Almeron B. Hayes died last Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Johnson, who resides near Cylinder. He was ill for some time with cancer of the stomach. The funeral was held on Friday. Services were conducted at the Foy undertaking parlors, Rev. Norman McCay officiating. The burial was in Evergreen cemetery.
Mr. Hayes was born in Illinois August 6, 1849. When he was twenty years of age his parents moved to Marshalltown, this state, where he resided until 1902, when he became a resident of Oldham, South Dakota. Later he moved to Tappen, North Dakota, where he continued to reside until a year ago when he came to Cylinder to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. Johnson. Mr. Hayes was married at Bangor, Iowa, in 1968, to Miss Mary Miller. Seven sons and daughters were born to them. One daughter died at Oldham fourteen years ago. One son Earl lives at Tappen and another son resides near Cylinder. The daughters are Mrs. Maude Friese of Bismarck, North Dakota, Mrs. Meyers of Tacoma, Washington, Mrs. Enid Arensteen of St. Paul, Minnesota, and Mrs. Sadie Johnson, who lives near Cylinder. Mrs. Hayes, who makes her home at Bismarck, North Dakota, was on account of illness unable to attend the funeral. Mrs. Hayes is survived by one brother, I.L. Hayes , of Streator, North Dakota, and three sisters, Mrs. Sarah Stedman at Winona, Minnesota, Mrs. Carolina Mott of South Haven, Michigan, and Mrs. Lillian Emerson of Lake Bluff, Illinois. Owing to illness they were unable to be present at the funeral. The daughter, Mrs. Friese, returned to Bismarck a week ago Saturday. She spent a couple of weeks with her father.
Mr. Hayes was unknown to many of our citizens but those who met him were most favorably impressed with him and regarded him as a worthy husband and father and a good citizen. The surviving members of the family have the sincere sympathy of all in their bereavement. (Emmetsburg Democrat, Emmetsburg, IA, January 28, 1920)
