Nephi Rudolph Hacken, 1912-1994

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 was born in Saltair, Utah, a community run by a salt company. The town no longer exists.


The Hacken home for a half century, from around 1945 to 1995, was in the suburbs of Sacramento, California.
