Gencirles has a posting that Matilda McGahee Hayes, and Thomas Hayes of NC were parents of Arta Hayes, who married a John Geesling, and then Thomas M. Phillips. A son, Lee Hayes is shown, also Thomas Hayes. The posting did not show the contributor. Matilda's birth was shown as about 1795 in NC., but no date for Thomas, or the children.
I am most anxious to find the parents of Lee Hayes, my great, great grandfather. He is shown on the 1850 census in Hawkins Co., Tn, with Arta, 18, Adeline 28, Calvin 16, and Thomas 14. Lee is shown as 23 at this time. Also shown is Matilda, age 55. Gencircles posting shows Matilda's nickname was Tiddly.
Matilda is shown in 1860, Overton Co., TN. with Lee and Elizabeth Hayes, and their child, Mary J. age 1. Lee was shot at the end of the Civil War because he would not give up his mare. Columbus German was found guilty of murder and was hanged in 1866 in Overton Co. Elizabeth married Noah Johnson, later. I cannot find Matilda after 1860. I cannot find Thomas before 1850 in Tn. NC records have not easy to check.
If any of this sounds familiar, I would truly appreciate a reply.......Wanda Mitchell
