Ella (Eleanor) was married to Ernest Silas Hays (1874-1948) in 1892.

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.
