Mar. 4, 1947 Kansas City Wyandotte County Kansas, USA
Also known by a nickname of "Sam." Samuel was a son of John Hays (1829-1903) & Melissa F. Jacobs (1831-1909). Samuel married Martha Ann Devine (1880-1968) in about 1909. They had one identified son. Grave marker shows an incorrect birth year of "1883." This disagrees with all other reported birth years and computed birth year based on age in census data and at death. There are also birth month and day conflicts in various records. It is assumed his reported birth year (1873) on his World War I draft registration and obituary is correct.
