States: Nebraska: Hayes
Do you have any knowledge of your Hayes being related to Rutherford B. Hayes, the President? I was told by family members that "our" Hayes is connected to him, in some way. William Hayes, would have been about the same age as the President. I wonder if they were cousins. Where is Hayes County Nebraska? I know William Hayes and Sara Furguson, my great grandparents lived in Nebraska, but came there from Freeport, Ill. Superior, Nebraska, I just looked up where in Nebraska William and Sara lived. I hope that rings a bell. Maybe we are related. William and Sara had a daughter named Mary Jane Hayes who married Albert Smith, who acually are my Great grand parents.
Love to hear from you again soon.
