Livingston/Johnson family
Lonzo Livingston was my Gr Grandfather, via my mom. Family has been traced extensively on my mother's maternal side, but the Livingston side has been "lost" in history. I'd love to have any information that I can get about Anthony and Susanna (Johnson) Livingston who had to be my GR GR grandparents. Thank you...Sally

RE: Swan

There are quite a few holes in what I have on my Swann ancestors - lots of unanswered questions. I'm sure about my grandparents, William and Ida. But there are some questions about the possibility of William actually being a Taylor from his mother's first marriage to William Taylor. There are several years between when she divorced W Taylor and married William B Swann.

Edward Swann, SR (1770-1850) - E Swann
William B Swann (1802-1858) - Sarah Taylor (Wildman)
William Swann (1848-1890) - Sarah Kathleen Haley
Mary Jane Ida Arvilla Swann (1887-1947) - William Kennedy

I would love to know if we are connected.

Which NIX?
There are a number of NIXes in the Northern part of Alabama.
....I have been collecting them, as well.
My great grandmother was Welthy NIX born in Bibb County, Alabama where she married 1835 before settling in Walker County where she had 13 sons daughters. 7 of those sons served during the War Betw States, 3 were killed, on came back BLIND from magots in his eyes while severely ill.

Thanks for sharing,

RE: Hays & Burns
Then, yes, we be distant kin.

Actually, thru Henry COUNTS, Sr., I obtained membership to Daughters of American Revolution (DAR)...but then ditched it once I learned their staff altered Henry's name to ....KOON.
...but of course, via Martha "Doll" Hays' line back thru Stephen D. Mullings (Soldier in Revolution) you would be eligible for DAR....
S.D. Mullings is well(!)documented.

Maybe you will consider sharing your Hayes husband's tidbits some time?
And even what you have on BURNS, too.

I'm also interested in the DAVIS line in Blount Co, AL as I can't connect David C. Hays's daughter-in-law Louisa "Eliza" Mary Jane DAVIS (wife of Henry Harrison HAYES, son of David C.).

Two of David's sons married BURNS:
1. John Peter HAYS, b. ca 1849 on October 07, 1868 married Mary BURNS (Memorial# 8857167), signed by David C. Hayes.
2. Thomas E. Hays (Memorial# 8857124), b. ca 1855 married Naomi BURNS

I hope you will stay in touch.
I'm in California.

RE: Stanwick Hays sr
As best as I can determine, Miles is not a son to Standwick Winston Hays/Hayes. Miles is not listed among the children from any of the older researchers I've communicated with over the years.

But he might be related in some other capacity...??

I am sending you what I have collected on Miles over the years with HOPES of connecting him to his family. Feel free should you be able to use any of it.
Hays is spelled in various ways, including Hayes, Hayse, Haze, etc.

From Columbia, SC Archives I have the 1814 Will of Standwick, Sr's father-in-law Henry COUNTS (Sr) naming daughter Catherine and husband Standwick HAYES (as spelled)...along with a number of court records mentioning Standwick in the settlement of Henry's estate.

Specifically, Henry had a son Frederick COUNTS from a previous marriage whom was entirely OMITTED in Henry's WILL. There is talk about about rents being paid by Standwick and wife Catherine on a farm given to them, but later contested by Henry's current wife Catherine FELLERS COUNTS, saying that farm was part of her dowry---and essentially was NOT Henry's to be giving away! The mother Catherine insisted everything be given to her oldest son Henry COUNTS, Jr (and Jr. and the Mom both died 1817).
(In The Mother Catherine's WILL she mentions granddaughter Margaret, daughter of Standwick.)

The entire COUNTS estate went to the 3 yr old son of Henry, Jr. named Peter Westley COUNTS under guardianship of his other grandpa Matthias HAIR.
After that, the minor children of Henry, Sr and Catherine (John, Mary, Margaret, Elizabeth, and Jacob COUNTS) the courts awarded to Sheriff Thomas Taylor CURETON who moved outta SC and died soon afterwards in Newton Co, Georgia.

We can't determine WHERE Standwick, Sr. was prior to his marriage to Catherine COUNTS in Newberry, SC.
My grandmother Louie HAYES descends from Standwick, Sr. via son David C. HAYS/Hayes who died about age 52 (land records where his land is sold following his death he is listed as "Davis" HAYS).

Thought you may want to revise your flower offering regarding Richard's daughter Margaret as she is linked to her parents and spouses on Richard Henry's memorial.
