According to this source-

Emily Jane McColgin's mother was Sarah Hayes.
I haven't seen the proof of the Hayes surname but other
statements in the article appear to check out.
In the 1850 Census Hamilton Co #972 this Sarah is shown age 52 born in TN. 1860 #999/1000- age 61 b TN. (Both of these census records are available on-line). As researchers of these McColgin's know, the children of Thomas McColgin gave varying statements in 1880 and 1900 census reports concerning the birthplace of their mother.
As far as I know this new information gives us the best chance of uncovering the maternal McColgin origins.
If anyone makes a breakthrough I'd appreciate hearing about it.
By the way, our descent from Emily Jane McColgin is through
her daughter Nancy Sneed (1851-1912).
