ZADOCK HAWKINS Book Information

81. Elijah F.4 HAWKINS (Zadock3 HAWKINS, Zadock2 HAWKINS, Zadock1 HAWKINS) was born on 11 Nov 1827 in Kentucky, USA. He died on 26 Sep 1908 in Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon. Dr. Hawkins' book has the following to say about Elijah. "After a somewhat stormy married life, Elijah deserted Rebecca Hawkins and emigrated to Texas where he was again married and raised a family of children. He later moved to Portland, Oregon where he died September 30, 1908 [death record says 26 Sept. 1908] at the age of 80 years."

He was married to Rebecca BRANDOM (daughter of John BRANDOM and Margaret WALKER) on 17 Oct 1852 in Fulton Co., Indiana. Rebecca was the widow of Elijah's older brother, Elisha, who died around 1850. Elijah and Rebecca appeared on the 1860 U.S. Census in Washington Twp., Miami Co., Indiana. He was divorced from Rebecca BRANDOM on 2 Jan 1891. That is the official date that appears on the divorce that Rebecca received. However, Elijah had clearly deserted Rebecca long before that, as she appeared alone, without Elijah, on the 1870 U.S. Census in Peru City, 2nd Ward, Miami Co., Indiana. After her divorce from Elijah was finalized, she married James Finney, who had been married to Denicy Hawkins until her death. Rebecca BRANDOM was born on 9 Feb 1819 in Indiana, USA. Her maiden name appears in various records as both Brandom and Brandon. Her maiden name is listed as RUPE on one record. Undoubtedly this is because Rebecca's father died when she was young and her mother had remarried to a man named Rupe. Rebecca's brother Boswell Brandom was the father of Mary Jane Brandom, who married Jasper Scott Hawkins. She died on 13 Apr 1900 in Argos, Marshall Co., Indiana, USA.
