Thanks for the reply. The name Hannah, along with a few other names such as Jesse were used repeatedly by the Lays. When we get as far back as the 1700s it starts getting confusing. A lot of folks, get some of these people with the same names confused as one person. The Lays in East TN and SE KY are descendants of the Lays from Wilkes Co, Caswell Co, NC and Pttisylvania VA, which is across the state line from Wilkes Co. Hannah does have a line with the LFGA #9, you may want to get in contact with some of her other descendants through the LFGA. However, I don't think anyone knows for sure who Hannah's parents were, but like I said before, I think she is the daughter of Jesse Lay Sr (b abt 1745) of Caswell Co,and later he was in East TN and Kentucky.
