can tell you about her, as her

knew her since he was a child. He's 79 and his memory is starting to fade,

so if you'd like the family gossip from him, I recommend you contact him

soon. His only sibling, older brother George Edgar Hays, died last

September.

I have the Hays line back to when John Hays and wife Rebecca settled in

Virginia.

Please go to http://www.web-ster.com/lhays/haysdex/HTOC.htm

but know that I intend to take that site down in a few months, and post

additions and corrections to  EdieGale.com

I also found you listed in Gendex as researching Arderry and Hickman, but

was unable to get the link through to your website. These are ancestors of

Fannie Jessie Ogle who married George Edgar Hays. I have Peggy Ardery

married Jesse Ogle in Harrison Co., KY. I *assume* but have not yet

attempted to prove, that William Ardery was her father. Who was HIS

father??

Mary Elizabeth Hickman married Jesse Ogle Jr. and moved to Ralls Co., MO.

Since she named her first son Hugh, I assume, but again have not yet

attempted to prove, that she was a daughter of Hugh Smith Dunn Hickman. I

assume (from proximity) that Hugh was a son of Benjamin and Kizzia.

Any information that you would share on these families would be very welcome.

Some info on Bebenel (gleaned from my Grandmother, Della Edith Myers Hays,

and my father, Howard Myers Hays):

Bebenel was apparently not named at birth, and later was given leave to

name herself. Apparently all heroines (or damsels in distress, or both?)

of that time were named Nell, and so she named herself (being but a young

child) "Baby Nell." It's a bit of a name for an older child, and by the

time she was a teenager, she'd swapped the accent and become BEB-eh-nel.

As I understand from someone who has a copy of her family Bible, all other

entries were apparently written in one hand, and in chronological order

EXCEPT for Nell's name. Space was left for the entry of her name, and in

that space, but in a different handwriting, appears the name Marjorie [or

is it Margarie?] Nell Downing.

I don't know that she ever used the name Margarie. It was not uncommon for

anyone in this family to use their middle name as their use-name. Her

mother, Sarah Campbell Hays, was known as "Cammie." Bebenel apparently

began using the name Nell after her marriage (I think she published

everything under the name Nell Downing Norton, or Mrs. Voris Norton), but

to family she was always Bebenel.

She was not married long when her husband died. Her father's family owned

a construction company (??) in St Louis, and "were not hurting" though were

not rich, either. Her father-in-law offered to support her as long as she

remained a widow, undoubtedly assuming that she would remarry. She was

given a modest pension to live on. She realized that she could live far

less expensively back in New London and moved back there to live and follow

her heart. Unfortunately for her father-in-law, marrying again was

apparently not in her heart. She became a professional genealogist, and

did well in her field.

She was a researcher, and apparently a very good one, but she tended to

become sidetracked. In the St Louis Public Library is a copy of one of

her books. She published the marriage records of Ralls Co., MO, but

apparently only in carbon copies, and filled with family references.

(Someone else finally re-published the records for major distribution.)

She also had the audacity in the above-mentioned "book" to make references

to another book which she contributed to the same library. See page ___ of

"The Descendants of John Walker of Wigton, Scotland." The problem was, the

"page" she referred to was something she had typed and pasted inside the

back cover of the Walker book! If someone were to look for this reference

in any other copy of the book, they wouldn't find it!

Grandma told me that Bebenel belonged to any and every genealogical

organization that she could find that she qualified for. She was not able

to prove Mayflower, or she would have belonged to that one, also.

I undoubtedly met Bebenel at some point in my youth, but in the mayhem of

family reunions I tended to ignore the adults -- they were all ancient. The

last time I would have been likely to have seen her was 1966 at my Great

Grandma Hays's funeral. Bebenel's aunt, Jessie Ogle Hays, widow of George

Edgar Hays, died at age 94. Bebenel was nigh on 80. I was 12.
