EDWARD DEAKE FAMILY
Immanuel was the oldest son of Edward Deake and Mary Adams (Gould) Deake born
on April 3, 1759 at Charlestown, Kings Co., R.I. He was listed in the 1777 military
census as living in Charleston, R.I. He served three years in the Revolutionary
War and received a pension for service (S16105). He served as a Sergeant Major
under Col. Willett Regiment and Col. Wright's Company. He returned from the War
in 1783 and stated later, "I was married a short time after the War by my father
who was a Clergyman, first at Ballston and then at Charlton." On Nov. 29, 1784
he was married to a widow Lucresa Wiatt in the Presbyterian Church at Ballston
Center, Saratoga Co., N.Y.
While by his own statement, he was married by his father the following record
would indicate otherwise: From the records of the First Presbyterian Church, Ballston,
Saratoga Co., NY "At a place called the five thousand acres, at the house
of the Widow Wiatts, November the 29 day 1784; I married Mr. Emanuel Dake and
Mrs. Lucreas Waitt, both of that place. (gift 11 shillings), test. Ebenezer Martin,
Minister of the Gospel".
By 1790 he was living in Washington Co., N.Y. moving there with his father and
other family members. In 1803 he moved his family to Woodstock, Ontario, Canada.
The family lived around Woodstock, Johnstown and Kempville, Ontario. During this
period he was married several times. On June 1810, he was involved in a land dispute
in Washington County, NY. In 1832 when the U.S. Congress voted a pension for all
remaining veterans of the War he decided to move back to the U.S. Due to poor
health it was 1833 before Immanuel and many of his children moved back to the
U.S. settling in the town of Hammond, St. Lawrence Co., N.Y. He was listed in
the 1840 N.Y. Census at age 79 still living in Hammond, St. Lawrence Co., in the
David Fell household, his son-in-law. He died in Hammond, St. Lawrence Co.,N.Y.
on March 13, 1847.
Application for Pension
State of New York
St. Lawrence County
On this fifteenth day of October 1832 personally appeared before the Honorable
John Fine first Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in and for the County of St.
Lawrence in the state of New York, Immanuel Dake of Hammond in the County of
St. Lawrence & State aforesaid, age seventy four years the third day of April
next, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the
following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by
the act of Congress, passed June 1, 1832; that he enlisted in the army of the
United States in the year 1779 or 1780 at Ballston in the County of Saratoga in
the state of New York, where he resided with his parents, in a company commanded
by Capt. Job Wright of Stillwater in said county & in a regiment commanded
by Col. Willet. At the time that declarant enlisted, one Ike Shubbell was a Lieutenant
& one Thornton was also a Lieutenant. Declarant enlisted as First- Sargent
& served as such during three years for which time this declarant enlisted.
Declarant joined the Regiment, or several companies of it at Johnstown. From Johnstown
this declarant went with his company to Fort Nellis, now in the town of Manheim
in the county of Herrkimer. Declarent remained one summer & part, if not all
of the spring & autumn at said Fort Nellis. Form Fort Nellis to Fort Herkimer
& from hence declarent went to Fort Stanwix (now Rome) & remained there
sometime. While declarent was on an island there, the water of the river rose
so high as to compel the soldiers to leave therre & go ashore-- When they
got ashore they built a block house & from thence declarent went to Fort Herkimer.
Declarent was during this enlistment at Fort Plain & at a small place called
Fort Schuyler. Declarent cannot state at which of the last named places he was
at first. Declarent cannot state at which of the last named places he was at first.
Declarent well recollects that when he was onetime at Fort Herkimer, a reinforcement
said to have been a part of Rhode Island regiment, joined the part of Colonel
Willet's regiment to which declarent belonged & went from thence to Fort Stanwix
& then arranged to go to Oswego. Declarent believes there were five companies
of Col. Willet's regiment that started for Oswego. He cannot recollect how many
there were of the Rhode Island reinforcement. Declarent well recollects that this
was in the dead of winter--there were Indian guides employed--One he thinks was
called Capt. John. They travelled several days through the snow, as thhey supposed,
toward Oswego. A great number , said to have been five hundred persons went ahead
on snowshoefs--that instead of leading the army to Oswego, the guides led us into
a swamp about nine miles, it was afterwards aceertained, from Oswego. After it
was found out that we were misled, fires were built to warm us, when it was ascertained
that a great number were frozen considerably--A great many died & one company,
mostly colored persons nearly all died--When we started on our return to Fort
Stanwix our provisions werrre nearly all exhausted & the last five days before
we arrived at Fort Stanwix we had no provisions except head horse flesh, or something
of that kind.
