  • Notes 
    • Elizabeth D. Hayes kept herself as a lady all her life, and was known for a beautiful singing voice and piano playing skills. The family story is that she was not trained for life on a farm, and after her marriage was shocked to find herself living in a farmhouse with sawdust floors and an outhouse. Hosea took care of not only Elizabeth and the farm, but much of the housework and raising their four children. A photo which their daughter, Lorraine, has shows Elizabeth dressed in a long gown complete with a large hat and feather, beside Hosea wearing work clothes and tall boots, with their firstborn, Noyes, sitting on Hosea's knee.

      Elizabeth is listed as "Lizzie" on the 1881 census of Prince Edward Island, Canada.
