History of the Hayes family –

The Hayes family are of Scotch decent, coming from George Hayes who came from Scotland in 1680.
Daniel was the eldest of five sons, from which whom the Hayes familys of Fowler and surround townships descend. He was in Queene Anne’s war and taken captive by the Indians, carried to Canada, where he was kept in captivity for more than 5 years. They were nearly 30 days on the journey and at night he was secured by being placed on his back with each arm and ankle strongly fractured to a sapling, and with sticks so crossing his body as to be lain upon by an Indian at each side.
His sufferings and hardships were terrible but he possessed the faculty of making the best of everything. His kindness to an infirm squaw brought him better treatment until sold to a Frenchman from whom he purchased his freedom, and returned to his own people who had given him up as lost, married Abigail and settled a farmer at 27 years.
His eldest son also named Daniel left 7 children and his youngest son Enoch born in Jan 14, 1763 in Windsor, Hartford Co., CT, married and had 4 sons and 1 daughter. (Enoch married Mercy Holcombe)
Enoch, Helon, Beuonia (Benjamin?), Solon & Hadessah
Enoch, the eldest was a farmer and soldier, married Asenath Gillett, and then were born 7 children, the first dying in infancy.
The second Orlin Helon married Mary Hand (Hard?), both died in Hayesville Iowa and left 7 children, Third Morgan Enoch viz Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Joel Winthrop, Mary Roberts, Sarah Ann and Elvira
Beuonia moved to Chenango NY about 1820, married Nancy Bray, 1 child is all we could learn of, Richard Hayes.
Solon, born about 1795 in Granby, Hartford Co., CT, was a wagon maker, married Martha Eno – 2 children, Solon and Edward, died young. Solon had 8 children, some settling in Farmington and Middlefield
Hadasseh married Truman Alderman.

The eighth annual reunion of the Hayes family was held at the residence of Mr. Cal Barnes, Cortland, Aug 19, 1893

The eight annual reunion of the Hayes Family was held at the residence of Mr. Cal Barnes, Corltand, Aug 19, 1893. The day dawned bright and beautiful and everything seemed to pass in a very quiet way, whistling was the order of the Day and after Diner we had some fine music rendered by some few that could sing and play.
Our reunion was called to order by Mr. Frank Nichols after which officers were elected for the following year.
There was one death, five births, four marriages.
This year you will see what we have gained by Grover Cleveland being our president on last year only. To begin this year we are gaining four instead of two. It is not for me to say which Party we shall represent the year of 1894.

We have five births
Too marriages and
Too deaths

Minutes of the 12th annual reunion of the Hayes family

The 12th annual reunion of the Hayes family was held at the home of C. D. Hayes, Chadwick, Aug 21, 1898. The day dawned beautifully and continued to be for all that could be desired for a pleasant family gathering.
At an early hour friends began to gather from near and far until the yard was filled with a merry company.
While every new arrival was welcomed right heartily by those already gathered, by the time all had arrived the dinner hour was drawing and well filled baskets were brought forth which were found to contain all that was needed to refresh the inner man.
The call to dinner was responded to by 68 members of the family and their friends who did ample justice to the good things set before the. Still when all had finished there was many baskets full might ?????? been gathered up.
After dinner the meeting was called to order by the President Mr. Orlin Hayes and the following officers were elected: President, Orlin Hayes; Vice Pres, Mrs. C. M. Barnes; Sec., Mrs. C. D. Hayes; Treas., R. S. Trumbull
An inquiring into our financial condition, we find Aug 22, 1897, 50 cts in Treasury Rec’d by collection Aug 22, $1.40, making a total of $1.90 remaining in Treas. But while we see so many happy faces, still we see some sad ones too; sad because of vacant chairs and we write ??????????? of deaths and, one more name, that of

As the sun was setting in the western horizon, the friends separated going to their separate homes hoping to meet the dear ones again on the second Thursday in Aug 1898 at the home of Lyman Granger, Fowler O.
And so we passed one more mile-stone on life’s journey and looking forward can but say with saddened hearts, shall we all meet again this side of the river?

Minutes of the 13th annual reunion of the Hayes
Someone has said that time and tide wait for no man and daily do we see the truth of that saying demonstrated and again we find ourselves welcoming the dawning of the second Thursday in August which by common consent we have chosen as the day of our annual reunion; this time the home of Mr. Lyman Granger is chosen as the place of meeting and at an early hour friends began to gather from near and far with glad, joyous greetings for each other.
Passing through the yard into the spacious orchard, we find long tables ready to receive the contents of the baskets, brought forth from each buggy as they drive.
Soon those same tables are groaning (literally sleaking) with their weight of good things prepared by the ladies of the family. The call to supper was responded to by 84 members of the family and their friends. After dinner the company indulged in social entercourse and pleasant, cheerful conversation until the afternoon was well spent when the meeting was call to order by the President Mr. Orlin Hayes after the reading of the minutes of last meeting by the secretary, the following officers were elected: Pres, Orlin Hayes; Vice Pres, Lyman Granger; Sect and Treas, Clara Hayes. The Treasurer’s report shewed only 20 cts in the treasury after paying for the bananas and oranges bought for the day. A collection was then taken which amounted to $1.47. The treasurer was instructed to use her own judgement with to the treat for next year.
A table committee was chosen for the coming year as follows: Miss Beach, the Misses Gillett, Mary Hayes.
Even upon the most beautiful day, we see some clouds and the sun is veiled with shadows, so our lives are full of shadows and we find that there are as always some vacant chairs since our last meeting together.
In our list of deaths we have the names of:
Mrs. Hannah Hayes
Mr. George Hayes
Mr. Horace Burt
Esther Gardner

