Hawkesville (Ontario, Canada)
Hawkesville, a village in Waterloo County, Ontario, situated five miles northwest of St. Jacobs. The St. Jacobs Mennonite (Mennonite Church) congregation undertook an outpost Sunday school here about 1930. For three years the enrollment held between 30 and 44. The Ontario Mennonite Conference assigned ministers to fill preaching appointments until local interest was lost due to activity of a Brethren group. About 15 years later the Mennonite Conference through the St. Jacobs congregation purchased a church in the village and organized a congregation. The membership in 1953 was 120, the minister Paul Martin, and the deacon Oscar Snyder.
