She moved with her parents to Scott county and later to Taylor county, where she was united in marriage to Silas Hays in the fall of 1860.

To this union nine children were born, five sons and four daughters, one daughter dying when about thirty-one years of age. Besides the nine children born to her, she raised four children of her husband' by a former wife. Three sons and three daughters were present at the funeral.

In 1877 she, her husband and family of young children moved and located on a farm near Table Rock, and several years later they bought the farm upon which they lived until they moved to town nine years ago, and the farm is now owned by Robert Hays.

She accepted Christ as her Savior, some time after her marriage and united with the Baptist church, and lived an exemplary Christian life.
