Phillip, you are right. Richardson Gay did have a second wife. I dusted off my files and came across a few more things.
I also have Jordan Gay as being born in Franklin, N.C. Also
came across information that another researcher gave me a
few years ago. She had listed Jordan Gays parents as
Joshua Gay born about 1763 in Northampton, N. C. and Sallie
Brown.( She was not sure if the name was Brown,) born about 1770. Hope this can help. Also have you looked on the web page"The Gay family Geneology Exchange.? The way I found it, was I typed it in the search browser of my computer.
There is alot of information on the Gays, plus you can go to some of other Gay researchers web pages. And some of them have information about the Gays in North Caroline
