Genealogies of Long Island Families a collection of genealogies relating to the following Long Island Families: Disckerson, Mitchill, Wickham, Carman, Raynor, Rushmore, Satterly, Hawkins, Arthur Smith, Mills, Howard, Lush, Greene. Compiled by Charles J. Werner mainly from records left by Benjamin F. Thompson Historian of Long Island Published by Charles J. Werner New York, NY 1919

He signed the Town of Brookhaven (Middle Island, Fourth Company Limits) Association of 8 June 1775, witnessed by Ebenezer Dayton, clerk. His son Zachariah and Nathaniel refused to sign. He was on the list of Associators sent to Col. Nathaniel Woodhull on 17 Aug 1775 by Richard Woodhull and Samuel Thompson, Committeemen.

Ralph Clymer Hawkins Notes: "Zachariah settled at Oak Island on the Smith Patent, east of Yaphank, and north of where now is the L.I.R.R. on the road [old Upton Rd.] to [the] site of Camp Upton [now Brookhaven National Laboratory]. Later he moved into the Glover house further south on the same property, just east of Carman's Mill, on the east side of Carman River, north of the railroad at South Haven. Just south of the railroad on the east side of the river was Zach's Landing, named after this Zachariah Hawkins, probably because it was from here that he shipped to New York City the cord wood that he cut nearby, there being an inlet at this time from the ocean to the bay just west of Smith's Point [now called Old Inlet]. It was also probably near this landing in the woody swamp by the river that Zachariah hid the horses and cattle of General John Smith during the American Revolution to prevent their capture by the British. Zachariah had been placed in charge of the General's extensive property at Smith's Point at St. George's Manor or Tangier.

In 1796 he was living again at Oak Island according to the will of William Smith of the Manor of St. George at Smith's Point. In addition to furthering the efforts of General Smith during the Revolution, Zachariah as a patriot signed the Association Papers June 8, 1775, and again in May, 1776.

He died about 1800 on the Smith property at South Haven and letters of administration of his estate were granted May 5, 1800, to his son Nathaniel and his grandson Zachariah Hawkins."

[For the purposes of this "Brookhaven/South Haven Hamlet" volume, he would not have lived in the Hamlets, but on the east side of the Carmen's River, which would now be in the area we call Shirley, then known as part of the original Manor of St. George/Smith patent. His specific home site is now incorporated into the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge.] -------------------- http://www.longislandsurnames.com/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I0058&tree=Appleby
