Subject: [SANDUSKY-L] Clay and Megee

Vital Records from Newspapers of Paris, Kentucky, 1813-1870 was the
title of a volume by Ford and Nagle in 1999 that included marriages and death
from The Western Citizen and The True Kentuckian.
Among the records I found three that Nina K. Everett could use in her
charts of the Clay and Megee families.
The first was in the 5 Feb. 1847 issue of The Western Citizen reporting
the death of Joseph H. Clay on 25 Jan. 1847. As is known to Nancy Jett,
Joseph H. Clay was the father of Mary E. Clay, who married Jacob Sandusky
Megee. He was 42 years old.
The second one in the 25 May 1849 issue detailed the marriage by the Rev.
Thomas P. Dudley of Jacob Sandusky Megee of Jessamine County and Mary E.
Clay, daughter of Mrs. Amanda F. Clay of Bourbon County, on 17 May 1849.
On 29 Sept. 1854, The Western Citizen had information on two other
daughters of Amanda Clay. It stated that Margaret, 12 years old, died on
August 22 and Letitia C., 13, on Sept. 12. They were members of the Union
Sunday School in Fayette County.
