General Notes: Husband - Samuel Wallace Hays


He received the education so freely given by the Scotch-Irish to their children. He came to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in 1821, where he resided until 1825, when he went to Philadelphia, returning to the former place in 1828, which from that period became his permanent home. He then began business, which he successfully carried on until a few years prior to his death. He was an earnest, laborious worker in his church (Presbyterian), of which he was one of the ruling elders from 1840 to his decease. For a period of twenty-seven years he was superintendent of the first infant Sunday-school, which he organized in 1828, in Harrisburg, and only relinquished its care when failing health compelled him to give up his charge. The Rev. Dr. Robinson bears this testimony of him: "I remember him as a quiet, modest man and patient sufferer. The little I knew of him endeared him to me. . . . He was a warm friend and lover of the young, kind and genial in his intercourse with them, and an admirable teacher."
