Charles J. Bays, more than likely, died before 1911. His death may be recorded in Johnson County, but deaths were not listed with the state until after 1911. I have yet to find exact date of death, nor his gravesite or that of his wife, Mahala George Hill.
By the way, Charles was the son of Charles Bays and Susannah Kilgore. Susannah was the d/o
Robert "Robin" Kilgore and Jane "Jenny" Porter Green. Susannah was named after her grandmother, Susannah Walker Porter.
There was a Susannah Barker that married a Peter Bays in the late 1700's. They were relatives of Charles.
