    David Hawk, born on 5 Oct 1824, was the eldest of nine children born to Louis and Eva Hawk in Northhampton County, Pennsylvania. In. 1834 the family moved to Seneca County, Ohio, where the father purchased a 40 acre farm near West Lodie and set up his blacksmith shop and began clearing the land. Nine years later, in 1843, the father died at the early age of only 41.

    David had now reached the age of 19 and with the help of neighbors, he managed to learn his father's blacksmith trade.

    David first married Mary Ann Swick and to this union was born one son, Franklin, who is the grandfather of Robert Hawk of Leiters Ford. After a few short years David was bereft of his wife.

    In 1855 he married Catherine Filar. When their eldest child, Sarah was bout three years old, they moved westward by wagon from Seneca County, Ohio. to Perry twp Allen County, Indiana and set up housekeeping on a farm. After living there a little more than a year, they moved still farther westward and settled in Marshall County, on the west side of what is now known as Hawk Lake south of Culver; the Hawk Homestead . Here four sons were born: David Jr., Edwin, John and Rollen.

    Here David set up his blacksmith shop, shoeing oxen as well as horsed and mules. By hard work and strict economy, David and Catherine were able to provide each of their children with a farm of 80 acres near the old homestead. Here in 1908 David died at the age of 84. Catherine died in 1927.

    Rollen Hawk being the youngest child, received the homestead farm. He was born in 1879, and in 1902 he married Elizabeth Kline, who was his partner for over 56 years. Rollen did custom work for many years, operating a threshing machine with a steam engine. He also did custom silo filling, corn shredding, clover h ulling, and wood buzzing, in addition to his farming.

    One child Veenice, was born to Rollen and Elizabeth Hawk. She graduated from Culver High School in 1931, having spent all 12 years in the same school system. In. 1935 she graduated from Manchester College as a business education and math teacher. Her first job was at Tyner High School with a salary of $1,000.

    In 1940 she married Lawrence White, an ordained minister in the former Evangelical Church. To this union two children were born: Joyce Elaine and Larry David, both of whom graduated from Indiana Central College.

    Joyce became an elementary teacher and taught third grade at Greenwood until her death in 1966.

    In 1970 Larry married Debra Henderson. They have two daughter, Tammie Lynn and Tina Renee, and now reside in Pensacola, Florida where Larry is a computer chemical analyst.

    In 1960 Elizabeth Hawk passed away at the age of 79.

    Veenice and her family then came to live with her father, Rollen, on the homestead farm.

    Rollen died in 1963 at the age of 83.

    Veenice and Lawrence White are still living on the Hawk Homestead Farm - Mrs. Lawrence White.

            Born in Rochester's Woodlawn Hospital, on Dec. 28, 1957, Randy E. Hawk was the son of Robert Eugene and Esther Jean Waltz Hawk. Growing up he shared his childhood with his little sister Becky. During his years at Culver Community High School, Randy played the trumpet in the band and he enjoyed intramural basketball league. His love of music was a lifelong passion, as each summer he looked forward to playing his trumpet and joining the Summer Stage Band. In 1976 with great Cavalier pride, he graduated with his class. During his youth he acquired a steady work ethic and vast knowledge of diesel maintenance and repair from his dad and spending many hours at the garage. It was June 29, 1991, on the sparkling waters of Lake Maxinkuckee, the sun shone brightly when Randy married his best friend and the love of his life Janice Borer. Together they raised three handsome sons Joe, Kevin and Brian. The family tree grew with the added blessings of two grandsons Braxton and Jaxon. Randy adored his sons, nephews, nieces and grandsons. He was always there for them, sharing a common sense approach to life and life's lessons, influencing them as a wonderful role model during their formative years. In addition to the diesel engine work Randy, specialized in building custom Minneapolis-Moline irrigation engines for many area farmers. Randy also was a successful sales representative for the AgVenture/McKillip Seed Company. He owned a unique collection of M-M scale tractors and enjoyed the sport of tractor pulling, attending events all over Indiana and Illinois. As an armchair athlete, Randy loved NASCAR, especially Tony Stewart and Dale Jr., drag racing and cheering for the Indianapolis Colts.

He was an active member of the Leiters Ford Merchant's Association, the Fulton County Historical Power Association, Richland Center Tractor Pullers and the Richland Center IOOF Lodge no. 435. Remembered for his love of mowing grass, it was Randy's tradition to head off to Culver's Original Root Beer Stand for an ice cold root beer after mowing the Hawk farm. An accomplished grill master, Randy's specialties were brats, burgers and steaks; always grilling them in large quantities. He and Janice hosted the annual family fish fry. Randy was known for his generous support of his communities, local business and youth, especially 4-H and the Culver youth sports l eagues. Greeting him at home after work each evening were his black labs Jake and Daisy. He and Jake had a routine to play some ball, just to unwind. An annual tradition was planting his coveted soybean plant. Randy nurtured it and watered it adding the correct amounts of fertilizer to enhance the plant growth. Then suddenly one summer, someone pointed out that his treasured soybean was instead a moon flower. He and Janice enjoyed eating out. Their favorite vacation destinations were Florida and Branson, Mo.

