***** MISSING *****
Frances Blanche Hayes was born to Alvin Clark Hayes 1873-1934 and Blanche May Harvey Hayes Richardson 6 Apr 1886 - 21 May 1967. She had 8 siblings, including Alta May (Evans), Vera Rachel "Aunt Rae"(Barcus) Alice Genevieve (Mutchie), Andrew Clark Hayes, Gertrude Louise "Lovie" (Reeves), Alberta Ann "Birdie" (DeRossett/Potokar), Lois Lillian (Lutholtz), and Leonard Benjamin Hayes. Frances married Alva Louis Groves 1874-1966 in Colorado around 1929 when she was 14, and had 7 children: Alice Lorraine "Rainey" 1930-2000, Donald Dee Groves 1932-1950, Hazel Louise Phelps 1933-2000, Lorma Marie Marcotte 1935-2015. Ilene May Petty, Audrey Karlene Anderson/Beaupre 1938-1995, and Doris Ann Schade/Neu 1939-2001. It was rumored that she divorced Alva shortly after Alva accidentally shot and killed her only son Donald Dee but I have been unable to find a divorce file in Pueblo where they both lived. She left Colorado in the company of Jim Phye, who she met while working at Pueblo Ordinance Depot; and after several residencies with him, including Missouri, and California, she was last seen in his company in 1954/55 going on a picnic in Palm Springs, California. Frances and Jim were working for a wealthy family in Palm Springs at the time of her disappearance. She is presumed murdered, and listed in as a missing person. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Frances or any other information about Frances, please contact the Palm Springs Police Department in California or this administrator, since I am her granddaughter.
