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 children:
