JOSHUA DEAKE FAMILY


ABA. JOSHUA DEAKE
Joshua Dake, oldest son of Dr. John and Hannah Foster Deake, was born June 18, 1747, in the Town of Westerly, Kings County, Colony of Rhode Island. When a boy of about fourteen he moved with his widowed mother to the adjacent town of Richmond were he grew to manhood. Joshua is mentioned in his grandfather Foster's will that was proved in 1766, the only one of the Dake grandchildren so mentioned.

Joshua was married about 1768 or 69 to Miss Mary Hill, daughter of Ebenezer and Thankful Culver Hill. (She was born Feb. 27, 1747 at Westerly, R.I.) In a special census of the Colony of Rhode Island made in the year 1774, one Joshua Deake is listed as living in the Town of Hopkinton with a wife, son (under 16) and two daughters (under 16). He was listed again in the 1777 military census of R.I. as living in Hopkinton, R.I. Joshua Dake moved to Belchertown, Hampshire Co., Mass. in 1784, either with some of the Hill's or where the Hills had already moved to. Records show that he bought a parcel of land from one Asa Hill in Belchertown that same year. The courthouse at Northampton contains several deed records wherein Joshua sold or bought land. The first two deeds are in the name of Joshua Deake but by 1796 he had, like his brothers, changed the spelling of his name to Dake. On August 27, 1805, Joshua bought a parcel from his daughter- in-law, Thankful Deake, widow of his son, Ethan Dake who died that year in Windsor, Hartford County, Connecticut. The Signature of Mary Dake, Joshua's wife, last appears on a deed dated 1826. On March 10, 1829 Joshua sold some sixty six acres of land to his son John Dake for the sum of $800 and on the same day leased back the land for the sum of $400, said land to be his for the remainder of his life. (See Deed with John Dake: ABAB)

He was listed as living in Belchertown, Mass. in the 1830 census. Joshua's name last appears in Westerly, RI in 1832 when he sold some eighty seven acres for $900 to his son John. He was 85 years of age.

Records of the Town of Belcher list the birth of one son Calvin Dake, and it is entered thus "Calvin Dake, born in 1786, the last child of Joshua and Mary Hill Dake." There are no other Dake's listed in the Town records.

Joshua was born in 1810 in Belchertown, Mass. to Calvin and Prudence Dake. Joshua was born in 1810 at Belchertown, Hamshire, Massachusetts to parents Calvin Dake and Prudence (Abbott) Dake.  In 1820 he moved to Troupsburg, Steuben Co., NY with his parents. He was married to Marbry Estoria Clark at Troupsbury, Steuben, N.Y. in 1834. (She was born about 1817 in Mass. The daughter of Eleazer and Abigail Clark, she died June 7, 1886 at Rural, Waupaca, WI and is buried in the Rural Cemetery.) In 1835-38 he moved to Deerfield, Tioga Co., Penn. where he built and ran a sawmill in 1838 with his partner Jacob Green. In the 1850 census Joshua Dake was listed as living in Knoxville, Tioga Co., Penn., age 36 with wife Marby (35); Emory (14); Porter (9); Martha (7); Foster (5); and James R. (1). In 1853 he moved from Tioga Co., Penn. to Fremont, Waupaca Co., WI. He later moved to Dayton, Waupaca Co., WI.  (A lady who later wrote a history of Knoxville, PA told a story of how Marbury had given her mother a spinning wheel because she didn't have room to take with her on their trip to Wisconsin.) He ran a saw mill with his brother which is now known as Clarks Mill. When he went on an excursion into the wilderness country and stayed for some time, his wife Marbury became concerned and sent their son Foster, then a young lad, to find his father. He learned from one or another that his father had taken land in the lake region (Chain O' Lakes). He acquired much land (about 50 acres) between Long Lake and the lake now bearing his name, Dake Lake. He built a log house near Long Lake and later a house facing Dake Lake, possibly the Quimby house. In the 1860 census he was listed living in Dayton, Waupaca Co., WI and was noted to be a "carpenter, joiner", age 56. After his son Veranus Emory Dake remarried in 1870, Joshua and Marbury took care of his three youngest children.  He died on August 27, 1894 in Dayton, Waupaca Co., WI at the home of his son James R. at age 84 and is buried in the Rural Cemetery, Rural Co., WI. (Death published in the Waupaca Co. News)

