The History and Genealogy of the Hawkins family: 

For we are the same our fathers have been, 

We see the same sights our fathers have seen, 

We drink of the same stream and view the same scene 

And run tiie same course our fathers have run. 

— William Knox. 

To the dec«'ndants of the Hawkins family' for whose ])leasure and 
encouragenu'iits the historians have siueei'ely woi'ked this b()t)k is 
especially dedicated. Those who read it may wondi-r how it ever 
came to be written. 

In 1885 a reunion was held at the home of William Hawkins, 
N(;wton l*'alls, Ohio. This meeting was so much enjoyed, and souk; 
wished to know more of foi-mer relationship that it was decided to 
meet annually, and lias been held foi" \2 years. The lirst president 
was John Jlawkins of New Lisbon, Ohio, and seiM'etary was Dr. 
,1. M. Carter of New Waterford, Ohio. At first it was held at the 
homes, but soon became so large that it was decided to hold it in 
some i)ark or giove. 

These reunions did much toward interesting the members to 
know nuii-e about tlieii- ancestoi's in past histoi-y. The writers of 
this book claim no spei-ial, iitness for this work, c.\cei)t a fair share 
of patience and persevereiice lliat has uphi'ld them for years of 
reseai' through family records. 

This volume is incomplete, had it been undertaken many years 
ago it might have becji more nearly correct. We want to thank 
the many who ch<!ci-fully answei'cd all lettei-s of iiupiiry and all 
who assisted in any way. 

Tlierefor'c lei lis run with patience the race set before us, that 
when our work is (inislied it may be said that the world was made 
happier and better for this family having lived in it.

William Hawkins, (as assijiiiee of Ixohert McKain. who must 
thei-efore have hei-n an earliei- setth'r lierei, i-eceived a Vii'ginia 
certiticate for four hundred acres of land on the Dutch Koi'k of 
P.utralo. The certiticate ))ears date of Feb. 17, 17S0, and it was 
surveyed to Hawkins, in the .Iid\- next followiiij^. On this tract 
William Hawkins, hnill his cahin home, on the south si(h' of tlu' 
route of the latci- National I'oad, at oi' ncai' the foot of the hill which 
his sint'o been known as Hawkins' Hill. The land on which the 
Hawkins home stood is oi- was recently owned by -lohn Connor. Tlie 
old Hawkins cabin was deuu)lislied, and the lo<:s from it were used 
to build a stable on the opposite side of the National road. Will- 
iam Hawkins did not lon^' occupy and enjoy the farm obtained on 
the X'ir^inia certiticate as abo\c mentioned. In Septembei', 17S1, 
the Indians made an incursion, attacking- the house of .lonathan 
Link, on Middle Wheelin<|- Creek, and taking' jirisoncrs the inmates 
(except Jacob Fishei' and l^'i'aid; llu|)|), ^vhom they killed) pro- 
C(eded to the Hawkins cabin, where they I'aptui'cd Miss Fli/abetli 
Hawkins, dan^htei' of William Hawkins, who had himself already 
been taken ])risoner by the same ])arty at the house of Persley 
Peak (oi- Peek-) on the Didcli h'ork. iM rs. Hawkins, the wife of 
William and nu)llicr of lOli/abeth, avoided capture by hidinjj: (with 
an infant in her ai'msi in the bushy top of a fallen tree near their 
cabin. ()n their journey west the Indians bai'barously nnirdered 
Link and William Hawkins. His dauj^hler lOli/abeth became the 
wife of a Shawauese chief, and though she aftei'wards revisited tlie 
setlh'meuts, and coidd ha\'e renmiued had she so elected, chose to 
return to live amouji' the savages, and did so. Jacob Miller, wlio 
was captured with Link and William Hawkins, nuide his escape; 
from the Indians, and returned to his friends on the l)ul(;li l<V)rk 
of Uiillalo.

Thomas Hawkins was an EM<»-lislnnan hy birth, who emif?rated 
from his native hind to Anu'rica at a very early (hite. His first 
setth^meiit was maiU' in tlie State of Mai-yhind, l)ut he soon re- 
moved from tiiere to a point near BeallsviUe, loeatin<>' upon the 
property now oeeupied l)y ^Irs. ftarali Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins 
married a daughter of James ('rawford, who owned and operated 
the ferry at the moutli of Fish Pot R\in. They liad a fanuly of 
eijrht children. Absalom Hawkins was the oldest son. He owned 
a number of slaves, and from IHO'i to 1820, or later, kept a tavern 
upon the propei'ty now owned by Edward Tayhn*. He owiu'd the 
Stephen Hill and the (Jen. Crooks farm, and also owned six or 
seven hnndi'ed acres «)f land in West Bethlehem township, on the 
National road l)etween llillsboi-ou<:h and l>eallsviiie. The road 
I'uiis throujih the farm he then possessed. Alisaloni Hawkins dit'd 
on the old Pusey fai-m, in this township. 

