Description
A collection of material related to the Hay family of Wisconsin, Chile, and New Jersey.
Background
The Hay family began with Thomas Hay, who fought in the 22nd Regiment of the Wisconsin forces during the Civil War; during the war, he contracted dysentery. After the war, Thomas and his wife, Elizabeth A. Delano Hay, moved to Chile for the sake of his health and where Hay worked as a dentist. After Thomas' death in 1879, Elizabeth A. Hay moved back to Newark, New Jersey; one of their daughters, Florence, later moved to Pasadena, California, to be a teacher.
