I am researching James H. Day (b 1849 GA), listed as the youngest child of Moses Day (b abt 1804 VA)and Celia Reynolds (b abt 1808 GA). I think that James H. Day may possibly have been born in Troup County before Moses and Celia left Georgia and went to Texas.
Moses Day was the son of Mary Ann "Polly" Formby (b 1784 Halifax, VA) and William Day (1780 Morristown, NJ). I do not know what happened to William Day following Moses' birth, but my records show Mary Ann "Polly" Formby Day married William H. Moore in 1805 in Oglethorpe, GA. They also show that she died and was buried in LaGrange, Troup, Georgia.
Something happened to William Day the year after Moses Day was born to him and Mary Ann Formby Day? Did he die in 1805 in Virginia? In Georgia? Did the infant, Moses Day, live with William H. Moore and Mary Ann Polly Formby Day Moore following their marriage in 1805?
I am trying to confirm that William Day actually died in 1804. I have found many William Days in Georgia following that time, but have not yet been able to confirm any of them as our William Day, father of Moses, grandfather of James H. Day yet.
I have not been able to find James H. Day earlier than the 1900 Dooly County, GA census where he is listed with my grandfather (age 18) as his oldest son at home then. If you can help in any way I will appreciate it very much. . .Lois