Richard Hawkins, the second son of Thomas Hawkins, settled on 
that part of his father's tract that was in the pos.session of Col. 
Alexander Hawkins. In 181:5 he purciiased four hundred and 
fifteen acres of land of Tiioinas Hill, whicii was located in Green 
County, upon which he lived the I'emaiiuler of his da\'s. That 
pi'operty was owned by his sons, William and -lohn Hawkins. 
Another of his sons, Janu\s (•. Hawkins, has a farm of three hun- 
dred and forty-live acres, called "Syeamore (irove. " It is situated 
in East Bethlehem township, on Ten-Mile Creek, about two and 
one half miles fi'om tin; river and was first owned by William 
Montjj-omery, who warranted it. Mr. Mont<i:ouu'ry became invt)lved 
and sold the place to Evan McCnlIou<;h, of Clreen County, of whom 
Mr. Hawkins obtained it. niakinjr the |)nrchase in the year 1833. 
'i'here was a mill built upon the run, which was first optu'ated by 
Mr. Montj,'oniery, and also by each successive owner of the prop- 
erty, Mi-. Hawkins contiuned it until 1875. In 1843, at the time he 
boujrlit it, he put in three cardinji; nuieliines, a picker, and a fullin{? 
mill, and these controlled a larjre custom for twelve miles in each 
direction. In 1870 the eardin»r and fnllin<>- niill was discontinued, 
the machinery bein<; sold to Mor<i:an Wise, and taken by him to 
Wa}iu'sburgj, to use in the establishment known as the Hook Mill. 
A saw mill had been i)ut in operation where the fullin<i' mill was 
I'un, a ncM' dam havini,' been built to supply the water-power . Of 
the three dams that have been l)uilt at this place, two have been the 
work of Mv. Hawkins. Besides the other investments ami business 
interests of the Hawkins family, they have nearly all beeir ex- 
tensively enp:a<;ed in wool jrrowinjr and sheep raisinji'. 

William Hawkins was the thii'd son of Thomas Hawkins, the 
early settler, ilf livid and died upon a farm adjoinin<i- that of his 
father, and Mr. Patterson, a grandson of his owned and occu- 
pies the pi'opert}'. 


Thomas Hawkins. Jr., was the youiijjcst son of Thomas Hawkins, 
Sr. He owned and lived upon a part of tlie lioiiitstead I'or a wliih-, 
l)ut in IHilO, removed to Stark County, Ohio, whci'e he ri'sidcd tlie 
rest of his life. 

The above is copied from Pages, 766. 

S. R. Hawkins, late eommissioner of Washington County, was 
horn and reared in Sonu'rset township, upon the larni wiure lie 
now resides. His grandfatlier, William Hawkins, one of tlic most 
prosperous of Washington county's early-day farmers, married 
Nancy ^losier. They had hut one son who grew to numliood, John 
Hawkins, father of S. R. Hawkins. John was twice married tirst to 
Sarali A. Young, hy whom lie had thi'ee childi'cn, William, S. R., 
and Henry, all living. After the death of his tii-st wife, Jolin 
Hawkins married >Susan Fannei", 1)\' whom he had si.x idiildrcn, 
ff)ur of whom are living. He died Api'il 17, ISSO. His second wife 
died a few years previous to that date. 

S. R. Hawkins, who is a tlirift\' farmer in the prime of life, oh- 
taiued his education in the common schools, and learned the husi- 
ness of farming with his father. When he hecame of age lie settled 
uj)on a farm not far from his present home, and which he still owns, 
and where he and liis wife, whose maiden name was Josephine 
Richardson, lived until his father's death, when they moved to the 
old homestead. They have no children. .Mi'. Hawkins is a member 
of the Methodist Church of lieallsville. In politics lie and the 
tnnnerous Hawkins family are disi iiiclively Republicans. He has 
been elected to important township olViccs by his parly, and was 
one of the Republican county coiiniiissioncrs for tliiec yi-ars, his 
term cxpii'ing with the yeai' 1SS1.

Itobert Hawkins, the subjet-t of this sketch, is but -one (»f so many 
of the name in the family tliat he can best be distinguished as the 
grandson of the original Robert Hawkins, who came to this country 
from England at the age of 20 years in 1715. Tli.' cider Robert 
s«-tth'd in the vicinity of Maltitnorc where lie died in ISOl iil tlu; 
iMpe old age of 106 years. 

He led a full and vigorous life, accumulated pi-operty and a deep 
devotion for the country which had givi-n him Iioiim' and prosperity. 



111 consequence during the war of the Revolution he gave liberally 
of his means to the government and saw his three sons, Robert Jr., 
Thonuis, and Ricliard, shoulder arms in its defense. 

Robert died at \ alh-y Forge and Thomas and Richai'd continued 
thi'ough to llie viclui-ious cud of the memoi-abli' eoiiHict. Of the two 
survivors Richard was tiu' father of the subject of this sketch and 
Thomas was the fatlier of his wife, Rutii. Robert uuirried his 
fiist cousin. 

