Effie Harriet Hafey was born abt 1883 she was the 3rd child of Martin Hafey & Harriet Kemp, who only had 4 children.
Life looked good for this family and they seemed to be happy. Then Mr. Sievert Saeter and Effie started arguing and he moved out and into a hotel. He came regularly to visit and see his daughter.
This is where things get strange. Effie sent newspaper clippings and letters to the police and newspaper before 28th of April 1924. She was claiming Sievert was a difficult man and that they were not married and she was afraid of what that would do to her daughter Grace.
Effie's family was somewhat colorful here's a few records I found about her brother.
|This Effie's mother|
This young lady Grace S Hafey did not deserve the fate that was handed to her by her mother. She had her whole life a head of her. Marriage, children a career. She could of been and done so many wonderful things. This story struck me strongly and I had to share it because I don't want Grace to be forgotten.
I did not find a memorial for her on Find A Grave hopefully we can find out where she is buried and honor her memory.
