|Bcar||RE: Jaye Family, Fidelity, IL|
Thank you for the reply... no not related, at least as far as I know..lol... although doing family history has been difficult I assure you.. Have lived in Fidelity for years, and have always heard conflicting reports of the history of the property and Dr. Jaye... some of these include that he was called Dr in title only, that he died at some point during the civil war, and that George Washington Jaye was murdered when ruffians looking for Dr. Jaye stormed the union house and shot him on the steps on Nov 7 1864.. I also have an article from the Alton Telegraph dated Nov 20 1864 saying the troops were in town searching for Dr Jaye that he was implicated in the murders in the town... guess I just wonder what happened during that fateful month of Nov... would be happy to send you the articles and info that I have if you would like to share an email or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.... Do pictures exist of George Washington Jaye? I would be curious to see or learn more about his death.. I did find and visit his headstone from your page, and left him flowers... Sorry must end this msg, but will continue on further.. Thank you again for replying, and look forward to sharing any info I have and would love to know more about the Jaye family.. Take care.
