History of Charles Hawkins Born 1845

Contributor: Robbhaas Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

History of Charles Hawkins Born 26, June 1845 Written by Lois Hawkins Wright (Nov 15, 1963) This is the history of Charles Hawkins, the father of Charles Eli Hawkins, which is my grandfather. William Aucock and his wife, Rhoda Brewer, lived at Saint Mary Newington England. They purchased a small place of business from a man named Hawkins, and as the business was thriving at the time and it rather being the custom to keep trade, they changed their name from Aucock to Hawkins, which their posterity has been called to this day. In 1814 James Richard Hawkins was born to William Aucock and Rhoda Brewster. He married Charlotte Hempster, and two sons were born to them, James R. Jr. born 19, Sept. 1833 and John born 16, Aug. 1838. Charlotte died and James married Ann Sewell, who was a daughter of Francis Sewell and Hannah Davey and born at Norfolk, England 25 march 1821. Their children were William Edward born in England 31 Jan 1844, Charles was born 26 June 1845 at Reddington, England. Susannah born 8 March 1847 and Joseph born 8 Sept. 1849 also in England. About this time James R. and family heard the gospel through missionaries in England. They embraced it and were baptized at Islington by Elder Shorten. They came to America soon after leaving friends and everything behind for religious sake. Upon arriving in America, they found that the saints were all moving west so they followed them crossing the plains with hand carts. The mother had given away all her baby cloths in England thinking that she would have no more children, but while on the plains a baby boy was born to her, her bed being in a hand cart. He was born 4 Aug. 1853 and they named him Eli Brazee. They came on to Utah, moving to Tooele for a while and then back to Wellsville. James was the first Superintendent of the Sunday School in Wellsville, holding the office from 1859 to 1863 when he died 31 July 1863 at 49 years of age. Ann lived with their son Eli until her death in 1890. She was very active and spry old lady right up to her death. She enjoyed doing hand work and took two prizes at the State fair upon exhibiting a hand made quilt and rug. My great-grandfather Charles, after moving from Tooele back to Wellsville with his parents, went with a few other back across the plains to get a party of emigrants. It proved to be a very hard journey. He drove and ox team across and because of the heavy load on the wagon, he was obliged to walk all the way. When he returned his shoes were all gone and the stones had cut his feet leaving blood stains on the road for miles. In the fall of 1865 Charles married Susan Sophia Jenkins, born 12 Oct 1845. Their children were Mary Eliza, twin boys William Edward and James Richard, Ann, Charles Eli, and Elijah Daniel. The twins died within a week of each other, when they were 11 years old, with diphtheria. That was the longest they were ever separated from each other. Mary Eliza died soon after. In 1874 Charles and Susan moved to Payson and then to Benjamin, Utah. He was called to be in the Young Men’s MIA presidency. Then he was placed as the first counselor to O.H. Warner in the Sunday School. He was President of the Elders having been made an Elder in 1865 in the Salt Lake City Endowment House. He was the first man to settle north of the Benjamin Corner. He settled in the greasewoods about two miles northwest of the present center of town. While living here he served a term in the penitentiary for practicing polygamy. After the death of his first wife in November 1890 he married Kate B. Simons at the Manti Temple. In 1892 he moved back to Payson and took of the labors as counselor to Arch Heins in the YMMIA working diligently for the advancement of the young people. Also counselor to Joseph McClellan in the Elder Quorum. He was a choir member for sixteen years, a teacher in Sunday School, assistant religion class superintendent and a High Priest. About two years before his death, he was working in a mine out on the desert. He was taken very ill with gall stones. There was no help near, so Walter Ludlow brought him in a wagon the distance of over a hundred miles to a doctor. He was operated on but the operation did not prove successful and he lingered with pain and poor health for two years. He then was operated on again but never recovered, dying 21 August 1912.

Life timeline of Susan S Hawkins

Susan S Hawkins was born in 1845
Susan S Hawkins was 14 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Susan S Hawkins was 17 years old when U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the freedom of all slaves in Confederate territory by January 1, 1863. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Susan S Hawkins was 32 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Susan S Hawkins was 38 years old when Krakatoa begins to erupt; the volcano explodes three months later, killing more than 36,000 people. Krakatoa, or Krakatau, is a volcanic island situated in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in the Indonesian province of Lampung. The name is also used for the surrounding island group comprising the remnants of a much larger island of three volcanic peaks which was obliterated in a cataclysmic 1883 eruption.
