Windsor, Litchfield Hills and Lyman Beecher:

we came, we saw, we learned.

Another great Hawley Society Reunion thanks to Barbara Hawley and Janet Hawley Sosnicki, sisters and our local co-chairs.

We toured the New England Air Museum, had a walking tour of Windsor, After a lunch break (on one of the first official settlements in Connecticut

A bus tour to Litchfield Hills in northwestern Connecticut landed us at the Litchfield Historical Society for a guided walking tour of the important sites in town, focusing on the Lyman Beecher family who lived in Litchfield while Lyman was pastor of the Congregational Church.

Bussed on to Norfolk and a private tour of the Battel Chapel, known for its stained glass windows, some of which were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Next, the Pond Town cemetery where the Austin Hawley family is buried. On to Colebrook, and the “Church in the Wildwood” and Colebrook General Store, known as the oldest continuously operating general store in Connecticut.

On the trip back we stopped at the scenic Barkhamsted Reservoir for photos.

The final day was the annual meeting in Matthies Hall at the Oliver Ellsworth Homestead in Windsor.  Genealogist Trudy Hawley provided a presentation on Lyman Beecher and family and the Harriet Beecher Stowe connection to the Hawley family. The Connecticut DAR guides took us through the Oliver Ellsworth home.  Plans are for the next reunion in Fairfield County, CT in the area where Joseph Hawley settled in the 1630s.

The best part of the reunion is, of course, getting to meet and renew new and old family members from Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, Illinois, Arizona, Washington, California, Texas,  Minnesota, Oregon, and Ontario, Canada.

      Linda Hawley - Alison,

      Did you receive our recent newsletter? The two hotels are given with rates, etc. We have been given the Hawley rate for 3 days before and after, which will fit you perfectly. We will tour Historic Philadelphia on the Friday of the event. Valley Forge on Thursday. You will stay in Valley Forge/King of Prussia area. As far as renewing your dues, since we are still trying to put together the information from the last few years, I can’t answer you. You can hold off paying your dues until we meet in October, or earlier once we have established a new bank account for the Society.
      Hope this answers your questions.

    A. Adonna Selbert Gosson - Hello to the Hawley’s,
    I am the granddaughter of Daniel Richard Hawley Sr. I believe he came from Middletown, NY and lived in Rochester, NY. He married S. Adonna (Clarisa) Calkins daughter of Veranous and Sarah Calkins, Varysburg, NY.
    My grandfather worked at Kodak Park until his retirement. Then they moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla where they are both buried in the Ft. Lauderdale Cemetery. I have very little information on my grandfather but I do know he had a brother John, ? sister Polly, sister Mary Ellen who died as an infant. Possibly a brother George. Daniel had a daughter Thelma Adonna Hawley Ryan, daughter Audrey June Hawley Selbert and a son Daniel R. Hawley Jr. All of his children were born in Rochester, NY and all but Audrey moved to Florida in their adult years. My grandfather died on April 1, 1970 from complications following surgery for a fractured hip. He was a wonderful man with a keen sense of humor.
    We have my grandmothers linage that goes back to Hugh Calkins who came to Conn. in 1600. But very little on my grandfather. I am hoping that you can help filling in the gaps.
    Thank you,
    Adonna Gosson

    Alice - Cemetery stone for Clement Hawley 1803-4 Dec 1879 turned up at Hudson View Cemetery, Mechanicville, Saratoga County, New York.
    I’ve entered Clement’s memorial as Find A Grave 131320942. I have no clue why he is in Saratoga County… seems to be the same guy who was married to Adaline Hawley of Jefferson County, New York, Find A Grave 89983044.