A great number of persons died on this expedition--At Oswego there lay some British
forces under command of Maj. Ross. Two of the Indian guides were supposed to have
perished. When on our return to Oneida Lake declarent was ordered to see to settleing
and taking care of the guard. After setting the guard declarent saw some more
on top of the hill, but as we were exposed, no noise was made, lest the enemy
should discover us in our reduced situuation, for if they had done so we could
have been easily taken. Declarent afterwards learned that the British Sargeant
of the Guard saw us but hid himself behind an elm tree and did not communicated
to his friends what he had seen & that soon after he and a fifer deserted
& joined us at Fort Herkimer. This declarent further says that the British
sent a flag of truce then & there to get these two deserters but Col. Willet
would not give them up. After leaving Oneida Lake, we went to Fort Stanwix &
from thence to Fort Herkimer where we staid till near fall-- The last work we
did there was to build a Block house--After it was completed we dug up the body
of Capt. McKeun who had been killed by the Indians & buried his body at the
step of the door & then called the building Fort McKeun. the timber which
composed this building was got out & drawn principally under the direction
of Declarent. Veeder & Smith were contractors to supply our regiment with
provisions & their postman one Skinner acted as commisary. While at Fort Herkimer
Skinner got hurt by the falling of a building & he then reqauested declarent
to into the storehouse & act as commisary & declarent did so until said
Skinner got able to attend to the duty himself. Declarent went as pilot for Genl.
Washington for Fort Herkimer to Rome in the night. Declarent went with the regiment
at the close of the war to Schenectady & assisted in collecting the arms,
when the companies were disbanded, Declarent then assited in taking the arms over
from Schenectady to Albany where they were put into a store house & declarent
thinks they were put into the government war storehouse. Declarent returned to
Schenectady & was finally discharged by Maj. Tierce, who then had command
of the companies that were marched to Schenectady--Declarent thinks that at this
time Col. Willet had gone south to Albany or New York. He was not with the regiment
much of the time after the return of the army from Oswego. During this service
Plinny More was Adjutant. This disbandment of our regiment was after peace was
proclaimed & we had only about three months more time to serve when peace
was proclaimed. Declarent cannot state in connecting order the places where was
during this service any further than he had done.
Declarent was born in Charlestown in the state of Rhode Island in the year 1759
& he had a record of his age in his family bible at his own residence &
he has no other record--& that he resided with his parents at Ballston in
the state of New York when he enlisted & he resided there after his return
from the army & then declarent went to Charlton in the same state to reside.
Deponent knows Luther Samphin & Orin Brown of Hammond who can attest to the
character & reputation of declarent.
Declarent has no proof of his services, except the affidavit of Solomon Uker hereunto
annexed, further than he has stated that he is now aware of.
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity, except the
present & declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency
of any state.

Donald Dake dies
SOUTH BEND -- Donald A.
Dake, a longtime supporter of the arts and a former South Bend Community School
Corp. superintendent, died Monday in South Bend. He was 81.
Dake, of Robinhood Lane, served the South Bend schools for more than 40 years
as a teacher, administrator and superintendent before his retirement in 1979.
He held the top position in the school system during one of the most challenging
decades in the system's history. He became superintendent in 1969 at the height
of student protests and in an age of racial change. The desegregation of city
schools occupied much of Dake's time and talent and he was known for accomplishing
the task without taking a confrontational approach.
