I just offer this info.I have not proven any of it.The info came to me via a family tree handout at a "First Cousins" family reunion held inOklahoma City in 1992.It is my understanding the author of the pamplet had worked on the "Lay" family tree for many years prior to the reunion.
Since she worked on the history before the internet was a going thing, she probably documented this infor well.If anyone has information to share or this info is of help I would like to know.Thank you
