Hello eveyone. I am Marilyn Humrichouser Albert and am trying to follow the Hay line in my family. I just came upon a written document that writes about discrepticies in the lines of the German Hay family. This came off of Ancestry.com and is on my tree there. If anyone wants to look at my tree to help see what I am talking about I will email my user name and password to someone for that perpose. This document is attached to Johann Simon Hoh (hay),
My family first came into contact with the Hay family when my Grandfather, Thomas Selby, 1782-1868, met and married Catherine Hay, 1780-1830. They were both from Virginia and moved to Jermoesville, Ashland County, Ohio, where they settles down. My family is still in that area today. They are buried in Jeromesville also. Catherine's father was Adam Hay/Hoh and they settled down in Amanda, Fairfield, Ohio. They are buried there.
Adam,12Feb1738-1803, along with his father Michael "John" Hay/Hoh, and four of his brothers immigrated from Germany and came to America. John Sr. and John Jr. settled in the area Philadelphia, Adam came to Ohio, and the other three brothers settled elsewhere in another area. His brothers were Valentine, Simon and Francis/Frantz.
John Hay/Hoh, 21Oct1682, was born in Hoheinod, Palatinate, Bayern, Germany and died 24Feb1757 in Ghardsbrunn, Palatinate, Bayern, Germany. This is where I got the three page document this part of the family. I have the copies of the first two, but I don't have WORD on my computer so I can't print or read what that document says.
This is also where I can't entry anymore information because I am not certified for the 1700's. Simon's father, John Hay, 21Oct1635 - 1704, but I am not sure where he was born. I have seen he was born in Scotland and seen he was born in Hoheinod, Bayern, Germany. and it says he died in Holy Trinity The Less, London, England, where he was buried.
This takes up back to Scotland. Simon is the son of -Died 1694 Gilbert, 11th Earl of Erroll, Hay, Born1609- Died 1694. He was married to Lady Katherine Carnegie, Mar1607 -1694
At that is the end of my report. I know the first part is true. The Selby family was a name that last until the Brandt's came into the family. Please don't hesitate to look at my lineage on Ancestry.com. There is nothing outlandish about my family. This might even straighten out some of the problems with the Hay line that others have been having. Thank you so much for your time.
Marilyn (sorry for any mistakes, but was trying to hurry.)
