Giles D. Gay is my great-great-great-great grandfather.
I have at list Of at least 16 children credited to him and Maybe three marriages. I only have the names of two possible spouses. Mary A P Gilbert and Mary A Chambers. I have two dates for Mary Gilbert's birth 1823 and 1842. The dates I have on Mary Chambers is 1825-1828 (?). I cannot believe Mary Gilbert gave birth to 16 Children. Can you help me in getting the facts straight.
Thanks

Hi,
I've hit the same wall, Giles is my GGGgrandfather, and I've not found any links earlier than the ones you mentioned. I hope to go to NC soon and do some search work there.
Somewhere I have John W. passing in TX, but no date or location., I'll post up anything I find.

Gary,
I am glad I am not the only one! I live in Wilmington, NC is there some searching I can do? I am related to the line of Gay's that did move to Texas. They were in East Texas - Fannin County mostly.
I am happy to do some research, but I need some guidance.

Jennifer,
Giles was supposedly from Stokes county NC, which is where I guess the search should start. If we could find his parents it would really help in the back tracking.
We moved from TX, to East TN, and got into the thick of my Moms side of the family. There are a number of Gay's in this area, but I've not found any relation yet.
This stuff will keep you up at night =)
