NOTES: 1790 Census, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, lists a John Day with one son under 16 and 3 females. This may be John's father. Redstone was on the migration route from Essex County, New Jersey, to southwestern Ohio. Part of the Stevens family settled there for at least a time, and many Essex County migrants are known to have passed through Redstone. There was a sizable Day family in Essex County; it is likely that our Days are a part of that family.

Mary and Martha so called by Richard Carl Stevens, "Stevens-Day Genealogy," (1954), and in "History of Dearborn and Ohio Counties, Indiana," (Weakley & Co., 1875). Clara A. Day on marriage to Truesdale.

NOTES: 1850, 1860 censuses, Ripley and Vigo Counties, Indiana. Ripley County marriage records, Pipe Creek Cemetery, Hamilton County, Campbell County research by G. Julian, Hixson, "Terry Trails," (1986).

Robert's Pipe Creek tombstone reads "17 February 1858, Aged 91 years 6 months 5 days." However, see 1860 census, where he gives his age as 90 years. An earlier copyist wrote that his stone read "16 February 1862 Aged 90 y 6 m 5 d," whih fits other known facts. The tombstone was repaired in 1988; an error in the date may have occurred then.
