Birth: 1798
Death: 1884

Partner of Dorcas Shoffne. Husband of Sarah (Sally) Shelby Lay (Maried 13 Jul 1846) & Celina Whited Lay (Married 16 Dec 1870).
Son of John David (Big Valley Dave) & Mary Moore Lay

From Footprints 2000:
This cemetery which is located on Leadmine Bend Road near C.C.C. Camp #448 in Sharps Chapel has been destroyed. It is said one of the C.C.C. boys, as a prank, removed Jessie's marker. It was replaced at a later time but cannot be found now.

The Union County Cemetery Association also purchased and placed a blue cemetery sign in the cemetery. It is now missing.
