David Hawse in Champaign Co.

Classification: Query
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?

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

Facts you should know about the early census records -
All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is parental birthplaces and family relationships +++
