ZADOCK HAWKINS Book Information

78. Ezra Eleazer4 HAWKINS (Zadock3 HAWKINS, Zadock2 HAWKINS, Zadock1 HAWKINS) was born on 1 Jun 1818 in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., Ohio, USA. He died on 10 Dec 1897 in Waltz Twp., Wabash Co., Indiana.

He was married to Nancy OWENS (daughter of Elijah OWENS and Mary "Polly" HENDRICKS) on 16 Mar 1839 in Bartholomew Co., Indiana, USA. She was one of three children of Elijah Owens who married a child of Zadock and Jane (Cooper) Hawkins. Although Elijah Owens was reported to have been married three times, it is believed that Nancy's mother was Polly Hendricks. The original marriage record of Ezra and Nancy is a bit confusing. It appears the license was granted on 16 March 1839. However, the notation that they were actually married appears to indicate they were married on 7 March 1839. The former was recorded on 16 March 1839. The latter was dictated by the minister and recorded by the County Clerk on 20 June 1839. Because of this confusion, we use 16 March as the marriage date.