From Series of When Chain o’ Lakes Were Young by Fred Smith
“Yessir, old George was quite a fellow, and he got to be like a member of the family. But then, all the help we had in those days were almost like members of the family. They were with us for years and years, and we got to think an awful lot of most of them.
“Take girls like Maud Hyatt (Corp. Dake’s daughter), Elizabeth Kreeger, Hattie Wolfgram, and Alice Codding. They were with Mother so many summers it almost seemed like they belonged at Locks-ley and she wouldn’t have known what to do without them
One day while Freddie was off someplace, I was sitting in the yard, and a car drove in. It chugged to a stop, a man unwound a window, and poked out his head.
“Is Fred home?” he hollered.
“No,” said I, “but he should be back any minute. Would you care to wait?”
He got out of his car, walked over, and settled in a chair.
“Yes, I guess I will,” he decided. “I don’t get up to The Lakes very often, and when I do, I always like to see Fred. We’ve had a lot of fun together. A great fellow, Fred, they don’t come any finer!”
As he talked the man eyed me quizzically; he seemed puzzled, unsure of himself. Suddenly he brightened.
“Say!” he exclaimed, “Aren’t you one of Edwin’s girls? Why sure, that’s it! You’re Ellen. I knew I’d seen you someplace, before!”
“Hmn,” was my astounding contribution. I didn’t know him from a hole in the ground. My consternation mounted as he began to laugh.
“That’s a good one,” he roared. “You don’t remember me, do you? And after all the times I took you and Jeannette skating on these Lakes.
Mental acrobatics were in order. My mind raced back into high school, and from there, on down through the grades. But, for the life of me, I couldn’t place the man, and certainly felt the fool!
“Yessir,” her an on, “those were great winters. Your Mother would bundle the two of you together in a blanket, like a couple of papoose, then I’d put you in an armchair, and push you around on the lakes.
“When the skating was good, we’d go lickety-split, and those rides sure tickled you kids. You know both of you could sing long before you could talk, and you’d always sing then at the top of your voices.
“I remember one time when the chair hit a rough spot, and out you went, and sailed along the ice! It scared the heck out of me of course; I figured you’d both be hurt. But, when I got to you and picked you up, you were just winding up the song you’d been singing! The blanket was so thick you hadn’t felt a thing, and lordy, how relieved I was!”
YOU should talk about being relieved, thought I to myself; I’M the one, who is relieved. After all, how could I be expected to remember people I knew before I could talk. I was just about to say so, in so many words, when Freddie turned the corner of the house.
“Well, Judas Priest!” he bellowed, holding out his hand, “If it isn’t old Edgar Dake! How are you, Edgar?”
When they promptly forgot me, I knew three was a crowd, and took my self off with my book. At supper time I returned, and found Freddie whittling, and alone in the yard.
“So, that was old Edgar Dake,” said I, slightly on the sarcastic side.
“Yessir,” chuckled Freddie, “that was old Edgar Dake. I’m glad to see you remember him!”
“Et tu, Brute!” I grumbled.
“What say?” asked Freddie.
“Oh, nothing, Hon.” I sighed. “I’m just being ornery, I guess. But, for heaven’s sake, tell me, who IS old Edgar Dake?”
Freddie grinned. He’d been teasing me again; I just wasn’t smart enough to know it.
“Edgar told me you didn’t remember him,” said he, “but then there’s no reason why you should. You were just a little tyke about three years old, when he worked for Father at Locksley Hall.
“There used to be a lot of Dakes around these Lakes, and Edgar was one of Corporal Dake’s boys.
“Now THERE was a character … old Corporal Dake. My! the stories he used to tell; you’ve never heard anything like them! Of course you had to take them with a grain of salt, but it was lots of fun to listen to him tell those tales. And, come to think about it, maybe it was more fun to watch him.
“He was a great one for acting everything out, and on top of that, the faces he made were so comical, he had people from all over, trying to imitate him. I don’t know how true it is, but they say it was even done in a movie!
“I had to laugh at Edgar this afternoon. He can mimic his father pretty danged good. The way the old man used to squint one eye, put his tongue in one cheek and push his face out of shape, then pull one hand across his nose and mouth, and wipe off the whole expression! I’ll tell you it was funny to see him do that. Judas! how people used to laugh.
“Of course it went right along with all his stories, and they were funny, too. I’ll never forget one he used to tell, about a time when he was in the Civil War.
“I don’t remember where he claimed it happened, but it was down South some place, and right when the fighting was at its very worst. Some how or other, he’d gotten lost from his Company, and he’d been wandering in the hills, all alone, for three days. To hear him tell it, it must have been pretty bad. He was ragged, and hungry, and right smack in the middle of the enemy’s territory.
“It was on the third day, when he was about to give up, that he caught sight of a whole squad of Rebs on maneuvers in those hills. I guess all that saved him was the fact that he was smarter than they were. He was awful weak of course, but he followed them around; keeping out of sight, and dragging his gun!
“Along about evening, they found an old abandoned house, and decided to camp there that night. It was backed right up to a (?) made a good hiding place for old Corporal Dake.
“He said he watched them build a fire outside and get their supper, and for a while he was afraid he’d faint from want of food. But, he managed somehow to keep his senses, and they finally went inside to go to sleep.
“Of course that was what he was waiting for. In about an hour, when everything was quiet, he crawled across the yard and found a few pieces of hardtack and some cold, black coffee. He used to claim it was the best meal he’d ever had. In fact, he claimed it made him feel so good, he decided then and there, to capture the whole, blooming squad, and take them in!
“He said he didn’t waste any time either, once he’d made up his mind. He just crawled around that house, and picked a spot in the woods that was opposite the old back door. Then he aimed his gun and fired!
“Of course, I can’t tell it like he could, but he said about a minute later, he thought all hell had broken loose. The Rebs woke up, and started running around in the house, and all of them were yelling at once.
“Then he fired again, and that quieted them down, so he could make himself heard.
“’This is Corporal Dake of the Union Forces,’ he shouted. ‘Throw out your firearms. We’ve got you surrounded.’
“And, by Judas, that was all there was to it. They threw out their guns and Corporal Dake took them in, single-handed!”
“Tch, tch!” said I. “Not that I like to be a wet blanket, but I thought you said the man was lost. How come he could march those Rebs out of the hills? You also said he was in the heart of enemy territory. How did he get his captives through their own lines? And, what’s more …”
I stopped abruptly, as Freddie began to chuckle.
“I told you,” said he, “that you had to take old Corporal Dake’s stories with a grain of salt. Maybe he captured those fellow and maybe he didn’t, but it was a lot of fun to hear him tell that tale. And, the faces he made and the motion he went through were certainly something to see.
“Yessir, telling stories was about the best thing the old Corporal did, and it kept him right busy, especially during the winter.
“I’ll never forget one time, when a tree fell across his front stoop, late in the fall. It was cold by then, and the tale-telling sessions had already begun, and do you know he didn’t get around to moving that tree until spring? No sir! He just used the back door, the rest of the winter!
“Okay, Corporal Smith!” said I. “That’s enough out of You! You’re tale telling session is keeping me out of the kitchen. Fortunately there’s no tree across the door. If we had to contend with both, we’d starve to death, right here in the yard!”