This Robert, the grandson of the original Robert, the son of 
Richard, was born May 20, 1778, and his wife, Ruth, ten years 
later. Their tirst son. Rieliard, was born in 1806, slightly less than 
two years foUowiiig the marriage. He lived to be but three years 
of age. In all there was a family of 12 (•hildivii of whom nine 
grew to nmturity. 

Robert Hawkins, like his forbears, was a hard-working and pros- 
perous man. He was a God-fearing man, a minister of the Christian 
church. He left Ids family an honored and lionorable name as well 
Hs generous portions of this world's goods as measured in the money 
tei-ms of his day. 

He pas.sed the greater portion of his life in Washington countj', 
Penn., where he settled as a youth when his father came up from 
their early home in ^Maryland. 

He was a farmer and stock raiser by occupation, but devoted 
much time to Bible study and spiritual e()ntemi)lation making it 
natural that the ministry should become an avocation with him in 
later years. 

It is related that lie spoke with great earnestness. Well founded 
tradition is that once upon a time during his devotions like Martin 
I.utlier he encountered the Devil and as in the case of the great 
reformer of the Middle Ages his Satanic majesty was obliged to 
leave the field to his sjiiritual adversary. 

The greater jxirtion of his life was passed on the old Hawkins 
homestead near iicallsville, Washington county, Penn. Tt was there 
that he died somewhat tragically, following a second marriage, in 
Miiy 1851. His wife, Ruth, had passed away seven years earlier. 

His home always represented the best standards and traditions 
of his. time. He was always interested in seeing his family nijoy 
the comforts and conveniences of his time and tliey always lived 
in bountx'. One of his children relates that he usually had 
iiliout him a lai'ge amount of silver, ready to meet the lU'cds of his 
own or the proper deiiiiinds of tin- community. 

The Hawkins family evidently left its impress on their native 


Engrland as well as on the youn<j: Anieriea. The historie priory of 
Warwick, En^laiul, whieh is Ivuiyi: traiisphintcd to \'ir^iiiia to 1)l' 
the home of the Virginia Ilistorieal society, a massive strnctnre of 
great architectural beauty, was comph'ted in 1 ")()") by a 
Hawkins, a trusted retainer of the Duke of Northumbcrhuid. That 
Thomas Hawkins was known as "The Fisher." 

The surname and the Christian name of this Thomas, his char- 
acter and achievements, combine to make one thiidv of him as one 
oi the progenitors of tlu' Hawkins family of oUl England from 
which our own line of Kob-erts, Thomases et al, sprang. 

Tlie lineal connection is not yet proven but its assumption seems 
warranted. It was of such rugged cluu'acter that the family spi'ung 
and its mend)ers lost none of their moral and spiritual vigor when 
transplanted to. their new home in ^Vmerica.

Warwick Priory has had an engaging- history. It was formerly dedi- 
cated to St. Sepulcher, founded as a monastery by Henry de Newburg, 
first Earl of Warwick, and completed by his son, Rodger. At the time of 
the dissolution it was granted to a trusty retainer of John Dudley, Duke 
of Northumberland, Thomas Hawkins by name, popularly known as "THE 
FISHER." He pulled down the monastery and built the present mansion 
which was completed about 15G5. The north front preserves its old fea- 
tures, but the south was rebuilt about 1750 in the style then prevalent. 

This historic pile, erected in 15G5, is being taken down, stone by stone, 
loaded on ships and brought here, where it will be reconstructed along 
original lines as the Virginia House, a lepository of the Virginia Histori- 
cal Society as a keeping place of its records. The first shipload of ma- 
terials has just arrived at Norfolk. From there it will be transported 
by train to Richmond.

Tlioma.s Hawkins cami' to Oliio from Washington County, 
Pennsylvania. He took up a government claim jiear Lisbon, Oliio, 
to which he kept aclcling until he had fifteen luuuhecl acres -in 
one tract. In 1807 he bought l(i7 acres where the old oi'iginal house 

He and his wife, Catherine Hawkins (Nee .Mosii-r) came over in 
an ox-cart witii their |)ei'sonal and household goods and built a 
cabin in the woods, 'i'liey worked until late into the night buildiii'' 

: t- 


tlieir lionie. Mrs. Hawkins would build uj) a brusiiwood fire so lior 
luishaiul could st'c to ^o about bis work. 

Wbi'U they come from l*eiiiisylvauia their entire property con- 
sisted of what y:ot)ils could be brought in the ox-cart and one dollar 
and a (puirter in money. 

The}' innnediately set about clearing the land in order to plant 
crops. Grain was very plentiful then and hard to sell. At one 
time Thomas Hawkins took a load of wheat to town and tried to 
exchange it for a few tea cups. They were exi)ectin<:;: their 
visitors, relatives from Pennsylvania, and had only a few tin cups. 
The merchant told .Mr. Hawkins he had no use for the wheat "un- 
h'ss he used it to pave the sli-eet." lie refused to «i:ive tlu' cups on 
cicdit. "All riglit," said Thomas Hawkins, "We'll take turn 
about with the tins. He had the money he said, but more importaid 
places for it. 

