Where did you come up with the name Henry as Johannas "John" Hawk's father? Do you have any paper infor to back it up. If so I would love to see it. I can't seem to find only the name John as his father. This is what I have please share with me your information.

Taken from Brown County Ohio, Huntington Township, by Samuel Evans. " John Hawk was a Pennsylvanian and in 1807 settled on the farm owned by Owen Griffeth. His wife's name was Susan Crabb, and by her he had the following children: Henry, Phillip, Jacob, Isaas (died young), Abram, William, Nathan, Susan, Sarah, Christena, Rebecca, Elizabeth and Catharien. Samuel Willson married Christena Hawk about the year 1819, and settled on the farm owned by his son William, near the mouth of Three-Mile Creek. He was a fifer in the war of 1812, and died about twenty-five years ago; his widow is still living, eithty-three years Old."

The Will of John Hawke (Hawk) was written on July 28, 1818 and Probated Nov. 21, 1826. Witness to this will were William Anderson and John Anderson. Those named in the will are: Wife Susanna, sons, Jacob, Phillip, Abraham, John, Willam, Nathan and Henry; daughters are Sarah called Sarah Wallace, Christian called Christian Wilson, Susanna Hawke, Elizabeth Hawke, and grandsons, John Hawke, son of Henry and John Wilson, Listed as Executors is John Cochan.
Note the spelling on the last name in the will is HAWKE.

Taken from the book History of Hancock Co., Indiana, Its People, Industries and Institution, by George J. Richman, B.L. Federal Publishing Co., Indianapolis, Indiana 1916, Under Biograhies Is listed a David F. Hawk. (He is the son of James Cunningham Hawk, b. Sept. 28, 1824, grandson of Henry Hawk, b. April 18, 1787 this Henry was the son of Johannas/John Hawk b. abt. 1765)
"Henry Hawk was the son of John Hawk, who was born in Germany. John Hawk, with his parents, settled in Washington County. He was the son of John Hawk, SR. Both he and his wife died in Washington Co., Pennsylvania. John Hawk, Jr., the eldest of the sons, enlisted in Capt. William Berryhill's Company of the Cumberland Brigade of the Pennsylvania Militia and served until the close of the war. He was with Washington at Valley Forge and was present at the surrender of the Brish at Yorktown. David F. Hawk, the subject of this sketch, still has in his possession the ary Rifle which his great-grandfather carried in the Revolutionary War. this gun was also carried by his grandfather, Henry Hawk, in the War of 1812. John Hawk, Jr., after the Revolution, was married and migrated to Mason Co., Kentucky, where he lived for twelve years. He was ther joined by his brother Samuel and they together moved to Brown County, Ohio, where they settled and died about 1840."

Will we know John Hawk died in Brown Co. Ohio in 1826 now in about 1840. Grandfather Henry Hawk was in the war of 1812. and a John Hawk did serve in the Capt. William Berryhill's Comp. But Capt. William Berryhill, only served from 1780 till 1783 and a John Hawk was serving with him at that time. If that John Hawk is our John Hawk. He was only 15 years old in 1780. Valley Forge happen the winter of 1777. Our John Hawk was then only about 12. I don't believe he was at Valley Forge.
BUT, there are two John Hawks in the Cumberland Brigade. One was there much early in time for Valley Forge. Was he the Father of our John Hawk (Also a John Hawk and the above story tell's? and that is why the story of Valley Forge and the surrender at Yorktown in family history, were both father and son in the war and only the part of the story told over the years as one Hawk and not Two in the war. Also who is this Samuel Hawk, the brother of John. I have not been able to find him. Wish I could.

What do you think.

Hi,
My mother, LaVon contacted you about the Hawk's in 2001. The Henry Hawk & Susan Flaugher line is related to us. We are also related to the Owen Griffith's line also. I have another Henry Hawk that had a daughter named Nancy Ann Hawk. Nancy married a Thomas Jefferson Kennedy in Rush County, IN. Any help on this line would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance for all your help. May God Bless You, Donna.

I am a Great Grandson of Bethuel M. Hall & Elnora Jane Hawk Hall. Jonannas (John)had a son named Nathaniel Hawk b 1833 in Allen Co Ohio. Then Nathaniel (Nathan) married Elizabeth J. Hall and had a daughter Elnora or Elinora Jane and that is my line of Hawks. Althrough I have never met any of them.
