Could any of you help me with information on whether William Day (b 1780 in Morristown, NJ) may have died in Patrick, Virginia in 1804 or 1805? He was married to Mary Ann "Polly" Formby (b 1784 Pittslyvania, VA) William and Polly had a son in 1804 named Moses Day.

I am also trying to find out what happened to the infant, Moses Day, following his father's death - if William Day indeed died in Virginia about 1804? After 1804, Polly Formby Day was located in Georgia where she married William H. Moore in Oglethorpe, GA in 1805 and died in LaGrange, Troup County, GA in 1865.

By the 1820s, Moses was in Morgan County, GA where he married Celia Reynolds. I am searching for his location during his childhood/teens? If you can offer any assistance I will be very grateful. . . Lois
