On April 13, 1837, George, Jane and 9 children received a certificate to transfer their membership from Fairfield to Westfield Monthly Meeting in Hamilton County, Indiana where they were all received on September 7, 1837.

George is listed on the 1840 census for Jackson Township, Hamilton County. Indiana living next to his son in law Jesse Mendenhall. (Jesse’s wife was Phoebe Rebecca Haworth and one of their sons was William Riley Mendenhall father of Ida Jane.) George and Jane are also listed on the 1850 census for Jackson Township. In 1850, Hinkle Creek Monthly Meeting was set off from Westfield Monthly Meeting.

You may remember that the above refers to George and Jane Thornburg Haworth, the above land grant is for their property in Hamilton County, Indiana. If you happen to have a range map for Jackson Township, you can find the exact spot where their property was located.
