Larry Ashcraft
Nicholas Hayes (1730-1804)
I'm seeking information on Nicholas Hayes. My line to him is
Larry Ashcraft - Geneva Alice Keller - Viola Valeria Thornhill - Margaret Elizabeth Cline - Mary Ann Hayes - James Hayes - Nicholas Hayes.
I have him married to Alice "Aley" Hunter in 1751 (not sure of the place), and them having 18 children. His parents are John Hayes & Jane Love. Could you add to this? My e-mail is I would love to communicate with you.

RE: Name oParrottsville abandoned cemetery
Hi! Thanks for the info. That is possible. It is abandoned and often over years the cemeteries were called different names.

Thank you,

PIERCE CEMETERY In District 7, Dyer County, Tennessee
I recently received an e-mail from Betty Stephens who does a magnificent job in identifying burials in Dyer County cemeteries on
I had sent her what I've discovered about this cemetery. Unfortunately she tells me she believes the cemetery did once exist but it has been lost.
I still believe there is information in the Find A Grave archives sent to Jim Tipton when he founded Find A Grave by the Utah State Historical Society.
I believe it is more likely that those in the family of Jeremiah "Jerry" Pierce are buried in this lost/deserted cemetery. Jeremiah "Jerry" Pierce accompanied George Davis, Willis Chamberlain, and my 3rd great grandfather, William Martin, on flatboats on the Cumberland, Ohio, Mississippi, and Forked Deer rivers to make the second settlement in Dyer County four and three-fourths miles east of Dyersburg.
