Amos Bays(1803)>Amos Bays(1853-1860)>Oscar Bays(1885)
Looking for anyone with info on this family line. Looking for photos, et. I have info to share.
I have wondered if there is more than 1 Amos Bays Jr. being born 1853-1860 in KY because I have located about 7 marriages....Susan Chandler, Mary Catherine Branham, Esther Gillum/Gilliam/Gillen**, Sarah Emma Salyer*, Lavina Williams and Lucinda Remey/Raney.(* I have personal knowledge these 2 wives were married to the same Amos Bays Jr, Esther being my direct line.) He was a shoe maker and died as a result of a dispute over prices with William Lyons, another shoemaker. He was shot and died a couple of years later due to his wounds. He died in Carter County, KY.
Amos Sr b-1803 VA, had 2 wives, Mary Vance and Sarah Prater Jordan* or Sarah Jordan Prater....* my line.He died in Morgan Co, KY in 1858.
Oscar Clay Bays married 1) Delphia Brown Adams, widow of Smith Adams of Morgan, Magoffin and Perry Counties in KY. She had no children with Smith Adams but she had several with Oscar Bays. He would leave for several months or years at a time and then return...seems like he could have had more than one family. I am trying to find if he re-married? I found a census record with an Oscar Bays with a Lou Bays and family in Elliot Co, KY. Not sure if this is the same Oscar Bays
