I have ancestors in Warren Co, Ky during that time. James Hays and William Hays were brothers who served in the Revolutionary War. James first settled in Tenn then joined his brother William in Ky about 1803-5. Both had large pieces of land outside Bowlingreen on the Bearin River (sp?).

There's a "Hays Ford" there still on the map.

William had one son named Samuel. Samuel had a son also named Samuel. Second Samuel was born 1812. Both these Samuels moved to Missouri about 1818-1820. Elder Samuel was born 1794, married his second cousin, Sarah "Sally" Hays.

Let me know if I can help more.

Sincerely, Rog Hayes

Surnames: Hays, Blair, Jarvis, Bolton, Williams, Schornick
You have most of the info right. Thomas was married to Mary Blair, born about 1743. Thomas died about 1807 in Barren Co. Ky. His son William was married to Ruth, last name unknown. You had all of the children listed except Norris. Ruth married twice after William died. Her third husband was Comfort Fisher. I have a printout of Williams will that wasn't probated until after Ruth was married to Comfort Fisher.
Williams son, John P Hays was my GG Grandfather. Her was born in Barren Co. Ky. I have found the 1820 Barren Co. Ky census that lists William. John P. Married Lucinda Jarvis Bolton. She was first married to Thomas Bolton and had three children, Sarah, Jane and John A.L. Bolton. They were raised by John P. and sometimes they get listed as Hays. John Bolton married Priscilla Williams and his half sister, Virginia Ellen, married Priscilla's brother, William D. Williams. Mary Elizabeth Hays was my Great Grandmother. She married Henry Schornick. Her sister, Ruth Ann, married Henry's brother Jacob. Mary Elizabeth and Henry had 13 children, 10 who lived. Ruth Ann and Jacob had 6 children. Both Ruth Ann and Jacob died young. They have a lot of descendents though. There is a Schornick reunion every year in Oklahoma. I have gone to it three times. Most of them are my 3-4-5th cousins. However, I have found a number of seconds cousins, descended from the children of Mary Elizabeth and Henry.If you would like a printout or a gedcom of all of this information just let me know and I will send it to you..
