Benjamin Jones Jayne MI/NY

Hi, I am looking for information on a Benjamin Jones Jayne. I am descendant of his daughter Mary (Polly) Jayne. The only information I have (and unsubstantiated at that) is that he was born in Smithtown, Long Island, NY on 6 June 1782 and died on the 14 April 1851 in Fenton, MI.

I have a photograph that is like a double length post card. One one side is two pictures with various people in an automobile with the caption "The First Generation of Living Descendents of Benjamin Jones Jayne". On the flip side, there is a large group photo that states, "Descendants of Benjamin Jones Jayne met in First Annual Reunion, Fenton, Michigan, August, 1910." None of the people in the photograph is identified.

If anyone else has this photograph and can identify anyone, I would greatly appreciate it. I also have the photograph on disc and can send it to anyone who may be able to do so. I will, of course, be delighted to send to anyone else who may be related to Benjamin Jones Jayne or who is just interested.
