Excellent work on the page for Jesse Lay (c1744-bef. 1830)! Wish everyone would provide as many supporting records as that.

As far as I can tell, "Aunt Susie" [Brassfield-207] is the only person my grandmother knew of by that name. She would have been called "Aunt Susie" because she was married to "Uncle" Thompson Kissinger, the brother of my grandmother's grandmother, Catherine Kissinger Kirk. So she was a great-aunt by marriage to my grandmother.
Hi Steve and thanks for the response to the article. I have added Brassfield-207 from the information I have. I am trying to figure out who her husband's parents were.

Do you have info on the circumstances of Dennis M. T. Brassfield's death in 1855? Thanks, Margaret Summitt [Robe-79]

Hi Steve I sent you an email but no reply so I am reposting here. I think you may be interested in an article I have written on the Brassfield and Kirk families. I was trying to track down the origin of a family legend about the murder of "Aunt Susie" Brassfield's uncle, whoever he was. Please send me a private message so I can pass the article along to you. Thanks. Margaret Summitt [Robe-79]
Yes, please merge Broyles-1016 and -1030 to clear the duplicate. I found it when I was looking for Elizabeth Broyles, who married William Wilhoit/Wilhite. Thank you! jan

I have done a lot of research on my mom family the surname Leonard and Fine that linked to the Leonards with 2 books that my mother sister that is dead now loaned me and her husband told me I can have them and do have them. The Broyles are linked to Leonards and the Fines also. Broyles and the Fines are in both books. The books names are HISTORY OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, TENNESSEE 1988 and the other book is HISTORY OF RHEA COUNTY, TENNESSEE. We might be related and kinfolk with this link.

Thank you Steve for your great work on the Lay Family, particularly showing that Sarah Lay is the wife of William Loftis, and not William Foster (my relative). I attached the copy of the deed to Sarah's profile that shows the Loftis name. As much as I would like to be related to the Lay family I am glad someone else found this also!
