The Escape Of Lydia Hayward as portrayed in the Old Hay Bay Church website [see the map, too]:
[...story of an American family caught in Upper Canada by the outbreak of the war, and their escape. It is taken from a small book...entitled: Narrative of Mrs. Lydia [Barker] Hayward, including the Life, Call to the Ministry and Extensive Travels of Her Husband, the late Elder Joshua Hayward. Union Mills, N.Y., 1846. We pick up her story shortly after President Madison declared war on Britain, 18 June 1812.]
The biography of Hiram Hayward, Lydia's son, was found in the Portrait and Biographical Album of Sanilac County, Michigan:
Dr. Hayward is the eldest son of his parents, and was born in Jefferson Co., N.Y., Dec. 25, 1815. At the early age of nine years he became master of own maintenance which he secured entirely without assistance. He obtained a good education in common schools and by study at home under directions of his mother. He began to read medicine when he was 17 years old under the care of his uncle, Isaac Hayward, continuing with him three years when he lost his instructor by death.
He continued his professional career in the State New York until 1849 when he removed to Canada. He there combined the practice of medicine with ministry until 1866. In the summer of that year he went to Wisconsin with the purpose of making a permanent settlement, but found the selected locality distasteful and in September following he came to Michigan.
In 1867 he organized the Worth Christian Church and was its Pastor.
Hiram died on September 1, 1903, in Sanilac County, Michigan.