    Linda Melnik - Hi Trudy; My mother’s maiden name is Hawley and I have hit a brick wall with this line. I came across your web site and wonder if my ancestors are part of your research effort. My mother Ethelwyn was born in 1907, her father Cheselton was born in 1877, his father Elisha Smith Hawley wss born in 1836. All of these except Cheselton (who was born in Kansas) were born in Michigan. Elisha’s father was William born in 1809 I think in New York. William’s father Levi was born (again I think) in Connecticut in 1770 and married Olive Paine. That’s as far back as I can go. Would this line of Hawley’s be in your research areas? Any help and/or advise would be much appreciated.ReplyCancel

    Peter Blauvelt - Trudy, I am a Hawley descendant through the Stratford line. My grandfather was Bradford William Hawley (b. 12 May 1900) and his father was George Samuel Hawley (b. 5 Dec 1878).

    From rootweb (at least) it appears that you have only very limited information on my mother’s generation in this line, and none on my generation.

    I can provide substantial detail on both of those most recent generations if you wish. Please let me know the best way to do this to make it easy on yourself or others. If there is a form or something like that, please explain.

    If you already have the information for these last two generations in that line, please disregard,

My father married, had a son, DAVID, remarried my mother, Eleanor Garforth and had three more children, LEE, JOHN, and ELEANOR (me). I believe ANNE resided in New York state. I believe I also had an UNCLE LEE, a chemist, but don’t have much more information than that.

    JOHN HORACE HAWLEY worked for KODAK, and also served is the US NAVY as a photographic interpreter. My father passed, while visiting in Phoenix in approximately 1956 – or 1957. Can you link JOHN HORACE HAWLEY to this great line of HAWLEY ancestry?ReplyCancel

    Patti Bryan - I am concerned about the information I have on Ephraim Hawley, born in 1647 to Samuel Hawley and Patience Nichols. RootsWeb and some other sources have Ephraim’s death date as 1771, making Ephraim 124 years old. That is rather hard to believe. Other sources state that he died in 1690, possibly hit by lightning as he rode his horse. They also state that his wife was Sarah Welles, and his children were Daniel, Gideon, and Abiah.
    What’s going on with Ephraim?ReplyCancel

    • August 22, 2016 - 1:55 pm

      Tom Pieragostini - Patti,

      I saw your question/post here. I own/live in the Ephraim Hawley House in Nichols, CT (built 1670-1690). You’re confusing two different people named Ephraim Hawley. Your Ephraim, who died in 1771, was born in 1692, not 1647 (79 years old @ death). The other Ephraim, born in 1659, (your Ephraim’s uncle) married Sarah Welles and had three children; Daniel, Gideon and Abiah. He died intestate in 1690. A copy of the inventory of his estate, which did not include a horse, is on file at the Fairfield County Probate Court in Fairfield, CT.

      Thank you!

    William L. "Bill" Brown - While researching my ancestors in the 9th Arkansas, I ran across your entry in Rootsweb World Connect on Capt. James Harvey Hawley, commanding officer of Company “A” of that unit. My GG grandfather Henry Harrison Carter (1841-1899) and three of my Chamberlain 3rd great uncles were in that company. I have a copy of a Civil War letter dated October 18, 1861, written by my ” ” uncle Lawson Noonan Chamberlain (1832-1862) from camp in Union City, Tenn. He sent the letter to his sister, my great great grandmother, Mary Ann Chamberlain Brown (1835-about 1868) living in Drew Co, Ark at that time. The letter mentions Captain Hawley.

    In a small book I have called “The History Of Camp Beauregard, Ky”, there is a typed transcription of a 1918 letter from Grady, Ark written by the former Captain Hawley. It concerns the effort to erect a monument at that camp in Ky where many Confederate soldiers died of disease.

    I’d be happy to send you copies of both items. I do have these questions.

    1 — Ancestry.com shows James born in Ky in 1825 & dying in Grady – Lincoln Co, Ark in 1900. Your entry shows him born in 1834 in Pine Bluff – Jefferson Co, Ark. When do you show his death?

    2 — Do you have any photos of James or other family members? A photo of his grave? Any other information on him and the family? I I have a picture of the youngest Chamberlain GGG uncle, John William (1842-1932) Thanks a lot.

