Hi... first of all, i think your marriage date is goofy, since Sarah couldn't have married before she was born <grin>... i show marriage on Apr 11, 1849 here in Montgomery Co, Ohio...

I show six kids.... don't seem to have many dates for them... although possible i have info at home i haven't entered since this is not in my direct line...

Winfield Scott b 1/24/1850 d 11/3/1916 m. Nancy Alzina Black b 6/3/1960 d. 7/13/1901 (they had seven kids).. off the top of my head i think Winfield was the one who owned a coal company on Dayton's west side....
Bertels b 1857 d 5/4/1884

i don't know who Sarah's parents were....

John was son of David Hawthorn b dec 1793, Newark NJ d 1/12/1855 and Cassandra Jennings d 8/17/1839 they married 12/30/1817 in Montgomery Co Ohio... had four kids...

William 1820-1875
John (who married Sarah Bertels)
Sarah A. 1827-1877 m. David Bartholomew Van Tuyl
Henry Jennings 1833-1860

David remarried in 1841... second wife was Elizabeth Misner... they had four more kids...

Mary Frances
Samuel 1843-1864
Casander 1845-1851
Rebecca 1848-1900

my interest here is in Sarah A. who married David Van Tuyl... he was my 1st cousin 4x removed... plus his uncle Henry Van Tuyl married Rebecca Jennings... haven't found her parents... but suspect she's related to the Hawthorn's in some manner...

a great number of these guys are buried at Woodland Cemetery here in Dayton Ohio....

there is, by the way, a small Hawthorn book at the Dayton Metro Library... maybe about 20-30 pages or so... i don't generally look at this message board... but was glancing at the Hawthorn book a couple nights ago and just happened to jump over here...

oh... almost forgot... the street the Wright Brothers lived on was Hawthorn street... and the mansion they built later is called Hawthorn Hill... it's my belief that Hawthorn street was named after the family of Sarah A. Hawthorn... as her husband's uncle, Henry Van Tuyl, platted the land in that neighborhood and one street was named Van Tuyl, another Hawthorn... both Henry and David Van Tuyl were doctors by the way....

i can send more detail from home if you're interested....

email me at
