David Hake
Birth: Sep. 23, 1805
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 14, 1884
Lake City
Calhoun County
Iowa, USA

David was the 11th and last child of John Frederick and Catherina (Crone) Hake. David's father died in April 1830 and in November 1833 David moved with his older brother Daniel and their mother Catherina to Howland, Trumbull County, Ohio.

On September 7, 1841 David married Dorothy the daughter of Simon and Louisa (Bricker) Hood. The first five of their ten children were born in Trumbull County, Ohio. David's mother lived with him in Ohio until her death in 1851. The following year he moved with his family to Jefferson, Jefferson County, Wisconsin where the remaining five children were born.

In about 1880 David and Dorothy joined their son Simon and his wife Kate in Lake City, Calhoun County, Iowa. David died there in 1884 and is buried next to his granddaughter Maggie Belle, Simon's 5 year old daughter who died in 1882. Dorothy was living with Simon and Kate in Sioux City, Iowa in 1885 and eventually returned to Jefferson County, Wisconsin where she lived out the remaining years of he life.

David's granddaughter Esley (Hake) Casson (1878-1962), the daughter of David L. and Alice Jane (Hake) Hake, was a family historian and the following note about her grandfather David Hake was found in her papers:

"Now about the fire ---

Grandpa was a good man and believed in his bible - now the great fire in Wisc did turn back but my father said his dad himself told him he did nothing but go down on his knees and pray - but the fact that he went out in the very path of the fire and knelt caused the rumor to spread in a superstitious way. And Grandpa could water-witch water for he found two spots on our prairie farm in Dakota 1883 -and my father dug the wells and got water."
