no help on Hayes, but probably help on where Elizabeth came from.
P. 867-868 of History of Seneca County, Ohio, published in 1886 has the following bio:
JOSEPH G. STAUB, farmer, P. O. Tiffin, was born November 18, 1825, in Adams County, Penn., son of Phillip and Margaret (Kuhn) Staub, also natives of Pennsylvania. Philip Staub came to Ohio in 1833 and purchased land near the old Fort Seneca, built one of the first cabins in the township and was a resident here when the Indians were removed. He helped establish schools and churches, and aided in the general improvement of the county. He ws a soldier in the war of 1812 and assisted in sinking three English ships in Chesapeake Bay. His children, who had but limited school advantages, have been successful in life and those living are among the leading farmers in the county. Their names are as follows: Elizabeth (Mrs. Hayes), decased; Annie (Mrs. Handley Tracy), Joseph G., Malinda, Agatha, Mary J. (Mrs. Sonders), John P. and James. Our subject {Joseph G.} was married in 1853 to Lucy Strausbaugh who bore him seven children: Lovina (Mrs. Ulman), Henry, Clara, William and Emma living and two deceased, Ella and Nora. Mr. Staub lost this wife August 19, 1870 and subsequently married October 30, 1871 Miss Agnes, daughter of Jacob Boner, an old settler and pioneer and to this union was born two children: Francis May and Sylvester. Mr. Staub has just build a handsome brick residence on his farm in this township.
