The ancestors of Jonathan Hawks, born 1790 Maine to Sullivan Co., N.Y. were obtained from the book, "Adam Hawkes of Saugus, MA 1605-1672," by Ethel Farrington Smith of the Adam Hawkes Family Association, a copy of which I own. Visit the link to the Descendants of Adam Hawkes for more history.

The connection to Jonathan Hawkes who married Rachel Sprague and later, Mary, mother of Jonathan, was harder to aquire and to my knowledge, is still built on compelling circumstantial evidence. Based on the family history sketched by G. Tracey Roberts, given above, and the recollections of my grandmother, Elizabeth Catherine Deterick, great-granddaughter of Jonathan Hawks b. 1790, I believe I have the right family.
