Let me summarize the little I know about the Hawthorns.

I have William Hawthorn being married to Margaret Carr. I believe I got the "Carr" from their daughter's death certificate. It said that Margaret Carr was born "East of the mountains".

I have them in the 1850 census in Perry Township, Jefferson Co, PA.:
William Hawthorn age 34, farmer, born in Ireland
Margaret Hawthorn, age 25, born in PA
James Hawthorn, age 2
John H Hawthorn, age 1/12

In the 1860 census, in Oliver Township, jefferson Co, PA:
William Hawthorn, age 45, farmer
Margaret hawthorn, age 35
James L. Hawthorn, age 12
Mary Ann Hawthorn, age 7
Martha Jane Hawthorn, age 4
William A. Hawthorn, age 2

I have the 1870 and 1880 census on order

Mary Ann Hawthorn had a daughter Florence Mae McGee (or McKee) in 1877. I haven't discovered the father yet.

In 1880 Mary Ann married Levi Swab. I have their children as Ada Swab Smith, ida A. Swab Park and Walter A. Swab. Levi had some children prior to marrying Mary Ann and I do not know if any of these were from his previous marriage.

There is an obituary for William A. Hawthorne on the Jefferson County obituary board. He died Dec 3 1919. It says he was the son of William Hawthorn and born in Oliver Township.

I am a descendant of FLorence Mae McGee's.

Let me know if you have more...I can fill you in on this branch if you'd like it and we're sure there's a connection
