ZADOCK HAWKINS Book Information

5. Peter2 HAWKINS (Zadock1 HAWKINS) was born on 24 Jan 1761 in New Milford, Connecticut. He died on 12 May 1830 in Hancock, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts, USA. This death information is based Shaker records and the circumstantial case for Peter's membership in a Shaker colony.

He was married to Susannah DURAND (daughter of John DURAND and Sarah CHATFIELD) on 30 Sep 1781 in Oxford, Connecticut. They resided in Derby, Connecticut in 1790. Susannah DURAND was born on 13 Nov 1760 in Derby, New Haven Co., Connecticut, USA. Peter HAWKINS and Susannah DURAND had the following children:

child19 i. Mary3 HAWKINS was born before 9 Mar 1784 in Derby, Connecticut, most likely.
child20 ii. Reuben3 HAWKINS was born before 22 Aug 1790 in Derby, Connecticut, most likely. A Reuben Hawkins, who was baptized as the son of Peter Hawkins on 22 August 1790 at St. James Episcopal Church in Derby, Connecticut, most likely is the child of Peter and Susan (Durand) Hawkins. We have not found another Peter Hawkins living in the area at the time. He died on 21 Feb 1870 in Pittsfield, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts, USA. Like the death information for his father, Reuben's death information depends on the circumstantial evidence that Reuben joined a Shaker Colony.
child21 iii. daughter3 HAWKINS was born before 27 Jun 1794 in Derby, Connecticut, most likely. An unnamed daughter of Peter Hawkins was baptized on 27 June 1794 at St. James Episcopal Church in Derby, Connecticut.
