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
Robert (Porter) Dake
“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.
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
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
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,
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“Then he fired again, and that quieted them down, so he could make
“’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,
“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!”
