HAWK

 

 

My Hawk ancestors

GENERATION 1

01. Hans Jerg Hag (also known as Johann George Haag) was born about 1707.  He married Catherina.  Hans and family arrived in Philadelphia on September 1748 aboard the ship Hampshire.  His age on arrival was recorded as 41 and he was accompanied by his wife and 6 children, none of them named.  The ship listed the spelling as "Yerich Hack", but George could write and signed both the Oath of Allegiance and the Oath of Abjuration as "Hans Jerg Hag".     George states that he came down the river Rhine, which borders on the Palatinate and Badan- Wurttenberg areas of Germany.  Recent discoveries have shown at least 4 children of Hans who came over with him from Reutlingen, Wurttemburg, Germany.   Source:  "Early German Hawk Families of Westmoreland County, PA" by Kenneth Hawk Slaker (1990)

GENERATION 2

02. Conrad Hawk, son of Hans and Catherina was born in 1741 in Reutlingen, Wurttemburg, Germany.   While still a child, he came to America with his father in 1748. He married his wife Sarah Catherine Williams in about 1759. With the growth of the families and the shrinkage of available land in Lehigh Township, word of the "New Purchase" by Penn, located west of the Allegheny mountains, inspired the younger family members to seek this new land. Conrad, along with his brother-in-law, arrived at the land office to file their claim in March 1770. Conrad's claim was on Brush Creek, Hempfield Township, Cumberland County. He constructed a cabin and returned to Lehigh Township. In the spring of 1771, Conrad and Sarah, their children, along with George and Catherine Haag, departed Northampton County for this new land.  In the early spring of 1774, Conrad took his family and his parents to the eastern side of the mountains. Their absence from all church records in Westmoreland County for the next three years authenticates this move. No doubt Conrad visited his sister, Catherine Best and her husband William, and influenced their later move to Westmoreland County by informing them that the farm adjacent to his was to be sold the following year for back taxes. Conrad returned to Westmoreland County later that spring with supplies for his farm, his neighbors, and for Ft. Allen, which was under construction. For this return trip across the mountains, he hauled his freight in a Conestoga wagon built in Lancaster County, and by so doing, made history. To quote from the Western Pennsylvania History Magazine, Vol. VI, page 139: "These pack horses streamed over the mountains in endless cavalcades, but in 1774, Conrad Hawk drove a wagon over the mountains, and this event also marked a significant milestone in early transportation in the Monongahela river valley."  Source:  "Early German Hawk Families of Westmoreland County, PA" by Kenneth Hawk Slaker (1990)

GENERATION 3

03. Michael Hawk, the last known child of Conrad and Sarah Williams Hawk, was born in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, on the 6th of August 1784. He was baptised on the 5th of April 1785, in the Zion Lutheran Church by Anton Lutge.  His sponsors were Michael Rup and Christina Williams, the wife of Daniel Williams. Michael's mother died when he was 4 years old; therefore, he was raised by his step-mother, Elizabeth Walker Hawk, who married his father in 1789. The Federal Census of 1790 showed Michael living with his father at Hawksworth, the name of the family farm.  Church records show that Michael, in his 12th year, was confirmed into the Zion Lutheran Church on the 8th of April in the year 1797. He was as communicate at the First Lutheran Church of Greensburg on the 5th of April 1801. In 1804 he married Delilah Minnie Clevenger.   Michael was listed on the Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County tax roll for 1805, but did not appear on any subsequent tax rolls in this county. His name does not show in the Greensburg Lutheran Church records after 1805, which supports family history that he departed ca 1807 for Ohio. Whether his brother, Conrad Hawk Junior who made a trip to Huron, Ohio, in 1808, talked Michael into migrating to Ohio, or vice versa, Michael packed his belongings and left for Ohio. Whether he went overland, or took a boat down the Ohio, is not known, but he settled in Pickaway County, Ohio.   Michael left Delilah ca 1824, and purchased a lot in Pickaway County.  Michael died interstate in 1833. Delilah, not holding deed to the farm in Fayette County, filed suit to settle the ownership problem.  Source:  "Early German Hawk Families of Westmoreland County, PA" by Kenneth Hawk Slaker (1990)

Note: Contact with a Hawk researcher has brought to light an alternate theory on the ancestry of David Hawk (#4).  Click here to see this proposed ancestry for David.  The ancestry of David above is from Slaker's book with data provided by Linda Howell to connect to Michael Hawk.
GENERATION 4

04. David Hawk  - The book "Early German Hawk Families of Westmoreland County, PA" by Kenneth Hawk Slaker (1990) p. 278 has this history on David:

"David was born on Sep. 27, 1819 in Madison Township, Fayette County, Ohio. David Married Eleanor Jones who was born October 21, 1820 in Washington County, Ohio. They moved to Sugar Creek Township, Hancock County, Indiana in the early 1840's. In 1851, they moved further west to Champaign County, Illinois. A land warrant was issued to David Hawk of Champaign County on the 1st of February 1853.
In 1872, they moved west again, this time to Iowa. In the 1880 census of Denison, Crawford, Iowa, David is listed as age 61 and head of household with occupation listed as carpenter. The same census lists both his parents being born in Ohio. Another census taken the same year shows his occupation as "Farmer" with both parents being born in Pennsylvania! Ten years later in 1882, a final move was made to Buffalo Co., Nebraska. Eleanor died here on the 5th of September 1890. David passed away a little over eight years later on the 15th of December 1898 (at the home of his son Joseph). Both were interned in the cemetery in Kearney, Nebraska. They had 11 children."

According to grandaughter Grace, David was also a barber. 
The parents of Eleanor Jones are not known.  There is no known connection to my Jones family.

GENERATION 6

06. Grace Myrtle Hawk, the eldest daughter of Nathaniel and Anna was born on August 18, 1885 in Armada, Nebraska.  The index "Oregon, Births and Christenings, 1868-1929" shows her birth date. By 1895 she made the journey from Nebraska to Texas with her family in a covered wagon.  Her brother Leonard was born in Blue Ridge, Texas in 1895.  They made the move to Portales, New Mexico by 1903. She married (1) Ernest Schwiening, son of Friedrich Schwiening and Sophia Schmull on August 5, 1903 and son Walter was born in 1904.  That was the same year her brother Eugene was born.  Her daughter Irene was born in 1908.  By the 1910 Census they had made the move to Oregon. Her sister Ruth was born that year. The 1920 Census shows Grace aged 34.  Daughter Betty was born in 1922.  The 1930 Census hows Grace age 44 living in Corvallis.  The 1940 Census shows Grace age 54 with Ernest age 67 and Paulina age 17. Ernest died on September 15, 1944.  She then married (2) Frank Hollis DeKalb and lived with him until his death on July 29, 1957.  She lived by herself for a number of years in Corvallis before moving to a nursing home in Salem, Oregon around 1974 to be closer to her daughter, Irene.  She died in December, 1984 at age 99.    I descend from their daughter Irene Schwiening who married William Marshall

Books

"Early German Hawk Families of Westmoreland County, PA"

by Kenneth Hawk Slaker (1990)   508 pages

I purchased this book from the author back when he still had some in stock.  There are a number of libraries in the US where you can view the book (do a search on the web) and Higginson will make a copy of it for you.

 

Reunions

A Hawk reunion was held on September 16, 2000 at the Fairgrounds in Freemont, Ohio for the descendants of Conrad Hawk and related families.   For further information, contact Missy Mowry or Deb Sherman.
