Sadie Hayes aka Daisy Hall d 16 February 1957

Sadie Hayes was born 6 June 1881 in Hanover NH, the fourth child of George W and Mariette “Minnie” (Blood) Hayes.  Two older siblings had died as infants, but Sadie had a sister Grace who was four years older.  George and Minnie were granted a divorce on 5 October 1883.  Grace may have stayed with her mother, as they were neighbors in the 1900 census.  However, Sadie was raised by William and Almeda Hall.  Almeda had been raised as George Hayes’ adopted sister, so Sadie was basically adopted by her aunt Almeda.  Her name was changed to Daisy Dean Hall. 

Family lore is that Minnie “ran away” but came back when Daisy was a young girl and tried to get Daisy to go with her.  Daisy didn’t go.

Daisy is listed in the 1900 census in Lebanon.  Head of the household is Charlotte Kenyon, Daisy’s sister.  William and Almeda Hall are also in the home.  She worked as a “finisher” in a mill. 

Daisy officially and legally changed her name to Daisy Hall on 31 Oct 1902.  The petition says:  I was taken into the family of Mr. William Hall of said Hanover when I was an infant or about six months old.  I have lived with them ever since and have always been known by the name of Daisy Hall.  I know nothing of my parents except by hearsay, never having to my knowledge spoken to either of them. I desire my name legally changed to Daisy Hall, as my friends and acquaintances have always known me by that name, and by no other name.”

This action was probably taken in preparation for her wedding, which occurred on 26 November 1902, to Charles A Labombard.  The marriage was recorded in Lebanon.  Charles was 24, a quarryman, born in Ellenburgh NY, son of John LaBombard and Isabell Tourville.  Daisy was a seamstress, daughter of William Hall and Almeda Hayes. 

The wording by the priest regarding the marriage:  Nov 26th After having obtained a dispensation from the impediment Disparitatis (sic) cultus I married Charles LaBombarde son of John Labombarde and Isabelle Dourville And Daisy Hall daughter of William Hall and Almeda Hayes.  In the presence of M.E. Egan and S. J. Egan           M. H. Egan

Disparitas cultas means disparity of religion. 

They were married by M.H. Egan, Priest, at Sacred Heard Rectory in Lebanon.  Although Daisy wasn’t Catholic, she had promised to bring the children up Catholic.  However, Charles had a “falling out” with the priest when his father John was sick, and he would not go back to the Catholic church. 

In 1910, Daisy and Charles are living in Hanover, with the first four of their six daughters.  In 1920, the last two daughters have joined the family.   By 1930, the first four daughters have moved out, and only the youngest two live at home.  Daisy was a farmer’s wife.  In 1941, the Lebanon directory lists the family as farming on Heater Road.  Later the family lived on Mechanic street.

Charles died in 1955 while visiting his daughter Doris in New Jersey.  Daisy died 16 February at the Sullivan County nursing home in Unity, at age 75.
