Bays Family History and Genealogy by Douglas M. Dubrish
The more recent generations (1800's) of the Bays family have settled
in eastern Kentucky around the area of Greenup. However, they have had plantations in Virginia, survived devastating Native
American attacks, been Captains aboard merchant vessels, and migrated over the decades to England from the French Champaign
region. Originally the name in France was Basse then it changed over the years to Base and then to Bays. If you are a member
of the Bays family this book is for you! As the saying goes: If you want to have hope and faith in the future you must stand
on the shoulders of the past.
