David Hawse was born 13 Feb 1813 in Rockingham Co., Virginia. In 1834, he married Elizabeth Evers in Rockingham Co. They had eight children, all born in Rockingham Co. In Oct 1853, David moved his entire family to Champaign Co., Ohio.
One of his children was named David Hawse and was born 14 Apr 1846. Both Davids appear in the 1870 census in Urbana, Champaign Co., Ohio.
U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules for 1880 lists David Hawse, age 37, deceased in Urbana, Champaign Co., Ohio. That was probably David Jr. who would actually have been 34 years old.
I have been unable to locate any record of David Hawse Sr. after 1870 in Urbana.
I would deeply appreciate any information you might have about him?