Andrew and Louis Hansen (his brother) came to America from Denmark and settled in Ashland, WI to work in the logging camps. There were so many Hansens in camp they had trouble with their mail from home so they changed their name to Stensen. They came to Waupaca to work on a farm and during the winter they would go into the north woods to harvest timber. Each married a girl from that area. When Andrew was 17 years old, in 1922, he moved with his family from Rural to Oshkosh where he worked at various jobs. First at Paine Lumber company and then for the road crew for Winnebago County and finally he spent many years as the custodian for the Masonic Temple in Oshkohs. He retired as the custodian at the age of 71 and moved to a rented house outside of Ogdensburg, WI where he had a little land and raised about an acre of cucumbers which he sold to the local pickle factory. Then his son-in-law, Orlando Hahn, (married to their daughter Ada) bought a few acres of land in the village of Rural.

(The 32nd Division was formed with units from the states of Wisconsin and Michigan and was among the first of seven U.S. Army and U.S. Marine units to engage in offensive ground combat operations during 1942. The division was among the first divisions to enter the war and were still engaging Japanese soldiers after the official Japanese surrender. The 32nd logged a total of 654 days of combat during World War II, more than any other United States Army division. The unit was inactivated in 1946 after occupation duty in Japan. According to a Brian Morris in Australia, David's name is inscribed in St. Christophers Chapel at Nerimbra, near Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia, along with eight other US service men. The Chapel was built by US servicemen during WWII. There were sporting events held near the Chapel and David won the Broad Jump competition and his name was recorded with seven other contest winners in the rafters of the chapel. There is a celebration held each year on the 4th of July at this Chapel honoring the US servicemen.). David came down with Malaria three times while in the military. He also saw action in the battle of Leyte in the Philippines and the battle of Luzon.
