You have changed his birth place to a Quaker Monthly Meeting House... He was born in Newberry County, South Carolina according to find a grave and these Quaker Meeting Minutes:

Elizabeth Pugh, wife of John Jay, was daughter of Thomas Pugh, born in 1731 and Ann Wright, born in 1725. both natives of Pennsylvania. She was the granddaughter of Jesse Pugh, born 1711, who was the grandson of Ellis Pugh, born in 1656 in Wales, from whence in 1687, he came to the province of Pennsylvania and died there in 1718. Ellis Pugh was an approved minister among the Friends, both in Wales, and in Pennsylvania, preaching in the Welsh language and was instrumental in gathering many of that nationality around Philadelphia into membership with the Friends. John and Elizabeth Pugh Jay were parents of eleven children, seven sons and four daugh- ters, born in South Carolina in the years 1773 to 1795. Three of them married at Bush River Meeting. In the first half of the year 1803, John Jay and family, including ten of his children, came to Warren County, Ohio. There he engaged in mercantile business at Waynesville, Ohio, for about five years. In that time, for the purpose of buying goods, he made two trips with his own five-horse team to Baltimore, Maryland, with produce from the new country. Walter Denny Jay, went with him as companion and teamster. In the meantime he entered land in the southwest corner of Monroe township, Miami County, Ohio, and when a home was prepared the family settled on this land. From the date of the certificate transferring their membership from Miami to West Branch this removal appears to have been in the autumn of 1808, and here in a few years nine of his eleven children with their families were settled around him, most of them on farms adjoining each other.
