Notes for James MAYES:
"Trade was by barter. Inhabitants of "the upper part of the County of Chester" complained of a lack of a "highway" and that, because
"Trade and Commerce among our Selves [was] mostly by way of Barter, Money cannot be Supposed plenty." Although the community at
Donegal had tanners, carpenters, smiths, weavers, and others who did such odd jobs as bailing hay for neighbors, few could command
cash for their services. James Mayes, for example, owed more than £130 for work done by fellow migrants when he died in 1734."

Notes for Margaret MAYES:
"Margaret Mayes, born Febuary 2, 1738 in the north of Ireland, was the daughter of Andrew and Rebecca Mayes who came to America
the same year. Her parents settled in Lancaster County within ten miles of the present City of Harrisburg and it was here on the frontiers
that the daugter reached womanhood. She married December 29, 1962 John Murray who resided nearby. In common with the women of
the backwoods districts she endured the hardships and the sufferings from which there was no alleviation for a period of almost twenty
years. During the struggle for independence and the absence of her husband from the hearthstone, she did her part nobly and well. The
men at the front fighting the battles of their country knew that the cause was just and that God was with them. Yet they acted not alone in
all that fearful drama, for the mothers, wives, daughters and sisters left behind helped them in their devotion. It is true that their exertions
were devoid of the pomp for which most men strive but few obtain, but the conduct of the women, although silent, was none the less
potent in acts of heroism. It was then , as it is in this era, that noble women worked to alleviate the sufferings of mortals and performed
deeds of heroism and benevolence looking beyond the grave for the blessed reward. It is said that the good deeds which men do live
after them but it may be fairly stated that the services rendered by philanthropic women in all ages of the world will only be known when
time shall be no more. Notwithstanding the sufferings and trials during the early period of her life, Mrs. Murray lived a green old age and
died on the 22nd of June 1807 in Upper Paxtang Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania and is buried by the side of her husband in the
old cemetery near Dauphin borough." Qoute from Some Pennsylvania Women During the War of the Revolution, Matrons of the
Revolution, page 141. She was married to Col. John MURRAY (son of William MURRAY and Isabella LINDLEY) on 29 Dec 1762 in
Dauphin Co., Pennsylvania. Col. John MURRAY was born about 1731 in Scotland. He died on 3 Feb 1798 in Upper Paxtang Township,
Daulphin Co., Pennsylvania. He was buried in Hill (Dauphin) Cemetery, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. From Dr. Egle's Pennsylvania
Genealogies, Murray of Swatara, pg. 528-529:
"... In 1776 he took up a tract of land called the 'Indian Burying Ground' lying on the Susquehanna, immediately above his brother James'
farm, which adjoined the present town of Dauphin. He commanded a rifle company, which in March, 1776 was attached to Col. Samuel
Mils' battalion, and participated in the battles of Long Island, White Plains, Trenton, and Princeton. He was promoted to Major April 18,
1777, and Lieutenant Colonel of the Second Pennsylvania regiment in 1780, serving until the disbanding of the army in 1783. He then
returned to his family and farm. Governor Miffin appointed him a justice of the peace August 29, 1791, the
only political office he ever held..."

