John Joseph Hayes (1825-1899) was an Irish Latter-day Saint immigrant to the United States.
John Joseph Hayes was born to John and Jane Hayes Hayes 28 January 1825 in Clonakilty, Cork, Ireland. At age 20, John moved to London, England here he worked as a shoemaker. In London, Hayes met the Latter-Day saint missionaries, was baptized shortly thereafter and soon left on a 3 year preaching mission. Hayes married Rachael Ellen Eleanor Wagstaff on 22 February 1853, while on the sailing ship "Alvira Owen" headed to the United States. The couple eventually settled in Pleasant Grove, Utah, and together had six children; John Joseph, Eleanor Jane, Isaac John, George Samuel, William Lehi, and Rachel Sarah Emma. Hayes continued working as a shoemaker in Utah, as well as spending his free time writing poetry. John Joseph Hayes died 8 December 1899 in Pleasant Grove, Utah, Utah.
The John & Jane Hayes of Clonakilty Family Organization (1974- ) is an organization formed to bring members of the Hayes family together, to further genealogical research on the family, and to share historical and biographical information on ancestors.
The John & Jane Hayes of Clonakilty Family Organization was created in 1974 by descendants of the family in order to bring members of the Hayes family together, to further genealogical research on the family, and to share historical and biographical information on ancestors. Through this organization, family reunions are organized, newsletters are published to communicate to family members on the progress of genealogical work, and various projects (including a grave marker for the Hayes family plot in Pleasant Grove) were undertaken. Although they have moved away from organizing annual family reunions, they do hold these regularly while managing a website to ensure that those who are interested in completing their genealogical work have a place to do so.
