McCain Defeats Hayworth in Race for Senate

Senator John McCain has defeated J. D. Hayworth in the race for his senate seat in Arizona. With 96% of the votes in, McCain leads Hayworth by a huge margin, 56% to 32%. J.D. Hayworth, former United States Congressman is linked to the Briles Surname through marriage of course, but in two ways. Raymond and Red's mother was Mary Emma Hepler Hayworth. Her lineage dates back to Christopher Friederich Hepler (her great grandfather) who had two sons: Phillip, her grandfather and Christopher (great uncle). Christopher had a son named John Hepler who married Hannah Briles, daughter of Jacob & Susanna Plummer Briles. The second link is via "Red" and Raymond's sister Alice Hayworth who married Ernest Macon. His parents are Ashworth & Flora Spencer Macon whose parents are Michael & Anna Jane Hill Spencer. These fine folks had a daughter, Roxanna, who married my very own Joseph Lafayette Briles!
