He was buried in the cemetery at the center of the township

to Hariland, Conn.. in 1777- He was de-

with l)right, black eyes. He was a Revolutionary soldier,

Thr following anecdote deserves repeating, in this connec-
tion: ".\ trriain Oiiaker, while walking along a creek near

his way through, and found W'ashinginn upon his knees. His
lace was uplifted and ^nffused with tears.

At lliis linu' llu- Continental canse was at the last extrem*
:ty. 'riic in>()])s were l)arefoote(l and lume^rv, the treasury
depleted and all hearts sick with ]u)])e deferred. The Com-
mander-in-C'hief was makinj;" a desperate plea to God for the
trinin|di of rii,"-]]! and freedom."

As sliDwinj;- the straits to which the families of soldiers
were reduced, the wife of Mr. Hayes was oblis^ed to sew rags
•on her children's feet to keep them warm while tlieir father
was ser\'in_s;- in the war. This was told to one of her great
s^Tandchildrcn, now living, by her grandmother, a daughter
of Mrs. Hayes. Some action has l)ccn taken in relation to
\'alley Forge as the following will show:

Through the efforts of the patriotic societies a bill has been
introduced in Congress providing for an appro])riation of
$200,000 for the purchase and preservation of \ alley Forge,
where Washington and his army encamped in those uncer-
tain and terrible days which preceded the victories that led to
American independence. Fortunately this section has not yet
i;een despoiled by the changes of modern life. It is a beauti-
iul piece of country with glorious hills, spendid forests, and
all those variations of topography and forests which will
make a jierfcct pleasuring ground for the people. In addition
the historic points are well preserved, and many of the de-
fenses constructed by Washington's heroes still remain. The
.'calous students of history often spend days traversing the
country, following the footsteps of the patriots.

It is held — and rightly so — that X'alley Forge was a crucial
point of the fight for freedom ; that it led to the battles of
Trenton and Princeton which changed the ill fortunes of the
\var. and that today it is one of the sacred spots of American
territory. The new park will consist of about a thousand
acres, and the ultimate success of the efforts of the patriotic
societies seems to be certain.

In 1804, ten families left Hartland. Conn, at the same time.
The occasion of the departure from Connecticut was consid-
ered of so much importance that a meeting was held and ri
farewell sermon preached, and the general leavetaking took
place, as their old friends and neighbors bade adieu to their
late homes and started on their journey of six hundred mdes
for the state of their choice. They concluded to forego the
comforts of civilization and endure the fatigues of a six-
weeks' trip to New Connecticut, as it was then called, to
built up homes in a wilderness, not only for themselves, but
lor coming generations. Colour! Richard Hayes and his
familv were one of the ten families who made this journev.

and his three sons; Selh. Alvin and Richard.

Tn ilic niontli of June, 1798. Titus Hayes, then a yoiui"^ man
<it unusual enert;y. left Hartland, Conn., with the intention
of joining' a com])an\' of surveyors, to be employed on the
Western Reserve during that season. He came by way of
Canandaigua, X. \'., with no other companion than a faithful
dog, and with his gun, a loaf of bread and some salt in his
knapsack, he left Erie, Pa. At a place called Livingston,
Crawford Co. Pa., he passed the last cabin, and trusting to
his pocket compass he bore south-westerly and entered the
state of Ohio near the south-east corner of Richmond, pass-
ing through the territory now called Andovcr : he enterefi
the township of Wayne, near the north-east corner ; he swam
the Pymatuning creek, near the corner of lot twenty-eight,
on which Samuel Jones, Sr., his brother-in-law, afterw'ard
resided. He often said that he then admired the beautiful
lands in the neig"hborhood where he stibsequently settled,
and that he then formed the determination to purchase and
cultivate a nortion of them.

It is an interesting fact, that he must have passed near, if
not over, the grounds now appropriated to the cemetery
where his body w'as buried nearly forty years afterwards. His
was the first visit of civilized man to the interior of the town-
ship of Wayne. In 179Q the township was surveyed into lots
of half a mile square, each containing one htmdred and sixty

In the spring of 1805. Titus Hayes and Elisha Giddings
removed from Canandaigua, N. Y., with their families, on
sleds drawn by oxen. They reached Hartford, Ohio, in
March. Here they remained during the season, engaged in
raising corn and getting a stock of provisions for the next
season, intending to settle in Wayne the following autumn.
Accordingly on the eighth of October, with their families,
they removed to Wayne, and took u]) their residence in a
cabin erected on lot 33. which Titus Hayes had purchased
of Oliver Phelps. Titus Hayes lived to see his town settled
with a numerous population, himself respected and honored

From History of Wayne.

Titus Haves gave the griauid for three cemeteries, namely
Wavne center, Creek road, and Hayes road cemeteries. He
is buried in the Hayes road cemetery. He was a member of
the first Uoard of Commissioners of Ashtabula Co. in 1811.
He was appointed judge of the County in 1825, by the Gover-
nor of Ohio. He was als<» justice. He ran a woolen factory
and turning lathe. He was a meml)er of the ls\. E. church,
a steward and exhorter. Cousin Ellen writes: "I remember

passed Judge Hayes, who had l)een tip north to preach. He

Titus Hayes served in the Ohio ^Militia in the war of 1812.

