Notes for WILLIAM HAWS:
Taken From the Marshall County Republican
February 6, 1868

William Haws said: "I settled in Sagamon County, Illinois in 1821. There was about 1 dozen log houses in Springfield at that time. In 1822, I was at Peoria, where there were 3 or 4 whites living. I was also out on Mackinaw and where Bloomington now stands but saw no whites. In 1823, a Mr. Walker established a mission among the Indians at Ottawa. In 1826, I explored Putnam County and settled near where Magnolia now stands. I took a man by the name of Lapsley to look at La Salle and he was the first man that sold good there. In March 1827, Steven and James Willis stayed with me when looking at the county. The same year, I went to the lead mines and returned in 1828 and found that a number of families had come in since I left. In 1831, the commissioners met at my house to locate the county seat of Putnam county."

FIRST SETTLEMENT OF PUTNAM COUNTY
Our first settler Capt. Wm. Haws, was born in Orange county, Virginia, September 25, 1800. His father emigrated to Ohio in 1805. William, who was always noted for his honesty, economy and Industry, when he was 21, came to Sangamon county, and in November 1826, moved up and made the first settlement in Putnam county.

CAPTAIN HAWS
This venerable pioneer of Illinois passed away yesterday suddenly. He was seated at the dinner table, at his residence in Magnolia, Putnam Co., and had partaken of a hearty dinner, when suddenly his head dropped, there was a shudder and before the family, who were alarmed and jumped to his assistance, could get him to the bed he was dead. CAPT. WILLIAM HAWS was born in Orange county, VA. Sept. 23, 1800. He lived with his parents in Ohio until the age of 21; August 27, 1821, removed to Sangamon County, ILL., removing thence to his present residence in Putnam County, thence to Tazewell in 1826.

He built the first log cabin between Ottawa and Washington. There were no white people then in that part of the country except a few Indian traders. Putnam county was organized at his house in 1831. He was one of the first grand jurors at the first term of court, which was held at the old trading house near Hennepin. Gov. Ford was then prosecuting attorney of the district. He was Captain in the Black Hawk war of a company of state militia, as also took charge of a caravan going to Oregon in 1847. He has led a long and active life, having dug lead in Galena, gold in California and silver in Mexico. He owns nearly 20000 acres of land in Putnam and Marshall counties, a half section in Minnesota, most of it under cultivation. A kind wife and a number of sons and daughters survive the husband and father.

Vivan Haws and Kate Smith was married on the 26th, Monday evening. It was one of the grandest affairs of the season. They received a number of nice presents, all of which were useful. The bride was handsomely attired in broze green silk, with a wreath of wax buds from the throat to the waist, long white vail, white kid gloves and a pale blue ribbon on the head. The groom wore a neat black suit, white tie, black kid gloves and a button hole boquet of waxbud which looked very nice. They will move to the farm across the road from Mr. Smith in a short time. We wish them a long, happy and prosperous life.
