Information on Hannah Hawes
Hannah Hawes was the daughter of Henry Hawes and Sarah Dyer, daughter of Roger Dyer and his wife Hannah. Sarah was kidnapped by the Indians during the Fort Seybert massacre in April 1758 and did not return home for several years. Hannah's father died or was killed between her birth and the date of the massacre. It is assumed, based on a court document of May 1758 that she lived with the Dyer family until she married George Cowger about 1777. After George died she married Jacob Trumbo about 1790 and lived in Brock gap. She is buried in the May cemetery. Following the massacre in 1758, Matthew Patton became guardian of Hannah, court records for May 15, 1758 show that Matthew being appointed guardian.
