    Notes 
    • From Ancestry.Com family history record compiled by Mary Beth Wheeler:
      “John W. Hayward was a Civil War veteran of 11th Maine Infantry, Company 5. He enlisted at Wesley, ME, age 27, 2 Aug. 1862 and was discharged after 3 years service 16 June, 1865 at the rank of sergeant. He saw service in and about Richmond, VA. He was wounded in the left shoulder by a musket ball at Newmarket, VA 7 Oct. 1864. His name is listed on the Wesley Town Monument as being a Civil War veteran. He is also listed in the 1883 “List of Pensioners on the Rolls,” Vol. 1 as a resident of WEsley, ME; wounded, left shoulder, receiving $6.00 monthly pension which he began getting 26 June 1866. While John was away in the War, his wife set up a schoolhouse at their home, she having taught prior to their marriage. His service record describes him, in Aug. 1862 at his enlistment, as age 27, married, dark complexion, blue eyes, brown hair and 5 feet, 8 inches. He was a resident of Wesley, ME then and later was made corporal (28 Sept. 1862) then sergeant (1 Nov. 1864.) Much of his military record comes from Committee of the Regimental Association, “Story of the 11th Maine Regiment in the War of the Rebellion,” 1896.

      John lived in Wesley, ME farming and lumbering until 1883 when he removed to Minnesota. The family lived first at Spencer Brook, Isanti Co., MN then moved to Otsego, Wright Co., MN in 1885. He lived on 2 different farms there and hired out in lumber camps in winter. In 1887 he was taken ill; he, his wife and children May and John Perlie moved to Glenwood, Iowa to be with son Frank who was preaching there. The change did not suit him, however, and he died not long after their move. His wife died 9 months after that.

      Both are buried at Glenwood Cemetery, Glenwood, Iowa.”
