Guelda L. Hay

Guelda Hay was well known to us through all of the work that she and Millie Stewart have done over the years to preserve the history and genealogy of Taylor and surrounding counties. Millie used to tell me that Guelda was kin to most all the families in Taylor County in one way or another! And Guelda always shared what she knew.
Guelda was co-author of "Cemeteries of Taylor County, Georgia". Her work will live on!
