My great-grandparents, Sarah Ezell and Valentine Hay Jr, were married in Henderson Co KY in 1838 (source familysearch.org). I have been told Sarah Ezell was the daughter of Balaam Ezell Jr (son of Balaam Sr of Trigg Co)and Sally Childress). I, however, have never seen a printed source verifying this info. I think Valentine Jr was the son or nephew of Valentine Sr who left a 1844 will in Breckinridge Co. Is there a will or probate book that tells who the father of the Valentine who married in Henderson and later moved to Breckinridge Co was? Or is there a Nelson Co birth record for Valentine Jr that tells who the parents were?
There is much about the Nelson Co Hay family; I think some of the descendants went to Henderson Co, or else Henderson was formed from Nelson. I'd appreciate anyone who has Hay ancestry from Nelson Co to contact me. I'd like any comments regarding my theories.
