About Margaret Howell Hayes

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=6662366

Daughter of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Varina Howell Davis; married Joel Addison Hayes, Jr., and lived in Memphis, Tennessee, and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Richmond, Va., Oct. 29- While all Richmond mourned, the body of Margaret Davis, daughter of Jefferson Davis, was laid to rest in Hollywood Cemetery today. The casket was placed in the Davis lot, near the graves of the Confederate president and his wife. An impressive memorial service was held at St. Paul's church. As the family had asked that the service be as quiet as possible, the ceremony was attended by little of the spectacular character.

Mrs. Hayes, who was the wife of J. Addison Hayes, died in Colorado Springs last June and the body was cremated and the remains temporarily buried at that place, pending the final burial here at a time which could be best suit the members of the family of the dead woman. It was the earnest wish of Mrs. Hayes that her body should find its last resting place in the family burying ground, beside that of her father's, the chief executive of the ill-starred Confederacy, and her mother, sisters, and brothers.

Mrs. Hayes was a woman of great intelligence and was prominent in the councils of the Daughters of the Confederacy. Despite the tragedy which had entered into the life of her father, she retained in mind or heart none of the bitterness of the great conflict or the subsequent reconstruction.
