Date: 1897


Haskins, Haran. (grandfather of Harold Haskins) Marker is located at base of Old south Section OS-R-04. He served as a State Representative and was also a captain in the Michigan Militia, fighting in the Toledo War. Haran died in 1858 and was buried at Pine Lake. A new marker was placed in 1985 to replace the old, illegible headstone. He married Susan Hershy, the daughter of the first landowner and founder of what is now Rochester. Several Haskins relatives are also at Pine Lake. (His 45 plus acre property was sold to John Miller who built the famous round barn, call “Shenandoah.” in 1897 or 98.)
