PROF. WILLIAM BRAMWELL HAYWARD

PROF. WILLIAM BRAMWELL HAYWARD, Ohio County, may be justly classed among the efficient and prominent educators of the State of Kentucky. He was born June 20, 1832, in Monroe County, N. Y., and in 1852 removed to Louisville, Ky., since which time he has been principally engaged in promoting the educational interests of the State. He has taught in Jefferson, Shelby, Daviess, Grayson, Hardin, Meade, Ohio, Breckinridge, and Hart Counties; was president of Salem College and also of Cloverport High School, both chartered institutions; was assistant elector for the State at large in the campaigns of 1868 and 1884, on the Democratic side, having served in his district in the same capacity in 1860, on the Douglas ticket; was a prominent candidate for superintendent of public instruction in 1883, being endorsed by every county, in which he canvassed, and many others. His father, Rev. Asahel Hayward, born July 6, 1802, in New York, was long a member of the Genesee Conference, located in McHenry County, Ill., in 1843, and died in Lyle, Mower Co., Minn., February 12, 1859. He was the son of a Revolutionary soldier, who was the father of ten children. Asahel Hayward married Eliza Wildman, of Truxton, N. Y., born August 16, 1805, of Revolutionary stock from Massachusetts, and died September 27, 1848, in Millville, Orleans Co., N. Y.; their union was blessed by the birth of Prof. William B., Hon. Wilbur M. and Henry W. (died in the army from Illinois). Asahel's second wife was Hannah M. Strickland, and their offspring are Alma L. and Alice E. (Ivison). Prof. Hayward was educated at Millville Academy, Orleans County, N, Y., Albion and Holly Academies, New York, and completed his course of studies at Beloit College, Wisconsin. He has instructed more than 4,000 students in Kentucky, many of whom have become prominent in the learned professions and in the various walks of life. He has been twice married; first May 13, 1858, to Priscilla Isabel, daughter of Mandeville and Eliza (Houseworth) Elston, of Simpsonville, Shelby County; born in 1837, of Virginia ancestry; died in 1862. Prof. Hayward married, January 18, 1863, as his second wife, Mary, daughter of Luther J. and Lucy M. (Clarkson) Talbott, of Grayson Springs, Ky., born February 14, 1840, and to them has been born one son, Wilbur Talbott Hayward, February 24, 1865. He is a student at law. During the past five years Prof. Hayward has been engaged in farming and stock raising, owning a fine farm of 500 acres of well-improved land in a good state of cultivation. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and in politics is identified with the Democratic party.

JOHN A. HAWKINS

JOHN A. HAWKINS, farmer, Ohio County, was born near Knottsville, Daviess Co., Ky., July 28, 1838, and is the seventh of fourteen children, of whom may be mentioned Dr. James D. Hawkins, a practicing physician in Old Mexico; Upton W., at Cloverport, Breckinridge County; Mrs. Lucy A. Montgomery; Mrs. Amanda Graves, residing near Owensboro, Ky.; Joseph E., in Daviess County; Abiah Chamberlain, in Daviess County. Mr. Hawkins was the son of Aaron and Elizabeth (Madox) Hawkins, the former a native of Maryland, born in 1791, and the latter of Virginia, born in 1796, and removed to Knottsville, Daviess County, in 1820. Both his maternal and paternal ancestors removed to Tennessee about 1797 or 1798. J. A. Hawkins was brought up on a farm and, December 17, 1857, was married to Miss Elizabeth P., the only child of Madison and Mary Jane (Mudd) Crisp, of Marion County, where she was born September 2, 1839, and removed to Daviess County at the age of eighteen. Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins are the parents of eleven children, seven of whom are living: Aaron M. (married Mary Tina, the eldest daughter of Albert May; they have three children), John A., James T. (deceased), Mary Jane, Francis E., Martin Commodore, Joseph Franklin (deceased), Samuel Leslie, and Ollie Hayden. Mr. Hawkins owns 246 acres of land, with good buildings and other improvements. He has acquired a good home by industry and economy, as he began with little or no money. He fills the office of overseer of roads and takes a deep interest in   matters pertaining to the best interests of the community.

Note:  John Alexander Hawkins died 28 April 1896 in Daviess County, KY.  He apparently lived in Ohio County from about 1840 until his death.  He was drafted to serve in the Civil War in July 1863 - he was age 25 at the time.  John's wife, Elizabeth, died 22 March 1910. Both are buried in the (Old) Panther Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Daviess County (near the Ohio County-Daviess County line).

MORTALITY SCHEDULES

U. S. FEDERAL CENSUS MORTALITY SCHEDULES INDEX, 1850-1880

Included in the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 U.S. censuses were mortality schedules that provided information for those who died in the twelve months prior to the enumeration. The schedule lists the deceased name, sex, age, color, whether widowed or not, place of birth, month of death, occupation, and cause of death. In 1870 the parents' birthplaces were added.

For some reason, the Mortality Schedules cannot be found for Ohio County for 1850.

1860. The 1860 Mortality Schedule for Ohio County is on seven pages and lists 215 names. The heading states that it shows “Persons who Died during the Year ending 1st June, 1860” so it apparently shows death from June 1, 1859 through June 1, 1860. I will list the 215 names below with part of the information provided (I am limited for space), starting with the first three of the seven pages – and follow with the next four pages for my next post:

Arthur Lee Leach and wife, Marna Gustine Mills

Arthur Lee Leach, son of Charles Arthur Leach and Lula Bell Arnold, was born 13 July 1896 in Horse Branch, Ohio County. Arthur Lee was the only child of this marriage as his mother died 28 Jul 1898; his father remarried Joanna Hughes and there were eight children born of the second marriage – half siblings to Arthur Lee.

Arthur Lee joined the United States Marine Corps and served 12-28-1915 to 12-27-1919. In 1922 he married Marna Gustine “Peggy” Mills from Beda, Ohio County.  Peggy had three sisters, Mrs. Tymer Westerfield, Hartford, Mrs. Thomas McQuary, Bell's Run, and Mrs. Bessie Carlisle, Detroit, Mich; and  a brother, Murray Mills of Eureka, CA. 

Arthur Lee and Peggy lived in Herrin, Williamson County, IL.  Arthur Lee worked at an ordinance factory and Peggy worked for the local newspaper, the Herrin Daily Journal. They had two sons, Arthur Lee, Jr. and Charles Jerry.  Arthur Lee, Jr. was born 7 Jan 1924 and died July 1978 in Cook County, IL, and Charles Jerry was born 29 Dec 1925 and died 20 April 1992 in Munster, Lake County, IN.


Peggy died 20 Aug 1942 and Arthur Lee died 25 Feb 1943 – both died in Herrin, IL.
