In Reply to: Re: Who was Marie Antoinette Hay Ringgold? by mary coleman of 212

Dear Mary: Well I did check my copy of "Ringgold in the United States". Mildred Schoch does mention that Marie Antoinette Hay was possibly the granddaughter of President Monroe but there's a problem with this. After the death of his first wife, Maria, in August 1811, Samuel Ringgold married Marie Antoinette Hay about 1812 or 1813 because she gave birth to her first child, George Hay Ringgold, in 1814. In looking at President Monroe's children I find that Eliza Monroe[b. Dec. 1786] did marry a George Hay on Oct. 17, 1808. As far as I can determine, they had one daughter, Hortensia M. Hay [b. abt 1809]. Another child would have to been born after 1809. If Marie Antoinette Hay was their daughter, she would have been three when she married Samuel Ringgold so this line is not a possibility. So far, I cannot find out if George Hay had a sister. Perhaps this is the connection. To marry Samuel in 1812 or 13 Marie would have to be at least 18 so that makes her birth about 1797-94. Let me know what you discover.
