Looking for information on the wife of Gabriel Hays, b. 1811 TN listed on the 1850 Yell Co., AR census with the following people in his family: wife, Mary J., b. 1823 TN; dau. Mary J., b. 1840 AR; Andrew J., b. 1842 AR; Nancy E., b. 1849 AR; and Wm. O.P. Hays, b. 1828 TN. Was this family from Bedford Co., TN? Could Gabriel's wife have been a Scott, possibly the daughter of Wm. and Celia Scott, also listed on the 1850 Yell census? The daughter, Mary J. is listed in the households of Nathaniel Scott and Wm. H. Scott in 1860, both of these men being sons of Wm. and Celia Scott. The Scotts lived in Bedford Co., TN from about 1828 to 1839.
