Descendants of George Hackworth

Notes for A
UGUSTINE AUSTIN HACKWORTH:
Augustine was one of five brothers who fought together in the American Revolution and are honored by a monument in Bedford County, VA according to Col. David Hackworth. He applied for a pension as a Revolutionary veteran at the age of 86. Here is the abstract from DAR records, obtained by Burney Parker from Louise Birchfield
AUSTIN HACKWORTH R4410, VA Line, applied 21 November 1832, Marion Co., TN, aged 86. He lived in Bedford Co., VA at enlistment and later moved to Greene Co. (now in TN) NC and also enlisted there. After his service, he moved to Botetourt Co., VA for six years. He then returned to Greene Co., NC (now TN) for a few months, then to Buncomb Co., NC for one year, then returned to Greene Co. NC (TN) one year, then to Knox Co. (now Anderson Co.) TN for 33 years, then to Marion Co. TN. Soldier was born in 1746 in Caroline Co., VA. A son, Nickademus Hackworth, made affidavit 24 October 1852 in Morgan Co., AL, aged 73, and stated soldier died about 1846 or 1847 leaving 4 children: Austin, Samuel, Ruth, and Nickademus all over age 21.
So far we have not ascertained the names of Augustine Austin's parents, but here are tree diagrams of his siblings and his children. Please bear in mind that much research remains to be done on this line. Two of the brothers' names are very conjectural, and for that matter, we still don't have any proof that William Wilburn Hackworth is Nickademus' son, only strong circumstantial evidence. For instance, W.W.'s brother, Victor Austin Hackworth, had a son named Nick (Nickademus?) who also lived in Washington County, TX. So we feel reasonably confident that this is our family.

Five other Hackworths from Bedford County who were probably Thomas' brothers
saw some form of service during the Revolutionary period. Augustine (1746-1847), served with his brother William in Lord
Dunmore's War, and served in 1789 in an expedition against the Cherokees and fought them in a battle at Lookout Mountain.