As recently as 1990, Dake was selected by U.S. District Judge Allen Sharp to monitor
the desegregation process in the Fort Wayne schools. He was charged with making
sure that Fort Wayne Community Schools and a citizens group called Parents for
Quality Education with Integration held to a plan for racially balancing elementary
schools in that city. During his decade of service at the helm of the South Bend
schools, Dake witnessed and led the adoption of the middle school approach in
the city, and he oversaw the controversial task of closing Central High School
and converting Jackson from a high school to a middle school.
He was known for his long-standing support of the arts, and he helped form the
Michiana Arts and Sciences Council. Dake also worked to promote the efforts of
the South Bend Symphony, the Michiana Opera Guild and the Michiana Public Broadcasting
He was born in April 1917, in Flint, Mich., and earned his bachelor's degree from
Michigan State University and his master's degree from Indiana University. He
served in the Army Air Corps during World War II.
During his days with the South Bend schools, Dake was a teacher at John Adams
High School, director of pupil personnel for the schools and was a principal at
Riley High School. He also served as director of secondary education and assistant
superintendent of instruction. In 1988 he was inducted into the South Bend School
Boosters Hall of Fame.
The recipient of many major honors for his civic commitment, Dake received the
South Bend Rotary Club's Distinguished Community Service Award in 1985. He earned
the Michiana Arts and Sciences Council Community Arts Award in 1980 and was honored
with a community tribute dinner after his retirement from the school system in
1979. He also served as vice chairman of the board of the South Bend Symphony
and as chairman of the board of the Snite Museum of Art.
Dake and his wife, Marijane, had one son, Michael David Dake. Welsheimer Funeral
Home is in charge of arrangements.

AFAJC. Crawley P. Dake
Major Crawley P. Dake of
Romeo, Michigan Chief-Deputy United States Marshal for the Eastern District
of Michigan, was born at Kempville, Ontario, September 15, 1836 to parents Gamiliel
Dake and Sophia Garlick. Both his parents were natives of New England. He removed
with them when twelve years of age, from Canada to Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence
Co., New York.
Having obtained a good common school education, he went to Romeo, Michigian,
at the age of eighteen, and was there employed as a drugists clerk in a store
belonging to his elder brother. Subsequently, he became partner in a drug store
In 1862 during the second year of the Civil War upon a call for more troops,
he received authority to raise a company of men; he recruited one hundred and
twenty men in Macomb County, and was mustered in as Captain, August 14, 1862.
His company was attached to the 5th Mich. Cavalry, which rendezvoused at Detroit
while organizing, and was the first full Company of that Regiment, which was
under the command of Colonel J. T. Copeland. The Regiment left for the seat
of war in Virginia in December 1862; it was one of the four Regiments comprising
the Michigan Cavalry Brigade, under the command of General George A. Custer,
which did some of the severest fighting of the War. Captain Dake was promoted
to the rank of Major, December 31, 1862. He participated with his command in
the following engagements: Hanover,Va. Huntertown and Gettysburg, Penn.; Monterey,
Cavetown, Southtown, Boonsboro, Hagerstown, Williamsport and Falling Waters,
Maryland; Snicker Gap, Culpepper Courthouse, Roccoon Ford, White's Ford, Jocob's
Shop, James City, Brady's Station, Buckland Mills, Stevensburg, Mortons' Ford,
The Wilderness, Beaver Dam Station, Yellow Tavern,Meadow Bridge, Milford, Hack's
Shop, Baltimore Cross-roads, Trevilliam Station and Cold Harbor, Virginia.
On August 19, 1864, Major Dake resigned his commission at Harper's Ferry, and
returned to Michigan to assist in raising another Regiment, to be known as the
30th Michigan Infantry, of which he had the appointment of Lieutenant-Colonel.
After eight companies were raised, however, they were distributed among the
3rd and 4th Michigan Regiments, at the urgent call for troops for General Sherman's
Army; and the raising of the 30th Regiment was abondoned. Lt. Col. Dake continued
the work of recruiting men for the Army until the close of the War, when he
returned to Romeo. He was married to Catherine E. Smith.
