Birth: Mar., 1875
Douglas City
Trinity County
California, USA
Death: Jul. 29, 1922
Placer County
California, USA

Ella (Eleanor) was married to Ernest Silas Hays (1874-1948) in 1892.
They had the following children all born in Woodland, Yolo County:
Myrtle Hazel Hays 1896-1918 Woodland, Yolo, CA
Earl Eli Hays 3 Oct 1898-1964 ~ buried Tulare Cemetery, Tulare, CA
Mervel Wilton Hays 23 Sep 1907 - 8 April 1962 ~ buried Weaverville, CA
Elmo Sladen Hays 1900 - 1989 - died San Bruno, San Mateo, CA

Ella was born and raised in Douglas city, Trinity County, California.
Her parents were:
Michael D. Smith born 9 Oct 1838 Ohio & died 9 Jul 1893 Eagle Creek "Ono", Shasta, CA. Michael was a gardener (1880 census)
Margerete (Margaret) Conway born May 1834 Ireland and died 26 August 1906 Eagle Creek "Ono", Shasta, CA.
Both are buried in Ono (Old Eagle Creek) cemetery, Shasta County, CA.

Ella suffered from TB and was a patient at the Weimer TB hospital in Colfax. I have not been able to find her grave at the Colfax cemetery. Both obituaries & Death Certificate state she was buried in Colfax Cemetery.

Ella's sibblings were:
Peter Dunfield Smith (1870-1938)
Lucy smith Murphy (1872-1958)
Henry Caswell Smith (1876-?)

This is my tribute to a Great-Grandmother whom I never knew.
