Be sure to browse Nephi Hacken's book of illustrations: I Remember Utah

Once the Swiss Family Hachen had settled in America, the surname "Hachen" (difficult to pronounce in the correct Swiss way without causing damage to the soft palate) was changed to "Hacken." 

Nephi R. ("Cap") Hacken (son of John R. Hachen and Carolina Galka) married Leola Baldwin Jones (daughter of John Henry Jones and Winnie Baldwin), and the rest is history -- family history.
