The first was born in about 1884; the 10th child of Rueben Franklin and Mary CARROLL BAYS. (Rueben and Mary are my second great-grandparents.)
The second is Beverly T. BAYS who was born in 1854 in Russell CoVA and married Mary A. JONES in March 1880 in Russell CoVA.(This Beverly is my second cousin 5 times removed.)
It would be very exciting for your Beverly to be the sone of Rueben and Mary BAYS. So far I have only been able to find 7 of their 13 children.Do you have any census records showing the state or county in which your Beverly was born?