"The mails entirely failing between Fort Stevenson and
Fort Meigs. Col. Stevenson called for volunteers to carrv the
mail through the IMack Swamp to Fort Meigs. Titus Hayes,
Dr. Coleman of Ashtabula, and Capt. Burnhatu of Kinsman,
offered their services. Hoises were provided with the neces-
sary equipments. The first night they camped on the Por-
tage river.- .After making their camp and Vesting for the
night, they were aroused early in the morning by distant
firing of gun>, and as they thought, an occasional Indian

ing of canuDU more and more distinctly as they drew near

Cautiously making their way thr<nigh the deep waters of the

after much toil and fatigue, they came to a halt at the foot
of a large birch tree, and :na(le prei)aratiou to spend the
night there. 'Vhv indications from the direction in which

cannon and small arms, and the hideous yells of the Indians
were louder and louder, and more fre(|uent. They, however,
remained in the position they had chosen, through the night,
without much sleep, and waited the result of the day. , Alorn-
ing- came and arrangemenrs were made for a reconnoissance.
Their proximity to the fort made it evident that something
unusual was in progress. Hayes was detached to go forward,
reconnoiter, and return within an hour to report discoveries.

Hayes, soon after leaving them near the birch tree, en-
countered the Indians, that were evidently numerous and
vigilant in the vicinity of Fort INIeigs. Shifting his course,
he soon came across another company, which he managed
to avoid, and deeming it a hopeless effort to again communi-
cate with Dr. Coleman and Capt. Burnham, struck straight
for Fort Stevenson, which he reached in two days, reporting
that probably Capt. Burnham and Dr. Coleman had been
discovered and massacred bv the Indians.

After four days without any thing to eat, and under ex-
treme fatigue and excitement, Dr. Coleman and Capt. Burn-
ham reached Fort Stevenson, where chocolate was immed-
iately prepared for them, which they drank and were soon
prepared for more substantial nourishment.

Soon after their return dispatches were received that dis-
closed the cause of their danger. Proctor, with a force of
some two thousand regulars, had advanced to a point on the
west side of Maumee river, opposite to Fort Meigs, and com-
menced bombarding- the lort. The hostile Indians were let
loose upon the surrounding country, to aid, by means of
plunder, burning and massacre, in subduing the fort and
prosecuting the war. After a considerable time spent in
fruitless efforts to take the fort, an armistice was agreed upon
for twenty days. Soon after, dispatches were received bring-
ing the cheering inteligence of the success of the army in
the east, in the vicinitv of Lake Ontario, also of the takincr
of York in Canada. These were at once forwarded by Capt.
Burnham. their postmaster at Fort Stevenson, to Gen. Harri-
son, inspiring, his forces, and depressing the ardor of Proctor

The following letter from Capt. Burnham to Gen. Simon
Perkins, discoveretl after t'ne above was written, will serve to
correct the foregoing.

Lower vSandusky. May 6. 1813.
Dear Sir :

( )n the morning of the 29th, nil., having business
from this to Cam]) Meigs, set out for that place in company
with Titus Hayes and Dr. Coleman. We did not cross the
Portage river until the 30th. in the morning. At about 10
o'clock we heard a lieavy cannonading in the direction of the
Cam]). We proceeded until within 80 or 100 rods of the fort,
and lay to, there being a very frequent discharge of small
arms, which we judged were tired by sentries in the fort. We
returned, as was su])posed, one and a halt miles, and lay until
morning when we moved some further back, and hid our
horses in the swamp, not as yet having gained what we
wished; namely, if ])()ssible to know more partictdarl}" the
strength of the enemy — to effect which, ^Ir. Hayes agreed
to advance, and if possible reach the fort. He left us in tlT^
swamp at sunrise, and ])roceeded to spy out more particidarly
the situation of the enemy. He advanced to wdthin a half
mile of the fort, and tinding hiiuself nearly surrounded, made
his csca])e, but was not able to reach the place wdiere we lay."

\'ery few men have lived a long life more respected as
influential citizens than "'rncle Sam" as he was familiarly
called. He was no aspirant for of^ce or places of distinction,
yet in matters of i)ublic improvement and the promotion of
the common interests of the community, and in the adjust-
nient of dififerences where interests came in conflict, the
judgment of no man was more readily accepted and ap-
proved than his.

Cousin Kllen adds :'*The American College and Educational
Society for the purpose of aiding indigent but pious young
men in their preparation for the ministry, was organized in
1 81 5. When the call came from this society for help, about
the year 26 or 27. my grandmother, not having any money,
cheerfully gave her dead mother's gold beads, the only article
of jewelry or ornament tliat she possessed. Her neighbors
and friends thought it sacrilege, if not positively wicked for
her to do so.

On Monday and Tuesday, May 26 and 2^, 1891, the society
held a convention in Plymouth church at Cleveland, Ohio,
which I attended. The results that have been attained by the
society were a new revelation to me, they were so large,
and it seemed so wonderful that 8,000 young men had been
aided in the i^rcparation for the gospel ministry by this
society. And when I remembered that in the early days of
the society my grandmother gave her gold beads to help
young men in their education, I felt as if she left me, in so
doing, a far more jircciotis legacy than any heir-loom could
possibly have been, and it seemed to me that the good ac-

came to me, in thinking of the amount of good that may
