The Hacken family descendants now living in America come from the line of Carolina Galka, who married John R. Hachen.
Carolina's sister Maria Galka married Friedrich Scheffler and gave rise to generations of relatives in and near Kassel, Germany (with surnames like Scheffler, von Mackensen, Fubel, Mandel, Mosch, Bötgger) and in Vienna, Austria (Nikl, Hlavac).
A brother of Carolina and Maria named Wilhelm Galka is the ancestral forefather of relatives in and near Essen, Germany (with surnames like Altmann, Hanf, Monyezi, Kriegs).
Died 1935 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
