About Janet Bryan Hawkins


Janet Bryan Hogg was born 1852 in Raleigh, Wake County, NC the 2nd of 3 known surviving children (all daughters) born to prominent physician and businessman, Dr. Thomas Devereaux Dortch and his wife, Janet Bryan.

She was the paternal grandchild of Gavin Hogg, born in Scotland, and his (1st) wife Mary Ann Bayard Johnson; and gr-grandchild of James Hogg & Mary Finlayson of Wick, Caithness, Scotland who immigrated to Wilmington, NC about 1757. On her mother's side, she was the maternal grandchild of John Stevens Bryan Sr. & Lucy Davis Haywood, a wealthy merchant and planter.

Janet was just 3 years old when her mother died in 1855. Her 32-year old widowed father never remarried and raised his daughters on his own, with Sally eventually taking the lead in mothering the younger children.

Janet married Colin McKenzie Hawkins in about 1881 when she was around 29 years old, and he about 35. The marriage was childless. The couple resided in Raleigh all their married years with Colin was a successful stockbroker.

Janet was widowed in 1914 when her husband passed at age 67. She survived him almost 14 years, passing in 1928 at age 76.