From time to time old neiyhlors and friends came over from 
Washington Count\' ami took up land neai' the Hawkins'. However 
most of them grew discoui'aged and gave up their laiuls to go back 
home. Mv. Hawkins was a man of great stability and business 
aLility. He never grew discouraged. When the others uu)ved 
iiway leaving the land partl\' cleared, he would oltt-n buy it up. 

He engaged in the sheep raising business. From a few sheep he 
increased his flock to a great herd. He kejjt adding to his property 
until at one time he had three thousand acres, "and a slieep for 
each acre." 

Work was begun on a canal which ran through Lisbon and 
Elkton. ^Ir. Hawkins invested five thousand dollai's in this project. 
However, with building of better roads and the begining of rail- 
roads, it became evident that canal stock was going to depreciate. 
One day a speculator who was eousi<lei'ed a shrewd business nuin 
Slopped at tlie Hawkins home and asked Thonuis what he would 
take for his canal stoi-k. "What will you give'/"' he was asked. 
" i*Mve iiundi'ed dollars," was the offer. I\Ir. Hawkins j)ondei'»'d a 
little, "flust take it for that," he .said. Not long after the buyer 
stoj)ped to chat with JMr. Hawkins. "J thought when 1 bought that 
stock for five hundred dollars 1 had caught you nai)ping, " he said. 
"Jiut I lost every cent of the nu)ney." 

Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins were strong 'pillars of the (■hurch." 
They attended services at Church Hill, wliicli was of Bible Christ- 
ian denomination. A{ one time a new |)reachei' was sent to the 
Hawkins' home to stay over Satui'day night. His imme was 
Andrew Hanger. He lost his way, and did not arrive until about 
ten o'clock. He stopped at the lane (tf the Hawkins home. "Would 













it be possible to sta.y here for the night?" he called. It would be 
pretty hard to turn a man awaj' at this hour," said Thomas. 
"Come in." The next day he discovered that this was the ex- 
pected guest. 

Thomas Hawkins was always willing and ready to help anyone 
in need. He saved many a family from poverty and discourage- 
ment. Many farmers were given sheep "on the shares." The 
farmers cared for the sheep and received half the profit. ]Mr. 
Hawkins was highly respected and loved for his good works. 

Thomas was a man with no disposition to rove. He lived and died 
in the same locality where he first settled. He amassed (piite a 
fortune for those times, although he started with but a dollar and 
a quarter. A large sum of money was lost in the failure of the 
Lisbon Bank which was under the management of Thomas McCoy. 

Mr. Hawkins lost his eyesight nine years before his death at the 
age of 84 years, 3 months and 8 days. He had lost his hearing 
many years before following the explosion of a rifle in his hand. 
His death occurred June 8, 1876. 

Mr, Hawkins family consisted of four boys and two girls. Five 
children were born to his first marriage to Catherine Mosier, who 
died September 21, 18;{8, aged 47 years. One daughter was born 
to his second marriage to Deborah, who died September 4, 1875. 

Thomas Hawkins had little education but was a fine penman and 
quick thinker. He loaned a great deal of money to many people in 
need and it was said lie i*()\ild calculate inten>st in his head faster 
than most peopK' could on paper. 


In the direct ancestral line of the Hawkins famil}', William 
Hawkins, son of Thomas and Catherine Hawkins ,was born May 
4, 1812, on a farm near Lisbon, Columbiana county, Ohio. He re- 
mained with his parents for (juite a number of years, but in 1834 
he was united in nmrriage with Elize Hawkins of Beallsville, Wash- 
ington county, Penn.. and to this union three children were born; 
Catherine, .John, and I^]li/,a. Their home was established on his 
father's farm of 210 acres situat«'d one mile east of East Fairtield, 
Columbiana comity, Ohio, known as the Armstrong P^arju aifd in 
1842 received a deed for the same. About seven years after their 
marriage Eli/.a jia.ssed away. 

Following this ber«'avement, lie was married to ,\iiuiii(la H^iiid- 
olph in 1812. Amanda was the daiigliler of I'^dward and Mai\v 
Randolph. Amanda l<'il/ Kandol|)li was descendeiit in (lie sixtli 


fi:eneration from Kdwai-il P"'itz Raiuiolpli who migrated from Not- 
tiiif^hamsliire, Enj>., to Plymouth, Mass., in A. 1). Hi.'U). Only ten 
3'ears after landinji; of the sejiaratists, l'ilj>rims at that plaee to more 
readily distinf^uished him from those of his deseeiidants who have 
home the same ^iiviMi name he is usually referred to as Edward the 
immif>rant. Soon after his arrival at Plymouth Mr. Kandolph 
located at IScitwate ahout iialf way from Plymo\ith to Boston, by 
way of the eoast and in what is Jiow Plymoutli County. James 
Fitz Han(h)lpli was falher of twenly-ont' of whom I'idward, born 
Auf^ust 10, 17SS, hein^' one of them and father of Amanda F'\t7. 
Handolph Hawkins. To tliis \inion nine children were born; Ruth, 
Mary, Lydia, Loretta, Thonms, l*]llis, Hannah, William and 

In 1844 they built a briek structure where they continued to 
live up to the tinu' of their death. Wm. Hawkins burned the brick 
and lime securing- the material on the farm for the consti'uction of 
the house. It is standin<i- at present in a j'ood state of preservation. 

