Two questions..

Will flowering quince graft to hawthorn? 

Also, when 'they' say hawthorn and pear/quince are graft-compatable, are they speaking of the common European single-seed hawthorn, or generally most hawthorns, including US natives like C. crus-gallis, etc.?

Some schoolbooks tell that medlar is compatibel with hawthorn as rootstock. 
Years ago I tryed it. First year was everything in order. But in the second 
years the medlar grow slowed down. May be the widespread hawthorn in my location 

is a special one. Then I grafted first quince on the hawthorn rootstock and on 
the quince I put the medlar. The gained medlar plants are rich fruiting many 

Quince grows and fruits well on hawthorn. And with quince intermediate peace 
some pears cultivars would grow. And over the compatible pear  cultivars may be 
grafted everyone other pear. 

Wishing good luck,
