Isaac Kay, M.D., of Springfield Ohio, published a Kay Family Record in 1878. Dr. Kay indicated in a letter written in approximately 1907 that he had letters from his great-uncle William Kay of Hopewell Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania and authoritative manucript papers from relatives in southwestern Ohio. [Brown and Highland Counties]
Dr. Kay used this material to prepare the Kay Family Record. Mrs. Julian C. Lane used Dr. Kay's information in her book, Key and Allied Families, published in 1931.
Dr. Kay was born in Franklin County, Pennsylvania on December 8, 1828. He died on September 20, 1920 in Springfield, Ohio.
William Kay, who was Dr. Kay's great-uncle, died on February 26, 1841 in Hopewell Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania. He is buried in Yellow Creek Cemetery.
Dr. Kay practiced medicine in Springfield, Ohio. He had two sons, Charles S. Kay and Clarence H. Kay. Based on U.S. Census records, it does not appear that Clarence H. Kay (born October 28, 1856, died August 24, 1930) and his wife, Florence, had any children.
Charles S. Kay (born November 4, 1853, died September 20, 1920) and his wife, Belle, had the following children:
Clarence M. Kay, Son 26* Edith W. Kay, Daughter 24* Clara Belle Kay, Daughter 19* Charles R. (Robert) 14* Florence Kay, Daughter 11* George W. Kay, Son 9* *Age in 1920
Clarence M. Kay died on January 24, 1930. Charles R.(Robert) Kay died on February 12, 1939. Florence Kay died on April 30, 1933.
I would like to determine if any heirs of Isaac Kay, M.D., have copies of the material (described above) that Dr. Kay used to prepare the Kay Family Record. Thank you.
