From Hardin Co. OH 1883 History by Beers, "JOSIAH HAWN, farmer, P. O. Kenton, was born April 28, 1837, in Union County, this State, and is a son of John W. and Charlotte (McNier) Hawn, the former a native of Virginia and of English descent, the latter a native of Pennsylvania. The subject of this sketch was educated at the common schools of Union County and has followed the occupation of a farmer. He was married, July 22, 1857, to Sarah Wiggle, born June 3, 1838, in Union County, and a daughter of Thomas and Phebe (Oralhood) Wiggle. This union has resulted in six children, viz., Matilda (deceased), John W. (deceased). Thomas, Phebe. and Sarah L., the wife of William Kelly; and Florence, wife of William Madora. In politics, Mr. Hawn is a Republican, and is a useful citizen of Dudley Township."

Thomas and Phebe are found in Union Co., Ohio, in 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860 censuses. In 1870 Thomas only is found with both Robert "Waggle" and Michael Wigle census. (Michael is Robert's 3rd son). Thomas probably died before 1880. Phoebe probably died before 1870.