Notes for George T. MAYES:
W.T. MAYES, one of the oldest native residents of Crittenden County, was born March 19, 1817, and is the youngest child of George
and Mary Mayes, both parents natives of South Carolina. Mr. Mayes' grandfather, James Mayes, was a native of Pennsylvania, and a
soldier in the war of the Revolution, having served in Washington's army during that struggle. He died at Spartanburgh [sic], S.C., many
years ago. Subject's maternal grandfather, James Elder, was also a Revolutionary soldier; he was born in South Carolina, in an early
day came to Kentucky, and settled in what is now Crittenden County, where he died about 1817. George T Mayes, subject's father, was
born in South Carolina, in 1773. After his marriage to Mary Elder, he immigrated to Tennessee, where he remained one year, and in 1798,
came to what is now Crittenden County, locating the farm where subject now lives. He died in 1847. Subject's mother was born in 1770,
and died in 1833. They reared a family of ten children, only two of whom are living: George T., Jr., and W.T. (subject). W.T Mayes early in
life chose the vocation of a farmer, which he has since followed. He commenced farming on the old home place, which he afterward
purchased, and to which he has at various times since added other tracts of land, and now owns a beautiful and fertile farm of over 300
acres. He has been a very successful farmer and stock raiser, and is esteemed as one of the county's most substantial citizens. He was
married October 17, 1849, to Helen M. McCarter, daughter of William and Mary (Young McCarter, of Livingston County. Mr. and Mrs.
Mayes have reared a family f seven children: Mary L. (deceased), Mattie (deceased), George (deceased), Alma, William, Richard and
Lena. Mr. Mayes has been a member of the Republican party ever since its organization, and during the war was a warm friend of the
Union. He and his wife are both members of the Presbyterian Church.
Quotation from "Kentucky: A History of the State, Battle, Perrin, Kniffin 2nd ed., 1885
Crittenden Co."
He was married to Mary ELDER (daughter of Captain James ELDER and Margaret Ann) on 12 Feb 1795 in South Carolina. Mary
ELDER was born in 1773 in South Carolina. She died on 14 Jul 1833 in Livingston Co., Kentucky.
"Seven ELDER brothers and their families left South Carolina and came to the Cumberland Gap, left there and came to a point known
as Campbell Station fifteen miles west of Knoxville, Tennessee. There they heard of Indian depredations to the west, and they remained
there for two years. They were at Campbell Station in the year 1796.
With the seven ELDER brothers in the caravan that left Campbell Station were David HILL and George MAYES. They built a boat and
launched it on the Holston River after loading it with their household goods, the women and children, and enough men to navigate the boat.
Some traveled by land to drive the stock. The boat being too small and crowded, they would land at night and camp on shore. Tradition
has it that they ran the thirty miles down Muscle Shoals in thirty minutes. In rounding the Horse Shoe Bend the men turned the boat toward
midstream and rowed with all there might to keep it off the rocks on the outer curve. They floated to the month of the Tennessee River,
poled the boat up the Ohio and Cumberland Rivers to where Dycusburg, Livingston County, Kentucky now is. They camped there until
the men with the stock brought teams to carry them to their new homes in the autumn of 1798. 
The men cleared ten acres of land two and one half miles southeast from Marion, Kentucky now is. These men were David HILL,
George MAYES, and five of the ELDER brothers. This land was later known as the Mayes Pond. The men helped each other clear the
land and build their homes. Two cemeteries are located near the site of Centerville, a few miles from Marion, Kentucky. Both cemeteries
are on the Caldwell county side of the creek. John ELDER’s marker reads "Deceased 1799". In the year of 1955 this marker was still
standing. John Elder married Mary MORROW. Three ELDER brothers James, George and John lived in Ireland called them selves
Scotch-Irish, came to the United States from England. One settled in New York, one in Georgia, and the other in North Carolina. George
moved from North Carolina to South Carolina.
William/George ELDER his children were the following: James, John (James, John and John’s son Robert are buried in Livingston
Graveyard in Caldwell Co., Kentucky.) Samuel, Thomas (stayed in Spartanburg Co., South Carolina), William, and two boys names
unknown at this time who died of malnutrition during the Revolutionary War. This is an incomplete record of the children’s names as
seven brothers and their families came through the Cumberland Gap together in 1795. One brother died and was buried beside the
road, but his family came on with the others. They settled near Marion, Crittenden County, Kentucky, in the Chapel Hill vicinity.
In 1795, the seven ELDER brothers and their families came through the Cumberland Gap and stopped at a fort to rest. The fort was
near a creek. One day the children were playing along the creek. All at once someone shouted, "Indians" the children had already seen
the Indians and were running to the fort. Samuel C. ELDER was a small child and redheaded. One Indian took after him. Someone at the
fort shot the Indian in the heel. They took him prisoner. Samuel remembered the Indian around the fort but he didn’t know what happen to
him after they left the fort. They came on down to Dycusburg, Kentucky and unloaded the boats. They cut down trees, built log homes
and planted corn and a garden. This was in the fall of 1798 but early enough for the women to put up vegetables for the winter. One
brother built his home on land that is now known as Herbert Cochran’s farm, about half mile from where the Cochran home now
stands. The ELDER brothers built a home for Polly ELDER whose husband David had died on the road. It was built close to their own
homes so they could look after her and the children. William ELDER took up government land and raised his family. The other brothers
built close by. Some took up government land and others built on their brothers lands.
On Sunday mornings the seven ELDER brother’s families would walk to Crooked Creek Church in time for Sunday School. This
church was known as Bethany Church when the ELDER families were walking there. In the summertime they would walk barefooted to
church and stop and wash the feet in the creek but on the shoes and go in the church. All the men carried there rifles as there were wild
animals and a few Indians around. Some of the ELDER’s moved over to Illinois in Saline County. The present town of Eldorado, Saline
County, Illinois was named after this ELDER family."

