RE: Jane Gillespie Hays Wilson
You are very welcome. I have always wanted to know more about your Nathaniel. The obituary is a good resource and will help your DAR application, as it says he was born at the Hermitage. I have recently turned in my documentation for the DAR on John McMillan, a patriot on my mother's side of the family.

Jane Gillespie Hays Wilson
Vicki I have been stirring around in this family for many years and have never seen a marriage record for Nathaniel and Elizabeth. Many decades ago my great aunt Lucile communicated by letter with various branches of the Wilson cousins, I inherited her interest and files where my first information came from.

In 2008 I contacted the Hermitage for information and was sent the Nathaniel Hays timeline developed for the Historic Structures report for the First Hermitage farmhouse. Many items on it are based on land grants, tax records and military forms, but also store and community records.

An entry for Oct 9, 1802 states - Brother-in-law Allen Gillespie brought a horse from Washington County in East Tennessee and "sold" it to Nathaniel Hays' daughter Patsy A Hays for $1; Andrew Jackson witnessed (and probably prepared) a "bill of sale" for the transaction. (DLC, 2)
I believe DLC, 2 is the source, but I do not know what it stands for. I'm sure it does not say brother-in-law in the source, but Allen Gillespie bringing the horse that distance for Patsy Hays I think would have to show relation.

You may already be familiar with the will of George Gillespie, Elizabeth's father, written December 14,1793, Greene County, TN. I found it online. It has a paragraph "to my beloved daughter Elizabeth Hayes..." and mentions young son Charles Hayes.

Also, I have a copy I made from an original letter written by John Wilson, husband of Jane G Hays Wilson, dated September 21, 1868. My quotations are as he wrote. I know it was a letter to my ancestor, their son, Solomon Hayes Wilson and his brother Nathaniel Wilson, but it starts out "Deare Sons and familys." Further down he writes "give my Complements to Mary an all of the children John Elinoer and all the rest of them Nathaniel and his family as this letter is intended for both famileys" Toward the end - "Your uncle Hayses family is about like they was when you were there Lavena is married William hays is preparing to come to your County and told me he would Call on you he may bee on the road now" I know he is talking about your Nathaniel, as his children were Lavena and William. This would show relation between Jane and her brother Nathaniel in my opinion.

I hope this helps.

T. M. Vance
I saw your post on T. M Vance.
Was he related to JOHN M. or W. Vance.

I have been searching for him. John's middle name was either M or W & I am not sure which.

He was married to Mahulda (Hulda)Hurst Vance. & they had 2 children.Synthia & Minnie Camilla Vance Whittington.

John & Mahulda was from the area of Franklin, Clay or Jefferson Counties of Illinis.

I do not know what happened to John Vance.

If you have any information about this family I would like to correspond with you. I have info on their children.

Thank you, Alice Hurst
