The Family of Zadock Hawkins is now available. This book traces over 5000 descendants of Zadock Hawkins of Derby, Connecticut, and his wife Lydia Wilmot. It also gives the names and some biographical information about their ancestors.
Zadock Hawkins and two of his sons served in the American Army during the American Revolutionary War. Zadock died after less than a year in the army, probably as a result of illness. A few months before he died one of his sons deserted the American Army and joined a Loyalist unit fighting with the British against the Americans. That son settled in Pennfield, New Brunswick, where many of his descendants reside today. The other son who served in the American Army left the service about a year and a half after Zadock died. That son went to Kentucky as did at least two of his brothers and their mother, Lydia. Another son settled in Vermont while still another appears to have joined a Shaker colony in Massachusetts.
