AFAJC. Crawley P. Dake
Major Crawley P. Dake of Romeo, Michigan Chief-Deputy United States Marshal for the Eastern District of Michigan, was born at Kempville, Ontario, September 15, 1836 to parents Gamiliel Dake and Sophia Garlick. Both his parents were natives of New England. He removed with them when twelve years of age, from Canada to Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence Co., New York.
Having obtained a good common school education, he went to Romeo, Michigian, at the age of eighteen, and was there employed as a drugists clerk in a store belonging to his elder brother. Subsequently, he became partner in a drug store at Armada.
In 1862 during the second year of the Civil War upon a call for more troops, he received authority to raise a company of men; he recruited one hundred and twenty men in Macomb County, and was mustered in as Captain, August 14, 1862. His company was attached to the 5th Mich. Cavalry, which rendezvoused at Detroit while organizing, and was the first full Company of that Regiment, which was under the command of Colonel J. T. Copeland. The Regiment left for the seat of war in Virginia in December 1862; it was one of the four Regiments comprising the Michigan Cavalry Brigade, under the command of General George A. Custer, which did some of the severest fighting of the War. Captain Dake was promoted to the rank of Major, December 31, 1862. He participated with his command in the following engagements: Hanover,Va. Huntertown and Gettysburg, Penn.; Monterey, Cavetown, Southtown, Boonsboro, Hagerstown, Williamsport and Falling Waters, Maryland; Snicker Gap, Culpepper Courthouse, Roccoon Ford, White's Ford, Jocob's Shop, James City, Brady's Station, Buckland Mills, Stevensburg, Mortons' Ford, The Wilderness, Beaver Dam Station, Yellow Tavern,Meadow Bridge, Milford, Hack's Shop, Baltimore Cross-roads, Trevilliam Station and Cold Harbor, Virginia.
On August 19, 1864, Major Dake resigned his commission at Harper's Ferry, and returned to Michigan to assist in raising another Regiment, to be known as the 30th Michigan Infantry, of which he had the appointment of Lieutenant-Colonel. After eight companies were raised, however, they were distributed among the 3rd and 4th Michigan Regiments, at the urgent call for troops for General Sherman's Army; and the raising of the 30th Regiment was abondoned. Lt. Col. Dake continued the work of recruiting men for the Army until the close of the War, when he returned to Romeo. He was married to Catherine E. Smith.
In May 1869, he was appointed by President Hayes, Assessor of Internal Revenue of the Fifth Collection District of Michigan and subsequently, when the offices of Assessor and Collector were consolidated, he was appointed Collector. This office he held until the consolidation of the two Districts, in March 1877. He soon after received the appointment of Chief-Deputy United States Marshal for the Eastern District of Michigan. In 1876, Dake had resigned his position in the Internal Revenue Service to run for the position of State Representative from Macomb County. Although the county had a Democrat majority of some 600 voters, he lost the election by only twelve votes. Dake, of course, was a Republican.
On June the 12th, 1878, Dake accepted the position of United States Marshal for the Arizona Territory, with his salary dependent upon the fees collected. See copy of Appointment to US Marshall.. It is one of the ironies of history that Dake was a man much more likely to be found at home with his wife and child, than carousing in a dance hall or standing in the center of main street with his six guns a blazing. Dake was more a bureaucrat than he was a gun fighter, furthermore he was plagued by the hip wound acquired in the Civil War which caused considerable suffering until his death. Dake, therefore, delegated most of the actual federal law enforcement to his deputies. He originally appointed Virgil Earp (Wyatt Earp's brother) to be Marshall of Tombstone, AZ. In January 1882, after Virgil Earp was ambushed and seriously wounded by Jonny Ringo, U.S. Marshal Dake of the Arizona Territory, visited Tombstone, AZ with the acting Governor, John J. Gosper, and appointed Wyatt Earp to clean up the territory and run Johnny Ringo out of town. Dake's time in office would be hampered by a lack of funds from Washington, and his ultimate need for creative accounting. This was never more evident than after the attack on Deputy U.S. Marshal Virgil Earp on December 28, 1881, in Tombstone. With his own deputy gunned down, Dake needed to fund a posse for Wyatt Earp, and he had no time to wait for tight-fisted bureaucrats in Washington. Dake appealed to the Wells Fargo express company and managed to secure a $3,000 loan to supposedly outfit a posse under Wyatt Earp. Late in January 1882, Dake visited Tombstone to appoint a replacement for the injured Virgil and to meet with Wyatt. According to later rumors, during this visit, Dake actually spent about $300 of the money carousing in sporting houses with the Earp posse.
