Another family of note in Hillsboro Township is the Hays family. The common ancestor of that family
was Benjamin Hays; I do not know who his wife was; he raised a considerable family of sons and
daughters; the sons, as remembered were James, Jessee, William H., Joseph B. and Levi H. Hays;
the daughters , as remembered were Mrs. Elias Allen , the mother of the late Rev. Joel Allen, and
Thompson Allen of Marlborough County; Mrs. Samuel Smith of Buck Swamp who died in 1857 and Mrs. John Martin
of Buck Swamp and Maiden Down; there may have been other daughters.
