Lost HAHS in Wayne county.

I've lost the trail of several HAHS family members in Wayne County. Any help would be appreciated.

1 - Unknown HAHS married Polly Ann CRITES, daughter of Alfred CRITES and his wife Barbara Adeline BARKS. In the 1910 census, 3 HAHS grandchildren are living with Alfred CRITES and his wife in Lost Creek Township, Wayne County. They are Laura E., born about 1893, Clarence W., born about 1895, and John B. born about 1904. I haven't found an on-line marriage listing for Polly Ann's first marriage, nor have I found the family in the 1900 census. I'm guessing that Polly Ann and this unknown HAHS married about 1892, and that he died on or before 1903. For her second marriage, Polly Ann married Frank HAHS in Lowndes, Wayne County on 16 March 1904. The marriage license clearly gave her name as HAHS. In the 1910 census, they are living in Madison County, Missouri, both listed as married twice, and for 6 years. In 1920 and 1930, they are living in Arkansas, and are buried at Corning Cemetery, Clay County, Arkansas.

2 - Laura E. HAHS, mentioned above, married Simon Peter DIXON on 20 May 1910 in Greenville, Wayne County. Peter was shown as a farm laborer in the CRITES household during the census, less than one month before the wedding. Daughter Freda (b. 1911) and Ethel (b. 1913) were said to have been born in Ripley County, Missouri. The family was living there in the 1920 census. I do not know what became of Laura after that. I know that Simon Peter remarried to Lucy Jane Niswonger. Freda's obituary, dated 1988, mentioned that she was survived by a number of half-siblings, but did not name any of them. I have not been able to find Laura in the Missouri Death Index. It's possible that Simon Peter and Laura divorced, and that she also remarried.

3 - Clarence W. HAHS, mentioned above, married on 6 April 1913 in Lowndes, Wayne County. The image of the marriage license is blurry, so I cannot be sure of his wife's name - Lattie or Lottie McClutcher, perhaps. He was under age 21, and she was under age 18. His mother and her father gave their permission to the marriage. After that, I have found no trace of Clarence or his wife.

4 - John B. HAHS, mentioned above. The only record I have of him is the 1910 census. In that census, his mother stated she was the mother of 5 children, all 5 living, but only 2 in her home. The 1910 census lists Laura as "granddaughter" in the home of Alfred CRITES, then lists Clarence and John as "brother" - I am assuming they meant brothers of Laura, as they couldn't possibly be Alfred's siblings. John B. HAHS in Alfred CRITES home and Carl HAHS in his mother's home were both listed as age 5. I do not know if they were twins, or of the same marriage.

Essentially, I have lost Mr. HAHS and his 3 children, and one known daughter-in-law. Again, any information on the family would be appreciated. My granddaughter is a descendant of this unknown HAHS and his daughter Laura.