He was a man of sterHng industry and prospered finely in his 
farm manap:ement. However, this property was located in the 
pathway of the cyclonic storm that swept over this part of Ohio 
in 1856 and left his lai'jic barn in ruins. Undaunted he set about 
building a new oiu' on the sanu> foundation. This was soon com- 
pleted, but a few years later was desti'oyed by lightning during a 
great electrical storm. To most men this would have been a stag- 
gering blow, but to William Hawkins whose faith in (iod was un- 
shaken by these sorry misfortunes, they seenu'd but a sjiur to his 
energy. Soon he had another bai'n on the sanu' foumlation and this 
stiMU'ture is still in good condition. 11)28. 

Father and Mother Hawkins were of a social disposition and 
were very hospitable. The celebration of birthdays and the oe- 
currenee of family reunions gave; them unbounded [)leasure. They 
had a wide cii-cle of frieiuls and were known far and near as good 
Samaritans, for they weiv ever ready and willing to lend a helping 
hand where needed. Under these cotulitions, one is not surprised 
to find their children gifted with the same noble (pudities, such 
cpuditics as help to make the world a better, happier plaee to live. 

His farm was largely devoted to stock raising, hoi'ses being his 
favorites along this line. He took [iride in a good horse and how- 
ever wild, never failed to maiuige it. He imub' sheep raising a suc- 
cess and appai'cntly took delight along this line also, it was not 
uinisual to find him caring \\)V a flock ol' five hundiv^d fine wool 

He was a man of few words and was very firm in his convictions 
as to the right. His word was his bond. Being a nmn oC wide ex- 



perience and sound judgement concerninj; many of the problems 
of life, liis eonnsel was freciwently souj^ht by others. lie never 
neglected the duties due his family and home, was never too busy 
to visit his friends and neifj:hboi-s, especially in their time of need. 
He was a devout Christian and he and his family attended Divine 
Services whenever health \voidd permit. As to this, a lady now 
nearly 82 years old who was a little ^irl, livinj; near the road alonj; 
which they |)assed {i;oin^' to church, speaks of the deli«;ht it gave 
her each Sabbath, to sec Mi'. Hawkins' beautiful team and carriage, 
the carriage loaded with chihlren, on the way to church. Thus the 
children of the family were early brought under Christian influ- 
ence that now plainly manifests itself in their maturity. 

Several years prior to his death, he turned the management of 
his farm over to his sons, Ellis and William. Ellis and his wife, 
Mary, lived with the father and mother in the old homestead and 
faithfully administered to their comforts and their needs until 
death called them to their Reward on High. 

In closing this brief sketch of William Hawkins, Sr., it is but 
just to sa}' he was a remarkable man along many lines and his 



character remains unchallenged. His word was his bond, his 
friendship was golden, his support of that which wa<s just and 
right was unfailing. His loyalty to his family and to his home"rad- 
iated all the time like sununcr sunshine. Let us droj) fresh garlands 
on his tomb.

Faithful and tru.e throup:h life 

They followed their rufr^ed way, 

Looking to cease the .strife 

And lead to a brighter day. 

Not much of gold had they 

But with love was their measure filled 

Their life held little of play, 

In God's love their grief was stilled. 

To a happier land on high 

They have climbed on a ladder of tears 

While sweet memories linger nigh 

To lighten us through the years.

TIh' inatt'i'iial ^raiid j)aiviits of livx. Williain Siiiilli were Ric!]i- 
anl and Aravilla( Durbiii ) Hawkins. 

IVv. AVilliani yniith, the subject proper of this sketch, was 
born in Harford county, Md., Febrnar\' !), 1805, and died Febru- 
ary 11), KSi)!), at tlie age of J)4 years.' At the age of 20 years 
was converted and united with Al. E. Church. ISoon after this he felt 
that God was calling him to the rainistry. True to ids convictions, 
he acct'pted the call and |)reached ins fii'st sermon f)uly 4, IH.'JO. 
He labored a few yeai's in the lialtimore ( 'onfei'ence. The first 
annual conference he attended was lu-ld in Washington City. In 
a few years he moved to Ohio and settled in ('olnnd)iana county. 
The same i-eligion that he espoused 1 cyond the moinitains, they 
brought with them. He was a tlowtT in the hands of the Lord in 
bringing the backwoods-man into the light of the gospel. 