Dake eventually left the U.S. marshal's office in July 1882, amid suspicions that he had not kept proper accounts and had siphoned federal monies into his personal bank holdings. In 1885 a federal examiner named Leigh Chalmers was assigned to investigate Dake's accounts, or lack thereof, and found that Dake had actually pocketed most of the $3,000 borrowed from Wells Fargo. Chalmers traveled to Tombstone and interviewed former posse rider Origen Charles Smith, who provided some interesting information on the Earp posse. Smith stated that Earp's men had each been furnished with a horse, bridle, saddle, carbine, six-shooter and rations and had been paid $5 per day, over a period of only 30 days. Smith further stated that Wyatt only had access to about $500 from Dake, and that Earp obtained most of the money for his posse from a fund set up by the citizens of Tombstone and contributions from Wells Fargo. The express company's cashbooks do confirm separate payments specifically made to the Earp posse for their Vendetta ride.
Although the federal examiner, Leigh Chalmers, found ample evidence against Dake for the misappropriation of funds, he was never prosecuted. Dake's influential friends in Washington, D.C., ensured the case dragged on and eventually went nowhere. On July 18, 1882, Zan L. Tidball replaced Dake as U.S. Marshal, but he continued to live at Prescott. In the history of Tombstone, AZ, the mention of Crawley was not very positive. It was stated that he would only come to help for the money (His salary was dependent on fees collected, so this was a fact of life but didn't leave a positive impression on the town folks).
Dake remained in Prescott where he managed his mining and business interests until his death on April 9, 1890. He died from complications of his old Civil War wounds.
From the Prescott Journal-Miner, April 16, 1890:
"Another Veteran Gone.
Although Major C. P. Dake had been confined to his room for nearly a year and a half, the community was considerably surprised yesterday afternoon, to learn that he had died, as it was not generally known that his condition had changed for the worse.
Early in the war of the rebellion, C. P. Dake raised a company at his home in Michigan, and was afterwards promoted to be major of the regiment to which it was assigned, and he made a record as a brave soldier. It was during an engagement that he received a wound which never healed, and which after all these years was the cause of his death.
Coming to Arizona, he was appointed United States marshal for the territory, at a time, too, when it required tact and nerve to fill the position, but the duties of which were discharged by him in a manner to reflect credit. Since retiring from this office, he has been engaged in business pursuits until over a year ago, when he was compelled to retire on account of sickness and has ever since been confined to the house.
The funeral took place this afternoon at 3 o'clock from the family residence on Marina street, and the remains were followed to their last resting place by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and citizens of Prescott."
AFAJCA. Charles A. Dake
The only child of his parents Crawley Dake and Catherine E. Smith was born July 21, 1860 in Romeo, Mich. and was raised there. His public school education was supplemented by a course in the Detroit Business College and when twenty years old he came to Prescott, Ariz. Here he served as Deputy United States Marshal in his father's office for about eighteen months. Then becoming interested in mining operations, he gave some time to this pursuit. Later he became a clerk in the general merchandising business of J. G. Campbell of Prescott and remained there until 1895 when he purchased the business. During the next five years, or until the fire of July 14, 1900 he successfully conducted his store on Montezuma Street. Though his possessions were destroyed by the fire he undauntedly determined to retrieve his fortunes and soon erected the substantial Dake Building. He married Lulu M. Kendall in Los Angeles, Calif. He was the proprietor of the Dake Opera House in Prescott, Ariz., which was one of the finest in the South West; with a seating capacity of seven hundred.
