Daughter of William Hays and Catherine Lewis, Millie’s sister. Millie and Catherine were daughters of Joshua Lewis and Martha Marston. From my last post on this family, the previous documents suggest William Hays and Catherine Lewis died at or near the same time and left behind five or seven children.
Now we know William Hays had a “considerable personal estate” upon his death but died intestate. The document states Winifred was entitled to one-seventh part of her father’s estate. On a side note, I find it interesting Winifred Hays went on to marry a man named William Hays.
That’s all for now, have a Happy New Year!
