According to the records in the USGenWeb site for Kendall Co., IL. burial records there is a Helena Hayes 1st wife of William Hayes born in 1817 listed. She is Helena Hayes , born 1832 died 27 Nov 1882 Plano, IL., 11/16/1882 SJ. If any one can give me more information about this woman it would be very helpful or her husband William Hayes born in 1817 in Lancashire England died in Plano 1892 from the way his obituary reads it could be my great grandfather. I have been searching for him for forever. Live in Michigan so I really need help with this if any one has the time to give. Thank you.