            Randy is lovingly remembered by his wife Janice, at home; three sons, Joe Jimenez, Rochester, Kevin Jimenez and wife Jordan of Peru, Brian Jimenez and wife Shawna, Zionsville; two grandsons, Braxton and Jaxon Jimenez, of Peru, and a sister Becky Beatty of Rochester.

      5 David Jr., Hawk born April 9, 1864 d. April 16, 1899; buried Culver Masonic Cemetery
        BY HIS OWN HAND
        In a sudden fit of insanity,
        David Hawk, Jr. shoots himself four times
        with a revolver and dies in about one hour.,br> The whole community shocked and sorrowful.


        Our citizens were greatly shocked last Sunday morning to hear that David Hawk, Jr., who lived about three-quarters of a mile south of Culver , was dead from the result of shots fired from a revolver by his own hands, and scarcely any person could believe that such an occurrence had really happened.

        Almost everyone in town and vicinity visited the premises where the awful deed was committed to see for themselves and be convinced. Coroner, Dr. Sarber, of Argos, was notified and that gentleman was soon on his way to hold an inquest according to law.

        At the house, the agonizing grief of the family and relatives over the terrible calamity, caused the tears to flow from the eyes of many.

        The evidence given at the inquest brought out the following facts:

        David, as was his usual custom had arisen about 6 o’clock a.m. and went to the barn to care for his stock and about 7:30 came to the house for breakfast. At breakfast he told his wife to be ready in time to go to Sabbath school and to have the children ready. After breakfast he went out to the barn to finish his chores and about 8:45 came to the house, sat down and handing his pocketbook to one of his children and told her to take out all the pennies they needed and then left it lying upon the table. His wife seeing that he did not begin to get ready, inquired if he was not going to Sabbath school, he answering that he did not feel well and would not go. His wife said that if he did not wish to go she would go and take the children and asked him to get the team ready which he consented to do, and then left the house for the barn, placed the harness upon the horses and ran the carriage out.

        Mrs. Katie Hawk his mother, was coming past the barnyard when she heard two noises which sounded like two boards were being struck together and something that sounded like moaning. While the mother was in the yard, Dave’s wife came out of the house and went to the barn to see if there was any trouble. Not finding him at the barn, she passed around to a cow or sheep shed where there were sick animals. Instantly the wife came running out of the cow stable stricken with horror, exclaiming, “Dave has shot himself.” Both women then returned to the scene, and Mrs. Katie Hawk made a frantic appeal for her son to speak to her, but received no reply.

        Word was sent to the neighbors who hurried to the scene as soon as possible, others bringing needed medical assistance. David was tenderly conveyed to the house, Dr. Wiseman halting them on the way to make a superficial examination to look for hemorage and finding but very little, directed them to carry him on to the house, and placed him upon a lounge. The physician found his pulse weak, the heart sounds almost inaudible and the respiration obstructed. A small amount of chloroform was administered. Dr. Rea and Dr. Hollister were also summoned, but when they arrived the man was dead.


        The Coroner’s examination of the body proved that four shots had been fired, two in the chest and two in the base of the right ear. The two in the chest were in the lower third about an inch to the right of the median line, and one had struck the sixth rib and passed downward and the other had struck the fifth rib and passed upward penetrating the extreme right of the chest, neither striking the heart. The two shots in the head: One had struck the lower portion of the temporal bone, seemingly passing upward while the other was indeterminate.

        David Hawk, Jr., was born April 9, 1864, and departed this life April 16, 1899, aged 35 years, and 7 days.

        Being the son of christian parents he was consecrated to the Lord in holy baptism in his infancy; and at an early age he assumed in his own name the sacred vows made by his parents at his baptism, thus becoming a communicant member of the Reformed church, with which he remained a member until his death.

        He was united in marriage with Miss Carrie Burkett December 22, 1887, to which union four children were given, one of which preceded them on the other shore.

        He leaves his companion, 3 children, his aged parents, 4 brothers, one sister and many other relatives to mourn their loss.

        May the Lord sustain and comfort them all in this sad bereavement.”

        Funeral services were held at the Reformed church on Tuesday at 10 o’clock a.m., Rev. Barber officiating. The church and gallery were literally packed with people, while a hundred or more filled the entrance and remained upon the outside, and over four hundred people viewed the remains.

        Rev. Barber took his text from the 27th chapter of Proverbs, 1st verse. He prefaced his sermon with timely remarks concerning the motive of the deplorable act on the part of the deceased, and cautioned his hearers against rendering harsh judgment against the living or dead, as God, who doeth all things well, only knows the cause. The Rev. gentleman intimated and “justly so” that the living mourners nearest and dearest to the departed, had enough to bear without being subjected to the criticism and unjust accusations. The sermon was f ull of God’s forgiving love toward all erring humanity, which was a great solace to the deeply bereaved relatives and friends. The services were heart-rendering in the extreme, and there were but few dry eyes in the church. The remains were buried in Culver cemetery.

        David Hawk, Jr., was an honest and exemplary farmer and highly respected by all who knew him. He was in good financial circumstances, his family relations were all that could be wished, and what led him to commit self-destruction can never be known and will remain in the possession of himself and his God. The bereaved family receives the sympathy of the entire community, and all that is possible is being done to comfort them.
