Agnes H. Hayes

Agnes was a daughter of John Reuben Hayes and Malinda Narcissa "Sis" Coffey.  She was born on Jan. 12, 1895 in Arkansas, probably Fulton Co., and died on Jul. 10, 1978 in Everett Snohomish Co., WA.  She married Andrew Jackson Franks, Jr. on Feb. 23, 1916 in Fulton Co.

Andrew was the son of Andrew, Sr. and his wife Serena V. Benbrook Franks.  They were the parents of 12 children of which 11 grew to adulthood.  Andrew, Jr. was the fifth child and was born in AR on Jan. 31, 1885 and died on Nov. 13, 1965 in Everett.

Andrew, Sr. was born in May, 1847 and died Jun. 11, 1915 in Viola, Fulton Co., AR.  Serena was born Nov. 26, 1854 in Tarrant Co., TX and died Oct. 19, 1946 in Viola.  Both are buried at the Viola cemetery.  Serena's parents were Henry and Elizabeth Trayler Benbrook.  Henry was born in KY on Dec. 17, 1812 and died in Izard Co., AR on Feb. 26, 1872.  Elizabeth was born in Indiana on Mar. 15, 1824 and died in Izard Co. on Jul. 18, 1868.  They are both buried at the Spring Creek cemetery in Calico Rock, Izard Co.

Agnes and Andrew had only one child, a daughter Geraldine R.  She was born Nov. 2, 1917 in Washington state and died in Everett Feb. 13, 2007.  She married a Mr. Tackitt who so far remains a mystery to me.
