From Rothert's History of Muhlenberg County, page 349:

Clarence B. Hayes - better known as “Peck” Hayes - was born in Hodgenville, Kentucky, July 23, 1878. In 1894 he moved to Muhlenberg with his father, J.H. Hayes. While serving as chief bugler under General F.D. Grant in the Spanish-American War he contracted tuberculosis, of which he died at his home in Greenville on February 10, 1908. He was a promising young man and a good musician. He wrote the words and music of a number of songs, among them “Mammy's Lullbay,” which he dedicated to John G. Barkley, Sr., and published in 1906. In March, 1908, Orien L. Roark, of the Greenville Record, issued “Some Verses by Clarence B. Hayes.” This pamphlet contains fifteen of his poems. Had he lived longer he might have achieved wide fame as a dialect poet.

[And page 350:] Since the death of Clarence B. Hayes, Mr. [Harry M.] Dean has been looked upon as the poet-laureate of Muhlenberg.
