in VA November 17, 1841 and died in Clay County WV February 25, 1911.

divorcee.  Dawson's sketch on Hays Alexander Paxton says, "It has

been said that he lived with Mrs. Amanda Park part of the time."

     The 1870 Clay County WV census lists Amanda E. Park as a

housekeeper in the household of Hays Paxton.  Hays's will,

recorded in Will book 1, page 22, in the courthouse at Clay, West

Virginia, names some of Amanda Park's children as legal heirs.

Four children, Hays A., Henry Clay, James M. and Martha D. are

identified with the last name Paxton in this will, suggesting

that Hays was their father.

in 1815, a son of Thomas and Dicena (Cartwright) Paxton.  He

married Nancy McDaniel in Kanawha County, Virginia June 27, 1836.
