Re: Who were the parents of:- John Edward Hawley & William James Hawley
Although I don't have a match to these particular people they are in the right place and time for Hawleys I have in my tree so they may be related.
William Joseph Jeptha Hawley was born Apr 28 1790 in Napanee, Lennox & Addington County, Ontario and died Mar 30 1861 in Fredericksburg, Norfolk County, Ontario, Canada. William is a direct ancestor to me, 6 generations.
William married Mary Perry May 1 1810 in Ernestown Township., Lennox & Addington County, Ontario, Canada and they have children through the range of the two men you are searching for information about.
William had 10 brothers. I have family for some of those but not all. It could be one of them is the father for your Jack and William.
William Joseph Jeptha Hawley's parents are Martin Hawley born Feb 20 1764 in New Milford, Litchfield County, Connecticut, USA, died Jan 20 1844 in Fredricksberg, Ontario, Canada and Amy Rogers Hawley born 1768 in Napanee, Lennox & Addington County, Ontario, died 1851 in Ontario.
If any of this looks like it might be helpful get back to me and I'll provide what information I have.
