Descendants of Solomon and Anna (Billings) Hakes

Hakes Home In the mid 1800s, Dr. Harry Hakes of Wilkes-Barre, PA undertook the monumental task of creating a genealogical record of the extensive Hakes family members who had or were serving as lawyers in the Pennsylvania Bar - especially in Wilkes-Barre, PA   He published the first edition in 1886 followed by a second edition with significant corrections and updates.  We are indebted to him for the accuracy which only a solid legal mind could have contributed to the work.

Justin Hakes of Marshall Michigan updated the Martin Groat Hakes portion of this family and republished the original to a limited number of the family.

This site is dedicated to Harry and Justin Hakes, indeed, all the Hakes family who have gone before us.  May it serve as a focal point for gathering and maintaining the history of this family.
