I lived in the area, but it was just a fluke. My Gays went to the south from VA and ended up in MS before the 1840's.

Did you know that Arthur Jones, of Art Jones Travel, was married to a Gay? He passed away in the 1990's but she might still be living. She was supposedly very knowledgeable about the Gay family in that area.

My family moved to Tippah Co. MS in about 1840 from TN. Would you be from the same line? Edwin Gay came from Edgecomb Co., NC and died in TN. His wife and only child, a son, moved to MS about 1840. She remarried and I can't remember hisname at this time. This line goes back to VA where Henry Gay came to VA in about 1628.

Are you connect to this line??? Look forward to hearing from you.

Linda, I too am seeking Gay family from England around the same time to Virginia to NC. I don't know for sure what my Jonathan's father's name was ( from England) and in Virginia is but I had previously thought his father's name was John Gay because I saw no other possilities. What I know is my first ancestor is NC is Jonathon Gay in Northampton County. I know he was born in the 1700's (it was thought in England but now I think Virginia) I am positive he was not born in NC. Do you know Where in NC your Gays settled? Do you know if Thomas Gay had a brother? Look forward to your answer. Sallie

My first ancestor, Henry Gay married Joane. My second ancestor, Henry Gay, II married Jane Lawrence. My third ancestor, Henry Gay, III married Mary. I would like to see what you have and see if we can help each other connect lines. Look forward to hearing from you.

I am a descendant of Henry Gay of Isle of Wight County and have extensive research on it. What research have you done and what can you not prove?

What is your connection to Isle of Wight County? Do you branch off of Henry Gay who married Joane/Jane?
