On Sunday, a triple wedding celebration was held at Booth Lake, near East Troy--the twenty-first for Mr. and Mrs. Walter E. Green, and the fiftieth for their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Green of Eagle, and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hayward, these later anniversaries having occurred during the past year.

In honor of the occasion, a family reunion and picnic was held, and gifts of gold pieces showered upon the senior brides. Five of the six children of Mr. and Mrs. Green were present, with their husbands or wives, children and grandchildren, also both of Mr. and Mrs. Hayward's daughters and their husbands, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Green, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Turner, of Long Point, their granddaughter, Miss Margaret Green, and Mrs. Hayward's brother, Mr. Christy Ryan.

Ruth Ann -

This article presents an interesting issue for me. The obit for Margaret Ryan ( indicates she had six daughters, but only lists five of them. One of those daughters was listed as "Mrs. Charles Hayward". It also lists Christy Ryan as a son.

I'm wondering if the "Mrs. Harry Hayward" listed in your posting is the same as Mrs. Charles Hayward or if she is the sixth daughter missing from the obituary. This will take some more research!

As a matter of interest, two of the Hayward children are in this photo:

Mrs. Harry Hayward Answers Final Call

Succumbs Here Tues. Morning Following a Heart Attack; Buried This Morning.

Mrs. Harry Hayward, 77, one of Evansville's most respected citizens died at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday in her home at 313 South Madison Street following a heart attack. She had been failing in health for the past year.

Funeral services were held at 9:15 this morning in the home with a high mass at 9:30 in St. Paul's Catholic Church, the Rev. E. C. McCollow officiating. "Veni Jesu," Mrs. Hayward's favorite hymn, was sung as the offertory. Interment was made in Maple Hill cemetery with Joe Bodenberger, Leo and James Lay, Carl Wissbaum, Stewart Day and Dan Finnane, Jr. as pallbearers.

Mrs. Hayward, formerly Miss Mary Ryan, was born May 10, 1855 in North Adams, Mass., and when four years old came to Wisconsin with her parents settling on a farm near Leyden and later on another farm in Jug Prairie. She had made her home in Evansville for the past 65 years.

Mrs. Hayward was married to Harry Hayward on Oct. 19, 1873. She was a member of St. Paul's Catholic church, St. Mary's Sodality, and the Royal Neighbors. St. Mary's Sodality met at her home Wednesday night for the Rosary.

Besides her husband, she is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Walter Green, Evansville, and Mrs. Harry Turner, Long Point, Ill.; two grandchildren, Harold Green, Milwaukee, and Mrs. Robert Halstead, Hachita, N. M.; one great grandchild; three sisters, Mrs. W. T. Dooley and Mrs. W. T. Flaherty, Janesville, and Mrs. Kate Doran, Coon Rapids, Ia; and one brother, Christy Ryan, Evansville. To them is extended the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.

In the death of "Mother" Hayward there comes to Evansville and community a grief which is universally felt by all classes of people, not only in her own town and community, but all along the Northwestern railroad from Chicago to Minneapolis, for be it known it was the boys of the Northwestern who first gave her the affectionate name of "Mother" as a term of endearment years ago when she kept a boarding house patronized by railroad boys, especially telegraph operators, and watched over them in every way with the solicitous care of a real mother. And it is easy to believe that Tuesday morning when "30 for Mother Hayward" was flashed over the wires that from here to Baraboo and far beyond, more than one tear fell upon the ticking instrument which carried the sad message.

"Mother" Hayward was of a deep and loving nature. She loved her church and its teachings--she loved all humanity in a broadminded, libertal way, allowing all their own line of thought without criticism or contradiction unless such though was contraary to her strict code of morality.

Catering to the public as she has done for many years, there are but few men in Evansville, or employees of the Northwestern road who at sometime have not sat at her table and under her kindly ministration learned to respect and call her "Mother."

"Mother" Hayward, in her passing has left a place which can never be filled in the hearts of those who knew her admirable qualities and their name is legion.

Ruth Ann -

Thanks much for posting this obituary!! From it, I was able to deduce a wealth of info about Mary Ryan's parents, Michael Ryan and Margaret (Heffernan) Ryan. They are my gr gr grandparents. I knew her sister was born in Cheshire, Mass. but the fact that they had previously lived in North Adams, Mass. was new to me.

Thanks again for your efforts,
Craig Moseley

Harry Hayward Honored Tuesday at Family Party Here in Home of Daughter

Harry Hayward, one of the oldest citizens of the community who has seen Evansville grow from a mud path village to a thriving modern city, celebrated his eighty-seventh birthday here Tuesday when he was honored at a family dinner in the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Walter E. Green, 233 West Main Street, with whom he makes his home.

The out-of-town dinner guests were his other daughter, Mrs. Harry Turner, Long Point, Ill., and Mrs. D. G. Wood, Berlin. Others present were Mrs. Herbert Lee and Mrs. Margaret Halstead and daughter, Helen.

Mr. Hayward was born in Northfield, Va., Nov. 19, 1853 and came with his parents to a farm near the Tullar school, southwest of Evansville, where his father built thef irst fram house on the prairie.

He has resided in Evansville since he was seven years old attending the first school here which was then located on the west side of the city and which later developed into the old seminary.

As a young man Mr. Hayward assisted his father in a meat market here driving a wagon to sell meat throughout the neighboring country. He later became a mason helping erect three of the buildings at the plant of the Baker Manufacturing company and making the foundations to a large number of Evansville homes.

About the year 1900 he operated a meat market and grocery in the F. A. Baker building which business he sold and retired some 20 years ago. Mr. Hayward, despite his age, is in fairly good health and walks from his home to the business district every day.
