|I, with my father, were former members. As soon as
my wife and I get resettled(following our move back
to Annapolis from Arizona) I plan on getting
serious about researching my Jay line, which
unfortunately I only know back to my great-
grandfather Joseph J. Jay, husband of Mary A.
Wainwright. I have an old copy of the JFI but will
order a new one as well as a CD after renewing my
membership. Of course, I plan on taking advantage
of my proximity to the Maryland Archives as well as
what I can find in D.C. Will be looking for some
help and guidance when I get started.|

|My connection is through Charity Wright, who
married William Marshall. I have an old letter,
dated November 5h, 1841, from Brother Right Wright
to sisters, Mary Brooks or Charrity Marshall.
Right Wright names ... uncle John Jay and aunt
Lucy ... uncle James and Jemima Jay ... mills and
matilda Jay ... also: brother William Wright,
Nathan Wright, Nathan Coppock, Henry (Wright) ...
This letter along with other records indicate to me
that some of these Jays are the siblings of "Sarah
Jay" who is a daughter of William Jay.
I can send a copy of who you feel is the major
contributor to your association if you think it
provides the value that I see.

|A former member returns. In 1970's my father
corresponded with Mrs. Bradley and I have followed
up on several leads but can't establish lineage of
my great-grandfather,Joseph J. Jay,who married Mary
Ann Wainwright in 1872 in AL. Although family
history says he died in 1878, I found him in 1880
Census with indication he was born about 1847 in AL
and his parents were from SC. An older brother was
named Larkin Jay. Any help will be appreciated.
Many thanks to all who have made this a great
resource for Jay researchers. After researching my
mother's family for the past year, it was great to
return to my father's and find all this data so well