In May 1869, he was appointed by President Hayes, Assessor of Internal Revenue
of the Fifth Collection District of Michigan and subsequently, when the offices
of Assessor and Collector were consolidated, he was appointed Collector. This
office he held until the consolidation of the two Districts, in March 1877.
He soon after received the appointment of Chief-Deputy United States Marshal
for the Eastern District of Michigan. In 1876, Dake had resigned his position
in the Internal Revenue Service to run for the position of State Representative
from Macomb County. Although the county had a Democrat majority of some 600
voters, he lost the election by only twelve votes. Dake, of course, was a Republican.
On June the 12th, 1878, Dake accepted the position of United States Marshal
for the Arizona Territory, with his salary dependent upon the fees collected.
See copy of Appointment to US Marshall..
It is one of the ironies of history that Dake was a man much more likely to
be found at home with his wife and child, than carousing in a dance hall or
standing in the center of main street with his six guns a blazing. Dake was
more a bureaucrat than he was a gun fighter, furthermore he was plagued by the
hip wound acquired in the Civil War which caused considerable suffering until
his death. Dake, therefore, delegated most of the actual federal law enforcement
to his deputies. He originally appointed Virgil Earp (Wyatt Earp's brother)
to be Marshall of Tombstone, AZ. In January 1882, after Virgil Earp was ambushed
and seriously wounded by Jonny Ringo, U.S. Marshal Dake of the Arizona Territory,
visited Tombstone, AZ with the acting Governor, John J. Gosper, and appointed
Wyatt Earp to clean up the territory and run Johnny Ringo out of town. Dake's
time in office would be hampered by a lack of funds from Washington, and his
ultimate need for creative accounting. This was never more evident than after
the attack on Deputy U.S. Marshal Virgil Earp on December 28, 1881, in Tombstone.
With his own deputy gunned down, Dake needed to fund a posse for Wyatt Earp,
and he had no time to wait for tight-fisted bureaucrats in Washington. Dake
appealed to the Wells Fargo express company and managed to secure a $3,000 loan
to supposedly outfit a posse under Wyatt Earp. Late in January 1882, Dake visited
Tombstone to appoint a replacement for the injured Virgil and to meet with Wyatt.
According to later rumors, during this visit, Dake actually spent about $300
of the money carousing in sporting houses with the Earp posse.
Dake eventually left the U.S. marshal's office in July 1882, amid suspicions
that he had not kept proper accounts and had siphoned federal monies into his
personal bank holdings. In 1885 a federal examiner named Leigh Chalmers was
assigned to investigate Dake's accounts, or lack thereof, and found that Dake
had actually pocketed most of the $3,000 borrowed from Wells Fargo. Chalmers
traveled to Tombstone and interviewed former posse rider Origen Charles Smith,
who provided some interesting information on the Earp posse. Smith stated that
Earp's men had each been furnished with a horse, bridle, saddle, carbine, six-shooter
and rations and had been paid $5 per day, over a period of only 30 days. Smith
further stated that Wyatt only had access to about $500 from Dake, and that
Earp obtained most of the money for his posse from a fund set up by the citizens
of Tombstone and contributions from Wells Fargo. The express company's cashbooks
do confirm separate payments specifically made to the Earp posse for their Vendetta
Although the federal examiner, Leigh Chalmers, found ample evidence against
Dake for the misappropriation of funds, he was never prosecuted. Dake's influential
friends in Washington, D.C., ensured the case dragged on and eventually went
nowhere. On July 18, 1882, Zan L. Tidball replaced Dake as U.S. Marshal, but
he continued to live at Prescott. In the history of Tombstone, AZ, the mention
of Crawley was not very positive. It was stated that he would only come to help
for the money (His salary was dependent on fees collected, so this was a fact
of life but didn't leave a positive impression on the town folks).
Dake remained in Prescott where he managed his mining and business interests
until his death on April 9, 1890. He died from complications of his old Civil
the Prescott Journal-Miner, April 16, 1890:
Although Major C. P.
Dake had been confined to his room for nearly a year and a half, the community
was considerably surprised yesterday afternoon, to learn that he had died, as
it was not generally known that his condition had changed for the worse.
