      Well, if you don't want anyone to know mother's maiden name, then I'd better shut down this site which requires a login to see any information.

      As to crediting you for the file - it's listed as being in the Joannne Roth Collection.

      I'll take the file down as requested, but don't understand the reasoning, especially considering much of the documentation and research is information I located and passed on to you.

      ************

      John and Ada lived at the Old Soldier's Home in Quincy, Illinois during the winter months from 1920 until his death in 1939. During 1923-1927 they lived with Harry Frances Hays in Webster Groves, Missouri to help him raise his infant daughter. John Collins Hays was born in Switzerland County, Indiana (location on typed official death certificate does not match location listed on hand written death certificate). His mother's name was Mary Jane Chitman. John Collins Hays married 1st Mary Jane Arnold, in 1873, marriage ended by death of wife in Aug 1878. Married 2nd Ada A. Woodall (copy of marriage certificate) 6 Oct 1880. Children of John C. Hays are John A. Hays b 8 Nov 1873, Harry C. Hays, b 4 July 1881, Arthur E. Hays, b 9 Sep 1883, Walter A. Hays b 7 Dec 1886 and Harry F. Hays b. 18 Apr 1890.

      John C. Hays was discharged from military service in Memphis Tennessee 1 Aug 1865, while serving in Co. D 93rd Regt. Indiana volunteers (also served in Co I, 93rd Regt. Indiana Volunteers). He was disabled by measles resulting in disease of the throat, lungs and heart. He contracted the measles Dec 1862 at Holly Springs, Mississippi. He was hospitalized at Holly Springs and later in Tennessee.

      In his later years, he was blind in one eye and had very little vision in the other, also suffered from bladder and kidney disease, requiring catherization for many years. He would have to spend many days and months in his bed due to the illness. His son, Walter had various specialists exam him, but none were able to help in the treatment of the disease.

      John Robert Hays notes: John Collins was a blacksmith and ran a grocery store, Ada was his second wife.

      Served in the 38th Indiana Regiment was 17 years old when he entered the Union army in 1861. His parents had him sent back home, but he only ran away again. He served entire 4 years with the North. He had 8 or 9 brothers who all servedwiteoderacy in Kentucky and Tennessee. He never saw them again. President Grant (then a general) is told, to have kicked him in the seat of the pants for stripping a pair of trousers off of a dead soldier to use for himself. The troops were poorly supplied.

      After the war he was a wagon maker and Artificer (a person good with tools/toolmaker). He founded the town of Lis, Illinois outside Newton, Illinois. He Owned a grocery store and blacksmith shop.

      A bum (Bob Stauton) came to the door asking for food one day and ended up becoming one of the family, dying in their care at the age of 95.

      1890 census - 6/1846 birth age 53 in 1890 - parents from Delaware married Ada abt 1880 she was born 12/1862 in Illinois her parents born in Indiana and Ohio (37 in 1890) 1900 census - Jasper Co, Wade Twp

      On the 1900 census John C, states that he is a blacksmith, so perhaps he owns several or at least a couple of businesses there in Lis and/or Newton.

      Jasper County was formed in 1831 from Clay and Crawford counties and approved on December 19, 1834. It was named after American Revolutionary War hero Sergeant Jasper, who saved American prisoners of war from certain death at the hands of British soldiers. Sergeant Jasper was one of the defenders of Fort Moultrie, South Carolina.

      At the time Jasper County was formed, it was primarily an agricultural community, and it remains so today. As of January, 1996 there were 772 farms (average farm size is 334 acres). Crops are primarily corn, soybeans, and wheat. Other agricultural pursuits include beef cows, dairy cows and hogs/pigs.

      The average yearly temperature is 53 degrees; the warmest month is July; the coldest month is January. Jasper County receives approximately 42" of rain per year and about 15" of snow each winter. As of the 1990 census, the Jasper County population was 10,561.

      Newton is the largest and oldest town in Jasper County. Because it was located in the center of the county, it was named the county seat in 1835. It was named after Sargeant Newton, who was also a defender of Fort Moultrie, South Carolina. As of the 1990 census, the population of Newton was 3,141.

      Interesting Fact (submitted by Lawrence Kestenbaum)

      For your "Did You Know" page, you might want to mention the juxtaposit on of Jasper and Newton that takes place in (I think) nine states. Either it's Jasper and Newton counties side-by-side, or a Jasper County with a Newton county seat, or a Newton County with Jasper as the county seat .

      The "American Heritage" magazine had an article about this, probably abo ut 25 years ago. Jasper and Newton were war heroes (Revolutionary War or War of 1812), and they did something together. A friend of mine reports that his Methodist-minister father has an expression of "like Jasper follows Newton".

