Hello! I am looking for the family of Ora Jaques born 1891 in Iowa. Both of his parents were born in Canada. He is African American.
He has two children, Rolland & June both born in Omaha There names were changed to Jakes, he married Willa Mae Michels (Who was african american and her father was part french) in Omaha NE, and shortly died there after in 1934. He was shot dead in the streets.
I would like to find more information about his parents. And being that his birth was in 1891, I'm assuming I should hit the slavery road block.
Any information helps
