Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please feel free to use any of the information I have posted on this website including photographs.

I will transfer memorials to anyone with a closer relationship or greater interest in any of the memorials that I manage. I appreciate receiving corrections and information which I'm happy to add.

If you have photos related to any of these memorials, please add them - and drop me a line to let me know - as far as I can tell, findagrave doesn't have a feature to let you know when someone has added anything to a memorial you manage, it would be nice if they did.

I'm interested in many families including: Speckman, Brogan, Smith - all from Ireland; Hake originally Höck from Germany; Spaulding, Beach, Doolittle and Prescott along with many other early New England families and Icelanders in and out of Iceland.

RE: Olive Vera Hake
Thank you for the information about Jenny May! I'm really pleased that all my great grandpa's siblings are accounted for.

RE: Olive Vera Hake
p.s. In the 1920 Census they are listed with the last name of Fox (?) in Hoquiam. But I'm pretty sure it is them because she lists her parents as being born in Wisconsin and Sweden. Charles and Olive with daughter Jeanette.
However, I have the Ashland newspaper wedding announcement that says his name was Crouch as well as those death records for the two children that also say that, so I don't know what is going on with that.
I found a statement in the Oct 22, 1923 Medford Mail Tribune that C.C. Crouch and Olive Hake Crouch were filing for divorce, in the Circuit Court listings.

I just searched 1930 using her daughter Jeanette to search and found that by that year Olive was married to a James Knapp and living in Ashland.

In 1940 I find an Olive V married to George Allen and living in Wallace, Idaho with a place of residence in 1935 listed as Ashland, Oregon. I can't be certain that one is her though, but it's possible. At any rate, there is an Idaho death index listing this couple as divorcing Feb 1, 1952 (Olive Vera Allen and George Tyner Allen).

So I guess she was married 3, possibly 4, times.

RE: Olive Vera Hake
That's great!

I have seen on familysearch Washington death index records for two children of Charles C Crouch and Olive Hake (Charles Aug 17, 1917 and Grace Aug 4, 1920, both in Hoquiam, Washington). But so far I haven't found any burial records for either of those children or Charles himself.

Olive Vera Hake
Hi, just commenting that I saw in Hannah Hake's obit that Olive Vera had a 2nd married name of Samuelson and was living in Wolf Creek. So I found her findagrave page and asked them to link it to her parents.

Thank you so much for catching my serious error concerning Christina Sassaman. Can't believe I did that.

RE: Solomon Hake
Thanks again, Bob! I have not linked any branches off of Samuel Hake, father of Solomon, but good to know. I had found them back when I started looking for Hake ancestors that they were in Trumbull county, Ohio. Looks like there were quite a few in that vicinity.

Have a blessed day! ~ Cheryl

RE: Solomon Hake
Thank you, Bob, for your reply & info on the Hake family. If I remember correctly, I was in contact with you about 10 years ago or so when I was doing some research on this family, so thanks again.
