The enumeration of Jay consists of Sheets 84-96; use the arrow at top left to page forward. Two sheets were not scanned properly; names of heads of households on those sheets were obtained from a subscription site.
The enumerator used phonetic spellings; be prepared to check over the entire list for the person you're researching, as different spellings may have affected alphabetization.