He took charge of circuits lor a few years in the M. E. Church. 
About this tinu' the Wesleyan Church sprung into e.xistenci', its 
foundation being the abolitioii nl liiiuuui slavei-y. The anti-slavery 
principles formed in youth \\t ii .^idl the i-uling passion of his life, 
lie severed his connection with the old Church and took a position 
in the new one, into which lu' tlii'ew his entire moral force to down 
slavery. This meant persecution — but he fought the lion in his 
den until he saw the last shackle broken and cast asunder by the 
stroke of the pen wielded through the wisdom of Abraham Lincoln. 
The Proclamation of Knunici|)at ion that bi-oke tlu' chains from oft' 
four million slaves was the crowning point in the life of this |)ionee)' 
preacher. As the mission of the Wesleyan Church as a distinct 
urgani/ation was filled, he uniteil with the I'. B. Chui-ch at Mt. 
Cannal. Tust-arawas county, Ohio. He was never a traveling 
preacliei' in this church, yet he preai-hed hundreds of times since 
joining this denonunat ion. He preached his last sermon at the Mt. 
Cannal Chui'ch when at the age of DO year's. 

He bought a fai'm on which he resided up to the time of his death 
in I'err}' 'I'ownshij), Tuscarawas county, Ohio. He was mai-ried in 
1H;50 to Chai'lolte liakei', daughter of ('aplain flei-emiali liaktu- of

Well, as 1 didn't plant that brush, I soon brushed to town and built us a 
comfortable home and went to teaming. This was at Lineville, Iowa. In the 
fall of '78 we moved to Davis City, Decatur county, Iowa. In the spring of 
1879, we moved to Dewitt, Nebraska, Salene county, and in the fall of 1884, I 
went to Hitchcock county, Nebraska, and took a homestead. The spring of 
1885, April 15, I moved on my homestead and commenced to build a dugout 
and later a sod house; finally sold my homestead and took a preension and 
built a frame house 24x24, one story and full stone basement and dug a well 
80 feet and erected a Star windmill. 

Right here we began to see hard times by crop failure, caused by hot winds; 
during our nine years' stay on our homestead and preension we had our corn 
cut to the ground by hail, not even corn left to fatten a few hogs for our 
own meat. Once we had 125 acres of corn in tassel and silk and in two days 
the hot wind destroyed it and we didn't have as much as a mess of roasting 
ears and our wheat crops were invariably damaged by the draught every 
year but one in our nine years of farming. 

This ran from 1885 to 1894. One morning, we all well remembered, we 
had just five small biscuits for breakfast, and six of us to eat them. Seemed 
none were hungry for them and about two of them remained on the table 
after we were all through eating. Will say we had plenty for supper, as I 
quit farming and got a job building large Flumes to carry water across deep 
gulches for irrigation purposes. 

From then on, commenced to get shut of my land the best I could. Our two 
largest boys got so discouraged the last year they would take a good cry 
every morning they were asked to get the teams ready for work. 

We finally pulieii out with 15 heail of horses and three cows and one calf, 
and left 20 acres of the finest of spring wheat anyone ever saw and it grew 
to about six inches and dried up. We had planted about 30 acres of corn 
that spring and it got so dry we had to quit planting. 

The oldest boy and I started east to find work; took four of the biggest 
horses and a big wagon. Struck a job at Byron, Nebraska, and put my sort 
to work, while I returned home and disposed of a few hogs and some wheat 
and then struck east for Byron, Nel)raska, and left my free claim unsold. 

We landed on our job all OK, 3 miles south of Byron, Nebraska, and put 
three teams in a 125 acres of corn. We had it all nice and clean and cleaned 
up all the sand burrs we could find and the corn was coming fine and some- 
time, I can't just recall the date, but the farmers all turned out for a harvest 


jubilee a few miles south of the man by the name of C. J. Getings, a salesman 
for the International Harvester Company with headquarters at Hastings, Ne- 
braska. Mr. Getings came in home and his prospects for a bumper crop were 
fine and I was to remain on the place. Another hot wind came and I was out 
looking for anotlier jilace to light. Ha. 

I hitched up a light pair of roasters and struck back for Dewitt, Nebraska, 
where we had left the spring in April, ISHh, on a visit. Well, it looked so 
good to me I bought a pretty fair piece of property right in Dewitt. Left the 
wife and two babies with my brother and family; this was in the fall of 1891. 
I drove back to Hyron and loaded up what I had there and pulled for Dewitt, 

We landed all OK and went to getting some feed for our horses, 15 head 
of them an<l three cows, and a job to put in 120 acres of fall wheat for one, 
John and Slacey Hivi-ns, two miles northeast of Dewitt. Got that done and 
went to cutting some late corn with a binder for a man by the name of Wil- 
liam Plucknet. 

I then took a big job of grubbing for the wood and all the logs from the 
trees I grubbed out. We got some nice elm and ash logs besides a host of 
wood. I sold the ash and elm timber to a wagon maker at a good price and 
took another job for the same man cutting a lot of gaton wood logs, some of 
the trees four feet at the stump and we cut quite a few of the large trees 
and some not so small and hauled them to a saw mill close by. This about 
ends our work for IS'Jl. 

