Patti, first let me advise you that I'm writing this without benefit of my records. I have struggled for years trying to separate what I think is your Hawthornes from mine. There was a Hawthorn family that arrived in NY in either the late 1700s or early 1800s and for some reason traveled by wagon train to the Old 96th District in South Carolina. (Mine arrived in the same area from Ireland in 1772) I understand that your group were members of a group of ARP Presbyterians that were very opposed to slavery and as a result left SC in about 1815 with their preacher, the Rev. Porter, along with a large percentage of the congregation to found another church (Hopewell Church) and settlement in Preble County. Ohio. If you will drop me a line privately Iíll provide you with the e-mail address of people that will be able to expand on the above as well as provide you with more detailed info on those Hawthornes that settled there. Fred Hawthorne
