William Hayes (1813) and Christina Hayes (1818) were cousins who were born in Hardy County, VA.  They were married to each other.  They died in Preston County, WV.  A census shows Christina's parents were born in PA, but no names.

No answer for you yet, but I added the 1850 census and a location category to Christina.  You can duplicate it on William's page.

Didn't found parents but a few things for you...

The bond for her estate executor, Joseph Feather, was paid 19 Oct 1887 so she died before that date.

Her Will is dated 23 Jul 1887. Probate date is 2 Jan 1888.  Wills, Probate Records, 1869-1970; Author: West Virginia. County Court (Preston County); Probate Place: Preston, West Virginia.

Was William in the Army? There's an 18 Feb 1830 or 31 enlistment that may be him. It lists his home county at that time as Botetourt, Virgina and occupation as farmer.

I have a copy of her original will (written by someone else) since she couldn't read and write.  My mother's cousin still lives in Terra Alta and she has the original.  I have not checked out William's military service.  I'll try to do that.  Thanks.

Janeine
