Henry C. Lay was born in 1823. In 1859, he was elected Missionary Bishop of the Southwest, overseeing Arkansas, Indian Territory, and parts adjacent. Lay became Bishop of Arkansas when the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Confederate States was organized as an independent church. After the Civil War the church reunified and Lay once more became missionary bishop. In 1868, Lay was elected bishop of a diocese in Maryland and held that office from 1869 until his death in 1885.
