Jemima "Gemmie" York Hays
Birth: May 12, 1762
Orange County
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1812
Randolph County
North Carolina, USA

Jemima YORK age sixteen married Edmond HAYS IV age eighteen on 06 Mar 1778 in Randolph County, North Carolina. Edmond HAYS IV was a Revolutionary War veteran. He fought at the Battle of Cowpens on January 17, 1781 in Cherokee County, near Chesnee, South Carolina among other duties. That fierce battle was a decisive American victory over the British.

This family lived in the Sandy Creek Settlement and raised a large family in Randolph County, North Carolina. Most likely they were faithful members of the Sandy Creek Baptist Church where they are buried in the church cemetery. Some unknown tragedy struck down Jemima YORK at age 49 in 1812. Her "Gemmie" HAYS tombstone was in Row 5, Grave 1 (stone missing in 1997) according to Randolph County Cemetery Records Volume IV, page 133. I recall seeing her tombstone about 15 years ago (2000) in Row 12, Plot 4 which is now missing for many years.

The thirteen children of Jemima YORK, daughter of Henry YORK and his wife Eve Dorthy WEIR and Edmond HAYS IV, son of Edmond HAYS III and his wife Martha HERRING are:
