Robert G. Laken

Deborah Early Lakin (2nd wife)

Background Information

from Google Books "The History of Hancock, New Hampshire, 1764-1889" by William Willis Hayward:
Lakin genealogy begins on pg 722

There is a discussion of several generations, then, near the bottom of page 723, Jonathan (father of Robert G. Lakin) is mentioned as the son of William (1).

On page 731, Jonathan (69) "Jonathan m. Asenath Parks, sister of Prudence Parks (q.v.); res. In Hancock, N.Y.; was a soldier in the war of 1812-14; was wounded at the storming of Little York (now Toronto), Can., and d. in central New York. His wife and children went in a wagon from Hancock, N.Y. To see him, and after his death returned to their home: Children: Orsemus, Robert, Eunice, Malinda"

Prudence Parks married Jonas Lakin, she and Aenath were daughters of Josiah "The Bo'sun" Parks, and Thankful (Anne) Weekly, well known in the area.

Robert (son of Jonathan) is my great-great-great grandfather, Robert G. Lakin. We don't know what his middle name was.

I am in regular contact with some descendants of Orsemus, as well as some of Arad Lakin's, the brother of my great-grandfather, Edwin Ruthwin Lakin, both sons of Robert G. Lakin.

All photos are from photograph albums of my great grandfather, Edwin Ruthwin Lakin. --Merry Guido
