Note: ohn came to America in 1811. She agrees on the date of the marriage. But if she's right about the immigration date, the marriage took place in N. Ireland. * * * History of Butler Co., PA, R. C. Brown & Co., 1895, "Biographical Sketches", p1100 John Hazlett was born in County Down, Ireland, August 12, 1783. At the age of twenty-eight, he came to America, and settled in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. On the 12th of May, 1806, he was married to Mary Campbell, who came to this county a year or two before her husband. In 1828, they removed to the town of Allegheny, Allegheny county, and soon afterwards to a farm near the site of Evans City, Butler county, now owned by James SUTTON and Joseph ASH. Mr. Hazlett subsequently removed to Allegheny City, where he established the first white lead works west of the Allegheny Mountains. In 1844, these works were incorporated under the firm style of FAHNESTOCK, HAZLETT, and SCHWARTZ, which later became SCHWARTZ and HAZLETT, but are now known as the Pennsylvania Lead Works. Mr. Hazlett died March 9, 1869, aged eighty-seven years, at the residence of his son John, in Allegheny City. His wife died April 10, 1824. Their family consisted of ten children as follows: The two oldest who died in infancy: MARY; ROBERT, deceased; MARTHA, who is in her eighty-fourth year and resides in Wilkinsburg; ANNABELL, deceased; SARAH, a resident of LeClair, Iowa; RACHEL; JOHN, and JOSEPH, the last deceased. -taken from the 1895 book The History of Butler County [Note that this implies Mary came to Lancaster Co.. by 1804 (which seems likely). But if they were married in 1806, John would have been not quite 23 at the time of marriage, so he could not have been 28 when he immigrated.-wbt] * * *
