HI bob, i posted the info on Thomas Gay. He was my g-g-greatgrandaddy. I am trying to put together my family tree on this side, and having a difficult time trying to find out where he is buried, who his parents were, siblings, etc.
My grandmother was Thomas' gay's granddaughter. when she past away, she had written down some family history that stated Thomas lived near Stevenson, Al. and had acquired a lot of land. His hired help, for some unknown reason, poisoned the family milk. this killed Thomas and 3 children. Thomas died 7/4/1875, daughter Mariah Elizabeth ("lizzie"), died 7/2/1875, Zullie died 7/3/1875, and finally Margie died 7/6/1875. His daughter, Martha Adeline Gay, was my g-grandmother and i know from family that she passed away with some type of stomach problems (possibly from the milk!). Thomas' wife, Martha J. Maxwell Gay, is buried at Whites Hall Cemetery in Valley Head, Al. I visited this cemetery recently, she is buried there with most of her children. I have photo's of the gravesite if interested.
do you have any information on thomas or his family that may be of any interest to me?
