Lokking for information on Eva M. (Brickley) Haiflich and Eva Jane (Brickley) Cover, Haiflich, Highlen

+3 votes
I have An Eva M. Brickley that was married to Charles E. Haiflch. They are buried together in the Hoverstock Cem. in Zanesville, Wells Co., Indiana. I found her in the 1930 census living wit her mother, Sarah () Brickley. She was allegedly born 1884-1885 in Ohio.

Charles E. Haiflich was born Sep 1871 to Reubin and Mary Elizabeth (Xink) Haiflich in either Indiana or Ohio.

I also have an Eva Jane Brickley that was married three time, one of which to Unknown Haiflich. She was born either May 20, 1884 or May 21, 1885 in Rockcreek Twp., Wells Co., Indiana, the daughter of Andrew Jackson and Sarah (Wert) Brickley.

Eva Jane Brickley also married Thomas Carlton "Carl" Cover Feb 9, 1906 in Wells Co., Indiana, And married J. Edward Highlen Nov 7 1931 in Wells Co., Indiana. Since Thomas Cover lived until 1946, they had to have been divorced at some time before 1931.

I suspect that both Eva's are the same person, but I can't prove it. In the 1910 Census for Thomas Cover, she is listed as Eva M. Cover. In her marriage Record to J. Edward Highlen she is listed as Eva Brickley Haiflich. So she had to have been married to Unknown Haiflilch in between Cover and Highlen.

I found it.


C.E. Haifley and Eva Kover

Names misspelled and birth dates incorrect, but it's them.

And no, Eva M. and Eva Jane Brickley are not the same persons.

Now I have to find out who Eva M. Brickley's Parents were.

Thanks any way.

There's confusion and errors in some online trees, understandably because:

There are two people named Charles Elmer Haiflich/Haflich born in 1871 and 1872 in Wells Co.

Eva's middle name Jane or M. in different records

It seems that:

Eva Brickley was the daughter of Andrew Brickley and Sarah Wert


her 2nd of 3 marriages was to Charles Elmer Haiflich in 1924, son of William Haifley and Sarah Sparks

Charles Elmer Haflich (1871-1905) was the son of Reuben Haflich and Mary Elizabeth Zink Cline

Hope this helps :)

Thank you for answering. I do appreciate the help.

What I'm still looking for now is

1) who Eva M. Brickley's Father, and parentage was and

2) what her Mother's Maiden Name and parentage, was.

I know that her Mother's Given Name was Sarah. She was born about 1847, probably in Ohio, and was widowed before the 1910 Census.

She was living in Uniondale, Indiana, during the 1930 Census.

Thank you in advance.



I believe Eva Brickley was the daughter of Andrew Brickley and Sarah Wert 

she was in their 1900 census household

in 1920 her brother William David Brickley's obit includes sister Eva Cover

in 1932 her mother Sarah Wert Brickley's obit includes daughter Mrs. Eva Highlen, near Zanesville

Eva's marriage in 1924   https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=MI-Marriages&h=2945236&indiv=try&o_vc=Record:OtherRecord&rhSource=60282

Eva Kover  [Eva (Brickley) Cover]Marriage:  16 Apr 1924  Coldwater, Branch, Michigan

Father:  Andrew Brickley

Mother:  Sarah Wert

Spouse:  C E Haifley

Eva Jane was the daughter of Andrew Brickley and Sarah Wert, not Eva M. Brickley. Eva Jane was born 21 May 1884 in Indiana. Eva M. was born about 1884-1885 in Ohio.
