What happened to Charles Hackey?

+6 votes
charles was born bet. 1851 and 1855 in Philadelphia PA. His father was John Hackey who came over from Ireland and the family lived in Philadelphia.  His daughter was Pearl Pascell Wilks, born Michigan 1871. ( I don't believe that Charles was Pearl's father, as her marriage records to Wilks show her maiden name as Pascell.) My gr grandfather was his son John Hackey b. 1881 Nebraska and Herbert Earl Hackey Sr. b. 1876 Nebraska. Charles married Ellen Jennie Elliott (aka Jennie) in 1881 in Nebraska. The last record I have found for Charles was the 1880 census in Lodgepole, Cheyenne Nebraska. Jennie is shown marrying Lowell Moore in 1893 in Michigan. She moved to Wisconsin and lived with Louisa Moore her last child. She came back to Michigan in later years and lived with Herbert and passed while living with him. I have checked what 1885 census available, and 1900 census. He seems to have disappeared. Most his siblings died in Pennsylvania. I have checked other siblings etc.

So, this original post was hard to follow, and this is what I have come up with:

A Charles Hackey, born 1854 in Philadelphia, lives in the 1860 census there  with his parents, John (Irish immigrant) and Margaret (born Phila), his siblings, Jason, Mary, Emma, and Margaret, and a Philadelphian named Thomas McArthur. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MXR8-C8T

A Charles Hackey, born 1853-1854 and living in Philadelphia Pennsylvania shows up in the 1870 census there with his parents, John (an Irish immigrant) and Margaret (born PA). He also shows up with his siblings, Emma, Frederick, Rose, and George, alongside two other Irish immigrants, Mary Adamas, and Mary Marrison. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZPS-7X7

A Charles Hackey, born 1851 in Pennsylvania, lives with his wife Jenny, and children, Pearl and Earl, in the 1880 census. Jenny and Pearl were born in Michigan, and Earl was born in Nebraska, where the family now lives. They are in Lodge Pole, Cheyenne, Nebraska. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8Y4-YLQ

A “Charles or John” Hackey, age 29, of Philadelphia, Pa. married Ellen Elliot, age 29, in Cheyenne County, Nebraska. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X5Z2-PKZ

The search of the Nebraska State Census, 1885, brings up nothing for Charles Hackey. https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3ACharles~%20%2Bsurname%3AHackey~&collection_id=1810728

A Jennie Hackey, daughter of John Elliott and Susan Thorn, born 1853 Michigan and age 40, marries Joseph P Lindrgren, a Swedish immigrant and son of Peter and L (Paterson) Lindgren. They marry 10 October 1893 in Kalkasha, Michigan. It states she had been married once before. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N3NL-8GK

A Jennie Elliott Hackey is buried in the Restlawn Cemetery, Muskegon, Michigan, alongside her son Herbert. She died in 1927. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/157082400/jennie-hackey

Jennie is also listed as “Jennie Hackey” on her death certificate, not her second married name  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KFQK-LQ2 

Pearl Parcel Wilks’ father’s name is listed as John Parcel on her death certificate (picture on Ancestry.com) https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KF79-F14

Charles had a daughter, Lizzie Hackey, who married John Hughes in Honor, Michigan, on 06 November 1898. He was the son of John and Catherine  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FCND-S1J 

Lizzie later married ___ Soule, and lived with her son Keith in the 1930 census. She had lived with her husband John Hughes in 1920. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZQG-FDP  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XQ1F-TVV 

Keith married Gertrude Engstrom. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N3B5-RBV

Jennie and Joseph Lindgren had a child, Louise, who would fit your “Lowell Moore” daughter “Louisa Moore”. I don’t see a record for Lowell Moore marrying Jennie. In a shocking plot twist, Louise married Lowell Moore. https://www.newspapers.com/clip/16893094/louise_biant_moore/?xid=865 she died in 1922 in Wisconsin, which is where you said she would be. 

Charles likely died between 1882 aka around when Lizzie was born, and 1885, when the census was taken, unless they moved to Michigan during that time. If they did, the time frame is 1882-1893. However, I did not see him in the 1867-1950 death record results on Ancestry for Michigan. Therefore, it might take some writing to vital records repositories and historical societies before a proper answer can be given.

... and this is why I should never go through old G2G threads. I just wish the profile linked to this was open and not just green locked. Ahhh!

ETA: Lizzie was supposedly born in Michigan.
