Rest in peace. I haven’t seen him since the yearly Fort Ancient celebration came to an end.March 30, 2013 at 1:58 am in reply to: Welcome Everybody, we're back. Go ahead and register #36161
So that’s what happened. At one point my Avast Antivirus would let me go to the site.
Several years ago, I set up a server in the garage and had little BBS program running on it and darn if those pesky little Russians putting all kinds of trash on it. Too bad you can’t return it all to them.

Elizabeth Bowles b.1826 from Surry Co NC was one of my Ancestors.
Also have a James Fry b.1806 from Bourbon Co Ky that came from Jacob Fry b.1765 in Frederick VA. They moved to Ohio.
Oh, Fry is sometimes spell Frey
All this humor going around, I couldn’t resist posting this:
It’s nice and readable
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to all!
I have an ancestor, Judith Hays from Westmoreland PA b.4 Jun 1806 and died 1871 in Clermont Co. Ohio.
This name has been pretty elusive to me as well.
The closest name to Hays in Westmoreland Co PA is Haycock.
I saw some Haiths list in Philadelphia PA around 1800 on ancestry.com
I noticed the name Haas, I wonder if it is a variation of Hays.
I found this today, http://genforum.genealogy.com/hays/messages/4337.html
I’ve been trying to find out more in the Hays lately – not sure if they’re related.
Have you tried other spellings like Watkins?
Several fantastic theories on their origin have been suggested. One is that they were from Raleigh’s lost colony at Roanoke
Funny thing about this is that among many whites it was called a “theory”, no one wants to admit that it happened. My wife has a relative from this colony and they know exactly what happened and it is known to natives from that area.
We went to the Fort Ancient celebration this year. It was good, I enjoyed it, there were less vendors this time.
Here’s a Aerial map to those coordinates on Microsoft Terraserver:
You can also go to the Microsoft Terraserver site and view a Topographic Map, it will show you where the hills are. I can’t seem to link to the Topo maps.
Sorry to hear about your mother. We pray blessing for you.
Someone placemarked it. It’s clearly visible as an Indian Head – complete with Head dress.
