(8 February 1957 - 9 January 1966) (his death)
In 1957, Hayward married Floyd Eaton Chalkley, a Georgia rancher and businessman who had formerly worked as a federal agent. Though he was an unusual husband for a Hollywood movie star, the marriage was a happy one. She lived with him on a farm near Carrollton, Ga. The couple also owned property across the state line in Cleburne County, just outside of Heflin, Alabama. She became a popular figure in an area that in the 1950s was off the beaten path for most celebrities. In December 1964, she and her husband were baptized Catholic by Father McGuire at SS Peter and Paul's Roman Catholic Church on Larimar Avenue, in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh. She had met McGuire while in China and promised him that if she ever converted, he would be the one to baptize her. Chalkley died on January 9, 1966. Hayward went into mourning and did little acting for several years, and took up residence in Florida because she preferred not to live in her Georgia home without her husband.

I would like to see a photo of Eaton Chalkley and a photo of Susan Hayworth's two children

vinceSep 13, 2009

Eaton was my godfather. My father introduced him to Susan. On their first date they doubled with Dr. Lee Siegel and his wife Noreen Nash. I would very much like to be put in touch with any of Eaton`s family or friends.

We are in search for Mary Ellen Chalkley, who was married to a Robert Edwards. She is/was the daughter of Floyd Eaton Chalkley. We are looking for her as we are celebrating our 50th Reunion next month and we would appreciate any help you can give in locating her. She was a lovely friend.
