Timothy J Hayes(1853-1925) was originally from West Cork. He gives two different dates of arrival in US as 1873 and 1886, so he had possibly made a trip back to Ireland. He operated as a very successful printer in Brooklyn before establishing the T.J.Hayes Printing Co in 1907 of which he was President. This business was a Theatrical and Commercial Printers with Moving Pictures, Pictorial and Descriptive Work a speciality and operated from The Hellmuth Building, No 154 West 18th Street and employing about 27 staff. Timothy Hayes was well known in Democratic political circles. He had a number of associates in his printing business including Thomas F Ahearn (1885-1916), son of John F Ahearn, a State Senator and Manhattan Borough President. Later John F Ahearn became Treasurer of the T.J. Hayes Printing Co. Timothy Hayes was involved with the American Irish Historical Society and was also a member of The Friendly Sons of St Patrick, New York. Timothy J Hayes married Anna C Mulry and had 3 sons and 3 daughters: Mrs Thomas Murtagh, Margaret, John, Hortense, Thomas and Gerald. I have found him in the New York and State census. He is my great-great uncle. I am hoping to find someone else interested in this family as to date I am not in contact with any descendants. His nephew, and my great-uncle Con (Cornelius) Hayes (1875-1938) joined him in Brooklyn as a young immigrant to New York, attended art school and became a designer at Tiffanys, New York before establishing his own art and design business in New York. I have researched Con Hayes in Brooklyn in some detail and have a great deal of information about him. Any ideas about furthering this research into Timothy J Hayes and his New York printing business would be welcome.
