Agnes DUGGAN and Walter S. HAYS were married on 12 November 1921 in Polk County, Arkansas. Walter S. HAYS62 was born in 1881.


The daughter of Ardena Hays Duggan, Agnes Duggan married 2nd, Walter S. Hays. Elias Hays' son Benjamin married Sarah Stevens in Feb of 1880 and they had one child, named Walter before their marriage ended. [I've found evidence that Benjamin & Sarah may have divorced] Although the family traditionally believes Agnes Hays & Walter Hays were not related, the possibility they were 2nd cousins cannot be ruled out, particularly given the age of Walter S. Hays in 1930.

I have a picture from my grandmother of a Walter & Minnie Hays, living in Hughson [Stanislaus Co], CA, 1948. It was with her family records. The couple looks to be in their retirement years. A note on the back says "the two old Hayses you saw one time". I have no clue as to relationship with my grandmother's Hays family.
