  More Information:

Residence: Hopkins County, Kentucky. Albert appears to have been born and raised in Hopkins County, Kentucky. His parents were married in Livingston County in 1833 but were listed in the Hopkins County census in 1840 when Albert would have been about 2 years old. The family, including Albert, were also listed in Hopkins County in 1850.

1840 United States Federal Census, Huston Hankins household, Hopkins County, Kentucky 1892: Albert appears to be included in the composition of his father's household.

1850 United States Federal Census, Houston Hankins household, Hopkins County, Kentucky 1890: Albert was living with his parents, 5 sisters and 2 brothers. He was listed as Albert Hankins (age 12).

1860 United States Federal Census, Albert Hankins household, Hopkins County, Kentucky 1808: Albert, Janie and their sons, John & Lee were living in Madisonville. Albert was listed as a day laborer, age 22, born in Kentucky. They were listed next to Albert's parents.

Civil War, Confederate Military Service, 1861 1862: Albert enlisted in the 8th Kentucky Infantry on 18 Oct 1861 in Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky for a period of 3 years. The records of the Adjutant General of the State of Kentucky for Confederate Kentucky Volunteers, lists Albert as a 4th sergeant with Company F of the 8th Regiment Infantry. As of 1 Aug 1862 his muster roll record shows he was a 4th sergeant with Company I and was "absent at home in Kentucky without leave".

It is unclear exactly what happened to Albert. According to one of his granddaughters, Albert was wounded in the hand in a battle in Hopkinsville, Ky in 1865 so he must have returned to his unit at some point. That same grandaughter told that Albert was found with a friend in a barn in the company of deserters, was accused of desertion and shot. One of Albert's great granddaughters also remembered hearing that Albert "got into some trouble and was shot".

Religion: Elvy Hankins is listed as becoming a member of Salem Baptist Church in 1863. This is most likely Albert as his father, Houston, had joined this church in 1847 and his brother, Linn B. also joined in 1863 along with a Martha Hankins who was likely Albert's sister. 1894

Notes: Albert was no longer living with his wife and children by 1870. Janie was head of the household in that census and was living with their children next door to her father, John E. Goodloe. Based on that, it is assumed that Albert died before 1870.
