Description

Excerpt from A Memoir of Prof. Benjamin Francis Hayes, D.D: With Brief Extracts From His Writings Ejohn Hayes, grandfather of Benjamin Francis Hayes, was born at Barrington, New Hampshire. He was one of a family of eight children, and was left fatherless when nine years of age. Subsequently he was appren ticed to his uncle in the adjoining town of Dover.

The uncle had a sick wife whom he was loath to leave, and the fourteen-year-old apprentice was eager to take his place. Unwilling to send to war one so young, and his own nephew, the uncle rode day and night through the country side seeking a substitute, but the able-bodied men, who had not special cause to remain at home, had been drafted or had volunteered.
