I am looking for information on Elizabeth GAY, her parents and siblings.

Elizabeth GAY was born 1685 in Wigtown, Ayr, Scotland. She married John McCROSKEY born 1680 in Wigtown, Ayr, Scotland.

Elizabeth GAY and John McCROSKEY moved to Antrim, Northern Ireland and had nine children. They then moved their family to Virginia. (Augusta Co.?)

The nine children were:
1. Esther McCROSKEY - married James HOPE
2. James McCROSKEY (1712-1782) married Elizabeth HAYS
3. William McCROSKEY (1714)
4. John McCROSKEY (1715-1811)married Sarah HAYES
5. Margaret McCROSKEY (1718) married William CARUTHERS
6. Alexander McCROSKEY (1722-1802)
7. Samuel McCROSKEY (1725-1779) married (1) Elizabeth Blair (2) Mary Blackwood
8. David McCROSKEY (1726-1887) married Grizzelle POAGE
9. Elizabeth McCROSKEY (1728-1797) married Samuel HOUSTON

Have you been able to prove John McCroskey was born in Scotland? I show him born in Wigenton, County Anterim, Ireland. I have no proof. My McCroskey/McCoskey line travels from VA, KY and IN.

Saw your inquiry re: John McCroskey/Elizabeth Gay. My research indicates my ancestor is their son John m. Sarah Hays with KY/VA/IN/KS connections. Would love to share information.

Kyle,
Found your post on GAY family message board. Believe that I descend from the John McCroskey / Elizabeth Gay marriage through their son John who m. Sarah Hayes. Do you show children for John and Sarah (Hayes) McCroskey? My info starts with Joseph, son of John and Sarah? who m. Martha Gillespie. Next is Joseph who m. Christiana Anderson and from there on most of it comes direct from family records.
I would be very interested in source documentation for the Scotish and Irish births. Also any clues your research might suggest for me to search in for the Gillespie and Anderson connections.
George
