Regarding my earlier message, I have some additional information. Althea Dake's first name may actually be Altha. Her mother was Sarah (aka Sallie B. Dake) who was born in Vermont in 1793 or '94 and lived in Champaign County, IL as late 1860 . They had three children that we know of: Althea or Altha b.1816 in Vermont d.1861 in Champaign County, Illinois, Jerimy(sic)b. 1835 in OH unknown death date, and Martha(aka Mattie) who taught school, never married, and attended my father's and her great nephew's(James Deane) wedding in Chicago in 1919. I am still trying to learn Sarah Dake's husband's name and hope this additional information about Sarah may tie in with some previous Dake Family research.
