ZADOCK HAWKINS Book Information
80. Mary Jane4 HAWKINS (Zadock3 HAWKINS, Zadock2 HAWKINS, Zadock1 HAWKINS) was born about 1825 in Kentucky, USA. She died about 1892. She probably died in Ottawa, La Salle Co., Illinois.
She was married to Ira D. WAY (son of
Ira WAY and Mary A. SUTTON) on 15 Feb 1840 in Bartholomew
Co., Indiana, USA. Ira and Mary Jane appeared on the 1850 U.S. Census in Richland
Twp., Fulton Co., Indiana near many of the other relatives. In 1860 they appeared
on the census in North Bend Twp., Starke Co., Indiana, only a few miles from
where they had lived ten years earlier. They removed to Illinois, probably around
1865, because one of their sons was born there around 1866. They seem to have
settled in the Marshall Co., Illinois or Putnam Co., Illinois area as many of
the family members appeared there in subsequent years. Mary Jane appeared on
the 1880 U.S. Census in Magnolia Twp., Putnam Co., Illinois. Dr. Hawkins' book
indicates that Ira and Mary Jane settled in Arkansas. However, there doesn't
seem to be any other information to suggest they ever spent time in that state.
Since Mary Jane's sister Lucenia and part of her family were in Arkansas at least
around 1900, it is possible the locations of the two sisters got mixed up.
Ira D. WAY was born on 22 Apr 1819 in Kentucky, USA. His middle
name may have been David, as his maternal grandfather's name was David. He died
on 4 Jan 1872 in Putnam Co., Illinois, most likely. He was buried in Magnolia
Cemetery, Putnam Co., Illinois. Mary Jane HAWKINS and Ira D. WAY had the following
She was married to Thomas LOWE Sr. on 17 Mar 1881 in Magnolia Twp., Putnam Co., Illinois. Thomas LOWE Sr. was born about 1810 in England. He died on 19 Mar 1886.