Just cut wood and fed stock until the spring. In Ai)ril, 1895, we moved 
on the farm where we i)ut out the 20 acres of wheat for John and Stacy 
Rivens and farmed the rest of their land to corn and even put the 20 acres 
we had put in wheat in corn as the wheat was sown too late to hardly get 
through the ground. I told the Bivens brothers they might as well throw 
their seed wheat in the Blue river as it was too late to sow wheat. 

Well, I got my pay for fixing the ground and putting in the wheat. I sure 
had a fine lot of corn. They called it the "mortgage lifter," but the people 
in Beatrice called it "Gt)ld Dollars." Ha! 1 didn't, however, as 1 only got 
l-Tx' per bushel and it was only Ific a bushel at Dewitt, Nebiaska, that fall. 

1 traded my tree claim I had left in Hitchcock county, Nebraska, in on a 
livery barn and moved back to Dewitt and run the barn for four years and 
then sold out and traveled from August 1900, until the later part of Novem- 
ber. We landed in North Platte and rented a house for the winter and stored 
a shooting gallery we had for the winter and went to work teaming for an- 
other man that was in the contracting business. 

We had steady work until the last of March, 1901, then we left North 
I'latte for Manawa, but sto))pe(i in Council Bluffs, Iowa, then went on to 
Manawa. In 1902 we bought three lots and built a small cottage and in 1906 
I bought three more lots and in the spring of 1908 I sold these six lots and 
reserved the cottage I had built and went two blocks east and bought four 
and one-half acres of ground and built a nine-room house. We moved into 
this house and had the cottage moved over on the corner of our acreage and 
rented it at once. 

In 1911 we converted the said cottage into a feed mill run by electricity, 
took 300 acres of land to farm, 80 acres of which was pasture. In 1912 as we 
started to harrow the listed corn I met with an accident and am lame in one 
hip and caused a iiail rupture, which 1 am still lame from. 

At Manawa, March i:i, 191.'{, we met with a destructive cyclone which moved 
our house ten fiet to the northwest, tote down all our out buildings consist- 


intc of wash room, coal shed and large chicken house with 16 foot glass front, 
scratching shed and a 10x16 foot booth for straw and pigeons and a covered 
wire pen for pigeons 10x12 feet, also unroofed our cottage and tore out one 
side and unroofed a corn crib filled with the finest of corn, 500 bushels, and 
a lot more corn stored in the feed mill and over 100 bushels of fine oats and 
took a wheat binder and leaned it up against a heavy post at the corner of 
a small stall for one team of horses. 

I sold all these oats to farmers for seed as it was full of broken glass and 
took out all the machinery and built quite a good sized mill with pit below, 
first floor and elevated grain to the second floor and return spout to the 
grinder. One foot sills and 2x20 inch joist and had a real feed mill. 

We had our house all set lia:'k in place and built a nice big cement chicken 
house and built a new fence around the four and one-fourth acres and sold out 
in February, 1U15, and bought two lots and a four room house of our son, 
Frank, and built on two bedrooms and bath and put in a hot-water heating 
plant which proved to be a success. 

In 1917, I bought another lot and a email cottage and built two more new 
cottages with four rooms all furnished with plaster and gas lights and got 
good rent for same and in September, 1919, we sold out at Manawa and went 
to Los Angeles, California. 

At once we bought property, an orange grove, in Hollywood, for $5,000 cash. 
Well, as our son, Hosea Hawkins, didn't like California — said it looked too 
much like France — as he was over in the World War — I said, "If you don't 
like it here we can sell out and return east." So I bought a home in Omaha, 
Nebraska, from our daughter, Carrie. Her husband, Mr. Sgt. E. E. Mull, was 
then over seas in the Signal Service Corps. She thought she would buy them 
a nice little home in Omaha ready to receive her husband on his return, 
which was in Sei)tember, 1919, and went to Washington, D. C. to attend the 
final parade. They are now in Fort Omaha, Nebraska, in the service. 

We sohl our orange property in just tihree months after we had bought 
it for $7,000 cash and as my property in Omaha was leased till the first of 
October 1920, we decided to buy another lot and build a house and sold that 
by the time we could get our Omaha property. Started to build February 1, 
1920. Our lot and cost of house complete wa.s $6,000 and we moved into this 
new house August 15, 1920, and sold it about August 15, 1920 for $S,000, with 
li $2,000 cash payment and when our final settlement came in 192;i we had 
received $500 interest on back money, so 1 think we hadn't lost much in mak- 
ing our trip to California, in about eleven months time and seen a world of 
nice scenery on our trip both going from and coming back to Omaha. 

About August 21, 1920, we landed in Omaha, Nebraska, a beautiful large 
city. We were met at the depot in Omaha by our son and family and two 
daughters and their husbands and their children awaiting our arrival in 
Council Bluffs, Iowa, at Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Westlands' home where we spent 
a very pleasant evening in relating to them our pleasant trip to California. 

