Notes

  • Family Data Collection - Births
    William Wiley Hays
    Father: Elijah Hays
    Mother: Mary Weaver
    Birth 10 Aug 1819 GA

    Georgia Cherokee Land Lottery, 1832
    William W. Hayes
    Number: 138
    District: 15th DISTRICT, FOURTH SECTION, CHEROKEE
    Residence: Craven's, Coweta County
    Comment: granted previous to the first day of January, 1838

    If this lottery record is for the same William W Hayes, he was only 12years old when he won this number in the land lottery.

    Most family genealogies providing a middle name have it as Wiley.William's great granddaughter Mary Ollie Hayes Hilger, in her familystory, says his name was William Wilson Hayes.

    In the 1850 census all the children are listed by initials only.  Thiscensus reports William's wife Mary born in Georgia, but in 1860 thestate is South Carolina, which appears to be the correct state.

    1850 Federal Census, Habersham County, Georgia, 4 September (?),District 12, page 116, Hse/Fam #78

    A P Hayse 6 M b GA
    B C Hayse 5 M b GA
    W R Hayse 3 M b GA
    D R Hayse 2mos M b GA

    All the children are reported as Male.  The child W R is reported asmale, but matches the female child named Rebecca in the 1860 census.

    1860 Federal Census, Habersham County, Georgia, 27 June, POClarksville, page 56, Hse/Fam #413

    John P Hays 8 M born SC
    Hendricks Hays 6 M born SC
    Arminda M Hays 4 F born SC
    Newton O Hays 8mos M born SC

    Note that in this census all the children are reported to have beenborn in South Carolina.  Yet William and Mary were born in Habersham,are in Habersham at this census and later, and in other censuses allchildren are reported born in Georgia.

    Mary Ollie provides some additional information on the names.  Shenames the children as :
    "My Grandfather, William Wilson Hayes, settled in Georgia and marriedMary Holbrooks to this union were born eleven children eight boys andthree girls. The Boys were Westberry, Albert, Chambers, Jasper, David,John, Hendrix and Newton (Dock). The Girls were Rebecca, Marinda[Arminda] and Fanny."
    --  Hayes Family History, by Mary Ollie Hayes Hilger (private paper,posted on Ancestry.com,http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/20492695/person/20016033936/media/1?pgnum=1&pg=0&pgpl=pid%7cpgNum&ftm=1)

    This list tells us the middle names of Barret Chambers, and tells usNewton's nickname was Dock.  She appears to give the names in order ofbirth, but this is misleading here.  In another list, where shereports spouses and children, Mary clarifies that Jasper was thesecond child.  It appears he was born about 1842 or 1943.  I foundJasper and his family in Baxter County, Arkansas, where his parentshad migrated.

    From this list I was able to confirm that the Westbury Hayes livingnext door to William and Mary was their eldest son.

    Mary Jane Hays 14 F Housekeeper born SC

    Two doors down from Westbury we find his brother Jasper, as William J. His wife's name here appears to be Mary J L A Hays.  Familyinformation reports his wife as Tennessee, and the 1880 census inArkansas reports her as Rachael T, matching Tennessee.  Perhaps thisMary J L A is a first wife who died young.  In this census, William Jis 17 and Mary is 14.
