I'm researching my ancestor Permelia Delay, wife of John Mace. They moved from Virginia to Bourbon County, KY around 1793. Then in 1818 they moved to Ralls County, MO. I'm a descendant of their daughter Catherine, who married Aaron Van Vickle. They lived in Hancock County, IL from about 1837 to about 1852. Aaron died sometime before 1850 then Catherine moved to Grant Co., WI to be near her sister's family.

Do you know if your ancestor James Delay moved to Hancock County to be near other relatives? Is he related to the Delays of Ross County, OH? I think that these Delays of Ross County originated in Bourbon County, KY before moving to Ohio. The Van Vickles also originated in Ross County/Pickaway County before moving West.
