Biography* Geo W. Hayes, Jan., 1884 as sent to Rev. Charles Wells Hayes and published by Hayes:

His father, Helon Hayes, removed from Granby, Conn., to Chenango County, N. Y., and thence in 1834 to Fowler, O.

"Here," says the son, "in 1836, I went to work at the trade of carpenter and joiner, in summer and fall, going to school in winter. Learning of the ' far west.' on the 19th of May, 1838, I took stage for Cleveland, and there took a steamboat for Detroit, where I waited two days for the first boat for the Upper Lakes, and landed at Milwaukee in the latter part of May. During this voyage the general suspension of specie payments took place, and most western currency was of little value; but I was not much troubled, as I had but little of any kind. During this panic, no bank notes were received in payment for Government land except those of the State Bank of Missouri."

He worked " at small wages " near Milwaukee till September ; "then hired the mail carrier to haul my trunk to Janesville, on Rock River, and I footed it, there being no way of transportation South, except to go down the River. So I bought an old canoe and slipped down the River, hauling ashore at night, and sometimes not until the dim light in the log cabin on the hill showed its twinkling light in the distance, —its inmates shaking with fever and ague, but always hospitable. But Northern Illinois was thinly settled, and I could seldom reach a place where I could get anything to eat. There was but one mill-dam to obstruct my craft for 200 miles, which I made in four days, passing Rockford, then in its infancy, now one of the largest agricultural manufacturing cities in the United States. At Dixon (then Dixon Ferry), a growing town, I hauled ashore and worked at my trade (at $2.50 a day), till I had my first introduction to ague and fever. In November, not being able to work, I went farther South for cheaper board, and at Hendersonville boarded and worked with a farmer till March, 1839. when I left Illinois for Iowa, [then just organized as a territory,] with nothing but what I could carry on my back ; crossing the Mississippi at Burlington, and Skunk River at Rome, (a town site with one log cabin on the hill,) thence to Jefferson County on the frontier, part of which was Government land, and the rest belonged to the Indians. Of this, Keokuk County, there was but a part of three townships belonging to the United States. Four families had settled here a little before me, (Aaron Hill, two Bennetts, and J. B. Brown,) and made up the whole white population. This was in March, 1839, and here I am still. I had Indians as neighbours until May, 1843 ; built a mill on the river; was elected the first Sheriff of the county ; have three farms, 544 acres in all, with good buildings, and am engaged in stock-raising ; three railroads now run across or along my farms, and two others cross the county."2

DEATH OF A PIONEER

At his residence in Hayesville on Wednesday, April 1, George W. Hayes, aged 78 years, 4 months, and 24 days. The deceased was born in Connecticut, November 7, 1817. In his boyhood he removed with his parents to Warren, Trumbull County, Ohio. Later he removed to Wisconsin and from there to the territory of Iowa and to this county in 1836. He settled first at Blue Point and later at what is now known as Wheelock's Mill in Steady Run Township. With the exception of about four years recently spent in South Missouri, he resided continuously in Keokuk County since he first entered it on foot from Burlington in 1836.

Mr. Hayes was closely and actively identified with the early settlement and later development of this county and held the honor of being its first sheriff, having been selected to that office in May 1844. He was married five times and is survived by the last wife and nine children, seven sons and two daughters. With the exception of one daughter residing in Oregon, all were present at their father's funeral. The funeral took place from the Hayesville M.E. Church on Thursday afternoon, conducted by Rev Wilson. The body was interred at the Pennington Cemetery.3

Anecdote*1708 In "Queen Anne's War," and when about twenty-two years old, he was taken prisoner by three Indians, almost in sight of his own home, carried to Canada, and kept in captivity more than five years.* The romantic story of his sufferings and heroism, well authenticated in all essential points, has been told in full in Phelps' History of Simsbury, Hartford, 1845, and in "A Long Journey," by the present writer, Portland, 1876. The substance of it, from Phelps' account, is given here.