He married a Lydia Root in 1799 according to both Connecticut and Massachusetts Vital Records and she died in Ohio in 1808 at the age of 28. He then married for a second time to a Nancy Hall in 1809. There is reference to
    Lydia Root’s birthdate on your entry and I wondered what your source for that was and whether the notes you mention:
    (Title: Huftalen, Mrs Sarah (author of Abner Hawley manuscript), additional research notes Publication: Manchester, Iowa, 15 February 1941)

    Sherri Teague - Hi, I recently had my DNA done with Ancestry.com which links me to others on ancestry that matches my DNA with the name of Hawley. I have not confirmed that Thomas Hawley b. 1609 is my 10th great grandfather and Elizabeth Hawley b. 1607 is my 10th great grandmother. Elizabeth married Richard Booth who had John Booth. Thomas married Dorothy Harbottle who had Dorothy Hawley. Dorothy married John Booth and had Ephraim Booth. Dorothy is my 9th great grandmother. Ephraim is my 8th great grandfather. I can trace this line all the way back to my mother whose maiden name was Harris. Any light you can give me would be much appreciated. I might just have the wrong Hawley’s.

    Florence Kellogg - My Great Grandmother is Eliza Ann Hawley daughter of Gideon Hawley and Elizabeth Caldwell She is the granddaughter of Gideon Hawley Sr. and Levina Darrow.
    My Grandmother was living in Tazewell county Illinois when she met and married Robert Kellogg of Pekin. My Grandfather George Albert Kellogg was born just south of the family farm in Delavan Plain.

    I have a beautiful “birds eye” map of the Norman Hawley coal mines and family home. The map shows the family cemetery up on a hill behind the barn. All of this is still in place in Cincinnati Twp. just south of the city of Pekin. The elder Gideon my great great great grandfather was born in Vermont as was my great great grandfather who is buried in this family cemetery in Tazwell county. Unfortunately the cemetery has been vandalized but it is still recognizable from the old 1860’s birds eye map. Norman married a Mary Martin and they had some difficulties in their marriage and I have a newspaper account of that incident from 1893. They were quite the scandal. Marys parents, Ellen and James Martin,are also buried in the Hawley family cemetery. Norman would have been my Great Grandmothers brother. I believe that relatives Al and Carole Martin of Pekin may have provided the information regarding the cemetery. I am wondering if they are on this site. I live in Aurora Illinois now for the last 16 years having lived most of my life in Ohio. I am so excited to find the histories of so many of my Kellogg,Hawley,and Rowen family members who came west as part of the great migration. I would like to make contact with cousins etc..
    My great grandmothers Aunt Caroline married Willard Scott and they became the founding family of Naperville. Oddly that is where my daughter settled and raised her children after moving to Chicago 25 years ago to attend Loyola. We had no idea until just this last year when a cousin and I started communicating regarding the Hawleys. White Eagle is a common name associated with an Indian name given to Willard Scott and my daughter lived within a mile of a new development given that name. We do have quite a lot of information regarding the Kelloggs and the Hawleys.ReplyCancel

    Linda Arvay - Hello Trudy,

    I would like to participate in the DNA testing and if I understand this correctly – “The Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test. The importance of the information allows one to scientifically understand the genetic connection or lack thereof to others in the study.” Please let me know which test I should take as my Mother is a “Hawley” her Father was from Roanoke Virginia. So my DNA is from my Mother and it is not clear which test would e the correct one for me to provide some value to you.

    Thank you

    I’ve been doing quite a bit of genealogy research lately and recently discovered the Hawley line in my family tree. I’m very intrigued by all the stories about the lives of each of my Hawley ancestors. One of their life stories still eludes me though. I’ve been looking for more information on my 5th great grandfather, Martin Hawley (son of Jeptha Hawley and Esther Castle). Is there any information the Society has that is available on him? If not, do you know of any other sources to find any?

