I recently noticed that someone had discovered a maiden name for one of my ancestors Margaret Hays. The background was that Margaret married Isaac Hays Oct 31 1844 in Lafayette MO. On the marriage cert it stated Margaret's name as Margaret Hays (also as M.C. Hays)before she married Isaac. I have heard once she was a Cowan too - but could find no link or proof.
Now I am trying to either confirm or ruleout the claim she was a Ewing.
I can not find any evidence she was a Hays (obviously)
Can anyone tell me / help me with some info on this Margaret? She was born in KY in 1826 or 1828 I suspect she might have married a Hays and been widowed before she married Isaac Hays.