We went over to our new home in Omaha. Our daughter, Carrie, made a 
transfer of the property to us and 1 jiaid them $1,000 more than she had paid 
for the property and in the spring of 1921, March 1, I sold the property for 
$500 more than it cost me besides no rent to pay that fall and winter. I gave 
possession March 1, 1921, and came over the river into Council llluffs'aiid 
bought projierty at .'1226, Avenue "H", wliere we now reside, and as my wife 
has asked permission to remain at this place while she is permilteil to stay 
here on e;iith, I kindly giant her wishes.

By inserting: this sketch in our history we trust 

it will spur the on-coming: generation 

to a nobler and happier life. 

Of the many stt'rliii<,' traits whicli iinmortalizi' Liiu-olii, liis love 
for tnirh transrciuls all other (|ualitii's. It heeanu- a passion with 
him, so lioly, so marked, so eoiisi-niinji- that it deslroyetl viee, coii- 
trolieil reason, solien-d judjremeul, rnthioned virtue, and enlarged 
the domain of love. 

His analysis of a mooted (|uestion ^'athei'i'd up every fibre of 
evidenee and toi'e tliein into siiird^. lie eonld see eleai' llirou^'li and 
ail aronnil ever\ prineiple. A eonilition he never made an issui-. 
An issui' he would nt'ver suffer to hv a meii' eondition. 

The oidy ^reatni'ss in men that he couKl see was troodness. One 
liad to he in the lifrlit before Lincoln i-ould see elements worthy of 
applause. Kven those in wionjr be would not judjre too hai'shiy. 
'I'he .seeond inau^uial addii'ss, the nu)st supei'b [lublie ntti-ranee 
that evei- fell from his ehxpient lips, deals ever so jrently with the 
South. lie would vindii-ate the union, and erush the rebellion, 
but motives he would not asperse. He would leave that to a hi<.du'r 
judjje than himself. 

Lineoln's love for truth may explain his indisputable plaee in 
history. It explains his hold on iin-n, and his jirasp of publii- alfaii's. 
A man of ^I'l-alci' alility, but with h-ss re^ai'd for trulh, woidd 
never have been the f(pnd of Lincoln as chief ma<ristrate in those 
Civil War days. 

I'nder the inspiration of this able examplar we can not jzo far 
astray if we emidale his life and prini-iphs. The pro|)hecy of 
America is en^M'aved on his saintly face which reflected with re- 
splendent nobility the law of jreiiei'ositx' which was wi'itten on his 

He shows how truth will iMtn(pier all ailversaries, and eventually 
win the day. He also shows how ardor for the li-uth will di'velop 
and im*rease other stionjr <|ualities of chai'acter. Love foi" truth, 
hi' teaches ns, will make a man patient. It will «ri\c him tact. It 
will completely l.anish all vindict ivi-ness and revenue. And it will 
imdxc a man an accurate jud^c of his fellows. 

When (irant took \Mcksbur^. Lincoln commended him, sayin<r. 
he thoiijrht at first that (liant's melhod was wi'on<i-, but that events 
proved that he himself was in cri'oi". IHs famous letter to Hooker, 
nnitin<r commendation with dcsci'ved criticism is a masterpiece. 
Only a Lincoln would have said thai he was willinij- to hold .McClel- 
lans lioi'se, if th;it one would onl\ win victiU'ics. \Ui\ Lini'oln's 


cliaraoter is most Inmiiious when lie tells INfeaJe to pursue Lee, 
after (^ett^■sl^ur^^ adding', "If you win, destroy tiiis order; if you 
lose, ])ui)lish it, and I'll take all tlu- hhnue.'" 

W'lu'ii all is said and tliou<_dit and done, ami the seales of life 
wei^h our outjint. it is ti'uth that will reward us, ami the laek of 
it that will eondenui us. Tlici't' is nothinjr else in life to live for. 
Jt out-tops all else. It will make of us noble men and women, in 
|)roj)orlion to tin- lovi- wc have for truth. 

Lineoln was truth itself. His life of truth, iiis ardor for it, his 
life-l«)n*r battle in its behalf show us that truth is woith living and 
dyin«r for, that it i-an be attained, that its vii-tories arr the l)est the 
woi'ld knows. 


Oil wt'vL' nu't with fiii-iids depaitt'd; 

Many arc nu'e'tiiiK still, 
Some aiL' j^foae hut still re mem be red 

With the records they have filled. 

How we miss their pleasant faces 

And their cheerful smiles. 
When we K'lther round the tables 

Wlieie they once tilled the isles. 

Yes, we miss them sadly, 

But they've passed the river o'er, 

And we hope to meet them j^'ladly 
On that happy golden shore. 

Today we meet to celebrate. 

Again this annual occasion. 
With happy hearts to initiate 

Our present generation. 

As we look ujion the children here, 
We think of what there is to be. 

That they instead of us 

Must take theii' place in the family tree. 

The children of yesterday have j^rown, 
And now are manning the ship. 

And carry on the work that has fiown 
Frtim tiur everiasling grip.