They were nearly thirty days on the journey. At night he was secured by being placed upon his back, with each arm and ankle strongly fastened to a sapling, and with sticks so crossing his body as to be lain upon by an Indian at each side. . .In this manner they proceeded day by day up the valley of the Connecticut River and through the wilderness. The sufferings of poor Hayes were excessive, and almost without intermission. Subjected to hard toil through each day, with no sustenance save what the forests and rivers furnished, and deprived at night of rest, by the manner of binding his limbs, he had that to sustain which, in most cases, would have brought the sufferer to the grave. But Hayes, if he must be a victim, determined that he would not vountarily contribute to hasten the sacrifice. He possessed the happy faculty of making, at all times, the best of his condition. His cheerfulness, though assumed—his ability to endure fatigue and hardships — and his apparent stoical indifference to his fate, secured the good opinion of his comrades, and tended to lighten his burdens, and, possibly, to prolong his life.

When they arrived at the great Indian encampment on the borders of Canada, the prisoner was delivered over to the Council of the Nation, to be disposed of as they should adjudge. By their decision, he was doomed to undergo the painful ordeal of 'running the gauntlet.' Being stripped to his skin, and anointed according to custom, he commenced the course ; and after many flagellations and hard knocks received, when approaching near the end of the line, being exhausted and faint, he bolted from the course to avoid a blow from an upraised war-club, and sought safety by fleeing into a wigwam, at the door of which sat a superannuated and infirm squaw. He was pursued, but the squaw proclaimed the house sacred, and its inmates protected from injury. Her husband and only son had fallen in war; she claimed the captive, and adopted him as her son. She was destitute, and so infirm as to be unable to walk. The captive provided for her sustenance and fuel; administered to her wants, and devoted to her the kindest attentions. Thus years went on, during which he fared better, perhaps, than most Indian captives; but existence in his condition had few charms, and the future no cheering prospect. He was in bondage, compelled to adopt the customs and modes of life of savages, and deprived of almost every comfort deemed necessary by civilized people. Besides, he could entertain no reasonable hope of being restored to his home and kindred, and his life was at the mercy of savage masters.

He was finally sold to a Frenchman in Montreal, through the agency, it is said, of a Papist priest. His new master was kind, and allowed him many of the necessaries, with some of the luxuries, of life, of which he had been so long deprived. Learning that Hayes was by trade a weaver, he started him in this business, and by allowing him a share of the profits, Hayes was enabled in time to earn money enough to purchase his freedom. The good Frenchman not only emancipated him, but supplied him with clothes, provisions, and a half-breed guide to conduct him safely through the warring tribes on his journey homeward. The guide, proceeding with him as far as Mount Holyoke, pointed out to him the smokes of his friends, "the pale faces," wished him a happy return to his family, and departed to wend his way back to Canada. In about twenty five days after leaving Montreal, Hayes had the happiness to reach his home, and to exchange hearty greetings and congratulations with his friends, to whom he appeared almost as one raised from the dead. He had heard nothing from his family since his capture, nor had they received any tidings of him. His long absence had extinguished every vestige of hope, and he had for some time been given up as lost.

With buoyant spirits, renovated courage, and unshaken resolution, he set himself to the task of making up for the lost time he had spent among the Indians. His constitution, naturally robust, had suffered nothing by his long captivity, and his ambition had lost none of its fire. He married, settled down upon a farm, and within a short time became a thriving agriculturist.

* Phelps makes his captivity seven years from the fall of 1707. But his signature as witness to deed of John Matson, above, Mar. 6, 1708, and a deed to himself of Dec. 31, 1713, show an error of two years in this statement. The exact spot of his capture (witnessed at a short distance by a neighbour, Mrs. Nathaniel Holcombe) is still pointed out, and no doubt correctly, at "Stony Hill," hardly a quarter of a mile from "Salmon Brook Street."1
