Married Mary Jane HAYESWIFE


  • The first record I have found of Westbury Hayes is the 1850 censuswhen he is listed under his initials at age 12.

    1850 Federal Census, Habersham County, Georgia, 4 September (?),District 12, page 116, Hse/Fam #78
    Wm W Hayse 31 M Farmer b GA
    Mary Hayse 32 F b GA
    S W Hayse 12 M b GA

    In 1860, Westbury and his wife Mary Jane are living next door to hisparents in Habersham, Georgia, where he grew up.  In 1850 his age isreproted as 12, which would mean he was born about 1838.  But in 1860he is only 20 years old, meaning he would have been born in about1840.

    1860 Federal Census, Habersham County, Georgia, 27 June, POClarksville, page 56, Hse/Fam #412

    Mary Jane Hays 14 F Housekeeper born SC

    His date of birth reported on his death certificate is 26 August 1849. This is a considerable discrepancy form the census age reports.
