|Marion Meginnis||Haak Family|
I saw your request for photos of the Haak family graves in Davenport and was curious as to your connection.
My husband and I own Minnie Meier Haak's home at 519 W. 8th St. in Davenport. Richard Haak's house is also still standing in our neighborhood.
We do collect history of our area and was curious if you have any photos, etc, that you might be able to share.
Interestingly, Minnie is buried with her family in Oakdale, but her husband Charles Meier is not buried with the Haak family, but in another location in the cemetery. He was killed when his car was hit by a train about 10 years before Minnie died. We have heard various stories as to the reason for his death..some from relatives. In any case, happy to share whatever I have, and hoping you might have info as well.
