    • Allen C. Hayward first appears as a head of household in the U.S. census in 1840 in Wesley, Washington Co., ME (pg.125). At that time, the family consisted of 1 male 5 under 10, 1 female under 5, 1 male 20 under 30, one male 30, under 40 and one female 20, under 30. This accounts for children John and Thankful H. An unknown male in his 20's was living with them at that time.

      Allen C. & Thankful appear in the 1850 census still living in Wesley, Washington Co., ME. They now have 5 children and 22 yer old Ann E. Pollard, born NB, is also living with them. Allen, Thankful & son John are all listed as being born in NB, while the youngest 4 children - Thankful H., Ebenezer, Louisa J. and Andrew J. - are all shown as having been born in ME. Ann E. Pollard later married Thankful (Smith) Hayward's nephew, James Gray, Jr.

      Allen Hayward ran a hotel/boarding house in Washington Co., ME called the "Hayward House" through the Civil War; son Eben took it over, then Eben's son, Lynn H.; it was later sold to relation Allen Berry Hayward, brother of John P. Hayward. He ran it for several years then sold it out of the family.

      Allen and his wife are buried in the Lower Settlement Cemetery in Wesley. There it shows Allen as having died 11 April 1883 at 79 years, 8 months. Wesley Vital Records states he died 11 April 1887 at 79 years and 11 days, giving a birth date of 20 March 1808. According to the IGI (International Genealogy Index), Allen C. Hayward was born 22 March 1810 at Pleasant Valley, York Co., NB. Pleasant Valley is actually is Kings Co.; it's not known whether the Pleasant Valley location is correct.