    Thank you

    Alison Hawley-Washington - I’m arriving for the 2016 reunion and didn’t know what the transportation situation will be. I will have a rental car, but I have not received any instructions where we need to drive too and meet for Valley Forge. I was unclear if a touring bus was picking us up for the Philadelphia portion of the trip and if we needed to drive separately to the Freedom site for the annual meeting. In other words the logistics of all this. Will there be instructions at the hotel. I’ll be at the Best Western in King of Prussia. Please advise. I may have to print off some driving maps.ReplyCancel

      Darleen Hawley Brander - Hello Elmer Dodds,
      My father was Leo Hawley. He married my mother and they had five children. The marriage broke up when I was quite young so there are a lot of Hawley’s I don’t know. I am now interested in family history and I found that our great grandfather was James Leroy Hawley. Do you who his parents would be? Our great grandmother would be Lucy Stone Hawley. Any information would be appreciated.ReplyCancel

    Duffy Andrea Hawley - I just came across the HAWLEY family crest. My Dad was named Arthur James Hawley, aka Patrick Hawley (born in Leeds England in 1920 and moved to US as kid, Hollywood actor and deceased in 1997) His Dad was Arthur James and he was a Bobbie in England and was in the Royal Navy WWI. I have no idea if I have any family roots to anyone. My Mom was from Norway. I went there this summer in hopes to find my roots, but no luck.ReplyCancel

    Susan PLUNKETT - I am also a ggggranddaughter of Delia Hawley who was married to William Boyd Sr. and they were the parents of Chloe Boyd who married Isaac Loshaw. They lived eventually in a place called Lewisham, Ryde Tsp. Ontario Canada. They had many children and their daughter Katherine was my great grandmother who married George Edwards.

    If anyone has information about Delia Hawley and her parents name and background could you please help with my research as I have not been able to find out anything about her other than this Delia (Hawley) Boyd born June 28, 1812, Ellisburg, Jefferson Co. New York and died 1901 Enniskillen, Lambton, Ontario, Canada

    Sorry I didn’t write down where these links are on my notes but that is all that I have found so far.

    Thanks for any help and happy searching everyone.ReplyCancel

    Lee Borton - While researching my ancestor, in hopes of finding more information regarding his life, I ran across the the name Edward Hawley. He and my ancestor were fined as Quakers in 1673. I was hoping to determine what English county Edward Hawley was from, since that would give me a clue where to find the information regarding the fines in the Bess Book: “A Collection of Sufferings of the Peoples called Quakers”. My ancestor was from Anyho, England and your potential ancestor is mentioned in a book by Nicholas Cooper called: “Aynho, A Northamptonshire Village”. If you know of anything or run across any information, please let me know. Thank You.ReplyCancel

    Stephanie Hawley Kingrey - I’m trying to track down others from extended family. My father is the oldest of five, Art Hawley, and his father is Thomas Hawley. Both were in military. I do not know grandfathers family, siblings or parents/aunts/uncles. Would really like to try to track the family back to roots. My dad said he was told his family was Dutch and Polish, and dads side German. No idea how accurate that is. Thanks for your help!!ReplyCancel

    ken williams - I wonder if someone can help me with my research. I have in my tree William Hawley, of Albany. Syracuse, born 1840, the evidence for this was in his obit.

    The information I have so far- my great great Aunt Agnes Wilson, born Shipham, Somerset, England 1849 came to America sometime in the 1870’s,( I have not been able to solve why a single woman travelled to America on her own)

    in 1881 I know that William and Agnes Hawley were living in Minesotta, as their daughter Sadie Agnes Hawley was born in Minosotta 1881. I believe they were in Kitson County.

    In 1883 the family emigrated to Rat Portage (renamed 1905 KENORA), Ontario,
    Canada and are indexed on the 1891 census for Canada. In 1894 Agnes died of cancer
    and William died 1927. I photos of their grave in Kenora, Ont, Canada.

    William served in the civil war and I have a photo of him in uniform.

    I have only found one William Hawley from Albany born 1840 on the 1860 USA census and his father was Isaac Hawley and Mother Deborah Hawley (this of course might be a red herring).

    If anyone can help me with my research i really would appreciate it.