Notes for John MAYES:
WILL OF JOHN MAYES
In the Name of God Amen.
I John Mayes of the State of Georgia and County of Franklin being weak in body yet in my sound mind and understanding for which I
thank God do make, apoint and ordain this my last Will and Testament written with my own hand.
All my just debts which are but few and none of any great amount I wish them to be punctually paid as soon as the debts coming to
me can be collected. To my dearly beloved wife Margaret Mayes I give and bequeath the use of my whole estate real and personal
during her natural life except such part as are otherwise desposed of hereafter. My negro girl Rebeckah I give to her to do and
despose of as she may deem proper at her death. The tract of land I first bout and now live on I give her during her natural life.
The tract of land I bout of James Lowrey on which my son Newton lives on I give him the use of as long as he sees proper to live on.
The tract which I bout of Charles Lowrey I give the use to my son Harvey and at my wife’s death all my land is to be equally divided
between my three sons Edward, Newton, and Harvey and it is my desire that Edward would come and live on the Plantation with his
mother and when my son Harvey and my two daughters are married that he would come and live in the house with her and at her death
the house and other buildings should be on his part of the land. To my son Robert I give and bequeath one half of the note I hold on
Alexander and George Crawford for two hundred dollars. The other half I give and bequeath to my two daughters Malinda and Synthy to
be equally divided between them when they come of age. Likewise each of them a good horse, sadle and bridle, cow and calf, bed and
furniture and all they can make within themselves to be their own afterwards.
And at my wife’s death all the balance of my estate I desire to be equally divided between all my sons and daughters namely Thomas,
William, Jane Turk, James, Isabella Thomas, Edward, Robert, Newton, Harvey, Malinda and Synthy.
Lastly I constitute and apoint my son in law William Turk and my son Edward Mayes my executors.
In witness whereof I have hereunto let my hand and seal October 11, 1827

Thomas Bush J.P. John served as a private in Captain John Hill's Company of Wilkes County, Georgia Militia commanded by Colonel
Elijah Clarke and was station at Fort Martin in 1782. He received a soldiers grant and bounty for land along the Oconee River in old
Franklin County for his service.
"In a few years after the organization of the church [Hebron] Elder John Mayes, brother of Elder Thomas Mayes moved to Hebron from
Fair Forest, South Carolina. John Mayes was the chorister of the church as long as he lived. His son, Robert Mayes, an elder in the
Dohlonga church died recently. Another son, Harvey Mayes, is now an elder in Midway Church, Cobb County, Georgia. Another son,
Edward Mayes, also an elder, died some years ago in Cobb County. Another son, William Mayes of Cobb County, was (I believe) also
an elder. Still another son, Allen Newton Mayes, a noble man and a devoted Christian, died August 1853. He was an elder in the Homer
Church. Two months ago I ordained to the eldership at Hebron T.A. Mayes, youngest son of Allen Newton Mayes and grandson of John
Mayes. Thus the mantles of the dead and glorified fathers are worn by the sons and grandsons, as the young Elisha gathered up the
fallen mantle of the translated and glorified Elijah.
Elder John Mayes was a man of marked character and of devoted piety. He lived on the public road and often lodged travelers.
Returning home from his stillhouse at a late hour on night, he saw two travelers playing cards by his fire. He deliberately stepped near,
took the cards, and tossed them into the fire; and then turning toward them said ' I'll have you know that this is my house and that no
man is allowed to gamble in it." John Mayes was a good Christian man, and in that day a good man's conscience did not hinder him
from running a distillery, but would not allow him to tolerate gambling under his roof." Groves Harrison Cartledge

Margaret is shown in the 1850 Franklin County census as having $3000 in value of realestate.
