I have recently identified my HAWTHORN/HATHORN line and need help putting some dates and details on this family. Oldest ancestor is Samuel HAWTHORN, no birth date, death would have been before 4Aug1817 when his widow deeded a slave to her daughter. Wife is Jannet (MNU). I've identified two children so far: Susannah, b. bet 1765-1784, d. bet. 1820-1830, m. Zachariah OWENS abt 1790 George, d. bet Jan 20, 1817 and Oct 13, 1820, Williamsburg District, SC, m. Jennet (MNU).
George's will mentions the following people: wife Jennet.Susannah OWENS, sister, and two of her sons, Samuel and James.Samuel HAWTHORN and daughter Jane.James DANIEL and his daughters Jenny, Elizabeth, Jane and Martha.Hugh HAWTHORN, Nancy CHANDLER and Margaret CHANDLER.Samuel CHANDLER and Samuel JONES were executors.
He only states relationships for his wife and his sister Susannah.I'm guessing that Samuel, Hugh, Nancy and Margaret are siblings.James DANIEL may be as well, but he may also be George's wife's brother.
Jannet HATHORN is in the census in 1800 with 9 boys in the household, 1 10-15 and 8 16-25.That would seem to indicate that George's sisters were old enough to be out of the house by 1800 (Susannah was) and that I am missing a number of sibling names.
I found an obit in the Southern Christian Herald, August 1837 for Hugh HAWTHORN.He was a minister and drowned in Clarkville, Habersham Co, GA in July 1837.States he was born in Fadney, County Down, Ireland.Not sure if the same Hugh as mentioned in George's will.
Samuel appears to have served with the SC militia during the Revolution so he was in SC by 1782. Any help appreciated. I gladly share information.