      Hi,

      The "Heritage of Jasper Co 1831-1981" states: George Stanley Hayes - ..was born 6 Oct 1925 near Eldon, Miller County, Missouri to Daniel Hansford and Ida C. (Neville) Hayes, their third of four children two sons and two daughters. Stanley's gr. gr. grandfather settled the family in central Missouri a few years before the Civil War, originally hailing from southwestern Virginia. A large number of his descendants live in the vicinity yet today. His gr. grandfather, John Hayes, was a Union soldier during the Civil War, and his grandfather, George Benjamin Franklin Hayes was a prominent farmer/businessman of the Eldo, Mo. area.

      .......... Submitted by Edward Hayes"

      From the Sesquicentennial Edition 1985, New and Complete History of Jasper County, Illinois and 1884 History" by Glenn Sutherland "Lis - The U. S. Government located a post office at Lis in Sec. 20, Wade Township, in 1881 and as usual it pin-pointed the site of a little town. But the office was closed on Dec. 15, 1920 and thereafter the town received its postal service out of Newton. The original name of the town was Ft. List Station, then Lis Station and now it is just plain Lis. A man by the name of Aaron Manfort List owned the land at the site of the town and it w as from him that the flourishing little village derived its name.

      "Wm. H. Kibler, father of Mrs. Blanche DuHasek who helped with this article on Lis, owned a grocery and dry goods store and C. W. Riley, father of Mrs. Harry Clark who gave additional name and facts, had a hardware store. John Clark had a blacksmith shop and John Hays, a Civil War veteran, owned a general store in the first floor of a large two storied building. The upper floor was a hall where the Modern Woodman and the Rebeccas held meetings and where dances were frequently given. Everett and Logan Warfel also had a general store. There was a large hay barn to store the tons of hay shipped into the cotton fields of the south by Jim Frakes who was a hay buyer in Lis, and by Houser and Sutton from Newton who also shipped hay into the south.

      "But time seems to be hurrying past the little town of Lis and today it seems to be but a mere shadow of its former self. The Kennedy Grain Elevator with a limestone loading dock and a Standard Liquid Fertilizer station, a garage and a service station owned by Donald Lewis, a vacant old store building and five houses comprise the town of Lis today."

      I can tell you that I've never seen a two story building in Lis, and I graduated in '67 from Newton High. My sister lives very near Lis, so I know this area well (the last paragraph though written in 1974 sums up the area still minus the service station).

      Hope this helps you.
      Let me know.

      Hi Jane! Thanks so much for your quick reply to my query. That is the first concrete evidence to back up family tradition that we have been able to find in more than 10 years.

      So far no qualifying direct line family members in my genealogy to qualify me for DAR. My daughter's recently filed application on her Cochran side, husband's mother and sister were members through their Forsyth(e) side, my step son's may or may not be able to apply for SAR depending on dispute over early Oldham lineage. I keep hitting brick walls on my direct li neage - father's side arrived US about 1880, mother's side keeps hiding. Have only been able to trace back to 1890's - gets frustrating at times.

      Got your message on the Histories for Jasper County, Illinois this afternoon. Think the first Hays family is a different line. John Hays line we a researching for has tradition of coming from Delaware through Kentucky or Tennessee to Indiana before the start of the Civil War. A letter from my Uncle and conversations with my mother over the years, both have stated John had 6 or 7 brothers who fought for the CSA, but John fought in 38th Indiana Inf. However, we now feel it was actually the 38th Illinois Infantry. We have determined his second wife was Ada Woodall (formerly his housekeeper) and that she was born in Illinois. There were several family members in Brown ounty, Indiana, however, Brown County Records have been of no assistance. Have not been able to find a record of our John Hays in Indiana.

      With the exception of family tradition; the 1890 Census for Jasper County, Illinois and your message today, are the only confirmation or verification of any type we have to prove the man we have a picture of actually existed! Am beginning to think he was placed here by alien forces!?!?!?! ?! I have forwarded your message to my sister (who is also helping in this ongoing project). I'd be glad to send you what little information we have on this line.

      Haysville - Laid out February, 1858, on Section 21, in Grove Township. It might have made a town, had not Mr. A.G. Caldwell, Sr., bought the land and laid out his large farm over it. A man by the name of Hays once started a store and run it for awhile in the town.

      List - Is not a town, but a post-office on the S.,E. & S.E.R.R., six miles northwest of Newton. No town laid out and no houses to put on the lots if there were any lots.

