Soon after his marriage they moved westward, arriving in Kittitas Valley, near Ellensburg, Washington in 1883. Data is from his granddaughter Hazel Hayes Indermuhle.
Child of S
33. i.   JONATHAN8 HAYES, b. 22 February 1879; d. 23 February 1977.

19. SARAH HARRIET7 HAYES (DAVID6, ASA JAMES5, JONATHAN4, JAMES3, SAMUEL2, NATHANIEL1) was born 12 July 1817 in West Plattsburgh, Clinton County, New York, and died 27 July 1903 in West Plattsburgh, Clinton County, New York. She married ELISHA L. HAYES, son of BENJAMIN HAYES and SARA CASE. He was born 1810 in New York, and died Aft. 1892 in New York.

Notes for S
Allen Stratton, North Hero Island, Vermont shared with Norma Meier some of his notes made in interview with Corral Allen (grandson of Seneca Allen and Cornelia Hayes) in 1965, "Harriet Hayes, wife of Elisha Hayes, was a very good doctor - nurse - to all the neighbors. She came to his mother's home to get him and any othr boy available to go with her to collect herbs, to use for the sick. Corrall waid he was about 5 years old when he'd go with Harriet Hayes to help." Corral, who lived on Old Military Turnpike, West Plattsburgh, New York, was about 80 years old when Allen Stratton visited him and was living with his married daughter in her house between the Elisha Hayes home and the intersection of Bradford Road and the Turnpike.

Notes for E
Elisha was a blacksmith; his shop was located next to his house on the Military Turnpike, across the road from Weslyan Church. Sarah was the neighborhood "granny" collecting herbs, roots and remedies in the woods. She dispensed her medicines to ailing neighbors. It seems likely Elisha and Sarah are first cousins. Sarah's death record is found in Death Register, Town Clerk's Office, Town of Plattsburg, Morrisonville, New York; the record states she died at Meader's Hotel in West Plattsburg and she was the daughter of David Hayes. Son Edgar is said to have married and died "out west." Elisha, Sarah and son Warren are buried in West Plattsburgh Union Cemetery. Elisha's barn still stands in the year 2000, the boards so weather beaten that his great great granddaughter Norma Gierke Meier could pull out handmade nails with her fingertips. When son Leonard inherited the farm, he tore down the old house and built a Dutch Colonial on the site.
Norma Meier telephoned Luna Hayes Wilson on 10 February 1980 and took the following notes during the course of conversation. There are a few "mix-ups" in the conversation, never-the-less, there are important facts and clues also,"(What do you remember of Sarah Hayes?) I was brought up to call her Aunt Sarah; my mother called her aunt Sarah. I thought she was a sister to my grandfather, she was a Meader or a Minkler. She was a small person. I don't remember that she ever lived anywhere but at the house by the blacksmith shop. The blacksmith shop was on the Military Turnpike across from the church. My mother went there to visit Aunt Sarah until Leonard married. Well, I certainly do remember hearing my parents speak of Elisha Hayes! My father took his horses there to be shod. I had two brothers, one died this fall. One had a son, my nephew, lives off the turnpike. He said a Hayes lived just the other side of where I was born. This was a William Hayes, he lived on Rt. 3, his daughter married a Whitaker. He was a minister. (Was this William Hayes related to you?) No, he was no relation to me. Clarence Hayes is my nephew, my brother Roy's son. He (Clarence) lives at West Plattsburgh. I lived on the turnpike, at the tip of the flat iron piece of land. The house was burned down. There was a school near there. There were two houses between ours and the brick house where John meader lived on the turnpike. Before him the Storrs lived there. We are related to Storrs, but I don't know how. I heard my mother talk about Pattie Storrs. She would have lived a long time ago. There was a George Storrs too, I remember his mother. There was a Robert Hayes; uncle Robert we were brought up to call him that. I think he was Leonard Hayes' father's brother. (Did you know Leonard?) Can I speak freely? Leonard married someone named Louise who was Catholic. More than that, she was French, what they call Canuck French. After that Len never associated with any of us and his family didn't associate with him. Leonard was different. He'd stay up all night and sleep all day, wouldn't milk his cows till 10:30 in the morning. (Where did the Hayes family go to church?) To the church on the turnpike till Len married. After that they didn't go. I don't know where Len and his parents are buried. I suppose in that cemetery behind the church on the turnpike. The Larkin cemetery. I have a cousin, Myrtle Cutter, she was an Allen. Her mother and my mother were sisters. Her mother was Lucy Meader. i think she is clerk of that church. She could tell us about the family. My father had a brother. He was Monroe Hayes. he married a daughter of Mathew Meader. Her name was Etta. Myrtle Cutter was a nurse. She was retiring, I think in January. (The death certificate of Sarah Hayes says she died at the Meader Hotel in West Plattsburgh. Do you remember the Meader Hotel?) Well, yes. My uncle, Amos Meader, lived there. He was my mother's brother. His son was Ibri Meder. He was named for Ibri Minkler, they lived over at Grand Isle, in Vermont. My mother was from Daniel meader's last wife. See he was married first and had four children. My mother was the youngest of his second family. My mother's brother was David meader, and he went out to Illinois, to Joliet. I remember two women from Joliet coming to visit us. (Anna Eliza Hayes Goble lived at Joliet, Illinois.) (Your father was William Hayes and your grandfather was John Hayes. Do you have the name of your great grandfather Hayes?) Well no, we never went into that. But I was told my grandfather, John Hayes, was born at Jericho, my great grandparents lived there (Jericho is about 7 miles northwest of West Plattsburgh.) My husband passed away. I live alone. I have one daughter in Rochester, and - I'm 87 years old, will be 88. (When told Sarah Hayes' death record stated she died at Meader's Hotel in West Plattsburgh . . .) I don't think so. No one ever stayed there but the Meader family. I'm sure she died at her home, where she lived with Leonard.

Henry Clay Allen lived on 200 acre farm, a portion of which was granted to Samuel Allen (his great grandfather, a Revolutionary War soldier, in lieu of pay for his service in the war. The land was on South Hero Island, later named Grand Isle. This Samuel had been captured by Indians as a boy in 1746. He had seen the islands twice before, once as an Indian captive and again during the war. Henry is buried "under the big tree" in Allen Cemetery at Kents Corners in Grand Isle. His second wife Martha divorced Henry in 1902 charging him with, "great cruelty, intolerable severity and more particularly, the past 4 years, he refused, tho able, to provide sufficent maintainence for his wife and 2 minor children. . ." Ettie May Allen Stratton wrote on a photo of Weslyan Church (across Military Turnpike from Elisha Hayes' blacksmith shop), "where my mother, Charlotte Hayes, went to church."
