Death: May 12, 1895

Hiram was the son of Jesse and Maria (Boice) Jaques. they both died in New York. They had twelve children. Hiram remained at home with his parents until their death, when he worked by the month until the spring of 1837, when he came to Illinois by the Ohio, Mississippi and Illinois rivers, with one of his brothers and two neighbors. They first built a mill race, working it by day, month or job for two years, and then took an interest in a saw and grist mill, and later bought it all and 200 acres of land.

Hiram was married in 1838 or 1839, to Nancy Reeves of Kentucky, where her father and mother were early settlers. They had very few neighbors, but there was an abundance of wild game. Mr. Jaques has lived on the farm he first purchased ever since his marriage, except two or three years. He first built a log house in which they lived until the present one was built.

They had 10 Children:

Louisa Lois abt 1839-1922
Alma 1841-1927
Nephi 1844-1878
Rachel 1851-1885
Lucretia Hester 1853-1853
George W. 1855-
Russell H. 1858-1880
Susan A. 1860-1879
William Wallace 'Wall' 1863-
Rosetta 'Rose' 1866-1883

Mr. Jaques has always been an Andrew Jackson Democrat, and now votes the People's ticket, as he is now a member of that party, although he voted for Andrew Jackson. He has been engaged in general farming all his life, and he and his wife are greatly respected by all who know them.
