There is a Cage/Hays cemey on private land-un maintained a mile s of Little Yazoo on Hwy. 49. Penecostal church on left if one is traveling south. Cemetery is in disrepair and damaged . Is this where Harmon A Hays and Elizabeth Cage Hays are burried?

Do know Elizabeth has a brother Robert who looked after Hays children after parents died.

Thanks for any info you may share on Harmon and Elizabeth Hays and families.

Surnames: Hays, Cage, Hammond, Donelson, Jackson, Hall, Calvert, McMullin, Harwood, Lewis, Gallois, Carter, Compton, Westbrook, Singleton, Digmon, Merrill, Haynes, Jones, Bartee, Kendrick, Radcliff, Hutchinson, Powell, Tucker, Wolf, Mix, Liddle, Guyrol, Stephens,
This is what I have on the descendants of this couple, down to five generations, after which the privacy of living individuals might become an issue. Contact me directly if you need more extensive information.

Several of the descendants of this couple became quite famous, including Jack Hays, Texas Ranger and first sheriff of San Francisco; Gen. Harry T. Hays, CSA; and John Hays Hammond, mining industrialist.

Harmon A. Hays was the son of Robert Hays and Jane Donelson of Tennessee and a nephew of Pres. Andrew Jackson, who was married to Jane Donelson's sister Rachel. Elizabeth Cage was the daughter of Maj. William Cage of Sumner Co. TN and his second wife, Ann "Nancy" Thankful Hall. The couple is indeed buried in the old Cage cemetery in Yazoo Co. MS, and their children were raised by Elizabeth's brother Robert Cage, whose daughter Elizabeth Cage married their son, the afore mentioned Gen. Harry Thompson Hays. (I have photographs of a pair of portraits of this couple.)

Hope this helps!

Elizabeth and Harmon should be buried in VA were they died. Robert Cage lived in Yazoo, MS. He died in 1855, he was married to Lydia and Had several children including Albert H. Cage. They lived on Oakwood Planation and Jessamine Plantation. There is a very detained Cage Family Gedcom file on line.

Hello fellow researchers. I'm trying to find out how Harmon A. Hays received patent from the General Land Office for 79.84 acres of land near Mt. Salus from A. F. Donelson and President Andrew Jackson. Both men were his relatives and would have known if he had died 21 Oct 1833. Could his death date be wrong?
