I am looking for the connection of these Doak families:
1) Catherine Doak, born 27 Oct 1834 OH; married George Haymond 14 Apr 1852 Will Co., IL
2) Mary Ann Doak born abt 1824 OH; married Royal Uran 18 Sept 1846 Will Co., IL
3) William Doak born 9 March 1826 PA; married Mary Uran 8 July 1847 Will Co., IL
Royal Uran and Mary Uran were brother and sister. Their parents were Jonathan Uran and Sarah Smith Haven.
I have the following bio for William Doak:
"The History of Madison County, 1879"
DOAK, WILLIAM, Jefferson twp., farmer, Sec. 27; P.O. Winterset; born in Lehigh county, Pa., March 9, 1826; he was very young when his parents moved to Richland county, Ohio; his parents moved to Iroquois county, Illinois, when he was nine years of age; he married Miss MARY URAN July 8, 1847; the same fall they came to Warren county, Iowa, and were among the first settlers; he cast his first vote in Iowa in 1852; he went to California by land and drove live yoke of cattle and was five months on the road; he remained there until 1854, and then returned to Iowa; October 2, 1862, he enlisted in the Second Iowa Battery and was mustered out August 11, 1865; he was engaged in the battles of Jackson, Miss., Siege of Vicksburg, second battle of Jackson, Tupelo, Miss., and Nashville, Tenn.; he came to this county in 1857; owns 157 acres of land; has a family of two sons and one daughter: SARAH, now MRS. WILLIAM BUTLER, ANDREW and COLLIE.
William Doak and Mary Uran had 3 children:
1) Sarah Doak, born 1850 IA married William Butler
2) William Andrew Doak, born 1855 Warren Co., IA died 25 June 1905 Madison Co., IA He married Sarah Ellen McDaniel on 23 Dec 1875 in Madison Co., IA
William and Sarah had 3 children:
i) William F (Frank) Doak, born 1878 Madison Co., IA
ii) Charles C Doak, born Jan 1880 Madison Co., IA died 1925 in Madison Co., IA
iii) Clarence Doak, born 1884 Madison Co., IA
3) Aaron C. (Collie), born 1857 in IA
Mary Ann Doak and Royal Uran also lived in Madison Co., IA in 1850. They had at least 2 children.
Catherine Doak and George Haymond moved from Will Co., IL sometime in the early 1860s to Polk Co., IA and then on to Madison Co., IA. They raised their family of 12 children in the Madison Co., IA area.
On Catherine Doak Haymondís death certificate her parents are listed as John Doak and Katherine Bear, both born in PA.
I think Mary Ann, Catherine, and William were siblings. Three more possible siblings are:
James Doak born abt 1822 PA
Daniel Doak born abt 1830 OH
Harriet Doak born ? married Cyrus B Lott 6 Jan 1850 Will Co., IL
The Will Co., IL 1850 Federal Census shows the following household:
Doak, Catherine age 59 born Pa
Doak, Catherine age 15 born Oh
Doak, Daniel age 20 born Oh
Doak, James age 28 born Pa
Can anyone connect to these families? I would like to trace John Doak and Katherine Bear in PA. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
