ZADOCK HAWKINS Book Information

73. Malinda4 HAWKINS (Zadock3 HAWKINS, Zadock2 HAWKINS, Zadock1 HAWKINS) was born on 21 Jul 1806 in Kentucky, USA. This date is based on her age at death. She died on 3 Oct 1870 in Fulton Co., Indiana, most likely. According to Dr. Hawkins' book, she died 3 October 1879, aged 64 years, 2 months, 12 days. This probably was a typographical error. Her grave marker indicates she died 3 October, 1870 with the same age at death.

She was married to William OWENS on 4 Jun 1824 in Grant Co., Kentucky, USA. William and Malinda appeared on the U.S. Censuses in 1850, 1860, and 1870 in Richland Twp., Fulton Co., Indiana, which is just across the county line from Union Twp., Marshall Co., where many other family members lived. In 1880 after Malinda had died, William appeared on the census of Henry and Isabelle COOPER where William is listed as an uncle of the head of the household. Henry was living in Richland Twp., Fulton Co., Indiana. Henry had appeared on earlier censuses living near William and Malinda. William OWENS was born on 15 Mar 1789 in Virginia. His age varies considerably on several of the census records. The 1850 census suggests he was born around 1797. The 1860 census suggests a birth around 1785. His birth year derived from the 1870 census was around 1786. Finally, the 1880 census suggests he was born around 1789. It is interesting that his birth year varies so much on these four census records, especially since the birth year of his wife, Malinda, varies very little on the three censuses during which she was living. Her birth year derived from the 1850, 1860, and 1870 censuses is about 1806, 1806, and 1807, respectively. He died on 31 Oct 1881.
