* Rhinehart, Willyard, Hawley & Timms of Portage County Ohio*

Updated October 11, 2004

This is a work in progress and is by no means complete. Please let me know if you have additions or corrections.

If you copy this information on to your own site, you could be responsible for passing along information that could be inaccurate. I try to make sure that my information is accurate, but I have been known to make a mistake or two here and there! Please check with me before you do that!

Sources are available for most of the information given here. Please contact me if you want more information.

NOTE: Much of the information from the Hawley family that I have comes from the internet and other unverified information. The information from about 1800 to the present (from the time the Hawleys moved to Ohio) is mostly my research and is more reliable.
