Hawkins family & Woodlawn Cemetery look-up PLEASE!
Posted by: Juanita Atwood (ID *****1133) Date: August 24, 2007 at 12:54:08

I found a brief cemetery listing online which listed Thobern Hawkins & (wife) Nora Hawkins in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Norwalk, Huron Co., OH -- It says they are on page 643 in the cemetery book. Seeing this is an apparently heavy cemetery volume and I live out-of-state, I am hoping someone who has access to the book will do a look-up of these two individuals for me and tell me what information is included in their listing. The cemetery book's brief listings were at the following url:

http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/oh/huron/Hur_cem.htm

I am also trying to find the marriage record for Thobern Hawkins and Nora V. Padgett. I believe Thobern was born in Knox County, OH. He and Nora are buried in Norwalk though and his death record indicates he was a farmer. Can anyone look up their marriage records in Huron County?

The other information which I am trying to confirm relates to Thobern and Nora's children: Jerry Padgett Hawkins and Juanita Hawkins. (Juanita may have used Padgett as her middle name, too. Of that, I am not sure.) I do not know much about these children and the search seems a bit of a dead end. Either of them could possibly still be alive -- though I do not know their birth years. Juanita may have married Charley Anast according to some information shared with me.

While searching for further information on Hawkins, I encountered some details about the Woodlawn Cemetery in Norwalk. The description indicated there were some famous Ohioans buried there. There was a little map showing a lake beside the cemetery. I was thinking it must be an exceptionally pretty setting. Since I am not a native to that area -- Is it one of the more "prestigious" cemeteries in the county??

This is my husband's genealogical roots which I am researching here. Thank you to any and all who can assist us.
