Birth: 1779
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Apr. 9, 1874
York County
Maine, USA

Her death date is actually burial date. She was 90 years old.

She was the daughter of Lindsey JOSSELYN and Susan WELCH.

Also note, from a message that was posted a few years back on a board, I believe that I have found out Lindsey Joslin/Josselyn's parentage: Jabez Joslin & Mary Lindsey. Here is that message:

"In the 1850 census at Buffalo, in addition to Alanson, there was an Alvin Joslyn b. abt. 1790 in VT. This Alvin is probably the son of Lindsey Joslin/Susan Welch, said to be b. abt. 1790 in Poultney, Rutland, VT. (Lindsey was son of Jabez Joslin and Mary Lindsey. Many of the Joslins born in VT at about the right time were children of Lindsey or of one of his brothers, and many of this line moved into NY State, to Batavia, Genesee, NY and vicinity. Alvin was in Warsaw, Genesee, NY in the 1840 census.) I have no concrete information on this, but an educated guess would be that your Alanson, Azuba and Alzada were siblings of Alvin (which also starts with an A)."

I have found Lindsey Joslin/Josselyn's findagrave memorial. However, I still do not know where Susan Welch is buried. Here at least is Sarah's father's memorial:

Lindsey Joslin

Sarah married Abel Hawkins on 27-Nov-1808. Abel died 28-Sep-1831 in West Haven,Rutland Co.,VT. We do not have a burial location for Abel.

Soon after his death she moved to Maine to live with her daughter Phoebe J (Hawkins) Skinner.

Her daughter and son-in-law have headstones. Unfortunately, she does not. UPDATE: In the summer of 2014, my first cousin visited the cemetery and found her headstone! Way to go Andrew!

Offspring of Abel & Sarah (Josselyn) Hawkins
1: Birth dates don't quite match up from
my two sources, so I listed both birth dates.
2: Birth location is Castleton, Rutland Co, Vermont for all of them.)


A) Abel Merit Hawkins.
    (18-Nov-1809 - Kathleen)
    (03-Nov-1809 – Mary Jane)

    (01-Jan-1812 – Mary Jane)

D) William Franklin Hawkins
    (06-March-1816 – Kathleen)
    (1816 – Mary Jane)
    Web info indicates that he moved sometime
    and lived in Vermontville, Eaton County, Michigan.
    The 1850 census has him in a different family
    group, but in the same household as his older
    brother Moses L Hawkins. He also married
    Helen S. RICE in Vermontville in 1851.
    It is believed he earlier married Ann Clark.

E) Joseph Newell Hawkins

    (Mary Jane does not have her.)
    Could she be Phoebe???

I) Phebe Jane (Hawkins) Skinner.
    (Kathleen does not have her.)
    (1828 – Mary Jane)
    (Cemetery has buried 1-Jan-1881, 64 years old
    – that would put her born in 1817)
