Billy Day

Billy and I connect at Robert Day, Sr. & Elizabeth Adams. Billy connects through their son, Robert D. Day, Jr., while I connect through their son, Jonathan Day. This Jonathan Day was been confused with his nephew Jonathan Day, son of Robert D. Day, Jr., who spent most of his life in Amite co., MS. My Jonathan Day moved on to Wilkinson co., MS and died there. The will of Jonathan Day, son of Robert D. Day, Jr. has been posted to the Amite county genweb site, and clears up the confusion between these two men. He had three children that were deaf.
