John H. Fay, the son of David S. and Clarissa, appears on the list of 1914 Rural Tax Payers for Spring Grove Township (John Packard group).
Also on the taxpayer list are John Fay Newland and H. D. Newland from Center Point. Did a Fay woman marry into the Newland family?
The USGenWeb Archives, hosted by RootsWeb, can provide much information. Searching the cemetery lists, for example, brings up the following.
The Osage (Protestant) Cemetery (Oliver Stevens group):
Fay, Oliver S.; 1810-1878
|From Gethsemane Cemetery, Lansing Township, Allamakee County, a Roman Catholic cemetery, comes the following list:

|Samuel, Emeline and Emma also appear in 1895.|
According to the Slayton family history, Emeline Slayton b: 1834 in Dover, Tuscarawas Co., OH d: in Osage, Mitchel Co., IA, married Samuel Fay b: 1830 in Dover, Tuscarawas Co., OH. [Samuel seems to have been born in NY, however, according to all of the census records.] They had three children, all born in Dover (according to the Slaytons, but I think that is wrong): Gilbert Fay, b. 1856; Samuel, b. 1858; and Emma, b. 1860.
That there are more children than these three is clear from the 1870 census, where five children are listed: Horatio 14, Gilbert 12, Mary 10, Charles 8, and Emma 6. This Mary is most probably the "Millie" listed with the family in 1880.
Later census material shows Horatio married, with two children of his own. I have not found Gilbert after the 1870 census, and I have not found Horace in the 1880 census.
|From the 1895 census, Honatis [sic], age 40; and Jennie, age 38, Alda, age 1, and Ori, age 8. The 1900 census has the correct spelling:|
Horatio, born 9/1855
Jennie, born 6/1856
Ori, born 7/1886
Alda, born 5/1893
