The connection is thru the husband of Sarah Farnum, Benjamin Abbott son of George Abbott and Hannah Chandler. Hannah was the daughter of William Chandler and Annis Bayford.I believe it is thru one of Hannah's brothers which is not my direct line but a colateral line.If you will supply me with your e-mail address I will send you the Cover page of the book Descendants of "William and Annis Chandler" who settled in Roxbury, Mass.1637.I was able to copy this book which is in the local genealogy library here in Burbank.
That library, the Southern California Genealogical Society Library is closed until after the holidays.When it opens, I will copy the pages pertinent to the Hayes connection.
I have not taken the time to research further but I think this line also goes to the Chandler family who once owned the Lost Angeles Times.There is quite a history there, but because it was not the direct line, I did not do any further research.
I am so glad to hear from you and hope I can be of help to you.
