The Hakes Family
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.
