Just a little more on Samuel HAYS. According to WFT CD#2290, (a tree called GROOM, THOMPSON, FOSTER of TX, LA 1653-1995, submitted Jul. 17, 1995), Samuel HAYES, d. bef Oct 1793 in Davidson Co., TN. He married Elizabeth ___________. I believe this is the Elizabeth named in her father's will, along with her son Samuel HAYS, grandson of Samuel Brawford, (will in Augusta Co., VA dated April 21, 1789 listed below). This tree lists the children of Samuel and Elizabeth Hayes of Davidson Co., TN as Charles L, Andrew, Campbell, and Hugh Hayes. It follows the line of Charles L. Hayes, Sr. Of course, I do not have any proof this is the same line, just speculation. This tree goes on to add that Charles L. Hayes, Sr., married Morning ENOCKS (ENOX), dau. of Gabriel Enochs. Charles L. Hayes, Sr. was born "near Nashville" and died 1830 in Russelville, Athens, LA. It appears from will information that this Samuel may have been a son to Patrick HAYS, the immigrant to Orange Co., VA. In addition, Andrew HAYS, son of John and Anne Nancy Christian, also married into the ENOCH family (see below or use "find" button).
