In the book,*Genealogical History of the Gassaway Family* by William Rutherford and Anna Clay (Zimmerman) Rutherford, the authors say, "Anne Gassaway was named the daughter of Col. Nicholas Gassaway and Hester Besson, daughter of Capt. Thomas Besson. The name of the first wife of Col. Gassaway has not been proved by the compilers. If correct, Col. Gassaway married sisters." (p. 107). They gave no source for who "named" Anne the daughter of Hester. I got the book through an ILL from a local university library: it's not for sale anywhere I could find. Google it on Google books. Or check WorldCat to see if it is in a library near you, and check with your local library to see if you can get an ILL.
