I am interested in finding the parents of John R. Gay who was born on July 9, 1828 in Georgia. He married Minerva Louisa Fincher who was born on October 10, 1842 in Alabama. They were married in 1858. He died May 17, 1908 in Sulpher Springs, Texas and she died November 13, 1904. They are both buried in Sulpher Springs, Hopkins co. Texas. According to information written by my mother, the father was James Gay who was born on a farm in Coweta, Georgia in 1800. She did not mention who the mother was. She did write that John had two brothers, William and Thomas and two sisters, Abby and Delia. This information seems to fit with James Gay who married Susannah Cates and his father was Allen Gay and his mother was Abigail Castleberry. I can not find proof of this however. Help!!!
