While the descendants of John Nay, Jr. do not have a formal family organization, many of his
descendants are interested in preserving his history and in compiling a complete genealogical database of
his ancestors and descendants. For this purpose, many of his descendants held a family reunion on 17 Apr
2004 (John's 200th birthday) in St. George, Utah. This webpage is the result of discussions at that
meeting. The goal of this website is to facilitate the sharing of family history information. If you want
to help by serving as a genealogist or historian for your branch of the John Nay, Jr. family, please
contact the webmaster.
Like any human endeavor, this page is subject to error. At the very least, information about these
people is a very incomplete reflection of their lives. If you have any additional information about these
people, please contact the webmaster or one of the family genealogists listed

Family in Utah and the West:
history of John Nay Jr., His Wives and Children
Nay, Jr. (1804-1892) is the patriarch of most, if not all all Nays rooted in Utah. Some dedicated members of
the Nay/McNee family have compiled a book on the lives and posterity of John and his wives, Thirza Angelina
Hale (1814-1895) and Lucy Thankful Pine (1831-1897). The book includes comprehensive genealogical charts.
