Susan E Hawkins of Minneapolis Minnesota


1/9 plate Daguerreotype

The 1857 Minnesota State Census shows a Susan E. Hawkins, age 20, living in Minneapolis. She was born in New Hampshire. Her parents were Leonard, age 58, and Olivia, 52. Interestingly, the 1880 U.S. Census for Minnesota shows this same Susan Hawkins still living in Minneapolis but now with the married name of Susan Chowen ( husband George W. Chowen). She was then 42 years old, with three children, and her mother Olivia was living with them. Find A Grave shows that Susan Chowen died October 8, 1924. She and her husband, George, are buried in Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis
