Daniel Hayes - Daniel Hayes was living in Buffalo Prairie Township in the 1870s. He bought up mortgages and put together a ranch of 1600 acres along the Mississippi.
He sold this sometime between 1902 and 1912.

In 1909 he reportedly subdivided 100 acres in South Rock Island County and sold it off as building lots.
He and his son, Daniel Gordon Hayes, formed the Daniel Hayes and Son Real Estate Company. They bought the Rock Island Savings Bank building and sold farmland in Idaho and later in California.

After his father's death in 1917, Daniel Gordon Hayes continued the business, dividing his time between Rock Island and Chicago, while living in Rock Island.
The family spent much of its time crossing back and forth across the river, for there is as much mention of Muscatine in the records as of Rock Island.
 The son, Daniel Gordon Hayes, (b. 1886 in Muscatine) married Emma Blanche Munn (b. 1888 in Cedar County, IA) in 1910. They had a daughter, Alice Jean.
