Does any one know where James Hakes and wife Isabelle Johnson Hakes are buried? I have a long list of other family members at a couple cemeteries but can't find James.

I found these articles, but no mention of the cemetery, darn it! I wonder if there was a cemetery connected with the Methodist church?




It is a disgrace to the town to
have such hills and roads. The party
were driving down the Connell
hill. one of the worst Hills in the
county. when the pole -pulled out of
the neckyoke ring. It dropped to
the ground and the horses ran away.
At the foot of the hill the rig piled
up in a sad and fatal mixup. Mrs.
Hakes sustained internal injuries
nd was removed to the Northwestrn
hospital. Four of her ribs on
he left side are broken.
Her daughter, Mrs. Mamie Siddeus
and Mr. and Mrs. Truman Siddens
were slightly injured. The doctors
think Mrs. Hakes will die.

Thank you so very much! I was happy to receive another reply today from someone who also offered the cemetery. It is the Forest Hill Cemetery in Chippewa Falls, Wi. I can't find a website for the cemetery and there are only partial listings available on find a grave and another site that has the county cemeteries and listings. I plan on heading up that direction in May so I'll try to stop by the cemetery and get photos (assuming there is something to photograph). JC Hakes was my 4x great grandfather. Linda
