Overview

Kinship

Some indicate that George's marriage to Sarah Dyer occurred in Isle of Wight County VA, but the basis for that is unknown. Most Hays' in the area seem to be kinsmen of John Hays and Patrick Hays who settled on Borden's Grant and Beverley Manor (respectively) about 1740. Patrick Hays' signature is given in court records associated with George and Sarah

323 Borden's Executors vs. James Edmonson and Sarah: late Sarah Hays.-- Was unmarried 17th May 1748. James Hays, son of Sarah. Signature of Patrick Hays

This seems to support the idea that George Hays was a kinsman of Patrick.


Patrick Hays, presumed Kinsmen of George, is known to have come to Augusta County immigrating from Ireland via Philadelphia. Patrick also returned to the Lancaster area after 1762. If George was indeed kinsman to Patrick, it seems likely that the marriage to Sarah Dryer occurred in Pennsylvania.

He seems to have a family connection to Patrick Hays based on role played in estate settlement. WHich Patrick that involved is unclear, but Patrick (1) is suspected since he also lived in Beverley Manor. Possibly among the Hays Creek lineage, which implies that he came to this country with the Derry and hays Creek lines, probably before 1733.

Table Notes

The above records were extracted from Chalkley's Chronicles for persons of a specific given name (e.g "William Hays") ordered by "Year"**. Plausible spelling variants (e.g., "Wm. Hayes", "William Heas", etc) are included. In some cases plausible variants that might be typographical corruptions are included for the sake of erroring on the "safe side". For example, Chalkley gives a parenthetical note for one record indicating that he couldn't tell from the original source whether the person meant was "Hugh Keyes" or "Hugh Hayes". In this particular case, the record is probably for "Hugh Keyes", but has been included with the listing for Hugh Hays for the sake of the possibility that it really does refer to a Hugh Hays.

*The number of entries under this name in the Index to Chalkley's Chronicles. The actual number of records may be larger (most likely) or smaller, depending on the accuracy of the index. Some records in Chalkley's for the target may not appear in the index, and other records may not be located on the page described. The former records are indicated in this column with "not", standing for "not found in the index". The latter records are indicated under "text" with a "?" Note that some records, not captured in Chalkelys index, may not appear at all in this listing.
** "Year" assigned may not be the year the record was made, but the year which appears to be related to the event described associated with the person of interest. For example, if testimony was entered into the court records in the year 1836 describing the Revolutionary War record of the target, then the assigned date is not 1836 (when the record was made) but approximate date 1776 (the start of the Revolution).
***This is the current "best guess" as to the identity of the person associated with this record. Note that it is not always possible to tell who a particular records applies to. If the record includes details of the persons family, then it's easier to make the identification. Sometimes no such information is available in the record, but there will be other clues (such as adjacent neighbors, etc) that allow the identification. In any case, sometimes one "John Smith" looks pretty much like another "John Smith", so take these identifications with a healthy grain of salt.

NOTE 2

From:Genforum 2.This Sarah Dyer was born, 1716 Lancaster PA d. 1800 August Co VA. She married George Hayes b. 1714 Isle of Wight VA d. May 1747 Augusta Co, VA.

There children were:

Thomas S
James
Ann
George
Mary Polly
John

Some people have her parents as Roger Dyer & Hannah Smith and others have her father as a John Dyer. My source: Descentants of George & Sarah (Dyer) Hayes Web Site, http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~schayes.

George Hayes and his wife Sarah (Dyer) Hayes were known to have lived in Augusta County, VA, in the early 1700s. George Hayes died there in 1747. His widow, Sarah (Dyer) Hayes remarried to James Edmundson (Edminsten) in 1749 and they moved to the head of Pedlar River in neighboring Amherst County, VA.

The Edmundson's then migrated to Wilkes County, North Carolina, along with many of Sarah's children by George Hayes. Sarah (Dyer) Hayes-Edmundson was known to have lived and died in the Patterson/Buffalo Creek area of Wilkes County (which later became Burke & Caldwell Counties), NC.



Info I've found online was...

Sarah Dyer was the Daughter of Roger Dyer and Hanna Smith of Lancaster County, PA who migrated to Augusta Co. VA in the 1740's. Her siblings were Hannah, William John, Hester and James. Roger was killed while fighting Indians on April 28,1758. Augusta County Court Will Book Page 301--24th F4ebruary 1757. Roger Dyer's will -- To wife Hanna, one-third of estate in this colony, or any other; to son James, infant; executrix wife Hanna; to son William; to three daughters; to daughter Hannah, 427 acres in Hampshire; to grandson Roger Dyer, son of William Dyer; to daughters Hester Patton, Sarah Hays. Teste: Wm Miller, Adam Hider, William Gibson. Further proved,16th May, 1759, by Adam Hider,and recorded. Executrix qualifies. Proved, 21st March, 1759 by William Gibson.

From:GENFORUM

researching the Sarah Dyer that married George Hayes and am descended from their son, George Hayes, JR.
Sarah could be a daughter of Roger Dyer of Ft Seybert Indian massacre fame. The dates do not work. That Roger Dyer was purportedly born ~1699 and having children circa 1730's.



If your birthdate of 1716 for Sarah Dyer who married George Hayes is correct, it seems unlikely that she was a daughter of Roger Dyer. Also I have seen reference to Roger's daughter Sarah being born 1741 and having married a Peter Hawes. (See post #1005 in this forum). It's possible our Sarah was a younger sister of Roger, but have no evidence to that effect.
