  • Notes 
    • James was listed 5th in father's will. According to the Jay Family Index, James came to Clinton Co., Ohio in 1805. Quaker records however, indicate that he was still in the Bush River Monthly Meeting area of SC in 1809, where he and his family are listed in a visit from New Garden Monthly Meeting Members as James JAY and wife, Jemimah and children, Mills, Alexander, Mary, Rhoda, Layton, James, Ede (Edith), Dempsey, Isaac and Sarah. At any rate, he eventually settled on land belonging to his wife's uncle, George Arnold in Clinton Co., OH. They moved to Center Meeting in Wayne Co., IN in 1822 and to Henry Co., Iowa in 1842. (C-800) He could easily be the James Jay listed as living in Newberry Co., SC in the 1800 Census with 4 sons under 10, himself from 26-45, 2 daughters under ten and his wife between 26-45. (C-922)
