Mrs. Kyes was born in Ontario, August 1, 1847. In July, 1867, she was married to John A. Kyes. In 1879, the couple moved to a farm near Elsie, Michigan upon which they resided until Mr. Kyes' death in 1908. Since then Mrs. Kyes made her home with her daughter.

      Six children born to the couple, grew to maturity: Dr. S. M. Kyes of Oshkosh, Wisconsin; who died in 1928; E. E. Kyes of Modesto, California, who died in 1932: E. Kyes of Detroit, Michigan; Dr. W. S. Kyes of San Diego, California; Geo. A. Kyes of Holbrook, Arizona; and Mrs. W. E. Allen of South Lyon.