A son to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hall
A son to Mr. and Mrs. Orin Chaffee

Minutes of the 14th annual reunion of the Hayes family

Thursday Aug 10, 1899 rose clear and sunny and promised to be a fine day for the reunion of the Hayes family which was to be held at the home of Orlin Hayes, Mecca OH.
Tho the day was hot and dusty, the attendance was very good, number 82.
A bountiful dinner was served to which all did ample justice finishing with some very fine ice cream which our host had been so fortunate to secure for the day.
Dinner was scarcely over when the rumblings of thunder was heard and a dark cloud was seen in the west coming nearer the remainder of the provisions and dishes were hastily taken from the tables and carried to a place of shelter. This was fully accomplished before the storm first upon us with full force.
Some were fortunate enough to reach a place of shelter while others stood under the trees and what umbrellas were to be had and even crawled under the tables as affording some shelter while the rain came down in torrents. At last thee clouds were lifted and the rain ceased and all repaired to the house as the ground was so wet as to render it very imprudent to remain out of doors.
We were called to order by the Pres. Orlin Hayes and the following officers were elected:
Pres Orlin Hayes
Vice Pres Porter Hayes
Sec & Treas Mrs. Clara Hayes
The Treas reported $1.67 in the treasury while the expenses of today was $3.00. A collection was taken which amounted to $3.10 which $1.67 already in the Treasury making $4.87. After paying the expenses of the day we have in the treasury $1.87 with which the Sec is instructed to provide whatever is thought best for next year.
We have to record but one death this year, that of Dewey Hall, infant son of Henry and Lucy Hall. There were two marriages this past year, Virgil Gillett to Emma Graves and Beaman McCurly to Winnie Meek. Also but one birth which was a son to Mr. and Mrs. Burt Rumbaugh.
As some time yet remained those who were musically inclined gathered ‘round the organ and sang some of the grand old gospel hymns closing with the beautiful hymn “God be with you till we meet again.” We know not when that meeting may be; it may be in time, it may in eternity; and sometimes though we long to look into the future God kindly veils our eyes and makes each step of our onward way a new and glad surprise. Not glad it may be for the time, but when the mists have cleared away we shall see that Our Father knows best. And so we separate and go back to our homes fearing not the dark clouds that are towering over some of us but hoping God willing to meet again the second Thursday in August at the home of Rupert Trumbull, wherever that may be.
The following is a list of the names of those present:
Mrs. Chaffe Mr. Thomas
Adna Chaffee Mrs. Armenia Thomas
Orrin Chaffee Belle Chaffee

Minutes of the Hayes family reunion
We have heard it said that the older we grow, the faster the years flow. And indeed it does seem true for the second Thursday in August had come again. And it being clear and bright, friends and relatives to the number of 64 gathered at the house of Rupert Trumbull to hold the 15th annual reunion of the Hayes family. As the dinner hour arrived, we wended our way to the orchard where we found tables well filled with an abundance (as we always do at our reunions) of chicken, pie and other good things with very nice watermelons which our sect treas Mrs. Clara Hayes had provided us with.
After dinner was served we were called to order by Pres Orlin Hayes, following officers elected: Pres Orlin Hayes, V. Pres Walter Trumbull, Sect & Treasurer Mrs. Winnie Trumbull. Amt in treas $1.87. Collection $2.20 totalling $40.7. Expenses $1.98. Amt left in treas $2.32.
We look about us and miss some of the faces that have usually met with us, but we look in vain for they never again will meet with us here, but we know we may meet in the greater reunion above. We record the death of Clayton Granger, Herman Hayes, Mary Gardner and little Alfred Gillett
Blanch Beach & Cassius Reeder Blanch Hawley & Claud Gillett

Henry and Birdie Hartman and Will and Nellie Gardner each a boy.

We had with us Rev. Bro. Wood of Cortland, Rev. Evans of Mecca and Wm. Rosser of Mecca. Also Rev. Trumbull of Hiram; Bros Wood, Trumbull and Rosser giving us some fine speeches on the enjoyment we receive from attending the reunions and pointing us to the great reunion in the better world. We then gathered around the organ and enjoyed a number of good gospel by us. When we say good by until we meet again at the home of Lorannus Hayes on the second Thursday of Aug 1901.

Minutes of the 16th annual reunion of the Hayes family
The second Thursday in August 1902 (should be 1901, see note at bottom about next year’s reunion). The friends and relatives of the Hayes family gathered for the second time at the ever welcome home of Lorannus Hayes of Fowler Ridge. The day was all that could be wished. And the dinner hour brought the good things in an abundance. The remark was made that the Hayes’s were good cooks and well that was proven by the way the table was relieved of its burden. There were 82 present.
Officers for coming year:
Orlin Hayes, Pres
_______________, Vice Pres
Minnie Trumbull, Sec/Treas.

It was decided to have bananas for treat the next time we meet.

We record two births, daughter to Mr. and Mrs. Claud Gillett; also daughter to Mr. and Mrs. Thomas.
As we look about us we miss the smiling face of Mrs. Lavina Nichols who passed from our sight to her home in heaven, Mar 22, 1901. Also little Oneta, daughter of Frank and Hattie Nichols died April 12, 1901. And little did we know that so many of our number had met with us for the last time. But we wish we may all gather around God’s table in one greater reunion in the great beyond, And again meet those we miss here.