Early in the war of
the rebellion, C. P. Dake raised a company at his home in Michigan, and was
afterwards promoted to be major of the regiment to which it was assigned, and
he made a record as a brave soldier. It was during an engagement that he received
a wound which never healed, and which after all these years was the cause of
Coming to Arizona,
he was appointed United States marshal for the territory, at a time, too, when
it required tact and nerve to fill the position, but the duties of which were
discharged by him in a manner to reflect credit. Since retiring from this office,
he has been engaged in business pursuits until over a year ago, when he was
compelled to retire on account of sickness and has ever since been confined
to the house.
The funeral took place
this afternoon at 3 o'clock from the family residence on Marina street, and
the remains were followed to their last resting place by a large concourse of
sorrowing friends and citizens of Prescott."

citizen of St. Thomas, died unexpectedly at his home, 721 Talbot street, on Saturday

his death and funeral.
NO FOUL PLAY IN DAKE
No evidence of foul play
has been discovered in connection with the death of Adrian W. (Bud) Dake 44, local
tobacconist, Thursday evening in Toronto General Hospital.
Mr. Dake was believed to have died as a result of a staircase fall in which he
banged his head against a wall, but the nature of his injuries raised the questions
of possible foul play in the minds of Toronto police.. They requested an investigation
by local police which was conducted by acting detective John Bingeman.
Mr. Dake died a few hours after his arrival at Toronto General Hospital where
he was rushed on Thursday from the local general hospital for an emergency brain
operation. Dr. C. A. Bell of Port Stanley who answered a call to the Dake home
at 9 p.m. last Tuesday and who sent him to St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital,
told Detective Bingeman that Mr. Dake had a large amount of money on his person
when he arrived at hospital. Further investigation by the detective revealed that
nothing had been touched in the smoke shop at 719 Talbot Street. An employee of
the shop, Jack Dummer, reported Mr. Dake had entered his apartment above the shop
at about 12:45 a.m. on Tuesday, checking radiators. Mr. Dummer said his employer's
hands were dirty and his topcoat oil-stained. Mr. Dummer added that Dake was reading
a newspaper in the shop when he got to work at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. He said
Dake did not appear to have been injured and did not complain of having been hurt.
Fred Luscombe, of 5 Manitoba Street, said that at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Mr. Dake complained
of an injury to his right leg. By 1:15 p.m., Mr. Dake seemed confused, Luscombe
told the officer. In concluding his report Detective Bingeman said that Dake had
apparently slipped on a patch of oil in the basement of the smoke shop and possibly
hit his head in a fall. Dr. Bell's examination revealed that Mr. Dake had suffered
a fractured skull, abrasions to the back of his head, right knee and left elbow.
He also had blood in his nose and right ear.

YOUNG WIFE ASPHYXIATED
A very sad occurrence took
place at the home of Colborne Dake, 9421 Champagne Avenue, Chicago, last Friday
night, when his wife met an untimely death by asphyxiation. Mr. Dake is an engineer
on the Illinois Centeral and son of Mr. Lew Dake of St. Thomas, formerly of the
Dake House, Norwich. Mr. Dake left home Friday afternoon at 5 o'clock to make
his usual run, leaving his wife alone at home. When he returned at nine o'clock
the next morning he found the house locked. Smashing in the window of his wife's
room with an axe, a rush of gas poured out. Mrs. Dake was found dead in bed, and
on the floor was the lifeless body of her pet dog. An examination revealed the
fact that the escaping gas was not from an open spigget , but from a defect in
the gas stove near the metre. The doctors said the deceased had been dead between
two and three hours when found. The late Mrs. Dake, who was formerly Miss Jennie
Bush, of Port Dover, was only 24 years of age, and had been married only about
two years. She was to have gone to her old home at Port Doiver on a visit last
Monday, and had written her brothers and sisters to that effect. Instead, it was
her dead body which they assembled at the Port Dover station to meet, interment
taking place at the family cemetery at that place. A pathetic feature of the case
was that the new silk dress which her husband had gotten for her to wear home
on her visit was destined to be the shroud in which she was buried. Deceased left