      F.A. Battery & Co., Chicago 1884

      Wheeler - (First platted as Mason), eight and one-half miles west, and three and one-half miles north of Newton, in North Muddy Township, on the S., E. & S.E.R.R., was laid out about a year ago, by Mrs. Nancy J. Carter (the town was named in honor of Mrs. Carter's first husband, who first improved the land on which the town is located, but who died while in the army, in the fall of 1861). They have now sixty-nine inhabitants, two large two-story store houses, where is kept a large stock of merchandise, one drug store, one agricultural implement house, one blacksmith shop, one silversmith shop, one boarding house, one brick kiln and large flouring-mill to be put up this season. The town is surrounded by as rich a soil as we have in the county, and if nothing happens the town, it will be quite a little city in a short time.



      John Collins HAYS, b. June, 29 1844, Switzerland Co., IN. He d. March 11, 1939, 8:20 am., 94 yrs. 8 mo., 3, days, bur: Mar. 13, 1939, Newton Jasper Co., ILL, Riverside Cemetery, (of caris renal disease - cronic nephritis) with Ada Alice WOODALL Hays, who states on his death
      certificate that he worked as a Blacksmith for 45 years, last working in 1905. It is said that he was always talking about wanting to out live his sister (Susan) who had lived to a very elder age.

      He is suppose to also have had a sister by the name of Sarah but I find no record as yet...

      He was first married to #1 Mary Jane ARNOLD she died Aug 1878. {{HAYS, John C. - Marriage Wife: Mary J. ARNOLD Marriage Date: Dec. 05, 1872 Recorded in: Effingham, Illinois Source: FHL Number 1010047 Dates: 1839-1877}} Wife
      #2 was Ada Alice WOODALL., m. Oct. 6, 1880, she was b. Dec. 1862, ILL. ((her par: Dad - Francis Woodall; b. Indiana and Mom, Mary ROBERTS, b. Ohio. Ada A Woodall was John Collin Hays? and his first wife?s housekeeper before her death, and Ada Alice died July 6, 1948, age 85 yrs. 7 mo. 5 days, Newton, Jasper Co., ILL. On this census 1900 it states that they have been married 20 years.)) John C. appears on 1900 census for Jasper Co., Wade Twp. ILL. as a
      Blacksmith, stating that both of his parents were born in Delaware.

      John C. Hays was discharged from military service in Memphis, Tennessee Aug. 1 1865, while serving in Co. D. 93rd Regt. Indiana Volunteers (also served in Co I, 93rd Regt. Indiana Volunteers). He was disabled by measles resulting in disease of the throat, lungs and heart. He
      contracted the measles Dec 1862 at Holly Springs, Mississippi. He was hospitalized at Holly Springs and later in Tennessee.

      In his later years, he was blind in one eye and had very little vision in the other, also suffered from bladder and kidney disease, requiring catheterization for many years. He would have to spend many days and months in his bed due to the illness. His son, Walter had various specialists exam him, but none were able to help in the treatment of the disease.

      He lived in Newton ILL, and established and founded the town of List, ILL, Ft. List Station, then Lis Station and now it is just plain Lis (there is also a Haysville ILL, in the same county that his father may have helped to establish) which are both in Jasper Co., ILL.

      His Grandson, John Robert Hays reported that he was from Kentucky (but we now know he was from Switzerland Co., IN, which is on the KY boarder) and had seven brothers that fought for the South during the Civil War, and that he was the only one that served with the North and that the other seven brothers were never heard of again, but this census states that his parents were born in Delaware and he was born in Indiana. It is also reported that General Grant kicked him in the seat of the pants because he stripped a pair of pants off a dead soldier because he had none. John Collin Hays, is reported to have said, when asked about what he would have done had he met his Rebel brothers in battle, he stated, ?I would have killed the sons-a-bitches just like any of the rest of them?.

      He was a very handsome looking man, at about 6?6?, with a goatee, and was a very gentle man, although it is reported that he had many affairs, and his granddaughter, Helen Osborne, reports that he was actually a very distant and brutal man.

      He is also supposed to have owned a grocery store in the Newton, ILL area besides also being a blacksmith.

      The 1900 census states that Ada has four living children but only three appear on this census. Harvey Collins Hays their other son, was the eldest and moved away by that time. On this census, living with John Collins and Ada, is an Ollie M. IVENS a Widow. This Ollie Ivens, is actually Ada?s sister, and she was also married to the one that was called Uncle George SHELLY, (George was a very bad man and should be remembered so through history) of Champagne, IL. he was an engineer for the Central, ILL Railroad.

      Ada Alice Woodall HAYS is also to have had another sister Nan Woodall NULL, m. to John NULL that settled in Chickasha, or Ninshaw, OK.

      Helen Osborn says that John Collins was a very hard hearted man.
