Several things...The Hayhurst story goes that a Hayhurst man murdered his wife and himself.He tried to do the same for his children.Bad Guy indeed.
Second, there was a man named Joseph Hayhurst who married a Josephine Switalski, and a Wenzel Hipsch married her too.
There was not enough time to have the family which we call my grandfather Louis Warner Hayhurst and His sister Hazel as Josephine was married to the Petty family also.
So, here are two kids without a family.However, there is this story in the family and also in the Moon family as well, of this same story.Exactly.There also is a Moon Face lady in Saskachewan, Canada, who is Indian and was on a Reservation there.Also, my grandfather also never had a birth Certificate until he was about to go into the Army for WWI.So, any story comes...Since there is not birth record, and later there is records of this same Joseph Hayhurst in Texas and Ohio, and the Moon family that I talked with was in Texas and Arizona, this is more promising than the story about my grandfather and Hazel being born in SD.A Census can say anything that we want years ago.His father was called Joseph, Wister, Walter, and the list goes on.
What I really think happened was that there were several of us with the same families, as you and I are Clemmons or closely related to it.I also am a relative to all that you mention.So, there could be several families in the same fix.There is a Five Killer who is also known as Kingfisher from Tennessee who we also all relate to.Lots of families are relatives to that Indian.He was called the Fire Chief.He went from Tennessee to the Carolinas,
My grandmother quietly mentioned the name to me of Clemmons.We are the one and the same.It was my grandfather who was one of the poor kids.It is the Hayes name who we are, not the Hayhurst as that site loves to mention.
