  • Notes 
    • Mary Vestal and William Jay married about 1743 in Frederick Co., VA. She likely lost her membership in the Quaker church for marrying out of unity.
      On 10/5/1772, Mary Vestal Jay sent an acknowledgement of marriage out of meeting to the Hopewell Monthly Meeting. This was a few months before her husband's death. (Some researchers mistakenly claim this is because she married again.) (C-1338) It was accepted and Jesse Pugh was appointed to assist the women in preparing a certificate for her to remove to Bush River. (C-804) In Virginia, none of the Jays appear to have been Quakers, but shortly before and around the time she was reaccepted, all of her children appear to have become Quakers. She had two children married in the Quaker Meeting in the 3rd month of 1772.
      Vickie Leimback and Mike Southerland state that Mary's birth date was about 1723. Mike gives her death date as 1773 in New Burlington, Miami, OH and her full name as Mary Elizabeth Vestal. However, this death date cannot be correct, as Mary Vestal Jay and her daughter Rachel Jay Arnold received a certificate to move to Ohio in 1804. They moved in 1805 probably to Miami Co., Ohio. She died near New Burlington, Ohio between 1818-1820 and is buried in Caesars Creek Quaker Burying Ground.
