  • Notes 
    • James Jay settled in southwestern Person Co., NC. He was a private in the Revolutionary War from North Carolina. (C-458, p. 1587) He was a Baptist preacher. He died in Person Co., NC in 1833. and is buried in Jay Cemetery off of Snipes Rd (near Bushy Fork). Some of his descendants live there today. It was the same land he originally lived on in Orange Co., NC, but it became Caswell and then Person County through boundary changes. (C-642)
      He and his other two oldest brothers were not in their father's will supposedly because they stayed behind in North Carolina when the elder William moved to South Carolina. (C-169, 831) His full name was James George according to his descendant named JJ from Texas. (C-817)
