DAKAN, Lucinda born 1827 married B. S. HAYDEN. She died in Hebron, Thayer, NE but I have no more info on her. Her sister Suzella DAKAN married George T. HAYDEN and they may have come to Hebron also. Families came from Ohio and Virginia, through Maysville, DeKalb, MO and on to Nebraska. Have lots of info on DAKAN family to share and would like to know about the HAYDENs.
