, for on May 19, 1744, Sarah McDaniel
    remarried at St. John's Portestant Episcopal Church, St. Paul's Parish, to Joseph Hawkins. The couple then settled in Frederick Co., Virginia, where Joseph was no doubt already well established as a Shenandoah Valley farmer.
