So...disregarding my previous post. The David Hays b. 17 Jun 1785 in Cross Creek, PA and died in 1869 at Champaign Co., IL is not mine. He was in Athens/Vinton Co. on the 1840/1850 census and in Illinois twice on the 1860 census. So back to square one. What I know about Rebecca B. Hays - b. Nov 1824 in Lynchburg, Highland, OH. She m. Benjamin Puckett Oct 1842 in Clinton Co. They had a farm in Clinton Co. a short distance from Lynchburg, so just as likely records may be from Highland Co. There were a number of Hays in Highland Co. One David Hays was said to have platted the town of Lynchburg - he died in 1807 single. The marriages I've looked at connect to Virginia, not Pennsylvania as the census would point me. There was a Rebecca Hays in Highland Co. that m. David Foresman in 1837 - not mine - I think she was a daughter of George Hays and Janebethel (of Jincy) Johnson, if I remember correctly.
